SUNDAY NIGHT FEVER!
Check out my interview if you like tawdry gossip!
A little ol' teaser:
HX: What’s so great about disco?
Lady Bunny: It’s only the greatest dance music ever! With its gospel, soul and Latin influences, disco has a joyous, celebratory vibe - not like today’s dark, “it’s 5am and I’ve just peed my pants in a k-hole” dance music. “Soundtrack to Tweak By” is so worn out that yes, I think a 30-year-old disco track is fresh by comparison. At its height, the genre attracted the top songwriters, producers and artists, so the quality of this music is incredible. The disco era cultivated some of the gay community’s best-loved stars and some truly outrageous talents and characters with strong identities like Sylvester and Grace Jones. Who are today’s true dance divas? Kevin Aviance hasn’t had a smash in a while - unless you count her face!
PS: Sunday Disco Tea at Splash from 7-11 has been a blast. Last week I was amazed to see a dancefloor filled with guys and gals dancing to Debbie Jacob's DON'T YOU WANT MY LOVE and hitting all the 1-2 cha cha cha, 3-4 cha cha cha's with their glow sticks! Insane!
And this week, we have the incredible H.R.H. Princess Diandra (pictured below) performing as Disco Diana Ross at 10:00. Diandra's Diana impersonation is truly phenomenal, and sometimes this stuious method actress even gets really drunk like Diana in order to completely nail her character! Although she tends to get really drunk every night. Oh well, I'm sure she's just doing character research--what a pro!
