DONT ASK DONT TELL: 8 YEAR ANNIVERSARY!


It’s been 8 years / 2,920 days / 70,080 hours since DADT first began back on January 25, 2011. During that time we have held close to 100 unique queer events for the city of Boston, provided a stage for over 130 performers, raised thousands for charity, and had around 20,000 people attend our shows. And we are just getting started. On January 26th 2019 we are back to celebrate eight beautiful years of love, expression, and the welcoming space that is and has always been DADT. This event promises to be extra colorful with balloons and streamers abound! It is a birthday party after all! ALL ARE WELCOME WHO WELCOME ALL.

With resident DJ Colby Drasher and previous resident DJ Coleslaw going back to back all night long! Playing everything under the winter moon to make you dance. Top 40, Remixes, House, Techno, Hip Hop, Throwbacks, you name it! Both these DJs have years and years of experience under their belts, so fear not- you will be appeased!

Featuring our reckless and wild drag show featuring a diverse blend of performers including:

Severity Stone
Juanita Percent
Kirbie Fully Loaded
Nuqueer Power
Hundred
Just JP
and Coleslaw

If you haven’t seen a DADT drag show you are missing out! Our performers are free to take chances and explore levels of performance other places discourage. So come hungry for a new experience!

No one buried a heart under the floor boards of the club? Because there is a pound pound pounding thats already beginning to emerge from Great Scott in Allston. This month, Boston’s most illustrious queer party Don’t Ask Don’t Tell returns to host its annual SPOOKY BALL!

With help from the bloody heartthrob guest DJ... 

AMERICAN DAVE
-----------------
American Dave is a Boston-based artist best known for producing tracks and DJ’ing sets that are untamed, high energy, not limited to a single genre, and are anything but boring. His singles have been released on Europe’s Top Billin Records, Together Festival’s 2018 artist compilation , and his self-released Independent EP, He is also a long time ally of the queer community and is super excited to play his first DADT.

DONT ASK DONT TELL: CLUB KID ft. DJ ACCIDENT REPORT



Wikipedia defines Club Kids as:
A group of young New York City dance club personalities led by Michael Alig and James St. James in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The group was notable for its members' flamboyant behavior and outrageous costumes.

As made popularized by the movie Party Monster in the 90s, being a club kid is all about freedom of expression and excess. Redefining the clubbing experience as being more than just going out in a cute dress or t-shirt for a couple drinks- Club Kids dress exactly how they want- and anyway they want. The more ridiculous, fantastic, over the top THE BETTER. This is the second edition of a Club Kids theme at DADT, the first time being back in 2015 when attendees went above and beyond expectations. 

To help us celebrate we are recruiting the fierce talents of….

DJ ACCIDENT REPORT 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Often seen alongside a roving gang of criminally-inclined naughty nurses, DJ Accident Report (AKA Eric Shorey) has made a name for himself by both charming and appalling crowds in Brooklyn’s underground queer and punk party scenes. Inspired in equal parts by high camp and horror, Accident Report plays an aggressively vulgar and ass-shaking mix of hip-hop, trap, vogue/ballroom, pop, Jersey/Baltimore club, and bounce music. Accident Report has also teamed up with notorious drag queens Ariel Italic and Lady Bearica Andrews to form a nightlife supergroup known as The Nobodies, an unlikely trio developing a cult following on YouTube. Playing internationally acclaimed parties like Patrick Buckmaster's Necronancy, Horrorchata's Be Cute, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music's New Year's Eve Everybooty celebration, Accident Report's skills as a beat maker have also been featured on the tracks “Bitch, I'm Kawaii,” “Finish Her!” and “Level Ya Pussy Up!” by Aja from RuPaul's Drag Race.

DONT ASK DONT TELL: 2000's ft Special Guest DJ COLESLAW


“It’s gettin’ hot in here” so you better unpack that “umbrella” before it rains! Otherwise we’re gonna be “trapped in the the closet” looking for a dry set of Abercrombie jeans and might fall “crazy in love”. “Yeah!” you’re gonna “lose control” when you see my “poker face”. So find me “in da club” because “we belong together” and “my hips don’t lie”- I’m “bootylicious”

Last month DADT took you back to the 90s to relive all your favorite hits and fashion missteps. Flash forward another month as we are bring you another decade to bite your lip in anticipation for- the MILLENNIUM.

Thats right, this August at DADT we are time warping back a decade to the marvelous era in pop music that is 2000-2009!
Listing all the artists is probably redundant but here are a few to trigger your high school or college memory:

Outkast
Gwen Stefani
Britney Spears
Destiny’s Child
N’sync
Miley Cyrus
Kelis
Pussycat Dolls�
ETC
__________________________________________
All these classics spun by special guest:

COLESLAW
Coleslaw is a staple at BBQs and also in the queer DJ scene. Along with being an established drag performer across Boston she has earned a reputation for pulling no punches on the stage or behind the decks. One of the original members of the DADT family, Coleslaw knows how to fulfill all the wishes of our diverse audience.

Resident DJ and party soothsayer Colby Drasher will also be helping out and will not let you down with his selections… PINKY PROMISE!


With a DRAG SHOW thats gonna have you “dropping” bills “like its hot” on stage featuring:

JUST JP

SEVERITY STONE

DONT ASK DONT TELL: 90'S REALNESS


You a ‘creep’? Howabout a ‘freak like me’? Because I’ve heard ‘all that she wants’ is more than ‘gin and juice’. In fact, this ‘fantasy’ is all about more than ‘emotions’ its about a whole decade!!! 

This month at Boston’s biggest queer party we throwing it all back to a very special decade, the nineties! Thats right, its all your favorite hits, all night long, to sing along to. ‘Groove is in the heart’ as you sport your favorite look to show off- when we think 90s fashion the possibilities are endless (and potentially ugly as sin) so have fun with it! 

Resident DJ Colby Drasher will be on duty all night- expect to hear (but certainly not limited to):

Whitney Houston
Janet Jackson
Spice Girls
C+C Music Factory
Cranberries
Aaliyah 
En Vogue
Brandy and Monica

~ PLUS ~

This months drag show will be ALL NINETIES and XXXTRA special as we introduce two new performers to the DADT stage:

Civilization

&

Kirbie Fully Loaded

——

There was so much great cinematography and TV from that decade so expect to see it all meshed together by our resident video artist and photographer Nick Day.
