THE SAINT AT LARGE?
RITES XXXVI: THE BLACK PARTY?
Brooklyn Warehouse Location TBA
Strange Live Acts
New York City?s most notorious fetish party burrows deeper underground? striking paydirt in an abandoned Brooklyn warehouse.?
(New York, NY) – The Saint At Large, gaydom?s preeminent party, announces this year?s BLACK PARTY theme: ?The Mineshaft.?? Inspired by the dark, dangerous and decidedly masculine miner culture with a wink and a nod to the groundbreaking 70?s-80?s hardcore sex club located in the once desolate Meatpacking district, this year’s Black Party will transport party attendees into a subterranean labyrinth of music, madness, musk and men. After a 24-year residency at Roseland Ballroom, it’s an apt theme that reflects the party’s ongoing trajectory towards a more ?underground/ alternative? experience, a back-to-basics warehouse scene grown popular in nightlife capitals around the world.
Held on the weekend closest to the vernal equinox, this annual Rites of Spring celebration has firmly established itself as ?Gay New York?s biggest night of the year.? Structured as a 5-act opera set to a progressive electronic dance soundtrack and featuring five headlining DJ?s and awe-inspiring Strange Live Acts, the Black Party consistently taps the zeitgeist for a fashion forward fetish clan eager to reveal its darkest fantasies at this one-night only, no-holds barred bacchanalia. Renown for its ambitious productions, cutting-edge innovations and spectacular staging, the 35-year old event stands alone as a spectacle attracting attendees from around the globe longing to experience New York on the edge.
