Honey Soundsystem with Juanita More!
Sunday, May 13, 2012
Better than: Bottomless mimosas and eggs with hollandaise.
It was 11 p.m. on Sunday, and we were standing in line beneath a giant fiberglass cow. A lone cyclist in a panda costume pedaled by across the street. As we shuffled towards the entrance, a loose-suited bouncer glanced at Avalon and looked me over incredulously: “You're here for Honey Soundsystem, right?” As it happened, we were. But, you can't blame him for asking — Holy Cow on Sunday is an unlikely place for a straight couple. Then again, Holy Cow seems an unusual choice for a gay party. Visit the club on Friday or Saturday (or, better yet, live the experience through pictures) and you'll find yourself in a straight meat market. What could compel a party like Honey to work with a venue like Holy Cow? The answer to that question lies in the party's aesthetic.
