All year long, your tiny, gold-lamé booty shorts have been at the bottom of your underwear drawer, collecting dust and weeping at the memory of last years Pride, when they got to rub up against a ripped Argentineans crotch on a sweaty dancefloor. Perk up, booty shorts, because guess what? San Diego Pride is back, bringing all the loud, thumping, ass-grinding club nights that comes with it.
As usual, one of the hottest places to get your shirtless party on is Richs (1051 University Ave.) in the citys gay-and-lesbian mecca, Hillcrest. This weekend, the gay nightclub will be blowing up. On Friday, July 20, theyll have a neon-themed party (so, wear your Day-Glo tube socks) with DJs spinning Lady Gaga remixes and a special performance by Neon Hitch. Shell baby-voice her way through her dance hit Fuck U Betta. Well, at least she has sexual prowess going for her, since she cant spell. The Saturday, July 21, party goes until 4 a.m., and Wynter Gordon will be there to perform her electro-pop party starter Dirty Talk. Im sensing a pattern, and that pattern is horny. Bring your body glitter, and get ready to sweat.
But Pride isnt all about the fellas. The ladies want some action, too. Bourbon Street (4612 Park Blvd. in University Heights) will host Juicy Pride Glow Party, a special ladies night happening on Sunday, July 22. Babe-alicious go-go dancers will bend and bounce while DJ Pinke kicks out the jams. There wont be any Melissa Etheridge playing—unless theres an awesome electro remix of Come to My Window out there that I havent heard yet.
As an alternative to the alternative, Thursday, July 19, brings Makeout Weird to South Parks Whistle Stop Bar (2236 Fern St.). The night features The Bitwise Operators, a band made up of UCSD doctoral candidates who have been called The Beatles of computer music by—well, someone. They write their own software and build hardware just to melt your face on the dance floor. DJs Ese & Zain will also bring some tunage with them while The Periscope Project shows photographs of a drone they purchased on craigslist. The night will be weird indeed.
