'Gloss Not Over

"If you asked me two years ago what I thought the future of Lipgloss would be, I'd probably tell you that the night would be dead by now," remarks Lipgloss DJ and co-founder Tyler Jacobson. The weekly dance party has become a Friday-night staple in the Golden Triangle, and tonight it celebrates six years of hipster bump 'n' grind.

To commemorate the occasion, the 'Glossers are bringing in a super-secret surprise guest DJ (hint: think Omaha) and giving away VIP cards to the first fifty people through the door. And know this: There will be more cool-kid shenanigans throughout the night.

So, what is in store for Lipgloss after this? "I don't know what the future will be," Jacobson answers. "We've had a lot of wacky suggestions — like a TV show and a compilation disc — but we want to be fluid, open to new ideas. We'll see what comes around."

Come around to La Rumba, 99 West Ninth Avenue, for Lipgloss Turns 6, with DJs Michael Trundle, Jacobson and guests. Doors open at 9 p.m.; cover is $7. (Sorry, kiddies, this is a 21-and-over party.) Get lippy at www.denver3.com or 303-572-8006.
Fri., June 29, 9 p.m.
