Brightest Young Things is teaming up with Capital Pride to present a specatacular night out at the Newseum next Friday, June 10. “BYT & Capital Pride present: Somewhere…” will be an over-the-top, over-the-rainbow event. Think you had fun at the last two Newseum events? They will be nothing compared to this one.
In order to preview the party, we stopped by the Black Cat for an impromptu photo-shoot and brought along just about every over-the-top prop we could find. But, before we get to the photos – let’s get to the details.
A limited number of pre-sale tickets are on sale now for $15, but the price goes up next week.
You get: The biggest party in town next weekend (an offical Capital Pride event), a six-story atrium surrounding the dance floor, cocktail bars in every neon-lit glass elevator, a no-shirts moon bounce in the shape of a Twister board, a make-out movie theater, glow sticks – glow necklaces – glow everything , live performance by Sherell Rowe, DJ sets by international stars Ultra Naté with Lisa Moody & Lauren Flax (and Washington DJs Natty Boom & DJ MAJR), afterhours access to Newseum exhibits, ponies, lasers, rainbows, and Levar Burton impersonators telling you stories from Reading Rainbow. And we just announced a VIP room done by Timur Tugberk!
We told you it was over the top. And we’re excited to see our straight friends too – everyone is gay on Pride!
And now, the photos (by our amazing and excellent Bradley):
