Underground Thursday Rewind: "Labour of Love" by Hue & Cry

Tomorrow night, Friday, September 14, I will be DJing at the Lush & Lively cocktail hour at the Time Out New York Lounge at New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street (between 8th & 9th Ave) from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM. The music emphasizes horns and strings, so there will be jazz (classic and “nu”), latin, international orchestral and big band pop (like this Northern Soul-inspired 1987 barnstormer from Scottish duo Hue & Cry, huge hit in the UK, didn’t even dent the charts here) and – of course – lots and lots of disco. The Cosmo special is only $3 from 6:30PM to 7:00 PM, and there are $5 drink specials until 9:00 PM.

Find the Hue & Cry video below.

"Nightlife is what you make of it" is central theme to The State of Gay Nightlife

We hope you’ve enjoyed reading our State of Gay Nightlife series over the past week.  We’d like to thank everyone who contributed throughout the week; it was interesting to read your responses and get your feedback.  It seems the central theme to most of the responses is that New York is constantly changing and though nightlife is different than it was, is really is what we make of it.  At the same time, nightlife is an industry like everything else, and at least it still exists in whatever form it may be. There are people willing to put the time, effort and money into it and we all have the opportunity to go either along force the ride or sit this one out. We can chose to go out and participate or stay in and entertain ourselves in other ways.  Whatever your choice, be safe and have fun.

The State of Gay Nightlife: Response from Party Boy Scott Williams

Well, this address was a bit of a downer, huh! For someone who is so concerned about the “horrible” state nightlife is in you would think they would write something that would attract people to it, but too each his own I guess. Nightlife nowadays is fun! Come on guys, it is what you make of it, and to be honest, all these people who have been around the block and just sit around and complain about how it “used to be” and how it “is no more” are just being such a drag. Those are the people who need to not go out. You really are putting quite a damper on everyones parade.

The State of Gay Nightlife: Response from Performer Mimi Imfurst?

Editor’s note: Apparently there is such a thing as DQT, or drag queen time. Performer and RuPaul’s Drag Race alum Mimi Imfurst has agreed to write a response for the State of Gay Nightlife series but we have not received it at this time.  We understand obligations and such, and everyone has a hectic schedule, so if and when we do receive it, it will be posted in its entirety.  Sorry to disappoint you today folks.  Please check back tomorrow for our patron response.

In the meantime, enjoy this video of Ms. Imfurst performing some public service on the streets of New York.
