Today's New York Post features this terrific article on the rock 'n roll behemoth that is the Motherfucker party, and Confessions from the Velvet Ropes is cited as evidence that the MOFO phenomenon is going mainstream! But did the gorgeous and talented Justine D. really pronounce The MisShapes "contrived"? I smell a Manhattan clubland turf war brewing!
For those who don't know, the Motherfucker New Year's Eve blowout will be held at REBEL this year, and all the rocker glittery glitterati and bisexual bad boys from the boroughs will be in attendance. Remember: Motherfucker is a dictatorship at the door and a democracy on the dancefloor - so work a look or New York's #1 doorman, Thomas Onorato, will send you straight to the New Year's gulag, whether that be McSorely's or in a time machine back to Xenon.
In Confessions from the Velvet Ropes, there is an especially wild tale from a past Motherfucker party in which nazi-like security guards ordered Mofo founder and DJ, Michael T, to turn off the music. It happened to be the last song of the night, "Love Hangover" by Diana Ross, a Mofo tradition and tribute to one of the party's influences, Studio 54. You may have seen footage of Miss Ross performing this iconic song, but have you ever seen her perform it on The Muppet Show?! Feast your eyes on the below clip, and have a Happy New Year!
