The legendary Jackie 60 theme party “The Brown Party” returned for its annual edition on Sunday, Oct. 14 at the brand new East Village venue Club Cumming.

The Brown Party began in 1991 as a spoof on the gay theme parties of generations past, and grew into a New York nightlife tradition and piece of club art.

Brown Party DJs Witch Camp (Amber Martin and Nath Ann Carrera) spun ’60s and ’70s rock, folk, esoterica and more, with Jackie 60 theme queen Althea Loveless opening. Performance highlights included Chanteuse Joey Arias, the Brown Chorus Line starring Poison Eve, Darlinda, Just Darlinda and Eric Schmalenberger and Send in the Brown. Jackie MCs Paul Alexander, Hattie Hathaway and Chi Chi Valenti hosted.

The event returned in 2015 as part of Mother Fifteen celebrating fifteen years since the eccentric, artistic Meatpacking venue Mother closed its doors. Reborn for a new time, with a fresh and familiar crowd, the Brown Party now returns annually, most recently at the Black Rose prior to coming to Alan Cumming and Daniel Nardicio’s new East Village haunt Club Cumming.
