Heretic raises roof on Labor Day Eve [photos]

DJ Alexander pumped his L.A. beats into the ATL as Heretic blew open its doors for special open-Sunday holiday weekend hours. With Monday off, it turned out to be an offer few could refuse.

Call it an extra Saturday night. Labor Day Weekend provided the perfect excuse for Atlanta gays to groove on Sunday, too. Men packed the bar for the bonus night and – Heretic being Heretic – it wasn’t long before shirts came off so that the sexy patrons matched Alexander’s frisky beats.

The thumping dance music continues at Heretic on Saturday, Sept. 8, when DJ Roland Belmares returns to Atlanta after a triumphant Joining Hearts set. He tends to make the hunks get shirtless, too.
