The Saint At Large, gaydom's premier traveling party since 1980, announces its DJ lineup for RITES XXIX: THE DANGEROUS BLACK PARTY FOR BOYS. The Black Party? is an internationally recognized underground dance event held annually at New York City's landmark, Roseland Ballroom. The party, an homage to ancient Druidic pagan rituals, celebrates the Rites of Spring on the occurrence of the Northern Hemisphere's Vernal Equinox.

Stephan Grondin, a rising star on the global music scene from Montreal's Club Stereo, will be the opening DJ. Grondin performs regularly at New York's weekly party WORK AT STEREO. Jonathan Peters, recognized as the #1 DJ in the country with monthly sold out events at Pacha NYC, will be the headlining superstar during the peak hours of the party. Increasingly popular on the gay club circuit, DJ Joe Gauthreaux will close the night with a sampling of new remixes of Black Party favorites.

This year's theme is a reference to the best-selling DANGEROUS BOOK FOR BOYS, promoting a back to basics - boys will be boys - protocol. Cutting-edge music, strange live acts, state of the art lighting and thematic d?cor will enhance the 18+ hour magical journey that revelers experience from this "ultimate fetish fag blowout" (TIMEOUT NEW YORK).

Tickets: $110 through March 13th; $125 March 14th through Day-of Event; $140 at the door (if available). $40 after 4 AM if born after September 20, 1980 (opening night of The Saint). A reentry fee of $10 will be available at the venue. Advance tickets available online via SAINTATLARGE.COM and through NYC ticket outlets: The Leather Man, 111 Christopher Street; Steel Gym, 126 West 23rd Street; Nasty Pig, 269A West 19th Street; Wear Me Out, 353 West 47th Street and Screaming Mimi's, 382 Lafayette Street.
