There will be a hint, but not too much, of that irony in the proceedings: Along with a Social Lubrication Hour of Power with free drinks by Citadelle Gin, aerial dance by Midnight Martini, a photo booth and spins by DJs Goulet, Yofi and Amuse, Heebonism 2012 will feature a live confession booth and a Midnight Mass-ive party. “We want to be respectful,” Elkins explains. “After all, it is Christmas. We always try to be inclusive. While we were planning this, we had some spectacular ideas — but we’re trying to be irreverent without being disrespectfully so.”
Whatevs: This party will not only rock, it’ll also serve charity, with a bone-marrow donation table taking swabs and a clothing-collection drive for the Fulda Fund. Heebonism tips off tonight at 8:30 p.m. at the Church, 1160 Lincoln Street; admission is $18 in advance or $25 at the door ($20 with a donation of three new or lightly used clothing items).
