DANCE
bi at Sundown
Just what we need: a dance music-fueled early-in-the-evening weekend finale for the young and sexy among Philly’s LGBTQAI (and straight) scene. Yeah, this set, dubbed bi at Sundown by creator Bruce Yelk, is much more than a bar crawl through the Gayborhood. This—like the hot trailer that dropped for a it a couple weeks ago—is a slick and sultry affair that’ll get you home in time to rise early for work on Monday mornings.

“The ‘bi’ portion is dual pronged,” Yelk recently told PW. “First, the party is bi-weekly, and that seemed to be the easiest way to convey that fact. Plus, I am known to produce several well-known LGBT events, but I wanted this event to be much more inclusive. I think ‘bi’ works on that front—to let everyone know they are welcome.”

Certified party starter Robbie Tronco will help launch each Sundown dancefest, but there’s an array of sure-to-please guest DJs already booked through spring—tonight’s kickoff features The Perry Twins—all of whom have an international profile and spin for both mainstream and LGBT crowds. “I wouldn’t get the flavor I want if I just picked exclusively mainstream or gay DJs … I think people will really love the mix of music, and I expect many raised hands in the crowd,” Yelk says. “I like happy parties, and the music will make you feel good. Why have a party if it’s not fun?”// BILL CHENEVERT
