Heretic resets standard on gay dance blowouts

Add this share

With more than two decades of man-on-man dance parties, Heretic lately raised its own bar on special events. With GA Boy Productions, Saturday’s “bar just got so high you can barely see it.”

That’s the quote from the bar’s GM Alan Collins when he announced that legendary mix master DJ Abel was to hit Atlanta and hit the decks for his Heretic debut. Collins predicted that Abel would pack the place with night crawlers, and he was right. The party pumped full tilt all the way to close.

“Thank you Atlanta, Alan Collins, [GA Boy's] Keith , [Carioca's] Fernando, and all the Heretic wonderful staff,” Abel said when he caught his breath around 4:30 a.m. “Great to see so many great friends, was such an Amazing fun time! Was very special tonight.”
