Group Hug

Ballroom Blitz

Hot damn, it’s bound to be sweaty this week as Albuquerque Pride 2012 kicks off. Temperatures could soar over 100 degrees on Saturday when the crowning festivities take over the city. The better to glue your glitter with, my pretty!

From the bravery of Stonewall rioters to the chief pro-Prop 8 witness reversing his stance on Friday, there are countless shining moments of LGBTQ history to celebrate. With that in mind, the Alibi and Albuquerque Pride proudly extend a sparkle-laden Group Hug to start the revelry off right.

Exclamatory particulars of the Pre-Pride Glam Dance Party:

Wednesday, June 27 (Tomorrow!)

9:30 p.m.

18+ welcome, but you must be 21 to drink. (Don’t forget your ID!)

Lotus nightclub, 211 Gold SW.

A mere $5 gets you in the door.

DJs Tahnee, Nicolatron and Cassyle will spin disco / electro / glam hits to whirl your Disco Queen into a frenzy. Rebel Donuts’ sugar wizardry will have her licking glitter frosting off your face. Hotpants, shiny jumpsuits, towering collars, feathered hair, space oddities—all mightily encouraged.

Zoology crushes it with debut album

The 11 tracks on Zoology’s debut Krush Love buzz with electricity, but the musicians keep the energy tightly controlled, unspooling it meticulously. It’s tense. In a good way. The lyrics are clever and the rapping is precise, with multiple voices flowing smoothly around each other. Under the beats—involuntarily head-nod-inducing ones—melodies conjure hints of soul and jazz.

The Party Don’t Stop

Don’t let the impending work week get you down. On Sundays from 4 to 11 p.m. DJs Flo-Fader, Nicolatron, OHM, NTOX and Diamond Tip keep the spirit of the boogie alive with Weeksend at the Albuquerque Press Club (201 Highland Park Circle SE). This Sunday will feature grilled foodstuffs in exchange for cash, plus games including a water balloon fight (weather permitting). All ages are allowed until 9 p.m. The Press Club, being a private establishment, means all guests must sign in, obey the club’s rules and do a dance. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)
