Schlumpadinka Couture

Shlumpadinka

The days of deep hibernation are over, but we’re still full on shlumpadinkas! Yes, Oprah taught us in the ways of the shlumpadinka a long time ago and now we’re embracing the art of letting go. Come dance with us in your floppiest shlumpy tent! Fall out of bed & onto the dance floor.

To fill the room with super chillaxed vibes we’re very exited to have Macy Rodman from NYC with us. The Lazy Girl video is on heavy rotation in our beds. Macy recently released the debut EP HELP.
Join us to see Macy’s first performance in Canada and get HELP!

Take this shlumpadinka quiz!
If your answer is maybe to any question you may be a shlumpadinka:
* Is your birthstone melatonin?
* Is your favourite designer bed, bored & beyond?
* Is your favourite food deep fried anything?
* Are your nighties by Ralph LauRen, the father of Kylo Ren?
* Are you guilty of the nonstop frump?
* Are you in a really anal, nonstop relationship with a chocolate bar?
* Do your new friends ask you: are you on email?
* Are you pretty sure it’s the Chinese year of the sloth?
* Is your favourite InterNetflix show Watch Again?
* Are greasy food stains on your oversized clothing just a funky pattern to you?
* Have you ever used a plate of spaghetti as your comfy cushion?
* Is your goal step count a single digit?

We’re very happy to co-present this shlumpy night with Images Festival

About AVAN LAVA
AVAN LAVA have staked their claim as one of New York’s most vibrant pop acts—a kind of natural bridge between late night club culture and kaleidoscopic pop theatricality. In doing so, the trio of Ian Pai (producer/drummer), Le Chev (producer/keyboard/guitar) and TC Milan (vocals) have earned a fervent fanbase and managed to bring their raucous live show to points all over the globe.

The band’s current EP — Make It Real — (released in March via Atlas Chair Records) serves as a euphoric pop blueprint for their increasingly dynamic live show: a communal party experience characterized by nonstop dancing, the occasional blast of confetti, and a profound sense of joy.

Join Us At The Sculpture Garden

Everything Is Coming Up Rosebuds

Born and raised in West suburban Chicagoland, Shaun J. Wright spent most of his teen years immersed in the sounds of house music. His love for dance music expanded throughout his high school years as he partook in the underground dance scene now globally known as Juke. While in undergrad at Morehouse College in Atlanta, he developed his skills as a dancer/voguer in professional dance companies and the ballroom scene.

After acquiring an MA Fashion Curation, from the London College of Fashion, Wright enjoyed an active career in fashion in New York City. That is where he met Andrew Butler, founder of Hercules and Love Affair, and began a whirlwind collaboration with the ensemble as a vocalist.

It’s Going To Be A Gory Hole

Get your strap on for a wet and wild ride on the catpig! Yes, ’tis the season of the Halloqween. It’s time for all the gargoyles to come out to spray their gender fluids on the CryptkeepHer. Lez go.

We have an all star performance line up that will turn the stage into a deep and dark gory hole:
*** Jenna Syde
*** Keith Cole
*** ManChyna
*** The Nurse & Monster
There’s a couple of Hotnuts virgins in the mix, it’s gonna get sticky!!!

And who is the nastiest of them all? $100 goes to the best Halloqween costume! The winner also gets humped by the catpig for ten minutes. Purrrrrrrrrrroink.

Hotnuts on a WilderMess Safari

This was the biggest Hotnuts yet and we almost got lost in the WilderMess. I really wouldn’t have mind if there was no way out. So much fun at The Garrison. Thanks everybody for coming out and dressing up.

The HD stage really got the girls going. Mary re-wrote MJB’s hit into a Deep InsideHer Ass. Then, the grinding wonder Miss Jamaica took over with her 4:20 heavy jams. The staggering beats by Dj No Problem got us whining & screaming. Such a hot WilderMess!

Watch clips of Miss Jamaica’s and Mary’s performances after the jump.
Also, more pictures and all pics on flickr.

We’re back for Pride – Saturday, June 30th with extended license till 4am. Get ready for retox!

Genie in a Hotnut: Return to Dubai

That was the perfect last Hotnuts at The Beaver, where we always felt at home. Thank you Beaver team & much love. Now, after 5 years, the magical carpet is going to take us to a new destination.

Thanks to all Genie’s for making last Friday such a special night and keeping the mirage alive. Watch Gentlelady Regina’s performance at the end of this post. There was a serious camera malfunction during Nancy’s XXX number (aka she is incontinent), so we can’t post it hurrr.

