Summer doesn’t have to be over. Join us in the desert for five days of amazing bands, DJs and performers at HANDS ON, our queer music & arts festival at Ace Hotel & Swim Club during Palm Springs Pride, November 2-7, brought to you by Heineken. Rooms are 15% off and we’ve got a handful of Feel Good Spa specials ranging from the mystical to the practical, using everything from crystals to sugar. It’s going to be about 85, so you can have a second summer vacation in November.
BUTT Magazine hosts a pop-up shop and Jeremy Kost previews new photographs in the Clubhouse and signs his book It’s Always Darkest Before Dawn, hosted by Mr. Black LA. Light Asylum swoops in from New York with their soul-spinning, operatic drama, in collaboration with CockFight, an underground warehouse party hailing from Los Angeles and Beyondadoubt, just back from a European tour with Beth Ditto. Stay Gold brings their dance-cum-art party from San Francisco to duels on the decks with DJs from LA’s Mustache Mondays. Mr. Black plays another poolside afternoon party, and Blok and Myles Cooper play live sets in the Amigo Room. We’re also screening two films — The Strange History of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell and Paris is Burning — at the Commune pool, on Thursday and Friday night, respectively.
See you there, with bells on. Stay tuned here for interviews, videos and more, and see the full schedule on our calendar.
