One Party to Rule Them All: Opening Ceremony Turns Ten with Lil' Kim & Friends!

BY Gillian Tozer | Tue. September 11, 2012 | 12:00 AM | OC
Words will not do it justice. Last night's party, celebrating our ten-year anniversary, took things to the next level, bringing together New York's most iconic parties from the past decade; that’s Club Luxx, MisshapesGHE20 GOTH1KSMITHS SWAY NIGHT + The HoleClubber Down Disco, and 1992 in the same damn place, at the same damn time! 

Paul Sevigny and Leo Fitzpatrick kicked off the night with some Morrissey and Smiths selections—a nod to Sway (still the best Sunday night party in New York) and legendary dance party, The Hole. Down in the studio, Venus X and $hayne's party, Ghe20 Goth1k, went hard, while up in the ballroom the Misshapes party of 2003 came back to life, led by Leigh LezarkGeordon NicolGreg Krelenstein, and Sophia Lamar. Up in the balcony lounge, Ladyfag and co. gave us all disco fever! At the stroke of midnight, house music legend Larry Tee began his Club Luxx set as balloons and confetti fell from the rafters, followed by live performances from Le1fPrincess Superstar, and MDPCOscar Sanchez and Va$htie's 1992 party followed, featuring BRENMAR on the decks and DEEMEHLOW as MC, playing amazing hip-hop track you love and have PROBABLY FORGOTTEN.

But all these legends were the pre-game: Just after 2am, the Queen Bee, Lil’ Kim, busted onto the stage with "How Many Licks" and "Crush on You," to name just two, even throwing some curve balls with "We Found Love" by RiRi and "Pop That" by French Montana. 
As expected, Webster Hall was teeming with OCers and our many fantastic friends, who munched on Magnolia cupcakes, Momofuku cookies, and Hibachi Heaven food truck treats, and drank a seemingly endless supply of Svedka vodka. Team Tenga was also on hand, giving out TENGA X KEITH HARING eggs. Amazing music, wild performances, crazy decorations, (free) drinks, great friends making new memories—now that is how you throw a birthday party!
