PostSubject: Blog from Club Syren's Irv LA Club Scene   Thu Jun 11, 2009 9:39 am

This comes from a blog by Irv over on the Club Syren MySpace. This is all just cut & pasted from his blog, so all the credit goes to him...

ALTERNATIVE CLUBS -- GENERAL

Shits and Giggles – Fridays --NOTE: NEW LOCATION AS OF 5/29/09 @ MONTE CRISTO CLUB

Montecristo Club
3100 Wilshire Blvd.
(Entrance and parking on Westmoreland, just down from
Southwestern School of Law)
Los Angeles, CA 90010
www.myspace.com/shitsandgigglesla

Comment: This is one of my favorite clubs in L.A. A great diverse mix – about 60% gay and rest a mix of lesbian, TG, Genderqueer, and Straight. Victor Rodriguez and Chris Bowen are the promoters and resident DJs. The space is great – a old downtown movie palace, located in the old movie theater district, that’s been renovated into a night club. The main room is huge, with upstairs balcony, a stage and three bar areas. There is also a basement room.

Victor and Chris play some of the best dance music in L.A. and have great special DJ guests. And let’s not forget about the fabulous Drag Queen Hostesses: BarbiQ, Phyllis Navidad, Wu Sang, Josephine and Zachary. The vibe is always great – people of all genders and sexualities getting together and having a great time and celebrating.

Beige – Tuesday Nights
7213 Sunset Blvd.
Hollywood, CA
323-850-5350

Victor also does a Tuesday Night promotion at Falcon called Beige. He’s been doing this promotion since the mid-90s. His partner is Rusty. Primarily a gay crowd but all welcomed. With Victor, it’s all about the love.

Miss Kittys Parlour – Once-a-month, usually the 3rd Friday of the month.
At the Echoplex
1154 Glendale Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90026 (Enter through the alley)
www.misskittysparlour.com
www.myspace.com/starfactoryproductions

Comment: I love Miss Kittys! When friends ask me to describe it, I tell them, envision a Berlin underground Cabaret or Speakeasy of the 20s/30s, updated for the 21st Century. I first began going when they held their nights at the small Parlour Club, which is now Bar Lubitsch. They do once-a-month events now and they’re fun and wild. Again, I love it because of the diversity – Club Kids, Goths, Fetish folk, gay, queer, genderqueer, TGs. All are welcomed. And the music is great. The current DJs are Slash Fiction, Henry Self and Mr. M.

You have to check it out at least once. Miss Kittys is the creation of Jame and Christos, The Boulet Brothers, and Miss Kitty. They’ve created one of the most unique club events in L.A., putting in extraordinary effort and creativity.

Miss Kittys B-Day celebration is this Friday, May 22nd. Become a friend of theirs on myspace or get on the mailing list and receive notices about cover discounts

Bootie L.A. – First Saturday of Each Month
Echoplex
1154 Glendale Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90026 (Enter through the alley)
www.bootiela.com
www.myspace.com/bootiela

Comment: Bootie L.A. is a monthly mash-up club. What’s a mash-up? It’s when you mix together two or more songs. Bootie started in S.F. and now they have branches of the club throughout the states and overseas too!

For Bootie L.A., the anchor DJs are Paul V, of Dragstrip 66 fame and other clubs, Adrian and Mysterious D from San Francisco. Adrian is a TG DJ. They also have notable guest DJs and performances each month. Again, a great diverse mix of people.

Dragstrip 66 – Held about every 3 Months
Echoplex
1154 Glendale Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90026 (Enter through the alley)
www.dragstrip66.com
www.myspace.com/dragstrip66rocks

Comment: Dragstrip 66 is the creation of Paul V and Gina Lotrimin aka Mr. Dan. They’ve been throwing this outrageous theme drag party for 16 years now and still going strong. Each month has a particularly dress theme and cool drag performers and the music is great. I’ve been going to DS66 events since the late 90s and love it. Definitely check it out.

Comment: This monthly event occurs on the 4th Friday of each month. The two promoters are Kitty and Cameron of Kontrolled Chaos, Inc. The venue, Ivar is great space -- two floors, large dance area, large stage, several fetish play areas, and lots of places to sit and lounge, upstairs and down, and smoking patio outside with outside bar.

Comment: The folks behind HELL are starting a new fetish night on 07/11/09 at the famous Circus Disco.
