MUSIC: ‘I Love It!’ Icona Pop Turns Spotlight on NYC’s Ballroom Culture

SCENE FROM 2013 LATEX BALL IN NEW YORK CITY

SCENE FROM 2013 LATEX BALL IN NEW YORK CITY

Swedish sensation Icona Pop takes over Webster Hall tonight (Sept. 20) for a sold-out show in New York City, solidifying the gravitational pull of the duo’s Iconic Tour. The girls are fresh off their Radio City Music Hall début this week on the America’s Got Talent finale.

But, I’m even more excited about the new official extended video for the track, All Night, which gives loving props to NYC’s House and Ballroom community. Finally! What a breath of fresh air to see and hear from some of the scene’s living legends and young mavericks. It was great to see icon Hector Xtravaganza, Father Jose Xtravaganza, Mother Leiomy, Gisele, Derrick, Javier, Princess Lockerooo, Marie, Chi Chi, Jeremy and Pony doing their thing in the spotlight! In the words of Icona Pop … I love it!

FYI, I’ll have a photo gallery from this year’s Latex Ball soon, so check back to the blog for more on the scene. Until then, read Queerty‘s full coverage here.
