Click and Drag 3.1
Normally Culturebot isn’t in the party promoting business. But we’ve got a soft spot for Click and Drag! Back in the 90’s it was quite the party and we’re glad to see that the Jackie 60 and Mother crew are still around and keeping the fun alive. Mark you calendars now for what is sure to be one of the major party events of the Fall Season!

“SURELY SOME REVELATION IS AT HAND” – W.B. Yeats, THE SECOND COMING, 1919
The pioneering “Cyber/Fetish/Gender-Hacking” party CLICK + DRAG, which ushered out the 20th Century in style and returned with a bang last year, announces its second annual Future-Spectacle for October 17. Two of Click’s founding producers – director and visual artist ROB ROTH and nightlife impresario CHI CHI VALENTI of THE JACKIE FACTORY will stage this year’s epic CLICK + DRAG 3.1/ THE SECOND COMING at sympatico venue SANTOS PARTY HOUSE. CLICK 3.1/ THE SECOND COMING is a two floor, evening-length epic, preserving the night’s strict dress code and pansexual mix of fetishists, artists, gender-hackers and “Glam Nerds.”
CLICK 3.1 was inspired by the W.B. YEATS poem THE SECOND COMING, and its themes of new gods for (often terrifying) new Ages, “Spiritus Mundi” or universal subconscious, and a post-Christian world. CLICK 3.1 celebrates gender-bending new prophets and prophetesses, and the neo-tribalism that borrows elements from a myriad of religions to create new believers and practices. CLICK + DRAG 3.1 will feature multimedia works directed by Roth and installations and performances by dozens of collaborators.
This year’s highlights will include trans icon and vocalist OUR LADY J, who presents an electric take on her GOSPEL FOR THE GODLESS with piano and choir, original Click DJ SAMMY JO, gender-illuminati cabaret troupe THE PIXIE HARLOTS, DJ JOHNNY DYNELL (who also creates the night’s signature mix for the clicknyc.com website) and Method Go-Go icon FALON. MANY more aspects of this night are still in formation, please check the links below for updates as they are added.
