New Year’s realness time: Are you burnt out? Broke from the Christmas gifting glut? Did you max out on glitz and blitz on New Year’s Eve? Hey, it’s gonna take a while to get back in the groove for a lot of us. This party aims to do it for ya with a chill vibe yet glam mood.
Hosted by dragalicious DJ/Rhonda door diva Phyllis Navidad and Courtney “Fruit Fly” Nichols at the newish Golden Box (formerly Writers Room), this gilded grotto will fittingly feature some golden-boy DJs: Travis “TK Disco” Kirschbaum (half of Split Secs and part of San Fran dance collective 40 Thieves), Victor Rodriguez (of the legendary Club Beige and like a zillion other sizzling gay and straight soirees) and DJ RaQuel (aka James Rockwell), known for his rockin’ residency at the Downtown Standard. Sounds will range from sexy house to frisky disco.
This space is, by the way, really golden and boxlike, with disco balls all about and a floor laquered with Interview magazine pics. Decompressing can still be divine, after all.
6675 Hollywood Blvd., Hollywood, Sat., Jan. 17, 10 p.m. No cover. More info here.
