CULTURE/MUSIC: TOP8 INTERVIEW (SUPERSUPER! VOL 2 #001)

NYC-based club night TOP8 is “a place for friends”, where tweens, teens and not-so-teens relive their most colourful adolescent fantasies. With cosplay encouraged and dress-up expected, TOP8 is the place to stay young forever…

SS: How did TOP8 get started?

ER: Katy Perry inspired it – we wanted to live the ‘Teenage Dream’. TOP8 is the place to get caught smoking weed in the bathroom after kissing your first tranny.

SS: Does TOP8 attract a certain kind of crowd?

AK: People we trick into thinking we’re cool. It’s a place for friends.

ER: Like MySpace used to be.

SS: What are the outfits like?

ER: Cosplay is encouraged.

AK: Sexy babysitter on ketamine!

SS: Name some #TOP8highlights…

ER: Sophia Lamar on the mic, Mason Chambers King’s jock strap, VIRGIN DRAG QUEENS WHO POPPED THEIR CHERRIES @ TOP8.

SS: What’s in TOP8’s future?

AK: Cosmic Esperanto. Dreams, hopes, Coca-Cola, feelings, programs…
