After a Friday night and Saturday afternoon to remember, the weekend-long Peach Party gay dance circuit series moved its grooves to Jungle Saturday night as DJ Paulo played to the versatility of the crowd.
Before the set, Paulo admitted to us that he’s versatile behind the turntables, just like gay Atlanta says it’s versatile in the bedroom. It was a perfect match. Add a special performance by Jungle’s drag resident Phoenix and a packed dance floor, and Atlanta had a recipe for excess.
But a marathon four international DJs beating down three events weren’t enough to call it quits for the weekend. Just as Paulo wound down, Peach Party danced its way over to Xion for an afterparty with DJ Abel that lasted until Sunday sunlight.
