THE JACKIE FACTORY and BATH SALTS PRESENT
THE BROWN PARTY
WEAR SOMETHING BROWN
WEDNESDAY JULY 1 2015
THE BLACK ROSE
117 AVENUE A NYC
JACKIE 60 producers THE JACKIE FACTORY (JOHNNY DYNELL, CHI CHI VALENTI, KITTY BOOTS + RICHARD MOVE) threw their first BROWN PARTY at the brand-new club in 1991. A tongue-in-cheek
take on the era's ubiquitous BLACK PARTY and WHITE PARTY on the gay "circuit", the night was an immediate cult hit. Along with the spectacular NIGHT OF 1000 STEVIES (now in
its 25th year), THE BROWN PARTY became one of the Tuesday night party's Annuals, and was staged every year till host venue MOTHER closed in 2000, and occasionally since.
As the crowning event of MOTHER FIFTEEN, celebrating fifteen years since the eccentric, artistic MOTHER closed its doors, Valenti and Dynell return with PYRAMID club founder
HATTIE HATHAWAY, and the protagonists of Brooklyn's beloved, soon to close weekly BATH SALTS to stage the first Brown Party since 2006's "LOVE-IN" edition on THE FRYING PAN.
The bill is still in formation, but already includes WITCH CAMP (AMBER MARTIN and NATH ANN CARRERA) for a DJ set and some folky strumming, JACKIE MC extraordinaire PAUL ALEXANDER,
DJs SAMMY JO (SCISSOR SISTERS) and ALTHEA LOVELESS (original BROWN PARTY Lounge DJ) and performances curated by SEVERELY MAME and MACY RODMAN of Bath Salts. Other luminaries lending a hand are EDITRIX ABBY of
BURNING MAN, Big Daddy of Gay Nightlife DANIEL NARDICIO, and more.

WEAR SHADES OF RUST, REPURPOSED WOOD, CHOCOLATE, MUD, MACRAME SHAWLS, BROWN TWEED, SIENNA, UPS BROWN, CHAMOIS, LOWER EAST SIDE ECOLOGY CENTER LOGOS, BROWN PLAID, BURNT UMBER, LOOSE-WEAVE BURLAP, BROWN STEAMPUNK, HAND-TOOLED LEATHER, EARTH SHOES, COFFEE OR TEA TIE-DYE, OR ANY OTHER BROWN AFFECTS.
