This is our BIGGEST event of the summer- Definitely not to be missed! The evening concludes with a fast-talking, country-style auction of works by "Friends of HiChristina!" including: a couture dress by New York designer Alisha Trimble, an oil painting of yourself with Christina and Fritz by artist Patrick 'The Mangina' Bucklew, a hypnotism session with Audrey Sussman PhD, a screenwriting class with award-winning screenwriter Jacob Krueger, and more! Don your new disguise, dance the strange jig, drink the tasty drink and be a part of the excitement as HiChristina takes us all up up and away!

PRIDE 2010/DANCE ON THE PIER: DANCE 24


OUT:
Dance on the Pier will once again take place on Pier 54 at 13th Street and the West Side Highway on Sunday, June 27th from 4:00 PM until 10:30 PM. The finale to a week of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride events in New York, The Dance on the Pier was born out of a time when our community could not dance, openly and proudly, with other members of our LGBT community. It is a celebration set to the New York City skyline and a reminder of how far we’ve come these past two decades.
In addition, we shall also have a performance by a special guest. As with tradition, we do not announce the name of the special guest with the aim in creating an exciting, anticipation filled surprise for our guests. The event will end with our traditional fireworks over the Hudson River. Dance 24 is sure to be the ultimate event of Pride Week in more ways than one.

On Saturday June 26th, New York will experience partying like never before... Everybody knows the stories: bronzed bodies, breasts, biceps, DJs rocking the dance floors into orgiastic excess. Europe is the land of Club.
And who’s King?
Matinée Group. These are the people behind some of the hottest parties ever, taking over Space@Ibiza every Saturday night. Think Circuit Festival, the biggest gay and lesbian event in the world with 50,000 people. Or the Matinée Summer Festival, the Matinée Winter Festival – circus burlesque performers dangling above an ocean of throbbing lasers and spellbound heads …

Now they’re coming here.

Matinée blows open NYC Pride 2010 with a bang. Over-the-top décor is part of a stellar production direct from Ibiza. Expect a light and sound spectacular in Governors Island, the New York equivalent of Sydney Harbor, home of the Harbour Party for Sydney Mardi Gras. Mixed crowds and gorgeous gogo dancers all night long to the beats of a superstar DJ fresh from the European heat.

You better be ready.

JACKIE SACCOCCIO


ART:
Jackie Saccoccio: One to One,” at Eleven Rivington, contains just a single painting, but it’s a hyperexciting eye-opener. Running fifteen feet from wall to wall, ceiling to floor, it’s as substantial as a steel-plate Serra, as lush as late Monet, but located somewhere between a flickering film still, a weather system, and an ammonia-filled primal swamp. Angled sheens of color and foggy white transparencies, echoing dripped latticeworks and vertical pillars of brawny painting, provide structure and organize it architectonically and symphonically, with repeating motifs, perceivable progressions, and … well, you go figure out the rest. It’s worth it. (NYMAG)

LIZ MAGIC LASER


ART:
Liz Magic Laser at Derek Eller
615 W. 27th St., New York, NY 10001
nr. Eleventh Ave.
With the infinitely odd, weirdly scary show of Liz Magic Laser (her real name!), the Derek Eller Gallery continues its march toward quiet greatness. After its excellent winter show of Jessica Jackson Hutchins, whose work leaped out of the last Whitney Biennial, Eller is now giving us Laser’s insane 145-minute video restaging Man Equals Man, the 1926 play by Bertolt Brecht. Laser made this political exercise in various ATM vestibules around town, where intense actors recite lines as customers try to make deposits and avoid the interruptions. Her work also appears in P.S. 1's “Greater New York.” A star is born? ( NYMAG )

THE BEAT VOL. 3


OUT:
The Beat Vol. 3 seems to be just on time. You needed some new music to go with your Summer wardrobe, no? Suffice to say we need your wardrobe to go with our next installment...with you in it, please. (Or you sans wardrobe, but I'm not liable for anything that happens to you if you're going to be like THAT.)
On June 3rd we're at back to our original hatching grounds, R-bar. And boy have we got a treat for you. Special guests Lady Miss Kier AND Savage Skulls are joining the boys of BOOKWRMZ (DJ Nita and Magnan) and Palms Out Sounds (Chaz Requina and Jason Pants) for a BEAT-down like no other. Can you believe it? I can't. I guess that the birthday wishes of interplanetary ambassador, One-Half Nelson, are stronger than those of us earth folk. Joining Nelson in a night of debauch is his Gemini Sister, Nicky, oft hailed as Susan from the House of Ballestration. Because one freaky birthday is never enough.
So get your space suits on, off, or however you wanna wear it, and come help this queen age gracefully on our dance floor at what is clearly going to be our biggest event yet.
Featuring our not so guest host, Erickatoure Aviance!
And Gayletter are back for another round.
