Best Queer Dance Party (2011)


The bears have Chelsea and the professionals have Hell's Kitchen, but where do the relatively hairless and broke gays go to play in Manhattan? Inhabiting the banquette-lined basement of Von, Woahmone might just be the party. Nath Ann Carrera and Savannah Knoop co-DJ this monthly, mixed-queer, mixed-genre soirée, while Nica Ross projects spacey visuals culled from found videos of homemade porn. The music is era-spanning, ranging from the Appalachian bluesman Hasil Adkins to occult British prog rock band Black Widow. Said Carrera, "It's as though Doris Wishman's granddaughter became a Wiccan and started a bath house." First Tuesday of the month, Von, 3 Bleecker Street, 212-473-3039, (10012)
