Kids of minimum legal pub/club going age (usually 17-18 years old) who frequent seedy suburban night clubs. Club kids usually work full time at a fastfood restaurant and still live at home with their parents. Their disposable income is high so they make up the 0.001% of the population who can afford the hideously overpriced drinks served at clubs. Club kids spend the entire night attached to their mobile phone ringing and texting other club kids.
Female club kids faces can not be seen under the 5cm of makeup, they wear 3 inch heels midriff tops and short miniskirts.
Male club kids wear turned up collar polos, jeans and white sneakers.
Club kids can be seen freezing while waiting in line at a club for 3 hours in the middle of winter. Club kids refuse to wear warm clothing as they never pay for the cloak room.
Conversation between two female club kids:
Female club kid 1: That guy is sooo hot!
Female club kid 2: He's like sooo checking you out!
a group of eccentric, wildly flamboyant young clubgoers who more or less defined new york city nightlife in the late 1980s and early 1990s. led my michael alig, who formed a coterie of young misfits (with aliases such as james st. james, richie rich, leigh bowery, kenny kenny, walt paper and amanda lepore) and promoted the notorious disco 2000 party which took place every wednesday night at the limelight.
the limelight (now the avalon, at 6th and 21st) was homebase for the club kids. other venues included tunnel, palldium and club usa. all of these clubs were owned by peter gatien. house was the favored musical genre, ecstacy the favored drug (along with ketamine and, later on, heroin). the club kids dressed in outrageous, over the top, often risque outfits and costumes. though not exclusively gay, the rave scene they started in new york had a definite homosexual bent and was hugely popular among drag queens and transgendered individuals.
escalating drug use and overdoses and more and more cases of aids among the club kids, along with then-mayor rudy giuliani's crackdown on nightlife in manhattan led to the demise of the club kids. michael alig murdered his drug dealer in 1996 and is currently still in prison.
it's wednesday. time to score some E and head down to the limelight with the club kids. who's putting on my makeup? and where are my assless chaps?
