GROOVE IS IN THE HEART FOR WHEN PUSSY FAGGOT! TAKES ON LONDON

New York’s legendary ‘Alternative Queer Art Party’ comes to London



When? Saturday 12th May 2012

Where? The MacBeth, Hoxton, 70 Hoxton Street, London, N1 6LP


FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY

“This is a party with serious art chops...” New York Times

PUSSY FAGGOT New York Cityʼs pre-eminent alternative queer art party is bringing the show to London as part of their European Tour.  


Featuring pond-hopping talent from both sides of the Atlantic:

Lady Miss Kier (of Deee-Lite “Groove is in the Heart” fame) (NYC)
Gio Black Peter (NYC)
Shane Shane (NYC)
Colin Self (NYC)
Jonny Woo (UK)
CocknBullKid (UK)
A Man To Pet (UK)
Verity Susman (Electralane) (UK)
Alexander (UK)
Bryony Kimmings (UK)

Encompassing performance art, spoken word, dance, drag, live music, DJs and video art, PUSSY FAGGOT! is fiercely contemporary even as it harks back to the legendary East Village scene of the 80's and 90's when art, fashion, performance and club culture collided.

PUSSY FAGGOT! succeeds in bringing together “one of the coolest, most uniquely blended crowds around—pussies, faggots, dykes, trannies, you name it.” - Time Out New York

Internationally, PUSSY FAGGOT! has been presented at festivals in Manchester, UK and Zagreb, Croatia. Back in the United States, the party has traveled everywhere from Philadelphia to New Orleans – and even a rural farm in Tennessee! The site-specific nature of PUSSY FAGGOT! has lent itself to successful presentations in a range of venues inluding nightclubs, dive bars, art galleries and barns.

”You have to admit, “Pussy Faggot” is a catchy title for a party. It pairs male and female, straight and gay, and as an epithet itʼs pleasantly jocular. Itʼs so extreme itʼs funny.”
-Time Out New York


See you there...
