MISSTEPS presents MikeQ

Nick Msall ’15 writes in:

Come out to Eclectic this Thursday for the 3rd and final installment of Missteps. This show’s headliner is none other than the Fade to Mind signee and Ghe20 G0th1k affiliated vogue-house “prince”, MikeQ. Before he takes to the stage, there will be a special movie screening of a documentary that details the nature of the vogue and ballroom culture in the late 80s. For those of you interested in some of the most eccentric and fascinating niches of American LGBT culture, this screening/concert is surely something you will not want to miss.

First surfacing in the blogosphere in 2011, MikeQ’s production came to be hailed by most critics of underground club as groundbreaking. Prior to the efforts of MikeQ, the largely gay and transvestite supported “ballroom” movement, whose origins can be traced back to New York in the late 1970’s, had received little recognition as a musical movement and culture. Since MikeQ’s emergence, however, vogue house and ballroom have only gone on to receive more international recognition. In particular, a compilation released by Soul Jazz records earlier this year has helped draw attention to some of the scene’s earliest innovators who were active as early as 1976.

200 Church Clothing Swap

Remember that party you went to? The one where you saw that girl in that overwhelmingly sparkly dress-tube-thing? Or that boring riveting lecture on fruit flies where you saw that guy in the cool band t-shirt? As the weather gets warmer, it’s been really tough to go sit on the hill where everyone is dressed more ironically more interestingly than you. Fortunately, Reese Sy ’13  is a problem solver, and has given you the opportunity to steal everyone else’s clothes:

Need to spring clean? Don’t want to pack up all your old clothes? Tired of your old wardrobe? Want to mix it up? Come to the 200 Church Street Clothing Swap!

Date: Saturday, May 5th
Time: 1 pm – 4 pm
Place: 200 Church
Cost: Swap is a 1:1 ratio. Also, clothes must be cleaned (we want to wear you, not smell you)

What’s more, unclaimed clothes (aka sweater vests) will be donated to Middletown Goodwill.
