Oh! You Pretty Things

When: September 4
The scene: Freddie Mercury fans started celebrating the virtuoso's birthday a few hours early, anxiously anticipating the stroke of midnight that would officially mark the passage of what would have been the legendary frontman's 65th year of life. The extravagant affair was fit for a king (or Queen), replete with cabaret acts and a captivating set by the magnificently intense glam-rock god Michael T and his band the Vanities . After Michael T closed the evening's performances with a gleeful call for everyone to "drink, do drugs and have sex in the bathroom," the crowd invaded the stage in a gyrating dance frenzy set to Iggy Pop's (fitting) tune "Lust for Life." Surely, Mercury would have been touched. (Photographs: Michael Alexander)
