You’re invited to the Alibi’s Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party

In the ’70s, rock and roll flew an intergalactic cruise ship to the planet Glitter and mined its three moons—Pleasure, Androgyny and Polyester. Its captains were the likes of Ziggy Stardust, The Sweet, Slade, Queen, Elton John, the New York Dolls, T. Rex and the cast of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Incorporating outrageous costumes and highly conceptual theatricality, this jubilant yet heavy sound that we know as glam was not just about amazing guitar parts (though there were plenty of them).

Albuquerque Pride is nigh, and for the third year, the Weekly Alibi’s Group Hug will be hosting a glam-rock-themed pre-Pride party. (Observe the photographic evidence of the fun had at Glam Dance Parties past.) We cordially invite you to drape yourself in flamboyant fabrics and celebrate tolerance and diversity with us at Lotus Nightclub on Wednesday, June 27. We’ll be ballroom-blitzing glam rock tracks all night long with plenty of ’70s and ’80s disco, and modern electro thrown in for good measure. The 2012 New Mexico Pride titleholders will hold court, and drag performances will ensue. Photo Booth Rentals of New Mexico will provide a free photo booth in which you can document your makeup handiwork. Free confections will abound as Rebel Donut will be crafting hundreds of sparkly donuts and cupcakes for all. Costumes are highly encouraged—if you have glitter pants or a silver unitard, this is the perfect opportunity to take them out of the closet.

Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party
