HALLOWEEN 2022

JB-2x1-2022.jpg

TWO SHOWS!  TWO NIGHTS!

PLUS Costume Contest, Guest DJ Set, and more

starring Jan from RuPaul’s Drag Race and The Neon Coven!

 

Halloween starts NOW and it’s time for a Double Double (toil AND trouble). The night begins with the return of JANNIFER’S BODY, a blood-soaked love letter to queer horror and the emo-punk music of the early millennium. But the horror show doesn’t end there… we’ll keep dancing til we raise the dead with a guest DJ set, costume contest, and A SECRET LATE NIGHT SHOW: a second performance so loud, so legendary, so gay that we can’t even tell you what it is! But, rest (in peace) assured:

There will be rock and roll! There will be murder!

There will be a Floor Show like you’ve never seen or heard before!

THE IMMERSIVE NIGHTCLUB PHENOMENON

“a party-inducing Rocky Horror transplanted to a 1990s Madonna video”

-THE NEW YORK TIMES

"OSCAR at The Crown shouldn't be. As a concept, it's at once simple, complex, brilliant and celebratory even while steeped in its own subversion... You'd think someone somewhere must have tried something similar before. Wrong... It's an entertainment juggernaut. This is the place you want to be."

-METROSOURCE

"a K-Pop/J-Pop/Scissor Sisters-on-speed electronic dance party euphoria"

-THEM.

CONCEPT ALBUM NOW AVAILABLE ON SPOTIFY and APPLE MUSIC.
