VINTAGE A-GO-GO FASHION SHOW! World of Style and Balance Salon have outdone ourselves yet again...the go-go models wowed the audience and the party went on into the night!

FRENCH BEATNIKS ON "QUIET CITY!" The Penthouse transformed into the “Cave des Trois Puces,” a Parisian beatnik bar circa 1960 on the next "Quiet City: Radio in Hi-Fi!"

The Mod, Mod, Mod, Mod World of Dawn Carrington!

THE LONESOME PRAIRIE DOGS' live performance packed the house with art and music lovers and a good old time was had by all.

The models paraded in the front-window runway and the citizens of Downtown Jersey City watched in awe from the sidewalk. Fabulous!
In partnership with our fave-rave hair salon, Balance, and Jersey City Lesbian and Gay Outreach (JCLGO) we sent a five-girl Vintage Swimsuit Squad over to the Jersey City Pride Festival on the Hudson River waterfront to lend the event some extra fabulousness, because nobody can have too much fabulousness!
78 RPM Dance Party Deejays/music historians Matt Barton (Library of Congress) and Juke Joint Jonny (Susquehanna Industrial Tool & Die Co.) had the place jumpin', jivin' and Lindy-hopping. The boys literally blew up the speakers with their rockin' and rollin' red-hot old shellac!
