Courtesy of the promoters, today's Swag Tuesday prize is two tickets to Trippin' On The Moon 2, the second installment of the reunion of the members and performers of NYC's legendary Saint disco.
Trippin' On The Moon takes place Sunday, October 11th at Soho's Santos House Party. Original Saint DJs Michael Fierman and Robbie Leslie will spin a night of Saint classics, with lights by original Saint lighting technician Richard Tucker. Advance tickets $35, $50 at the door (if available.) $20 admission to those with an original Saint membership card. The evening benefits Gay Men's Health Crisis, LifeBEAT and Equality Across America - the organization behind the National Equality March.Back in June, I raved that the first Trippin' party was "my best night out in a least a year, maybe two."
DJs Michael Fierman and Robbie Leslie gave us the full Saint journey - a soulful build-up, a joyous high-energy peak, and a lovely, lovely extended downtrip, complete with just about every Saint classic an old disco dog like me could think of. The sound system was pitch-perfect, clear, strong - but not too loud.Go here for setlists (in the comments) and videos that I took that night. And yes, it KILLS me that Remember The Party AND Trippin' AND the NEM are all on the same motherfrickin' night.
