Paper favorite Ladyfag is bringing back her excellent, intimidatingly comprehensive Pop Souk Bazaar, which aims to bring a bit of nightlife culture and fashion to a daytime pop-up market.
The fifth installment is set to take over all of cavernous Webster Hall this weekend (former Pop Souk's have been held outside the Standard Hotel and in smaller spaces -- so this is a major upping of square footage). But we're not surprised about the amount of space, seeing as how Ladyfag, the brains behind popular parties Shade and Holy Mountain, is one of New York nightlife's saving graces. Plus, there will be a free Kiehl's barber shop, piercing booth and tattoo parlor (staffed by a hot model giving free "Ladyfag stamp" tattoos, which will get you into all her events for life), not to mention booths selling goods from nearly 100 talented local artists. Soundtracked by the likes of Doom Dab duo AHBS and "Legendary" DJ Joey LaBeija, you'll be able to peep new stuff courtesy of future-S&M designer BCALLA, tongue-in-cheek sportwear purveyors Whatever21 and the inventive material-warpers at BOND Hardware, all while sipping a cocktail. See the full list of vendors here.
We also hear there's going to be a special Ladyfag booth selling discounted, earlybird tickets for her upcoming Shade event, Shadey-O's ("Toasted Rave Surreal"!), so make sure you do an early sweep. See you on Sunday!
