Get `shagadelic’ tonight, baby

Those who enjoyed the Austin Powers film series can step right into the mod era at the Shagadelic Shindig tonight at the Double Diamond in Aspen.

The party is a fund-raiser for A Grassroots Aspen Experience’s 1999 Summer Youth Program.

The fun gets going at 9 p.m.; admission is $10 at the door.

The evening will feature the London Underground DJ playing the music of the Austin Powers era, video clips from the ’60s and people strolling the room dressed as Austin Powers and Felicity Shagwell. Also part of the event will be tattoo applications, flowers for the girls – daisies, of course – and contests to determine the Most Shagable, Best Get-up, Most Shagadelic, best “Yeah, baby, yeah!” and Best Swinger.

Winners are in for “cool goodie-goods.”

Attendees are, of course, invited to come in costume.

A Grassroots Aspen Experience is a local nonprofit organization that brings disadvantaged youth to the Aspen area for outdoor and cultural activities. The group’s 1999 Summer Youth Program is set to take place Aug. 1-11.
