Guys leather up to beat Heretic’s new ManShaft

Add this share

Maybe it’s the camaraderie, archetypal masculine themes, and popular nice-guy DJs, but the ManShaft is more than the sum of its parts. The party formula really makes magic now that it’s at Heretic.

Since the club already hosts the hottest weekly man-on-man dance parties, the ManShaft event series’ new homebase was destined to be a hit. The proof was in the leather-clad pudding on Saturday, when throngs of men strapped themselves in for the party’s Leather-Levi Edition. DJ Neon the Glowgobear beat down an opening set before ManShaft mastermind DJ Diablo Rojo hit the decks.

Forget the weather forecast; this party was hot as usual. Lumbersexuals and all.