See you after the summer break at our new location in Dubai!

Genie in a Hotnut

This is the last Hotnuts at The Beaver. After 5 years of fun, we’re sad to leave but also looking forward to new adventures. Hotnuts will be back at a new venue after a summer break.

Make this a scheherazadian night & dress up with us for Genie in a Hotnut: Return to Dubai! Let the Fata Morgana come down on The Beaver.

For this special occasion we have two performers:

Gentlelady Regina
Her first ever performance was on the Hotnuts stage in September 2010. Since then, Regina and the Light Fires have taken the city by storm.

Doc Nancy
She’s Proddy’s drag mother. We spent months convincing her to make the trip from Frankfurt and leave the home for elderly people behind.

Hotnuts at The Lobster Beach Resort

That was the perfect 5th Hotnuts anniversary. Thank you all for dressing up and packing the Lobster Beach Resort.

Keith Cole’s performance took a couple of hours as he installed a Hotnuts birthday sign across the street from The Beaver. The scaffolding of the Bohemian Embassy never looked so beautiful. The audience inside couldn’t be happier: they got a shower of pink lobster spawn from Mary and me and hot clam chowder from Wilbur Junior. What more can you ask for, really?

We’re back from our short little break and the dolls are reloaded. It was supposed to be Mannequin Hotnuts because of the performance that Lady Darling has planned. Then last weekend, when Mary and I went fabric shopping for our outfits, we discovered a ‘bingo troll’ print. We couldn’t leave it rotting in the sale bin. It’s going to be a true Messhausen dress for da Mary, who will also do a hot bingo troll appearance.

Hallonuts Hotween

This is how Hotnuts should be every month. Almost everyone was dolled up and ready to party.
Thank you for making Halloween the most fun.

Mary Messhausen’s sister, Vic, dressed up as Mary Messhausen and introduced her granny sibling, Beulah. It was quiet a scandal at Hotnuts actually, because Vic used the word “blowjob” on stage. We were in shock. Then it was the debut performance of Beulah Messhausen. And who doesn’t want to see a hot, big granny strip?
Next up were Margot & Margot in a total twincest number that had all the right ingredients.

So many pictures after the jump, gazillions more on flickr.

Parlez-Vous Hotnuts?

Cody Critcheloe was in town for the Toronto premiere of the SSION movie BOY and the afterparty at Hotnuts. So, we kicked off the evening with the screening at Mercer Union. It was the best way to slip into the night – Kansas City style. One of the hightlights of BOY is of course the clip for Clown.

It was kind of no surprise that when we arrived at The Beaver, we (as in I) were already a little effed. When I got reminded that August 29 is Michael Jackson’s birthday, I couldn’t help but play some of his hits early on. Thanks Duncan for requesting Earth Song. Always a crowd pleaser.

Cody had the best Hotnuts stage entry: He fell of the stairs. It was just one of those nights and so much fun. Thanks everybody for coming out.

Below is also a short clip of Cody performing a cover of Grace Jones’ Nightclubbing. Watch out for a cameo by Mary Messhausen.

Get Over It (July) and Get Into It (August)

There’s no Hotnuts in July. We need a short summer break. Sorry. BUT – we’re coming back with a megabang at the end of August. Cody Critcheloe of SSION (prəˈnounst ‘shun’) is going to be in town for the Toronto premiere of his movie BOY. The screening is going to be at Mercer Union on Saturday, August 28.

And afterwards, join us for Hotnuts. Or will it be Boynuts? I dunno. Cody will be performing and shake some iPods. And I heard, KevinHBomb might bring some house music?! YAY!

For a SSION mixtape, head over to DIS magazine.

Clown, one of my favourite songs from the SSION album, got a music video this year. You have probably seen this already, if not, get on it… Kansas City, here we go.

Hotnuts Teargas & Tassles

In the wake of the police going crazy all over town because of the G20 summit, it felt so right that Mikiki took the performance to the street and the back alley behind The Beaver. The crowd followed Mikiki around the block & M gave everyone rotten tomatoes to throw at him. By doing so he told us, we were killing his ego. He set an example for all of us.

It was such a fun night. Thank you for taking over.

Teargas & Tassles

Hotbox Hotnuts

Wow. That was a great 4 year anniversary party. Thanks for a fun filled night. Jamaica set the stage on fire. Her dj companion, DJ No Problem, provided distorted dance hall beats to “Jump Up And Wave”. The energy levels were through the roof! And Jamaica is one bendy queen.

