Party Pick of the Week: Dragula
4216 Melrose Ave., Silver Lake, Sat., April 26, 10 p.m.-2 a.m.
Drag from the dark side is the thematic thrust behind Dragula, a monthly performance art - meets - dance club experience. This month, RuPaul's Drag Race favorite (if not a top finalist) Miss Kelly Mantle shows why she was too scary/sexy for TV with a guest stage spectacle.
The Boulet Brothers of Black Unicorn host the drag competition at this one, so you know some evil behavior goes down onstage. Forget about lip synching for your life; this one is about selling your soul and hexing your sex.
Other "Exorsisters"/performers include the legendary Squeaky Blonde and the always shocking/rocking Saint Peter D'Vil. DJs The Men's Club Soundsystem keep the ghouls and grinds going into the night. The competition's $400 in cash and prizes come courtesy of the Stockroom and Syren Latex.
