Sarah Gianetto, who writes a nightlife column on azcentral.com, reports of a party scheduled for the night before All Hallow’s Eve at Sadisco at Phoenix club Jugheads. It’s a “blood feast” party a la Party Monster, she says, at which attendees are encouraged to dress like the characters and “get bloodied under an Industrial, EBM and Noise mallet, or knife yourself to some random aural assault.” Whatever the hell that means. The party listing promises DJs Squalor as Michael Alig, ? as James ‘Saint’ James, ///she/// as Angel, Aversion as Richie Rich, and Nixx as Christina.
Meanwhile, here in Los Angeles, Avalon is having a Club Party Monster Pre-Halloween Bash on October 27th, that features WOW’s Thairin Smothers, formerly of Cherry, on visuals and Michael Alig’s ex, Keoki , on turntables. The flyer promises not only James St. James in the flesh, but threatens to bring “all the original club kids from the NY & LA club scene.” It doesn’t say bringing them what, but if they’re the original kids, the club better have wheelchair access.
Frankly, I don’t understand this worship of James. What’s the big deal? He’s the friend who drives me to and from work since my license has been suspended (jealous?) and he puts on his pantyhose one leg at a time like the next guy.