Before and after Jamaica’s performance, DJ Mi-Nuh Care (@JeremyLaing) played the finest reggae and dance hall songs. One of the hits of the night was “Twice My Age“, with the wonderful lyrics: “I’m in love with a man nearly twice my age.” I also loved that Mi-Nuh Care played the annoying but fun “Rich Girl”. When I started djing, the dance floor was already cooking with hot riddims. It was all 4 to the floor from then on. I was so happy to finally play the Riva Starr remix of Royal T. And Circles.

Of course, Mary was up to no good with dem boyz & queens and caught a major shlong. So kai kai.

Peg, the drag baby (some say from hell), was in the kitchen all afternoon and prepared some yummy cookies for us. El Bear Ho couldn’t stop eating them and was kind of baked the minute we arrived at The Beaver. We had to pump one liter of Coke down her throat to bring her back to party.

Hotnuts Volcanic Asses

Saturday night at Hotnuts Volcanic Asses. Fay Slift performed “It’s Oh So Quiet” and “Telephone” and shut air traffic down. There was so much enery on stage that a swan fell around Fay’s neck. So cute.

I wish I had a picture of Mary deep tonguing one of the birthday boys. What a present!
And even Ms. Guðmundsdóttir came by to rim the volcanic asses. Just have a look…

Volcanic Hotnuts Asses

If you follow Hotnuts on facebook, you saw that we had a different theme planned for Saturday. Sadly, dance hall queen Jamaica can’t perform this month. So, we had to change the theme and music”¦ We will bring Jamaica to Hotnuts as soon as possible. This Saturday, you can witness the amazing Fay Slift going down on us like a volcano.

Yes, we’re having Hotnuts Volcanic Asses.
Come and erupt all over us. Cover us in assh.

Thunder only happens when it’s Hotnuts

Crystal Visions took the Hotnuts stage by storm. She performed Dreams, Landslide and Gold Dust Woman for the full Stevie Nicks realness. The Beaver was filled with lace and tambourines. Update: Watch the complete performance

Mary Messhausen created the stunning dresses for huurself and me. I’m not sure if there ever was a Hotnuts when we both wore black?! But you can’t go wrong when you have hot lace fringes and gold polka dots.

Anyways, it was a great night, thank you all for making it happen. xo.

… when it’s Hotnuts.

Yes, we’re having a Stevie Nicks themed nuts. I might play this Deep Dish remix of Dreams all night. And who doesn’t want to be like Stevie in the Scarlett video version of Stand Back. This clip didn’t get released back then, because Ms Nicks thought she looked to fat in it. Climbing up the stairs never looked so good.

TanukiNuts

On Saturday, we had our Tanuki themed Hotnuts. Thanks so much for coming out, it was a blast.

As it was Ben Ben Samuur Iman Yoshi YamaNoFrills’ (yes, that is her full name) birthday, Mary Messhausen called BBSIYY on stage and gave her a tea pot night light as a present. I guess now, she’ll always find the way to the bathroom at night, no more wet sheets! YAY!

The Thigh Master Slaves took the stage shortly after. It was a perfect Hotnuts performance: big balls, blood and dancing. Everybody in the audience wanted a ballsexamination after.

Getting the Blobby Together

The Tanuki is a real but also mythical & magical animal native to Japan. It is widely depicted with balls (aka the blob) hanging to the floor representing luck with money. We felt it’s the perfect Hotnuts mascot & so here we go with TanukiNuts.
Get your blob did and check out some traditional drawing below.

Hotnuts Get Your Apps Together

Thanks for partying with us at Hotnuts Get Your Apps Together. The Beaver was rammed. The House of Monroe shook the dance floor with every drip and drop. Again, they brought such a powerful performance, the audience was screaming.

Mary Messhausen had a new friend: the Mary O’Nette.
Mysteriously, they wore the same outfit.

Hotnuts Illusions of Privacy

Thanks for coming to our holiday Hotnuts Illusions of Privacy party. Mary Messhausen had her face done woochie style. People thought she was straight from the Pandora rain forest.

Lady Kaka had the pants loaded when she took the stage and made us all sing: “Bad Incontinence. Ka-Ka-Puuuhh-La-La.”

Abbas won the grand prize in the first Hotnuts raffle: a herbal cookie, a Bernhard Willhelm t-shirt (he believed it) and a Lady Kaka ep.

Hotnuts Legitimate Look

Thanks to all the GothNuts who came out and made Legitimate Look so much dark fun.

Just in time, Mary and myself had returned from a Neon Rave Camo time traveling trip.

Opera Arcana performed 3 wonderful songs, one of them was The Raven.

