The Supperclub in Los Angeles is preparing for an invasion of misfits and freaks. Inspired by The Limelight Nightclub in New York City made famous by Michael Alig and the Club Kids and featured in the 2003 movie Party Monster, Limelight Thursdaze is poised to bring the freaks, the beats, and the beautiful people deep into the heart of Hollywood. Revitalization and gentrification of the area into a vanilla tourist trap means less progressive outlets on the strip. Supperclub wants to change all that.

"Limelight was a place of self-expression, where the celebrated became anonymous and the anonymous were celebrated," proclaimed Limelight Thursdaze creator, Jimi Dava. "It was the rejection of the mainstream ideals, the embrace of counterculture revolution."

Limelight Thursdaze will be a monthly series on the fourth Thursday of each month. Dinner will be served beforehand, and participants will feast on an amazing lineup of food and treats, as they lounge on white beds that surround the dance floor. Aerial and stage acts will entertain and arouse interaction. "I wanted to create a scene, a vibe, and a space where people are challenged and inspired," said Dava.
