Linda Presents “The Drag Explosion”

11/4 - 7:30 PM

New York

Linda Simpson presents a special presentation of her drag-history slideshow The Drag Explosion as part of the exhibit, “Secrets of the Great Pyramid: The Pyramid Cocktail Lounge as Cultural Laboratory,” at Howl! Happening Gallery.

The exhibit recalls the Pyramid Club, when it was the “epicenter of the nascent East Village/Lower East Side artistic community,” and covers over a decade of creativity, from 1981 until the mid ’90s. Linda will be highlighting the weekly party that she used to host called “Channel 69,” which ran from 1990 to 1992.

Pix and memories galore! PLUS video footage of “Channel 69” by William Comstock and Karel van Aggelen. A multi-media extravaganza!

WHEN: Wednesday, Nov 4th, at 7:30pm
WHERE: Howl! Happening Gallery, 6 East 1st St (between Second Ave and Bowery)
ADMISSION: Free
