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?

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.

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…

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tequila Birthday Madness

Sunday, last party night in Berlin at Berghain Kantine. ND’s birthday with a very special tequila bar by Conny and Zu from Amsterdam. After having been to crazy parties for 3 nights before, Sunday was almost impossible… But the tequila brought back our energy.

Monday morning was also the end of Girlscamp Berlin. Mary Messhausen, Toffi, Prancey Girl and myself had rented an apartment together. More on that later. For now, enjoy the pictures below, more after the jump. Even more on flickr.

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.

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.

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.

Easing into Family Day

We celebrated Family Day with a party in the gay village at Straight. Mary wore her amazing stuffed toy scarf and of course I was happy to wear a Mary dress. Margot did my make up and we were ready to go.

Between my dj sets Mary and I got acquainted with a couple of cute boys. However, we couldn’t decide on whom to start a family with, so we ended the night like we always do: eating. Yummy.

Kiss-Off Party

Trannyshack, the long-running weekly drag-show in San Francisco, founded by Heklina is closing the doors. They have a Kiss Off Party on August 23rd featuring their greatest performers and special guests including Lady Bunny and Lady Miss Kier.

The first time I went must have been in ’96 or ’98. And then almost every Tuesday for a couple of months in 2004.

I couldn’t find my most memorable performances online, featuring a drag zombie dancing to Beyonce or blood pouring down a bucket onto the drag queen in a stars and strips bathing suit lip-syncing Irene Cara’s Flashdance, What A Feeling… Anyway, check out Heklina’s and Glamamore’s version of All Is Full of Love:

I guess I can say we had a wonderful night at Parage. Everyone was worried it was going to be empty because of the new Rauchverbot in Cologne. But au contraire, there was dancing at Sixpack.

I wish there were cute pictures of Malo, Bernd, Viola, Michi, Oliver, Herr Krebber, Michael & Peter but all I can give you is me on crutches. What can I tell you? I only wanted to have some fun & now someone said I might have a dancing-sporn. This is just screwed up (verkorkst).

HothNuts

Mary Messhausen hosted Saturday night’s Hothnuts. At first she had the pleasure to welcome Michelle DuBarry for a surprise performance. Such a treat! As it was Prancey Boy’s birthday, Frostitution had prepared an amazing beehive cake. So yummy. After that, Gartina took the stage and turned it into a catwalk with lyrics like: “Sexually assault me – salt me on the runway now!”. Viola brought hot records from Cologne and Detroit. The dancing went on long after last call.

Thank you for coming to Hothnuts and making our last party before the summer break so much fun. We’re back August 23rd.

Hotnuts²

Last night was basically the official album release party for Mariah’s E=MC². Gartina took the stage and performed Fantasy and Make it Happen in a strobe light thunderstorm. Watch the Make It Happen climax. She was flawless as always. Jeremy was playing some hot dancehall. Mary’s hour glass figure transfixed the boys. My dress from the Mary Messhausen Mussy collection.

By the end of the night I was Mariah crazy and I screamed. “I’m going to play all 18 number one hits.” And that set the dancefloor on fire.

Dear readers, when Mary and I went to Chinatown last weekend to cop the Bernhard Willhelm knock off sunglasses, we were so happy when we found them in yellow and white. And they matched our outfits.

Anyhow, last night Bubby Frieda took the stage and gave us two songs about self pity. The audience ate it up and screamed for more. As her encore Bubby sang “Woman in Love” by Barbara Streisand and everyone joined in on the chorus.

I wish I remembered all lyrics to Gartina’s songs. Yesterday, during “Vogue For Me” she sang about how she wants to travel to Africa to adopt black African babies. At the end of the song she chanted: Madonna, we forgive you for stealing Vogue.

Hallonuts

Saturday night started with a major fashion disaster. All the cab companies told us it would take half an hour to pick us up, so Mary, Prancey Boy, Golden Bag and me decided to walk to The Beaver. Mary had her Sunshower costume on, with a gold helium balloon attached to her cloud to represent the sun. It didn’t last long – an angry gust of wind took it away. Lesson learned: Don’t mess with the weather!

The rest of the night was fabulous thanks to all the wonderful dressed up craziness. Thank you all for partying.

Hallonuts Hotween

The city is gearing up for Halloween. Each day another front porch is converted into a new pumpkin land. I can’t wait for Saturday when Christabel is taking the stage. He is cooking up some weird sauces in his closet.
Also, my dear friend Mary is hosting and the lovely Prancey Boy is back as the door girl. Straight from Scandinavia, Colin Bergh is sharing the turntables with me.

The Nuts Just Keep On Coming

That was such a fun night. Thanks to all who came to party.

Keith Cole did his amazing twirls to Burning Up. And then, we got a surprise visit by Britney performing her hit single Gimme More. Pictures of her floor rolling, Red Bull and Cheetos soaked gig after the jump. Or check out the video.

Bring Your Ass to Cologne

My friend Viola Klein is throwing a party in Cologne next Saturday, July 28. If there is one party you don’t want to miss in Cologne this year, this is the one.
Viola invited WhoDat from Detroit, Peter Abs and Tim Elzer to spin records.

