It's only the second week without making a compilation for Doggy Style and I kind of miss it already. I find myself digging around for new videos despite myself.
Some Communards shuffled up on my iPod tonight so I did some YouTube-ing and came across this great live version of "Disenchanted," possibly one of my favorites from the 80s. If you ever love laying around in the dark listening to music, this is a good one.
And if you love dancing around in the dark then you will be thrilled to know about the one-year anniversary of Macho City this Saturday!
There have been many wonderful things to come out of the alternative gay scene downtown, and I can trace some of my best times in Detroit to evenings at Sass, Atlas Wednesdays, Fierce Hot Mess and recently (dare I ruin the mojo?) Cabaret Night at Cafe D'Mongo's. But Macho City has been especially especial for me.
It really hit the mark for this forty-nothing homo, and I could list the things I love about it (and I have) but mostly I just love how informed it is. If you came of age in the 70s, 80s, 90s or the Aughts, there is something for you at Macho City.
It is important to be respectful of the fact that we are guests in a gay leather bar, because part of the Macho City charm is an accepting and joyful crowd, but I cannot urge you strongly enough to check it out. It is one of the things I am most thankful for here in Detroit! Thank you Mike and Scott for making gay life in Detroit unique and awesome!
