Bus Station John

Finally, the real reason you should hop out of your leopard-print Snuggie and jump into those inappropriate short shorts on a Thursday night. While DJ Bus Station John presents obscure retro-electro vinyl at “Le Perle Degli Squalor” at the Hot Spot on the first Saturday of each month, it's at the smutty, kitschy Aunt Charlie's Tubesteak Connection where he shines brighter than that disco ball your mother never wanted you to see. Focusing on pre-bathhouse-era beats, Bus Station John is as much of a political statement as he is an extreme dance-party enthusiast. Even the biggest musical snob or queer history student can get a grade-A education from this man for only $4. It's almost enough to make you — gasp — question the relevance of Lady Gaga.
