Twin Peaks Night was every fan's dream party. And this is how it began...
Staying up late at night in the early 90s watching Twin Peaks completely warped a young boy’s mind, and Heaven Malone was very grateful for it.
But he was not the only one. Legions of Twin Peaks fans across the country wanted a bit more. Visiting Snoqualmie Falls, the Double R Diner for a slice of cherry pie, and even throwing a few parties beyond marathon showings of the series.
In 2006, Heaven Malone produced a massive Twin Peaks warehouse party. A giant black lodge, hundreds of donuts, vodka tinged espresso shots and billowing red drapes adorned the DJ booth, where Chicago house & electro music producers remixed the original songs of Angelo Badalamenti into completely new dance tracks.
In 2014, inspired by the success of the official “David Bowie Is” parties sponsored by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Heaven Malone & Scott Cramer of LQQKS at Berlin Nightclub decided to bring Twin Peaks back with original Twin Peaks dance remixes, incredibly creative drag & burlesque performances and creating a black lodge photobooth with cutout characters & props from the series designed by DJ Brock Manke.
Hundreds of fans came out to partake in the celebration of all things Twin Peaks. So many in costume you could barely tell who was audience or performer. But the performances of a female Agent Cooper (Miss Tosh) stripping to “Cherry Pie”, Little Mike (Jojo Baby) performing Bowie’s Man Who Sold The World, and the most outrageous Log Lady ever (Lucy Stoole) as our MC made this an unforgettable experience.
Serendipitously, we were graced with the news of the return of Twin Peaks with David Lynch. And Twin Peaks Night became one for the books, continuing through 2015 and 2016.
The final Twin Peaks Night was on Thursday, June 1st 2017 at Berlin Nightclub.
