First Ever Saturday Night Party
For the first time, Juanita will take on Saturday night of Gay Pride to raise even more money for the community. The Saturday night event will take place at the former Carousel Ballroom which hosted big bands in the 30’s and 40’s and when that era faded a new style of music was ushered in featuring Ike & Tina Turner, B.B. King, Chuck Berry and many, many more. Bill Graham took over the concert hall in 1968, opening its doors as its most famous incarnation the Fillmore West to the likes of the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Santana and countless others and also where Aretha Franklin recorded her legendary live album in 1971. The venue is a very special place where decades of dancers, musicians, and performers spent many nights having a good time.
Saturday night’s party will usher in the debut of this newly refurbished venue. The all queer musical lineup includes Gavin Rayna Russom (LCD Soundsystem), Kim Ann Foxman (Fire House), Jasmine Infiniti (New World Dysorder) and MORE!
This magnificent space includes both indoor and outdoor attractions, with a roof deck as large as the venue itself.
