[PHOTOS] Wacked OUT Black OUT

When you find something awesome you’ve got to share it with the world. And this is exactly what Bedlam Presents is doing with Wacked OUT Black OUT #7 this Saturday at Jungle Atlanta. Seriously. What could be better than hot guys painting each other with glow in the dark paint?

This isn’t a party where you want to arrive fashionably late. Starting at 10:30 p.m. the lights go out and the glow in the dark paint starts splashing. Those first few minutes where fine upstanding citizens with perfectly coiffed hair suddenly descend into a painted frenzy wearing nothing but their jockstrap is one of the best things you’ll see this summer. Also, don’t miss the special performance by Michael Robinson and the great beats from DJ Shane V.

Paul Beauchamp, who attended Wacked OUT Black OUT #6, described the party as, “By far one of the most unique and eclectic events in Atlanta. There’s something freeing about being able to just throw paint, drink, and dance the night away. I make a point to go everytime!”

Want a taste of what to expect before the lights go out tomorrow? Enjoy:

Joining Hearts 26

Joining Hearts 26

Atlanta’s favorite pool party is finally here! Joining Hearts 26 is set to make a huge splash this weekend with hundreds of guys in their swimsuits, complimentary Smirnoff cocktails, DJ Luis Perez, and DJ/Remixer Joe Gauthreaux. The party starts this Saturday at 4 p.m. and goes until 11 p.m. at the Piedmont Park Aquatic Center.

Joining Hearts’ pool parties are always fun and lighthearted; however, the work the organization does is serious and desperately needed. “Joining Hearts isn’t just about a party or an event; it’s a lifesaver and a tribute to life. To keep the connection to our mission, we remind our guests of the ongoing need for housing, and the important history our organization — even gong so far as to create displays noting how and where the money is spent,” the organization says on their website.

This year Joining Hearts is celebrating 26 years of serving those in need. It is their passion and dedication for helping Atlantans living with HIV and AIDS with housing support that fuels their success.

General admission tickets are sold out. However, you can still purchase a VIP ticket for $175 by clicking here. What is the benefit of VIP? You’ll have access to a private bar with complimentary Smirnoff cocktails, an air-conditioned exclusive VIP lounge experience, and delicious food by Bridge Catering.

Want to know the best thing about your ticket to Joining Hearts 26? “100% of every dollar raised through ticket sales and tips is donated to our beneficiaries, AID Atlanta and Jerusalem House,” according to Joining Heart’s website.

This year all tickets to the event are electronic. So, you don’t have to worry about printing anything out. Just remember to bring your ID. You have to be 21+ to get in. The Weather Channel, right now, is reporting a 30 percent chance of isolated thunderstorms on Saturday. But, don’t fear! The event will go on rain or shine. Last year’s event had occasional showers and the party didn’t miss a beat.

Want to stay up to date on everything Joining Hearts 26? You can follow #JH26 or sign up for text alerts here.

Still not sure what to expect? Check out our photos from last year:
