Club Nights and Events

FIRED UP!

Johnny Dynell Spins the Gay Nineties
Friday, December 1

JOHNNY DYNELL returns to hit East Village boite CLUB CUMMING for the third monthly edition of his 90s house homage FIRED UP! This month he welcomes BOYBAR and JACKIE 60 Legend and NYC High Priestess HRH PRINCESS DIANDRA (photo above) for a show cum Boybar Homage at 1 AM. The two previous editions have been dancey and joyous, and we hope you’ll join us again on 12/1.

House Music was born in Chicago in the mid Eighties and brought to NY by WAREHOUSE DJ FRANKIE KNUCKLES to LARRY LEVAN’S DJ booth at the mythic PARADISE GARAGE. JOHNNY DYNELL, spinning Fridays and Saturdays at THE TUNNEL, helped introduce this new sound in 1986, and brought his own brand of it to the newborn Jackie 60 four years later. Now he returns to this signature Dynell early Nineties soundtrack for FIRED UP! For a sample of this sound listen to Johnny’s “THAT JACKIE FEELING” podcast on his Soundcloud page.

THE HOLIDAY HANG 2017

THE JACKIE FACTORY and THE MOTHERBOARDS NYC host at Club Cumming
Sunday, December 3

The tradition of a HOLIDAY HANG, an online community’s designated space for venting, shaking out the holiday demons or occasionally even spreading cheer, was celebrated on our virtual community THE MOTHERBOARDS NYC for many of its early years. That tradition has since merged with the frequent JACKIE FACTORY holiday shows and parties, which began in 1992 at our first JACKIE CHRISTMAS SHOW at LA MAMA. This year we bring the noise to our favorite new East Village haunt CLUB CUMMING, where Factory co-founder DJ JOHNNY DYNELL reigns at a new Sunday Tea Dance, ST(U)D.

MARTI DOMINATION at A VERY JACKIE XMAS @ LA MAMA, 1992, costumed by KITTY BOOTS.

Admission is free and the delights will include Factory starlet HEATHER LITTEER, aka JESSICA RABBIT DOMINATION, performing at 7. To grease the wheels even further, CLUB CUMMING has offered 2-for-1 drinks for the official party hours 6-8 PM. We’d advise dancing shoes as Mr. Dynell will be spinning. Of course holiday costuming with Yule, Christmas, Hanukah or Jackie couture in mind is always appreciated, but not mandatory.
