Celebrate Nine Years of Haute to Death

Have you ever attended a Haute to Death party? If you have, you already know what I'm about to say, but if you haven't, listen up! Haute to Death throws some of the best parties in Detroit. They are magical, in the way that I always imagined Studio 54 used to be. Everyone is there. Everyone looks great, and everyone dances. If you are looking for a night of no holds barred fun, this is where you will find it.

DJs Ash and Jon spin a mix of post punk, new wave, italo, electro, diva house and more and they do not take requests because why the fuck should they, it's their party! They also never charge very much to come out and play. Tickets for their nine year bash will be $3 at the door before midnight and $5 after. The Temple Bar opens its doors at 10 p.m. for the party this Saturday, October 29th and 21+ are welcome to come out.

In honor of H2D's 9th birthday we asked Ash Nowak 9 questions about the duo's past, present and future. Check it out and get ready to party this Saturday!

HID-If you could “do-over” one party from the last 9 years which one would it be?
H2D-We only ever want to do-over parties in the sense we wish that we could go again immediately after they end (which is most of them.) But right now with winter approaching, we're really wishing that we could go back to our Swim Club series from the summer.

HID- After 9 years years of Haute to Death, what are you most proud of?
H2D-The family we've cultivated! We're lucky to have a dance floor full of so many fun and freaky people, some we've known for years and some who are first timers. We really pride ourselves on offering a diverse, safe space where everyone is welcome.

HID- Do you have a go to dance move? If so what is it?
H2D-It depends how deep into the night we are- but typically, one hand is for a drink, the other is for an elaborate jazz routine.

HID- Gold or Silver?

H2D-Silver for tequila, gold for everything else.

HID- If I gave you a million and you had to spend it, how would you blow it?
H2D-We'd be tempted to throw some serious events with that kind of cash, but we've thrown some serious events without it... We'd most likely start a peer-run grant program for Detroit creatives.

HID- If you could time travel would you go to the future or the past?
H2D-We're not afraid of the future, but our aesthetic universe is (happily) stuck in the 80s.

HID- What's on the Haute to Death bucket list?

H2D-So much! Now that we're approaching 10, we're starting to plan for the *next* 10. You'll have to sign up for our mailing list to see what we're up to ;)

HID- What’s your go to karaoke song?
H2D-Jon does a solid rendition of Bowie's China Girl. Ash's go-to is Never Tear Us Apart by INXS

HID- Where do you see yourself in five years Haute to Death?
H2D-We'll be wherever you are (and hopefully some new places, too!)