I would love to be there, it sounds like wonderful night.
You might have heard about the party that started the Bring Your Ass theme.
Now, get ready because Saturday the 28th is Almost There.

Emo Moments

Thank you all for coming out last night, it was so much fun.

I think Gartina’s performance was the best of hers yet. After her android inspired lyrics last December, we were wondering what’s next on her list. She sang: “Fuck me with your broken computer.” We screamed for more.
Karl Lagerfeld’s Ponytail did a wonderful gig of their hits La Lohan and Ponytail.

House Party

Finally, I am back in Toronto’s Portuguese neighborhood, which also happens to be Nelly Furtado’s home turf. The first couple of days went by in a whirlwind of parties. The highlight being the house party at Maison Messhausen with the lovely hosts Margot, Mary and Kyle.

In between the Jäger shots (I only had two, honestly) I spun a couple of records and of course I had to play Nelly F’s überhit, Say It Right. I am absolutely into this song. In case you have lived under a stone for a couple of weeks, take a listen here. If I’m talking about Nelly I can’t stop. For me, the best song on her album is Wait For You. It might be made for riding in your SUV, all the hand-claps and then when you think it’s over, the sub-bass is kicking in at 4 minutes into the song.

This is the first time we’re djing together. Very exciting.

Get your crazy person outfit ready & partake in the shindigs. Please.

Hotnuts!
It’s also a little bit my Frankfurt going-away-for-now party.

hauptstadtfeeling

At one of this years S parties in Frankfurt some first timers stepped into the tiny place and said: “Mmmh, das ist ja richtiges Hauptstadtfeeling.”
(they meant: Hauptstadt as in capital as in Berlin)
We are mocking the term ever since.

During my time in old Europe I feel the need to take it all in.
So, this weekend I made my trip to Berlin to get my Hauptstadtfeeling fix. I was very happy when ND took me to Berghain/Panoramabar Saturday night or better, early Sunday morning. We arrived at 3.30 am just in time for the gig of Toronto’s Ontario’s own Junior Boys. Loved their show.
After that, Jesse Rose (cute) did a dj set. I especially liked the first part during which he played Mr. White – The Sun Can’t Compare and mixed it into Romanthony – Let Me Show You Love (Quick Dub/Crooklyn Mix).
Although I had taken a short disco nap from 11 to 2, I left the club übertired at 8.30 am.
Hauptstadtfeeling pur.

Party Rundgang Städelschule
Daimlerstr. 32 – Frankfurt
(that’s very far east, don’t get lost)

DJs Birgit and produzentin

This is the very first time Birgit and I are djing together. I’m very excited. Of course, we’re going to play some Strictly Rhythm. Also, Birgit will be back in Toronto later this year and she has agreed to play Hotnuts with me. This is going to be full of pizazz.

Between my sets at Städel, I want to make out with at least one professor.
No art students for me. Sorry.

Birgit and I send uplifting wishes to our DJ sister Viola.
Get well soon, darling.

Was ist die Städelschule?
I messed around with the Städelschule website

Don’t Tell Mama

I’m back in Frankfurt for a few weeks. On my first jet-lagged night, I went to Don’t Tell Mama, Alex Sinclair’s new party at Im Bett, just around the corner from S.

It was so good to hear Miss Viola dj. After Mama, at 5 am, we went to have an early morning drink at S. All in all, it was a wonderful night with Sabs, Bits, Nancy, Superschum (I think he needs to update his blog), Alex and Isa.

I’m happy to be back.

Kiki!
Loved Kiki’s performance at Don’t Tell Mom.
She’s a slut. Missed her.

Fatnuts

Just got home from silk screening the posters, below is the scanned version.

This is your last chance to have some Hotnuts this year.
Come and get some, Saturday at the Beaver.

Andrew hosts the night and I am very much looking forward to djing with jaime sin. And my favourite drag performer from last months’ TAAFI Hotnuts is back: Gartina!
This is going to be wonderful.

November Hotnuts

Yesterday’s Hotnuts was part of the Taafi drag strip. There were amazing performances by Vaginal Creme Davis (which I sadly missed, because I didn’t make it to the Gladstone), Gartina (my favourite), Donnarama and Keith Cole. There are tons of pictures this time. It was gayaos.

Come to the Sugarshack

I am very excited about our upcoming event.
It’s Sugarshack time at The Power Plant.
So, mark your calendars and get ready for maple sweetness. Please.

Anthony designed another dress for me and he is sewing away night and day at our little sweat shop. I can’t wait to wear the dress at Sugarshack. Anthony is doing such wonderful things…

Anyway, here are the details:

Sugarshack by Oliver Husain
Performance by Bojana

In New England, Quebec and extreme eastern Ontario, the processing of maple syrup has become part of the culture, and city folk often go to the sugarshacks (cabane à sucre) in late autumn, where rustic drinks are served with maple syrup-based products, house and disco music. For this occasion, lifesize models of these sugarshacks are set up. Thick maple syrup flavoured liquor is served with live serbian singing, drag queens and special effects.
Owing to the sugar maple tree’s predominance in south-eastern Canada, its leaf has come to symbolize the country, and is depicted on its flag.
