THE GAY ’50s


With all the ’80s parties running rampant through town, it’s easy to forget there were other decades that provided fun dress-up opportunities. Sequinette, herself a drag queen from another era, to the rescue! Her Sock Hop is a new monthly queer dance party, with a soundtrack dating to 1965 and earlier, provided by DJs Scott Ewalt and Fucci. At tonight’s late-night inaugural, do the Lindy hop with burlesquers, downtown performance-art types, drag queens, and queers in poodle skirts. At 1 a.m., cheer to the good old days with a violet champagne toast.
