Card for Michael Alig’s Filthy Mouth Contest at Palladium, 1987.
5.5 x 8.5in.
Michael Alig (1966-2020), party promoter and disgraced former Club Kid, was the organizer of this “filthy mouth” competition with judges DJ Andy Anderson, DJ Anita Sarko (1947-2015), and gossip columnist Michael Musto. In the late 80s and early 90s, Alig and the Club Kids personified New York City nightlife. It all collapsed dramatically in 1996 when Alig murdered another member of the group. As club chronicler Musto wrote, “You not only killed Angel, you basically murdered nightlife.”
