Columbia Heights Goes Gay!
The Wonderland Ballroom Returns to its Roots with Launch of new monthly eccentric/alternative gay Dance party!
The Wonderland Ballroom, the dancing/drinking oasis for Columbia Height’s hipster sub-culture, launches new monthly gay dance party, Pink Sock, the third Wednesday of every month. Starting Wednesday, November 18th, Pink Sock marks a return to the bar’s roots as it once served as an African-American gay bar in the early 70s.
This time around, Boston-native DJ RAD (Twitter: @ForeverRAD) will be MC’ing an orgy for the eyes and ears, as he pumps out the hottest ass-shaking jams from the most innovative and avante garde performance artists from the 70s-disco era, 80s-new wave, 90-house & hip-hop, to the freshest electro music of today. We’re talking everything from Grace Jones to Prince, Madonna to Lady Gaga, Miss Kittin to MSTRKRFT. To further stimulate and entrance you, there will be accompanying visualizations and home-made music videos that are sure to delight and disturb.
