Glitter Dick performs at a benefit for Amy Clinkscales tonight at the Launchpad. Read Captain America’s article about the show here: Wham, Glam Thank You Ma’am.
The Alibi's Group Hug Glam Pride Party was a smashing success and dazzlingly fun. Casa Esencia started off really swank and we filled it with beautiful people.
Kicking-off the night was La Jaula, and not only are they terrific musicians, they're also all really good looking.
I just got off the phone with Lou French of Standard Diner, which will be providing 300 appetizers at tomorrow’s Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party. Rodeo Grill will also be serving an array of delicious snacks.
All of these canapés come with the $10 door charge. The fabulous affair unfurls tomorrow inside the secluded Casa Esencia, a gorgeous party spot housed in the old Maria Teresa’s restaurant on 800 Rio Grande NW.
DJs Nicolatron, Tahnee, Mello and Cassyle (our music editor!) will spin glam rock, disco and electro. La Jaula will kick off the evening with Cuban boleros, Argentinian tangos and Mexican ballads at 7 p.m. Plus, a drag show!

I always wrote off Hanoi Rocks as another lame, fake-o-tron ‘80s hair band ... until last night, when I was convinced otherwise. Much of the Finnish four piece’s early music, especially the song posted here, sounds like ‘70s power pop and glampunk. Sadly, at some point the dudes did fall victim to the generic ‘80s glam metal formula, but prior to that it’s pretty bitchin.’
