Was ist ORCHID?

It’s ORCHID. We dance the pain away.

ORCHID ist eine Party, bei der statt Gay/Lesbian-Regenbogen-Klischees die offene Queer-Vielfalt zelebriert wird. Das spiegelt sich in zeitlos geschmackssicherer Musikauswahl jenseits des Rosa-Mainstream-Geblubbers wider, gebrochen mit gut dosierten geschmacksverunsichernden Trash-Momenten. Von Musik über Artwork bis zu Deko: alles im Geiste einer Queer Avantgarde/DIY Punk/Fashionista Idee. ORCHID versucht aber nicht nur hedonistischer Community-Party-Treffpunkt zu sein, sondern hilft mit dem erfeierten Erlös über das ehrenamtliche Veranstaltungskollektiv Musikverein auch queere Künstler*innen zu supporten und ein bisschen mehr Queer Culture nach Nürnberg zu bringen.

ORCHID ist eine Queer Party, die auf all die rosa Mainstreamklischeeparties mit einer intimeren Undergroundvariante in der Kantine kontert, bei der alle willkommen sind, die jenseits einer heteronormativen Partyroutine feiern wollen.

ORCHID is a non-profit party at Zentralcafé at the K4 (Künstlerhaus) Nürnberg, Germany. All money made goes to guest bookings or queer bands playing at the Zentralcafe. (Okay, sometimes it also goes to the candy you get at the entry or to fake moustaches.)

The name ORCHID refers loosely to the fantastic band ORCHID with their unforgotten ‘Dance tonight, Revolution tomorrow’. And to the ORCHID facility on the island in LOST that looked like a botanical research centre but did exotic matter research for time travelling. And of course the luscious sexy flower.

Host & dj is EVE MASSACRE. She used to play in THE FLAMINGO MASSACRES, a postpunk band and that’s where her name comes from. She also was pretty productive in the bootleg / mash up scene and more and more got the hang of djing over the years. Her sets are eclectic and range from disco sweetness to dirty rock stompers, from electro house bangers to candyfloss-glitter-twee-pop, from riot indie punk to relaxed chillwave, from post dubstep goodies to armageddon witch house, from something old to something new, something borrowed, something blue.

EVE MASSACRE and ORCHID also are part of MUSIKVEREIN, a collective of people who put up shows and parties at the k4 in nuremberg, germany. MUSIKVEREIN is no ‘business’, it’s more of a d.i.y. spare time thing by people who love music and love to put some work into creating their own cultural scene instead of just consuming.
