Your Friday Guide for January 25, 2008

Okay kids, tonight is the night that The Jaded Gay DJ and Lord Kook lay it down at Deco with Fuck Shit, Let's Dance! There are a lot of great things going on this Friday, including Gui Barrato (*sigh*), but if you want to support the alternative gay dance scene, please come out and shake your hips with us!

The Jaded Gay DJ Recommends: Charlie Horse at the Cinch
Best place to go out and have a cheap drink while being entertained by drag queen antics. Music by DJ Dirty Knees and Bearzbub is more rock and new-wave oriented, but at least it won't interfere with your conversation. Check out my latest review of Charlie Horse at The Cinch.

Suggestion: if you are going to list Charlie Horse every week you might consider actually going to the myspace page to figure out at least what the theme or perhaps who might be performing.

For instance. Tomorrow is Cure night!

Actually, I do check the various websites for all the clubs nights I list. However, there's nothing on The Cinch's website that lists the myspace for Charlie Horse, so I can only go with the information that's available to me. What's the URL for the Charlie Horse myspace?
