May Star’s Diamond Dust Debuts at Kitty Diamond

Though the Flame burned out, the iconic signage will remain.
Though the Flame burned out, the iconic signage will remain.

After nearly seven years of curating the monthly Fashion Whore (largely at the Ruby Room), Club Pop, and other club parties, promoter May Star is dropping her usual dance nights to initiate a new monthly event at the under-construction Kitty Diamond.

The venue’s Park Boulevard location in Hillcrest was previously home to the Flame.

The Diamond is being cut by designers Bells & Whistles (the aesthetic minds behind the Loft at UCSD and Starlite), under the vision of former Beauty Bar manager Erica Jessup, whose résumé includes stints at Olé Madrid, Voyeur, U-31, and the Onyx Room.

May Star’s Diamond Dust debuts at the venue’s grand opening on May 19 with two rooms of music and a fashion show from five local designers and around 75 models.

One room will showcase Star’s signature dance-friendly electro, indie, nu-disco, “with a possible chance of ’90s music,” from Tigh, Futureweapon, and Volz, while the other hosts disco dance-off Bosom Buddies with Dr. Trevorkian (free dance lessons 9 to 9:45 p.m.), Joemama, and El Vee.

RSVP to [email protected] for a Three Olives Vodka–hosted bar from 9 to 10 p.m.

Sticking with the Flame’s landmark neon signage, Kitty Diamond will host live music, burlesque, and dance nights. The venue’s adjoined dive bar, the 40th Door, will open in July.

You can take a look at Kitty Diamond’s soft opening on May 18 followed by Manntar Minor Thursday nights (happy hardcore/dubstep), events with Gabe Vega and Saul Q., and, at the end of May, Mondays with blues-rock gems Lady Dottie and the Diamonds.

Club Sabbat, the venue’s staple goth/industrial/darkwave dungeon, will continue to convene at the location every second, fourth, and fifth Saturday.

Yeah....totally not ok with the name change at all. The Flame has been an icon in Hillcrest for decades. I get wanting to change things up. Fine. Gut the inside, as has been done at least a dozen times before, but leave the name. It's name is it's history. The place burned to the ground years ago and was rebuilt and crowned "The Flame". To change it now is just silly, especially given that the name still fits the format change.

Oh, and also, Club Sabbat is only there on the 2nd and 5th Saturdays. On the 4th Saturdays it's at Numbers across the street.
