SWAN SONG - A Ravishing Farewell Rollick
San Francisco’s most subversive bastion of carnality, The Armory, prepares for one last soaring soirée before it’s ‘lights out’ on this legendary portal within the city’s historic structure. Say goodbye to this fabled venue with a wild one-night stand of ferocious fashion, sorcerous swing, and premium saturnalia.
Hosted by the West Coast’s infamous full-tilt freakeasy, Trapeze Worldwide, Swan Song cordially invites you to a bass-fueled night of jazz-age abandon featuring a cadre of vamps, vipers, flappers, and floozies all hell-bent on seeing an era off in salacious style.
Blowin’ off the doors to the upper floor with resident Trapeze DJs, co-producers and DirtyVolt artists Delachaux and The Klown, plus the combustible dustible voodoo of the Vaude Villainz and Limbs Akimbo!
AND catch the daring demoiselles of the international burlesquerotti cabaret, starring LouLou D’Vil, Frankie Fictitious, Tana the Tattooed Lady, Miss Kitty Oaks, Mojo DeVille, Jet Noir, Dasha Cayenne, Vixi Vale, Charlie Duneaux, and gilded tilt-a-whirl of special guests, with your host 'The Mayor of Lightning in a Bottle' Thee One, Thee Only Paul E. Amori.
Swan Song will be your absolute last chance to revel in the Armory’s current incarnation before an era comes to an end. So dawn your dapperest duds, and prepare for lift off!
TRAPEZE is an intoxicating ritual of kidnapping exotic sounds from the haunted islands of vintage musique and blasting them from big bass canons into the circus skies of the forbidden future.
‘Trapeze feels like Betty Boop threw an acid party.’
‘From LA to Vancouver, the wandering burlesque dance party known as Trapeze has been scorching stages and seducing dance floors with an immersive kaleidoscope of haunting melodies and seismic beats. Driven by San Francisco DJ/Producer duo Delachaux and The Klown, Trapeze has been christened as the official lightning rod of the west coast underground's burgeoning electro-swing cult and features a parade of DJs, bands and performers with a cheeky, bass heavy taste for vintage, old world wonder that's been spliced, diced and hotwired on tomorrow's sonic dope. Recently heralded by the SF Examiner, LA Weekly and Insomniac Magazine as one of underground dance music's most innovative directions, Trapeze continues to ambush swelling audiences with some of the most uniquely refreshing sights and sounds in contemporary EDM.'