Mary was so inspired by it that she created a dance named after it & taught everyone on the dance floor how to dance The Raven. This was the moment.

Check out the photos below, more after the jump & the whole set on flickr.

Hotnuts Legitimate Look

After a two months break we’re very excited about the upcoming Hotnuts Legitimate Look.

You don’t want to miss the debut performance by Opera Arcana – featuring the legendary G.B. Jones (Fifth Column), who hasn’t been on stage for more than 10 years, Minus Smile (Kids on TV) and Julie Faught (The Pining).

When we asked Minus Smile back in spring to perform at Hotnuts, we never thought that would turn into such a super group. Tomorrow, make sure to check this post again for the wonderful, dreamy video of Opera Arcana’s song The Raven.

And one musical premiere is not enough for Hotnuts Legitimate Look. das hussy has been hard at work on a deep house remix of Woods by Bon Iver. Get your dancing heels ready.

The first Hotnuts double-themed party was so much fun. Thanks for coming out.

Lex and Karen brought “Blood Viking Sex Magik” to the Hotnuts stage. It out us into total imperfect angel bliss. Have a look at lots of chili viking outfits below.

In true Mariah style, we used Hello Kitty tongue tattoos to beautify many tacky tongues. (Thank you, Toffi.)

First the bad news: There is going to be no Hotnuts for Halloween in October as Mary, Oliver and proddy are in old, ancient Europe. But here comes the good news: Because of that we thought we need two themes this month. The first Hotnuts double bill, this Saturday, September 26:

Adult-BabyNuts

Thanks so much for making Adult-BabyNuts fun. It was our youngest crowd yet. The baby that Mary and myself brought on stage did not survive long, toddler Lex humped it flat in no time.

Miss Fluffy Souffle performance had lots of pills and juices going. Such a babe.

As El Bear Ho’s birthday was just a couple of days ago, we had a cute carebear cake done by baby Frostitution.

Omg, last night was out of control.

At the beginning of the night Mary and I were a bit worn out from the Drag Holes (more on that later), but when the performance by The House of Monroe started, our ship wrecks were set on fire.

Twista, Snoopy and Vixen, members of The House of Monroe shut it down. The energy levels were so high, you thought the roof would blow off any second. So much screaming and cheering.
After we thought it couldn’t get any better, there were more and more super hot dips and moves. And finally, Mary Messhausen and Isabella Hosellini joined in on the action.

Check the pictures below. Lots of pictures after the jump, even more on flickr.
We missed to capture so many great outfits, sorry to all of you who we did not flash.

Memorable Michael Jackson moments on the dancefloor: Stranger In Moscow, Can You Feel It and as the last song: Remember The Time (Silky Soul 12” Mix).

And we all have some homework to do: Brushing up on the Vogue-cabulary.

Hotnuts Dipping Sauce

Thanks to all of you for coming out to our Hotnuts dipping sauce special edition. Mary Messhausen hosted the contest: plum, creamy garlic and honey mustard never tasted so good on fresh fruits.

Olive Oyl gave a theatre ready performance of “He’s Large” from the movie Popeye. Bluto made an appearance in the form of a six-foot tall dancing penis. Head over to omgblog to watch the video.

The packed dance floor was provided with heavy house beats from Bitz, who was in town from Frankfurt, and myself.

Hotnuts Ham Hocks

Last night, the M 27s (hailing from Alberta) took the stage at the rammed Beaver and performed a rousing rendition of Beyonce’s Single Ladies. We all freaked out.

Mary was lactating the whole night, although she is only one month pregnant but showing for nine. She was so exhausted after the party, that she’s now vacationing on MILF Island.
I was going for a “burka ewok slut at the circus” look. There were a couple of tranny chasers from Alberta in the house who offered some serious oil money for a little private time. It was a pleasure djing with Jaime. We as in I blew the speakers twice. Doh.

For all your HD needs, the high-res pictures are on flickr with a couple of extra ones.

We got some Trompe-l’œil action last night. The lady strippers got the audience all heated up & provided some lezzie action for birthday girl Andrea. Then Mikiki took the stage with a self piercing performance number. I think she’s a vampire, she did not bleed a single drop.

Holiday Hotnuts

Oh oh. The Holiday Low Ballin’ Special Hotnuts party looks like a very festive night. Jaime and das hussy were at the turntables and had the hottest beats. From what I heard, Mary was the best hostess, as always.

Oliver and I wish we were there. But instead, we were stuck in Chicago. Oprah had invited us for a late night pizza snack at her house.
