COME OUT AND PLAY: Join Alec Mapa For LifeWorks’ ‘We Are Golden’ VIP Event In LA on Sept. 27

Come one, come ALL to an unforgettable evening at “We Are Golden” on Monday, September 27 at Arena Nightclub in Los Angeles. This is a star-studded event with outrageously funny Alec Mapa as host and rock legend Perry Farrell (Jane’s Addiction), Etty Farrell, and Chris Cox headlining the concert. Witness as they introduce LA to their new electronic musical act “Perry-Etty vs. Chris Cox.”

Jody Watley (Grammy award winning R&B/jazz artist) brings her groove to an exclusive performance for the VIP Lounge. Carmit (solo artist formerly of The Pussycat Dolls) and the Beat Freaks (MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew) amp up the show and keep the audience rocking. Kina (Brownstone, “Girl in the Gutter”) tears it up with an entire Stomp the Yard crew. Experience vogue-ball culture in its most celebrated form as Grandfather Hector Xtravaganza brings together the children of the House of Xtravaganza for an out-of-this-world ball battle to be judged by world-renowned choreographer, Brian Friedman (X-Factor).
