It's 'all out' on K' Road for ANZAC Eve

Mon 21 Apr 2008 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

With the Wigarama night of charity drag shows, a live band at SoHomo, and two dance parties, ANZAC Eve this Thursday night looks set to be a huge gay night of events on Auckland's K' Road. Live at SoHomo: Collapsing Cities Family bar's Wigarama night of shows will feature 63 entertainers on stage - including several of Auckland's best-known drag divas - to benefit gay community charity the Cartier Bereavement Trust. Entry will be by gold coin donation, with the elaborate event beginning with a sausage sizzle at 6pm, a prize raffle, and a free cocktail on arrival. Shows will be at 8pm, 9.30pm and 11:30pm, with Supermarket nightclub open downstairs until 6am. Local band Collapsing Cities will play a half-hour live set at SoHomo's special event at 373 K' Road. "Collapsing Cities are the famed band that cleaned up the bnet music awards last year and they've just released their first album early this month," says SoHomo promoter Paul Phillips. "This will be their last show before they move to London and begin an international tour that with any luck will lead them to international superstardom." [The band's recent video clip So I said Last Weekend is shown below.] ANZAC biscuits will be served on the night, along with other themed items to commemorate ANZAC Day. DJ's Raj, Donald Bennett, Marty and Mauri will feature at M2 Events' Phoenix Black Party black-themed party, also planned for Thursday night. "It's been a while since we had an awesome night of dirty house and light electro, so we hope you can join us in the Galatos basement for a fun and friendly party," says promoter DJ Marty. Guests are invited to 'dress in something black and sexy' for the dancefloor. Kiss bar at 309 K' Road also has a themed party, featuring DJ's Justin Sane, Tania M and David James, along with a crew of sexy DJ Station dancers. The Ultra-Violet White and Fluro Party will shine with UV lights and glowsticks - with guests asked to dress 'light and bright'. K' Road's Kamo bar will also be open as usual for its usual popular Thursday Karaoke night, where the first singer will take to the microphone at 9pm.
