Queer Atlanta hits Hot Mess dance party in East Atlanta

Add this share

LGBTQ Atlanta and its allies descended on the Basement in East Atlanta Village to check out the latest pop dance party from DJ Kimber. 

Kimber and Nonsense ATL presented Hot Mess, which takes over the Basement on the third Friday of every month. Think Janelle Monae, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, Kesha, Robyn, Ariana Grande, Charli XCX and more.

And while the rumors are true about Graveyard Tavern closing down, fear not for the Basement. The dance club downstairs from the tavern will continue on, according to What Now Atlanta.
