It’s time to dust off your dancing shoes for the launch of a new monthly social night hosted by Naughty Noodle Fun Haus on April 29.
The Noodle have partnered with popular bar, Lyons Den, to help host a free night of live DJs, music and drag at their Gosford venue, from 6pm to 10pm.
Starting next week, the ‘ThursGAY’ event will feature on the last Thursday of every month and will involve a revolving line up of live music acts and performances from Drag Queens and Kings.
Creative Director of the Naughty Noodle, Glitta Supernova, said the event will help support local LGBTQIA+ communities and local talent.
“When we first met [brother and sister duo], Jared and Claire Lyons from the Den, back in the pre-COVID period of their business, we talked about ways we could work together on the existing cultural, creative and vibrancy gaps we all know exist in Gosford,” Supernova said.
“The Noodle was also seeking a small safe space to get emerging artists stage time before they hit the bigger stages.
“Lyons Den, as a visibly inclusive and progressive brand, wanted to add more creativity and innovation to their space – it’s a great match, a win-win to collaborate.
“We want everyone to feel welcome, to have fun, and to be themselves.”
Next week, DJ Delinquent Disposition will be hitting the decks with MIDAS, Tom Bones and Jack Williams also taking to the stage for live performances.
Co-owner of Lyons Den, Jared Lyons said ‘excited is an understatement’ to describe how he feels about partnering with the Noodle.
“We are so proud to partner with Juan [Iocco] and Glitta [Supernova] – we share their passion for bringing an arts and culture scene to Gosford and the wider Central Coast. before them, the Central Coast was hugely lacking in alternative entertainment,” Lyons said.
“They have closed that gap by bringing contemporary art, culture and entertainment to the Coast … they have vision and are professional and talented locals.
“As a queer owned venue, we wanted to play our part in bringing a gay night to the area.
“It’s all about a night that creates a social and connected space for the queer community and allies to have a regular hang and low-key fun!
“It’s a night to have a dance, a drink, enjoy the entertainment and have a gay-old-time.”
The venue will also be offering $10 rainbow bellinis – an exclusive cocktail only available on the night – along with their regular line up of African-styled bites.
