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.
