Ring In 2017 With Autre At The Ace Hotel And Swim Club In Palm Springs For A Two Day Multidimensional Desert Ceremony

New Years Eve – presented in association with Spaceland, Mel Shimkovitz and Autre Magazine, Pie Town's Supertemporal Southwestern Sock Hop is a two-day, multidimensional desert ceremony — a catharsis of time and space and sound guided by some of our favorite modern gnostics (Devendra Banhart, YACHT, Owen Pallett, etc). Potential plot points: poodle skirts giving way to poodles wearing skirts, greasers-cum-cult leaders, doo-wop becomes electro-pop. What does any of this mean? Join us and you'll see. Welcome to the future/past/forever. A portion of the proceeds from the party will help put the finishing touches on ProjectQ's HAIRSTREAM trailer-- a mobile salon dedicated to helping LA's homeless queer youth combat bullying, develop self-esteem and find an identity for themselves. Friday December 30 and Saturday December 31 at the Ace Hotel and Swim Club in Palm Springs. Click here to purchase tickets.
