Once a month, a neighborhood Mexican restaurant in Silver Lake, LA was transformed into a beloved destination for music, dance, fashion and performance art. Much more than just a dance club, Dragstrip 66 was an irreverent and decadent celebration of self-expression, community, and imagination that invited everyone to participate in its misfit-inspired magic.
Dragstrip 66: The Frockumentary is a sponsored project of Film Independent, a non-profit independent media arts organization. Film Independent will receive grants for the charitable purposes of Dragstrip 66: The Frockumentary, provide oversight to ensure that grant funds are used in accordance with grant agreements, and provide reports as required by the grantor.
Contributions for the charitable purposes of Dragstrip 66: The Frockumentary must be made payable to Film Independent and are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Dragstrip 66 was the safe space where all the misfits and strange kids were put in the basement to party together.
Monthly themes like “Florence Of Arabia,” “Jocks ‘N Frocks,” “Trannie Get Your Gun,” and “Vegas In Space” inspired an explosion of spectacular and imaginative cross-dress and masquerade – and personas - from its dedicated patrons.
It all went down like a wild John Waters movie starring KISS and The Ramones -- as styled by Bob Mackie and Goodwill.
