Four decades after he gave up the baby rattle, Michael T celebrates his birthday by taking up another silver spoon and heating up Lotus' downstairs lounge as your DJs Mike Simonetti (a birthday boy, too), Justin Miller, Jacques Renault and Michael T drop the needle in encouragement for you to put on your prohibition-era zoot suits, don your adder-skin boots, drink bootleg gin and shake it to 70s kooky, cokey disco, shady house, sexy electro and 80s dance jams. The Tatler-presented Michael T & Yana “Shiny Mama” Chapanko’s ‘You Don’t get Older... Only Better’ double b-day bash will showcase more mop-topped fops and rat-tailed dandies than Britain’s Tatler magazine, and more underaged, closeted boys than all of Seventeen’s readers.
Come early for a performance by KUDU at midnight, stay late for a late-night performance by House of Ninja. Your hosts are Moondust, James Coppola, Dina Delicious and Amanda Lepore. Ride off into the sunset toward this wild, wild, west end 14th Street party that continues the next night, moving into Brooklyn at The Bangers-presented Michael T’s...Dirty Bklyn Boys in Beards & Boots Birthday Party at Savalas. He was born when Johnson was president, and johnson presides here where boys skaking their lassos and spilling so-called “baby killing” seed are shouting for a different B.aines J.ohnson. Michael T gets his just deserts from a “blow-out” presentation by the cake-covered girls of burningangel.com. Your guest DJs are Michael T, Punk Ass Jason and a surprise guest, spinning dirty electro, booty jams and cheesy late 80s and early 90s “dance classics.” Your hosts are Miss Riss, G-G-G-Ghost! and Andy Shaw & the Shaw Family.
