Let's Have a Trashy Disco Kiki

Trash Disco Night • DJ Romann_T • disco, pop

For those of us that have made it past 30, going to a club and listening to trap, mumble rap, dub step and top 40 is maybe not the first choice. Welp, we're in luck. Put on those jingle bellbottoms and enter a boogie winter wonderland as we do the hustle in the bustle of the holiday season for Twist Nightclub's Trash Disco Night. The LGBTQIA club, open to all, brings us a fabulous night of escapism and entertainment. Get glammed out because the best disco-themed costume sends some lucky disco queen home with a $50 prize, hopefully enough to cover the bar tab and then some. And since we're faced with the winter solstice this evening, the shortest night of the year, be prepared to go hard on Friday, Dec. 21. The party kicks off at 9pm and DJ Romann_T blasts the funky beats of the era until the doors shut at 2am. Goes without saying that this is for a 21 and over crowd. Don't worry about not having pockets for cash in that bitchin' ensemble because there's no cover.
