Adelaide’s monthly queer and ally friendly dance space, Night Call pop party, is finally returning to Rhino Room on Saturday 17 April after a year long hiatus.
Following the closure of clubs due to COVID-19 in early 2020, Night Call is reopening its doors to the public to once again celebrate all things pop, R&B and hip hop from Y2K to today.
Founder and resident DJ Jenna Hawkins says she always knew she would re-open the doors and that without the support of the LGBTQIA+ community, Night Call wouldn’t still be possible.
“We have been doing this night for almost 8 years and it’s evolved so much thanks to their ongoing support. I really cherish how welcoming everyone has been and that each month we have such a strong crowd of regulars who are like family, but also that new people can come along, make new friends, join in on the feeling of leaving their inhibitions at the door and in the words of Lady Gaga ‘Just Dance’,” she says.
Night Call has been dubbed many things over the years including being described as a combination of spring breakers meets the bling ring, in a space that feels like Miley Cyrus and Lindsay Lohan partying together.
After 406 days without dancing, Jenna says guests should get ready to celebrate 2020’s biggest album drops including Dua Lipa’s ‘Future Nostalgia’, Miley’s ‘Plastic Hearts’, Kylie Minogue’s ‘Disco’ and Gaga’s ‘Chromatica’.
“It will be back upstairs at Rhino Room, so there’s more room for people to move around which I think is important. Plus, the return of the infamous stage! The focus of Night Call has always been music and dancing,” says Jenna.
Established in 2013, Night Call was created as a safe space for LGBTQIA+ inclusivity and female empowerment, and quickly became one of Adelaide’s most loved night scenes.
NIGHT CALL is located at Rhino Room at 1/131 Pirie Street, Adelaide, SA, 5000.
