Lethal Amounts is thrilled to announce the second anniversary of the Sex Cells club night featuring a special performance from music and cultural icon Marc Almond of Soft Cell. This is a particularly special night since Sex Cells was created in homage to the lurid and seedy lyrics of Marc Almond. It’s a combination of the band’s name and their song “Sex Dwarf.” The song describes a dominatrix in a Rolls Royce seducing a dwarf to participate in acts of exhibition and extremism to gain popularity and fame, who would fit in perfectly with the regular cast of characters that have come to define the night.

“Marc Almond is an inspiration to the night in many ways,” says creative directed and Lethal Amounts founder Danny Fuentes. . His lyrics speak to the disenfranchised trying to find meaning in life. He sings to the outsiders and the left behind. To me, Marc Almond is more than a singer because he is writing about the underclass in a beautifully romantic way and empowering us who don’t have many heroes to look up who genuinely speak to our kind.”
Although Sex Cells is a club night, patrons clubhouse for some of LA’s most eccentric and creative people to get decked out and turn heads with talent line-ups and music and truly unique to the night. As with most things Lethal Amounts, the club night has its foot in the past and in the future, paying homage to the originators of electronic music while playing modern day electro and techno that being played in London or Berlin and has yet to catch fire in America.
Marc Almond will be performing a shortened 40-minute live set, accompanied by his band. The night will include performances by legendary performance artist, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black, Hercules and Love Affair (DJ Set), Sateen and will feature resident Lethal Amounts resident DJ’s Danny Lethal and Matthew Pernicano along a number of exciting guest performers to be announced soon.
Leading into the celebratory night with Marc Almond the Lethal Amounts gallery will be hosting a Sex Cells photography exhibit opening at the gallery on Saturday, January 26th. The exhibit will feature the work of Levan TK who has captured the fascinating and eclectic cast of Sex Cells characters over the past two years.
