After an evening of remembrance at HOWL Happening, come toast the brilliant Terence Sellers with a glass of sparkling Prosecco.
Per Empress Chi Chi Valenti on the Facebook page for the HOWL Happening event:
Beloved authoress, editrix and female-dominant icon TERENCE SELLERS was Downtown Royalty for four decades. Best known for THE CORRECT SADIST, her 1983 classic tome written as MISTRESS ANGEL STERN, she was also an important force in Night Culture: She left her mark during the MUDD CLUB years, as THE CONTORTIONS cover muse and No Wave film star, at JACKIE 60 and its reading series VERBAL ABUSE, at BLACKLIPS and as a Versailles Room fixture at CLICK + DRAG and MOTHER. Like many a Living Legend, her clock ran out suddenly, and she left us in January 2016 after a very brief illness. This being her birthday week, we at THE JACKIE FACTORY are organizing a very correct tribute at HOWL HAPPENING - the last place she loved in NYC.
Readings of her important works including THE CORRECT SADIST and her memoir ONE DECADENT LIFE will be front and center, along with film clips, photographs and a soundtrack of her essential music.
Readers and Participants include members of THE HOUSE OF DOMINATION (MARTI, GLORIA, JESSICA RABBIT, EVA, EMPRESS, MUFFY and APOLLONIA DOMINATION), JOHANNA CONSTANTINE, DJ ALTHEA LOVELESS (MOTHER), GOODIE MAGAZINE, HATTIE HATHAWAY, AMOS POE and more.
(Free and no RSVP required - bring roses)
After the gallery event, we'll be drowning our sorrows and toasting The Goddess at:
168 AVENUE B (bet. 10-11 St.)
