Party Pick of the Week: Full Frontal Disco at Akbar

4356 W. Sunset Blvd., Silver Lake, Sat., April 5, 10 p.m., $10.
Flamboyant, fun and flirty: The fete known as Full Frontal is best described with F words. And this Saturday it's also about fashion ... Hi Fashion, that is. The arty dance duo and their crew have been getting tons of buzz thanks to a huge movie placement (G.B.F.), fab videos and grand live shows. They can and do pack L.A.'s bigger venues, but the intimacy of F.F. (in Akbar's dance room) remains a favorite spot to catch them. They're regulars there even when not performing.
Resident DJs Slash Fiction (Henry Self and Mick DiMaria) keep the floor here full and fierce all night, and deck opener Nelstar provides a frothy lead-in. Nels will be celebrating his birthday for this bash, so expect all the regulars to be raging and wearing their freaky finest, most especially host Mario Diaz, star of the new documentary Club King, about this sexy promoter and his parties both in N.Y.C. and here in L.A.
