I recently got booked to be on a panel discussion happening next March, a consortium which would feature all kinds of nightlife personalities from the past, present, and future.
And it turned out that one of them is club-kid-leader-turned-club-kid-killer Michael Alig, who’s been detained in the clink since the naughty ’90s!
“How can he appear?” I wondered, all dewy-eyed. “Is he breaking out?”
“Well, he thinks he might be let out by the end of this year,” they replied.
But it turns out that was another false alarm.
Club entrepreneur Steve Lewis reports that Alig’s parole was just denied for a release this year. Alig’s not getting out till next November — and that’s definite.
So Alig’s panel appearance will only be via satellite, but in November 2011, he’ll be right up in your face again!
