Oxford Street’s gay hotspot Nevermind has shut its doors, with its new owner planning a hetero rebrand – but the Disgraceland crew will have one last hurrah this weekend.
“This Saturday night we’re going to be re-opening the hallowed doors of the little club that could for one final night of partying just like it used to be,” says Disgraceland’s crew.
All the stars of the club’s heyday have aligned – expect to see Courtney Act, who’s travelled all the way from her new Hollywood home, dancer Daniel Garofali visiting from New York, plus Nevermind’s former party promoter Tim Duggan (all the way from Darlinghurst) for this momentous occasion.
“Three and a half years ago we found a little nightclub on Oxford Street that we converted into the most happening party in Australia,” says Duggan proudly.
“This Saturday night we’re reassembling the original team to sprinkle a little bit of that magic over Nevermind for one last time. If you’ve ever partied with us, come along to make one last memory.”
It’ll be the last time the venue will be open as ‘Nevermind’. Its new owner has signaled a complete revamp of the club, catering to a mainstream but gay-friendly crowd.
Through the years, Nevermind’s celeb guests included Lady Gaga, The Spice Girls, Pusscycat Dolls, Amanda Lepore, Adam Lambert, pornstar Brent Corrigan and video crazy turned wannabe pornstar Chris Crocker.
The club’s former resident drag diva Courtney Act will also present her live show at the nearby Slide nightclub this Friday – find details here.
DISGRACELAND: ONE NIGHT ONLY is on the Saturday November 10 from 10pm until late at Nevermind, level 1 at 163 Oxford Street, for $15.
