When it comes to giddy good times, no club pumps like a gay club. This week, two parties known for their eye candy, both gay and straight, start the new year in new locales.
On Friday, Dollz Haus Productions' weekly event, TRADE!, gets fiercer on Fridays at the Lexington Bar. Boy booties shake during the “urban burlesque” and “boylesque” shows, along with colorful drag spectacles, while DJs and drink specials bring out the vampy and vivid crowds. This one will run every Friday, but that's no reason to miss this week's grand reopening.
]Next week, another flamboyant fete has made an even more high-profile move: Evita, formerly at Blok in Hollywood, now calls WeHo home. DBA, a velvet-rope space that also features curated performance art, seems the perfect home for Evita's eccentric fashion and electric energy. Sexy theatrical vignettes from the minds behind NYC nightclub the Box are featured regularly, meshing androgyny, fetish and freaky fun for the best Tuesday night in town. And like TRADE!, this one runs every week, so you have no excuse to miss it.
