Gay worlds collided at the Atlanta Eagle on Friday. Appropriately for the mashup mixes of DJ Robin Skouteris, dance fans partied it up with revelers in town for Southeast Black & Blue kink weekend.
For the second year, Black & Blue combined four kinks in one for a full weekend of fun. But before Saturday’s Southeast title contests (view photos), the weekend’s leather, rubber, bootblack and jock strap crowd kicked off with an Eagle meet and greet on Friday.
It just so happens that the event coincided with the latest in the increasingly popular Mash Attacks! parties with Skouteris and the Eagle’s own DJ Pat Scott, whose mashups mix two or more songs together for a whole new sound. So their set proved a fitting soundtrack to the night that blended all things kinky sex and all things thumping beats.
