Top Five New Years Eve Parties in Metro Phoenix
By day, Suzy Homewrecker is the supervisor of a local laboratory that studies pathology and immunohistochemistry. At night or on the weekends, however, the 30-year-old crimson-haired vixen becomes a tough-as-nails roller derby queen, a gothy go-go dancer, or industrial music DJ known as Defense.Mekanizm. It all depends on her particular mood or whatever event she's planning on performing at calls for, like the monthly Cupcake! fetish night parties at the Rogue that she performs at along with cohort/fiance DJ Self.Destrukt.
This coming Tuesday, Homewrecker and her equally bizarre-looking beau will reign over the kooky crowd and spin up industrial, electro, and other hard-edged sounds at the New Year's Eve edition of Cupcake!, which has been subtitled "Berserk! Cirque!" They're hoping the fetishistic fiesta will provide an more interesting Auld Lang Syne alternative for fellow freaks or any one else interested in avoiding otherwise boring New Year's Eve experience. -- Benjamin Leatherman
