I spent part of the June 12 evening at the All White Affair hosted by Lion Entertainment at the Russell Auditorium on Talbot Ave. Guests were encouraged to wear white clothes. While not mandatory, white was "strongly encouraged for the best glow effect." Most people complied. I wore a seersucker suit though it was still a bit chilly for this tropical wear. It had the intended effect under the black lights. Most attendees glowed in the dark.
The Russell Auditorium is an expansive space and the All White Affair made good use of the available square footage. Free glow products were distributed and they accentuated dancers' movements as they danced to the sounds of Mikey Million & Shortman, DJ Dexx and the incomparabale Riddim Ryder. It was a joyful and surreal experience and one that will be repeated in Boston Harbor on July Fourth.
The Peepin Glow Boatride sets sail on Independence Day. This event is open to the public. The exclusive ticket outlet is Singh's Roti Shop in Dorchester's own Edward Everett Square, across Columbia Road from KFC.
*Please note: the electical power problems on the boat have been fixed.* This is a quote from the ad on the All White Affair flyer.
