Merry Fetishmas

For those who crave something darker for Yuletide, how about a naughty fetish party honoring Christmas? A Hollywood bar tucked away in Hollywood Circle will host this month's enchanting soiree, and our fetish overlord, Electrolust, will glorify the Christmas-theme. It's going to be a Cyanide Xmas fetish party, "Seasons Beatings" -- happy holidays. By darker, New Times means the music: gothic, industrial, electro, and hardcore tunes; there will be a second stage and it will be fiercer with drum & bass and dubstep. We mean the darkly lit rooms where bodies will dance, perform burlesque, and use "open-play" equipment. Saturday's fetish party features Cyanide Regime, rigging by Guerrilla Shibari (performance art using erotic rope bondage), floggers and toys by the very pleasant Leather Lee, a Cabaret Vampyra's Danger Kitties fetish show, and DJs Antichrist, Alex Dalliance, Synn, and Strelok. Dress the part: What great party doesn't include a costume contest for best outfit? A few advantages for those who come early: The admission is cut in half before 11 p.m. (you pay $20 after), and you score two-for-one drinks before midnight. Visit electrolust.net.
