About Last Night, London Edition: Jodie Harsh's Circus Party Featuring Pete Burns

Zandile Blay

The Soho Revue Club, Soho's first topless bar, is certainly a fitting venue for Circus, the weekly party held by London gal-about-town Jodie Harsh. The magic happens on a dance floor surrounded by burgundy velvet couches, heavy matching draperies and mirrored walls. Topless pole dancers showed their skills, while resident DJs Knights of Sound spun a sick mix of hip-hop, dance and techno music. The party this past Friday was more decadent than usual as the legendary Pete Burns, London's gender-bending "music personality" was on hand as guest DJ. Of course, he played his trademark 1985 chart topper, "You Spin Me Right Round." As soon as he entered the DJ booth the audience which had been happily dancing and drinking promptly stopped and -- you guessed it -- spun right round to stare and take photos of Burns. You couldn't blame them, but from my point of view, the partiers, an eclectic mix of south London boys, dainty socialites, drag divas, and nu rave kids, were just as interesting to watch as the guest of honor. See some of them below.
