Michelle Rodriguez DJ’ing GO’s Lesbian Nightlife Awards

Guess which smokin’ hot actress is hosting next week’s hottest NYC-area party?

Michelle Rodriguez. Betcha didn’t even know that she’s a DJ. Well, no one knew that Superman could fly either and then he was like Niagra Falls here I come. So are you gonna be there or what.

GO Magazine, the nation’s most widely distributed free lesbian publication, is hosting its 4th Annual “Readers’ Choice Nightlife Awards” on Tuesday, April 20 at M2 Ultra Lounge. This party is going to be so good that we’re actually voluntarily leaving our self-imposed Emily Dickensonian 2.0 bedrooms to socialize, dance, drink a lot of alcohol, and make sexually suggestive jokes about M-Ro.

Michelle rodriguezYeah we said M-Ro.

This year’s hotly anticipated event features actress Michelle Rodriguez – star of blockbusters like Avatar, Lost, Fast & Furious, and Girlfight – on the turntables as a very special Guest DJ.

Autostraddle correspondent and community activist Dani Campbell will host the evening, and award winning vocalist Anne Steele, recording artist Lori Michaels and acclaimed hip-hop duo KIN4LIFE round out the star-studded lineup.

“It’s going to be an incredible event,” says Amy Lesser, the event producer and publisher of GO Magazine. “No one parties like New York City’s lesbian community. Our annual Nightlife Awards are our chance to show our appreciation for the bartenders, party promoters, DJs and entertainers that make it all possible.”

Among some of the categories for awards given out, with our picks & predictions

Best Drink Deals: Free Vodka
Best Karaoke: Sweet Cruise

  1. I can’t decide whether I am insanely jealous because I am not in NY and can’t go or whether I should be relieved because if I lived in NY I would probably go “AAH! People!” and freak out and not go anyway.

  2. Now this is a time where I say, “”Why do I have to live in Toronto?!?! And why do the US legal age have to be 21!!” I love M-Ro!! So jealous of everyone that gets to go lol

  3. “Well, no one knew that Superman could fly either and then he was like Niagra Falls here I come. ” HAHA That was awesome.

    Wish I could go!

  4. Michelle Rodriguez in Fast & the Furious was kind of a serious badass. And for that reason alone I’d like to dance to the tunes she will be spinning at this party. I’m excited for reals.

  5. Yes finally!! We missed Rodeo Disco last year but we will *not* miss this.

    On second thought, the gf is a hardcore M-Ro fan. If she leaves me for her, will Team Auto adopt me? I don’t eat much.

  6. I’ve been looking for a good way to stalk M-Ro in an acceptable and non-creepy way, this makes me excitant!

  7. wait, is this for real? is “best eye candy behind the bar” actually an award? fuck work on wednesday, i will be there. hellooooooooo dani!

  8. i’ll be there, yay! Sweet Cruises obvs. has the best karaoke. Their book consisted of “I will survive” and “girls just want to have fun”.

  9. Nice! I hope to see some of the auto team here! Will you be sportin your autostraddle tanks from Dinah?

    • unfortunately my tank was stolen in the Great Drunken Fiasco of Dinah 2010. So I won’t. But I could wear red or an american flag or something so you can spot me. Name your color. Unless you are color blind. It’s okay if you are. We can figure it out together.

  10. Am I the only one who didn’t know that Michelle Rodriguez was a dj? Or that she was called M-Ro?

    Looking forward to hearing her jamz and also seeing dani and also The Team.

  11. Wish I could attend this to see M-Ro DJ – hope to see some photos and an event recap from team autostraddle!
