Love Parade AND Big Freedia

Well folks, as you know it can be tough to decide when there are several events you want to attend happening in the same night. Tomorrow night, is one of those nights when decisions must be made. On the one hand, you've got Big Freedia, bringing her New Orleans sissy-bounce extravaganza to Red 7's inside stage. This is guaranteed to be a sweaty, wild uber-fun time. If you haven't seen Big Freedia on any of her previous trips to Austin then you are really missing out. I'm almost envious of you first timers because there is nothing I could tell you that could prepare you for the shear, pornographic, and pervasive ass shaking that will go down on and around Red 7's tiny inside stage tomorrow night. Tickets are still available if you want to catch Big Freedia and her set begins at 1am.

Thank Oprah, Big Freedia's set doesn't start until 1am because I definitely want to hit Elysium for ATX Hipsters' Love Parade party. The dance floor is going to be drenched in sweat as Austin's greatest queer DJ's each take turns playing some jams for the crowd. The cover charge is only $3 and the music starts after the Queerbomb parade ends. Don't celebrate gay pride at a corporately-sponsored street party on 4th. Join the hip-queers like me as we get our dance on with DJ sets by:

Also, I mentioned the $3 cover charge HOWEVER I forgot some highly important, other, details:

Eccentric Attire encouraged!
NO COVER for boys in heels
NO COVER for girls in fake moustaches or beards (or real moustaches or real beards)


Doors open at 9 PM

So, the deal is, I'm going to get my party on at Elysium and then sneak out for a few minutes to catch Big Freedia over at Red 7, then it's back to Elysium till the wee hours of the morning. I'm so excited!
