Johnny and I are off to Minneapolis for the first time ever, to do a two-night club in an alley off Loring Park. If you live in the Twin Cities or have any tips while we are there, much appreciated.
And if you are in town, be sure to come check LOW LIFE out!
Here's the skinny:
SATURDAY JUNE 28 + SUNDAY JUNE 29
THE JACKIE FACTORY PRESENTS
LOW LIFE MINNEAPOLIS
NICK AND EDDIE
1612 HARMON PLACE, MN
FROM 7 PM EACH NIGHT
THE JACKIE FACTORY will present two days of "LOW LIFE" in LORING ALLEY during MINNEAPOLIS GAY PRIDE, joining a host of esteemed guests in town for this gay-la weekend. The alley adjacent to foodie-hipster hangout NICK AND EDDIE will host DJ JOHNNY DYNELL, MC CHI CHI VALENTI, CHI CHI LARUE, CIRQUE ROUGE, ALL THE PRETTY HORSES, tranny metal-punk band FAGGOTT, and a cast of neo-Edwardian Trannies, burlesquers, rubberists, and other local talent during evening hours.
This on-site work continues the Factory's LOW LIFE series, inspired by the Art of the Dive and brilliant LUC SANTE book of the same name. LOW LIFE has been presented at the HOWL FESTIVAL and London's RETURN TO NY as well as NYC venues including THE CONEY ISLAND SIDESHOW MUSEUM and JACKIE 60.
