Higher Ground Showcase Lounge
18+, $12 advance/$15 day of party
It’s time to ring in the new year with New Queers Eve – the annual LGBTQ+ dance party event of the season, hosted by Emoji Nightmare & Nikki Champagne.
Drag Performances by:
Persephone “Pickle” Pétrin
and your hosts, Emoji Nightmare & Nikki Champagne
(not in order of performance lineup or prettiness)
Sets by DJVU and DJ Llu – ringing (and rhyming!) in 2018 with our favorite tunes from the past year.
DJ Llu is a life-long queer Vermonter, based out of Burlington, VT who makes radio on WRUV-FM weekly and spins in local clubs and at area events frequently. When Llu is in the club, Llu puts together eclectic sets of pop, hip-hop, mashups, and dance tracks that ignite any dance floor.
DJVU is a Vermont-based musician, producer, and DJ who has played clubs throughout New England, held residencies in Burlington VT, and toured the country as the touring DJ for pop singer Neon Hitch.
Emoji Nightmare and Nikki Champagne are your hosts for the evening! Emoji & Nikki are the dynamic queens and co-hosts of the VCAM show, The T with Emoji & Nikki, and have been featured on Stuck in Vermont, WCAX, and Seven Days. Both have headlined and hosted several of the Queen City’s biggest drag shows including Glitter & Duct Tape, Paint: A Drag Cabaret, The Vermont Pride Festival, Queer Pop-Up Dance Party, and SASS.
As co-producers of Queen City Drag Cabaret, the queens curate shows that provide a safe space for performers and audience members of any identity: a non-misogynistic, non-racist, and non-sexist show whose focus is on the art of performance. We ask that all members of the cast, as well as audience members, respect this space by being aware of inclusive language, personal boundaries, and most of all mutual respect (in other terms: no T, no Shade, no Pink Lemonade squirrel friends).
18+ for this party! It is the ONLY QUEER New Year’s Eve party in Vermont. Don’t miss what has sold out in past years.
