THE JACKIE FACTORY PRESENTS
BROWN PARTY 2017
THE KOMPOST KABARET
SUNDAY OCTOBER 15
The legendary JACKIE 60 theme party returns for its annual edition in a brand new East Village venue - CLUB CUMMING - already loved by the hometown crowd. THE BROWN PARTY began in 1991 as a spoof on the gay theme parties of generations past, and grew into a NYC nightlife tradition and piece of club Art. This year's edition was inspired by the CLUB CUMMING cabaret-tinged decor and will feature Cabaret cliches, Dadaist and Weimar touches and even a bit of Oktoberfest amongst the familiar brown soundtrack and dress code.
Brown Party DJs WITCH CAMP (AMBER MARTIN and NATH ANN CARRERA) spin Sixties and Seventies rock, folk, esoterica and more, with JACKIE 60 theme queen ALTHEA LOVELESS opening. Performance highlights will include Chanteuse JOEY ARIAS, the BROWN CHORUS LINE starring POISON EVE, DARLINDA JUST DARLINDA and ERIC SCHMALENBERGER and SEND IN THE BROWN, with JACKIE MCS PAUL ALEXANDER, HATTIE HATHAWAY and CHI CHI VALENTI.
The event returned in 2015 as part of MOTHER FIFTEEN (celebrating fifteen years since the eccentric, artistic Meatpacking venue MOTHER
closed its doors). Reborn for a new time, with a fresh AND familiar crowd, the Brown Party now returns annually, most recently at the BLACK ROSE on Avenue A and now at CLUB CUMMING.
