If you love Lestat, Marius, Mekare, Julien Mayfair, Petyr Von Abel, or any of the other divine literary creations of Anne Rice, it was a very special Halloween this year (2002) in New York City. The overdressed nocturnal artistes of JACKIE 60 and CLICK + DRAG hadn't teamed up on Halloween since 1999 at their old clubhouse MOTHER. For Halloween 2002, when invited by CBGB's GALLERY to take on October 31st venue-wide, the tribes eagerly opted to reunite for THE WITCHING HOUR, a spectacular, pansexual ball inspired by the literature of ANNE RICE.
In the spirit of the fabled "Coven Balls" held by Rice's New Orleans fan club through 2000, the producers invited all partygoers to dress "as their favorite Rice literary creation, no matter how obscure. Of course this night celebrated Lestat, Louis and the other Vampyres who made Rice a household name, but it paid equal homage to her other characters and dynasties - The Mayfair Witches, the Taltos, The Talamasca, Memnoch the Devil, Pandora et al. The five hundred attendees ranged from hardcore Riceans to costume fanatics to once-a-year Goths - but EVERYONE was dressed!
