The only fun in town for a happy hour on Friday

Shag Frenzy + Factory = Match Made In Heaven

It was brilliant last night.  Absolutely fucking brilliant!  If you made it, you are thanked, loved and appreciated.  If you didn't, we have one more scheduled next month and that is it so far.  We need to keep Factory positive about the night.  Please come out if you can in August on the 19th.  Death In Jim will be spinning some tunes with us, and that always spells excitement with a capital E.  Speaking of E, I played so much acid and baggy last night that I really felt like the Factory club was Fac 51 The Hacienda.  Loved up for sure.

Pics are up.  They are here.

Some faves of the evening:

I've no clue who stripey girl is, but from the rear she looks fabulous.

Final Shag Frenzy at The Webster Underground tonight

Tonight, 1 July, is our final club night at The Webster Underground. We've decided to take up an offer that neither us nor Fredo could refuse. So please, if you can, support us at the lasy hurrah in the original location. We're going to have a blast, and I plan on playing Haddaway's "What Is Love" in order to be Roxbury'ed by lovely ladies as I was last night. Maybe even another slow dance number full of those old awkward high school slow tempos we loved so well.


9PM sharp, 18+, $5...we want the dancefloor moving all night long. So do it.
