First Friday
First Friday
Start growing out your bangs now, because we are celebrating everyone's favorite introverted pop diva, Sia! We are swinging from the chandelier in excitement for November's First Friday, and we're bringing all the cheap thrills for you to enjoy.

That's right - it's FIRST FRIDAY - Night of 1,000 Sias!

Doors open at 8pm where the incredibly talented, Sade Bolger (you may have seen him at this year's Pride Festival!) will make you hardcore swoon with his original music for the early portion from 8-9pm.

From there, put on your big bow and dance along to our resident First Friday spinner, DJ Llu from 9-11pm. You'll want to part the hair from your eyes because DJVU is back in the house, making his return to FF for the 11pm-1am slot. Your elastic heart will be thumping to the music.

And of course, there is also the midnight drag show - featuring performances from your hosts as well as our own lil' Maddie Ziegler - VENUS!

As always, your hosts Emoji Nightmare and Nikki Champagne will be in-house entertaining you all night long.
The Steph Pappas Experience
Steph Pappas aka The Steph Pappas Experience received her first harmonica at age 12 as a Christmas present in lieu of another train set. She was born in Jamacia Plains, Boston, Massachusetts on July 5 (so essentially this is her big, gay, & FABULOUS birthday party). Her early love of baseball nearly led to another career, but influenced by legendary players such as Odetta, Led Zeppelin, Joan Baez, Janis Joplin the guitar was calling her name in which Steph found her true calling.
