Black Unicorn Anniversary Ball

Dragonfly, 1650 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, Fri., March 15, 9 p.m.-2 a.m., $13 cover.

It's been a year since the fetish fete Black Unicorn made its debut. How better to celebrate than an anniversary ball — one in which the birthday spankings are guaranteed? Like the Boulet brothers' previous party, Miss Kitty's Parlour, Black Unicorn's vibe is as amiable as it is audacious. The looks here might be overtly sexual, even intimidating to vanillas, but the atmosphere and most of the patrons are nice and jolly. Gays, straights, BDSM enthusiasts, goths, disco dollies, drag queens, pin-up/burlesque babes and everything in between, dance and prance around the floor and enjoy interactive live performances.

The birthday bill features Mynxii White, Downtown Melissa Brown, Carina Crash, Chromegirl, Johnny Cubert White, Rudeness, Kim Nelson, Nylon Girls, Miss Kitty and many more; DJ Dave Banjela will spin sexy dance sounds from electro to dark retro. Unlike other fetish parties, all are welcome here; the dress code is suggested, not required. But why not dust off your leather chaps? It's fun to get creative — and the best “kinky couture and pansexual pageantry” in attendance will be rewarded.
