JOHNNY + CHI CHI ON ANA MATRONIC’s BBC 2 RADIO SHOW DANCE DEVOTION: A JACKIE 60 LOCK-IN
Johnny and his wife/ partner in crime CHI CHI VALENTI spend a dishy, club-historic hour with ANA MATRONIC on her hit BBC 2 Radio show. For the show’s first-ever “lock-in” with club pioneers and pavers, their NYC Nineties clubhouse JACKIE 60 is the topic. Of course Johnny and Ana get deep into the music of his legendary Jackie dance floor, discuss how the club came to be and pass on tales from the Meatpacking District’s halcyon nights.

Free and available for ten more days here (the interview is the second hour of the show).

SHOWS AND EVENTS

BETTE BATHHOUSE & BEYOND
NOLA SOUTHERN DECADENCE

SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 1

Johnny heads back to his second home New Orleans for the 2nd Annual BETTE BATHHOUSE & BEYOND at the ALLWAYS LOUNGE during the annual Labor Day rites of Southern Decadence. Impresario DANIEL NARDICIO and his DWORLD crew present this hit night – last year’s edition (see photo) sold out. The brilliant AMBER MARTIN pays tribute to 1970s BETTE MIDLER AT THE CONTINENTAL BATHS and Johnny will be spinning “Bathhouse Disco”. Everyone will be in towels – there’s a mandatory clothes check. The ALLWAYS is one of Johnny’s favorite NO haunts, so he’s doubly looking forward to this!

SEPTEMBER’S LAST DANCES ON FIRE ISLAND

Johnny begins Labor Day weekend at his Friday night residency at the spectacular DWORLD UNDERWEAR PARTY on 8/31 at the ICE PALACE, Cherry Grove. This is the last Friday night of the season (and always madly packed) but the beat goes on into September. On Saturday 9/8 the party moves to Saturday nights through the month. Johnny will also spin the SPARTACUS PARTY (yup, think the movie) at the magical BELVEDERE HOTEL earlier that night. It’s been another record-breaking Summer and Johnny’s loved every beat of it – in the birthplace of Gay Disco, no less.
