With HARD L.A. canceled, fans of fairy wings (though of a more elaborate sort) still have a big fete to flock to this weekend: the two-day Labyrinth of Jareth Masquerade Ball, a fantasy world and costume fest with live acts, performance art and a slew of DJ and dancing-fueled amusements. Park Plaza, 607 S. Park View St., dwntwn.; Fri-Sat., July 16-17, labyrinthmasquerade.com. More intimate but equally spirited mayhem and movement will be had at Incognito, which presents a showcase from Excentric Muzik artists and DJs including Fergie aka Robert Ferguson (BBC Radio 1, Mixmag, Pioneer DJ) and Erphun (Bedrock). King King, 6555 Hollywood Blvd., L.A.; Fri., July 16, incognitola.com. And finally, Trannyshack, San Fran's notorious drag-fest dance club returns to L.A., this time featuring performances by Cali (Northern and Southern's) most ferosh queens, plus a special appearance by NYC's Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black's Kembra Pfahler. “Beats and bumps” from DJs David Banjela & Hotne$$a. (More about the S.F. tranny invasion in this week's Nightranger.) Echoplex, 1154 Glendale Blvd., L.A.; Fri., July 16, trannyshack.com.
