I've said on a few occasions in this space that when I die, I want my funeral to be at my all-time favorite gay bar event, Prince night at Berlin. Well, kiddies, it looks as if I'd better get to kickin' the bucket. This Sunday's installment of the funktacular funkdown will be the last.
It's sad to come to terms when an old friend leaves. I guess this will just be another night we'll be discussing when we're old and grey and trying to convince the 'kids of today' how much fun things used to be. Oh, but they'll be too busy dancing at their Jonas Brothers nights and zipping around in their hovercars or some such contrivance.
See you in 2032, kiddies.
Clubhouse Productions brings us Upgrade, the first annual hip-hop, house and R&B Labor Day party at the Congress Theatre this Sunday night.
I do realize that it's wildly inaccurate to use a phrase like 'first annual.' In order for something to be annual it has to happen every year and, as the future is still the future, if something only happens once, it cannot be referred to as annual.
I shall lay aside my cross of syntactical correctness only to put forth the great hope that this party becomes 'annual.' Tune in next year for the proof.
SOMETHING OLD BECOMING NEW AGAIN
The long-rumored move of the Chicago Eagle is finally going down. If you remember Clark's ( and if you did it right you don't remember much ) , imagine that space filled to the brim with leathermen... and the men who love them. That's what the future has in store for the new Eagle. Help them close down the joint this weekend.
The fate of the current Eagle space remains to be seen. The going rumor is that it will be turned into a dungeon area for Man's Country. Not that far-fetched a rumor when you think about it...
Ever wanted to send Joan Crawford to a raunchy sexfest? C'mon, you can admit it.
Live out your fantasy at Jackhammer this Saturday, August 30 for Flesh Hungry Dog's special benefit to raise money to send local art rockers The Joans to the Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco.
Do it for the children. Christina and Christopher would love to get the bitch out of the house for a few days. And nothing calms down a screaming screen queen like a tag team of burly bears in a San Fran back alley.
