Ghouls rule Halloween night at the totally fey My Chiffon Is Wet party in NYC. This year, the w(b)itches are taking on cult animated series Monster High…featuring the offspring of classic horror monsters, including Dracula, The Zombies, Frankenstein, The Mummies and more! With big apples to bob and plenty of nuts on the hob…it’s gonna be bloody good!
New York City’s #1 queer pop party for the LGBR (Lady Gaga, Beyoncé, Rihanna) community, My Chiffon Is Wet celebrated its two-year anniversary last week with its #1 fey fanatic Alan Cumming! After over 100 shows, 50 stolen tambourines, 75 broken China Town fans, 6 broken bathroom doors, and tons of celebrity hosts/guests, including Dita Von Teese, Patricia Field, Nomi Ruiz, Michael Musto, David LaChapelle, Patrick McDonald, Andy Cohen, Marina Dimandis (Marina and the Diamonds), author Michael Cunningham, Cazwell, Broadway actor Theo Stockman, Amanda Lepore, celebrity gossip columnist Rob Shuter, and many more, MCW is twirling into its junior year!

DJ Paisley Dalton unleashes another summer sensation with Urban Realness Landscape, the fourth soundtrack to her Thursday-night revisionist party My Chiffon Is Wet in New York City. As always, Paisley combines the underlying infinite sadness sentiment associated with any good disco track with the gleeful newness of the flourishing digital dance re-edit movement. Serving up plenty of hissing symbols and boozy beats, URL aurally evokes today’s exigent socioeconomic times in New York, replete with a respectable helping of sparkly tech effects to lift the spirits of any daydreaming nu disco fan. Featuring tracks by Alkalino, Loleatta Holloway, Sam Sparro, Azealia Banks, and Swedish re-edit masters Drop Out Orchestra, and art work by iconoclastic Belgian cartoonist Piepke.

DJ Paisley Dalton’s meteoric rise continues! Her latest release, My Chiffon Is Wet Eastern Bloc Sessions Vol 1, is sort of the heartbeat to her smashing weekly party My Chiffon Is Wet at Eastern Bloc bar in NYC. Starting off with the latin groove No Hay Ritmo, you get the feeling that yr deep in the heart of Alphabet City and Jorge is DTF. Nu Disco darlings Jessica 6 and Azari & III make the cut with 90s inspired dance floor burners Prisoner of Love and Manic. And London horn players Hackney Colliery Band serve up a sickening marching re-imagining of R&B group Backstreet’s No Diggity. Plus, there’s tons of chunky classic 70s vocal jewels for the retro kiddies. But if u wanna hear the tunes live, you better come early, or stay late…the heart of MCW is full of campy pop topics, show tunes and other absolutely fey beats for diehard twirlers and exhibitionists!
