SAT // FEB. 16 // EL RIO // 9PM to 2AM // $10 b/f 10 & $15 after
for the uninitiated: creature is a collaborative project, a night for all queer bodies (and legit allies) to come together, get close and sweat. we feature an eclectic mix of performers, music (synth pop/ future club/ house/ techno/ punk/ && beyond), installations and projections -- all to keep your mind constantly spinning.
**DOOR NOTE** for our quarterly, we’re increasing the cover slightly to accommodate the sheer amount of talent we’re bringing in to make this night special. we take care to compensate queer artists fairly. BUT we also want our queer fam there above all, so we’ll be passing around a password for folks to use that’ll keep costs at $10 throughout the night. get in touch with a promoter or performer to get the details (or send us a message through fbook/ insta).
brought to you w/ love by the creature crew (YSC, Skin, iamMom, Jerry Lee and Gossip Cat)
*~*~*~* each part, we donate a percentage of the door to an organization that reflects our queer values. this month’s recipient is TBA. *~*~*~*
PLZ NOTE AND COME RIGHT:
creature is a celebration of all queer bodies. it is a safer space for self expression and coming together. that means we will not put up with any sort of anti-blackness, racism, ableism, fatphobia, transphobia, misogyny, femmephobia, xenophobia, islamophobia, ageism, etc. etc. we are not about to let bigots ruin our good time or yours.
El Rio’s entrance and most of the club are wheelchair accessible, including the back deck but not the yard. Their bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible and do not have grab bars (and would not be accessible without assistance). Their back patio is now smoke free, but the bar is not a fragrance free space. There is no parking lot.
Please, if this doesn't provide enough information for you or we've missed something, let us know. We'll get back to you ASAP and post any new info here.
