Hear my dulcet voice describing tonight’s Alibi Glam Dance Party
By Laura Marrich [ Wed Jun 8 2011 2:32 PM ]
In preparation for tonight’s big-ass gay pride glam dance party at Casa Esencia, Mike Mackenzie had me on his morning radio show to talk a little bit about it. (Kudos to Mike and co. for supporting Pride Week and Albuquerque’s gay community on-air at KKOB 93.3). I’ve been on the radio a handful of times, and this was by far the most fun I’ve had doing it. Take a listen.
Musical selections from tonight’s Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party

Tonight the Alibi’s Group Hug and Albuquerque Pride are hosting the Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party at the beautiful Casa Esencia (800 Rio Grande NW) in Old Town. This will be an evening filled with tiny bubbles, delicious canapés, shiny tunage and general fabulousness.
The entertainment is as follows: La Juala, fronted by sultry international torch singer Georgina, will perform live at the beginning of the evening, and will be followed by DJs Cassyle (c’est moi), Mello, Tahnee and Nicolatron. Naturally, there will be a drag show as well. To get a feel for the general aesthetic, below are some classic glam rock track that we’re likely to play. For good measure, we’ll be spinning disco and electro tracks, too.) You can also click here for a playlist full of early glam. Enjoy!
P.S. You can RSVP to he party here.
