Crown & Anchor Turns Up The Heat For Independence 2013

Thursday Jan 17, 2013

If the cold weather has you down, think about Provincetown in the heat of July, and get ready to book discounted tickets for Independence 2013 starting February 15th.

The Crown & Anchor each year plays host to thousands of circuit boys who travel to the Cape Cod destination for "Circuit Week," seven days of partying under the sun (and the disco lights). It's a must-go event for party boys, despite the fact that the town, and its venues, are among the smallest for such parties across the nation.

That doesn't mean the Crown makes of Independence Week a small affair; not only is the complex host to three bars, a restaurant, pool deck and hotel, but it also traditionally brings in the biggest names in DJs to spin Paramount, its largest club.

This year, the lineup includes San Francisco native DJ Grind on Saturday, June 29; P'town newbie Edil Hernandez on Sunday, June 30; Boston-based Ranny on Monday, July 1; favorite Alyson Calagna on Tuesday, July 2, and Milan's own Danny Verde for Wednesday, July 3. The big night - Thursday the 4th - will feature Joe Gauthreaux in a hot, late-night set, followed by Roland Belmares on Friday the 5th and Tony Moran on Saturday the 6th.

To kick the party up a notch, The Crown has paired up with Chris Ryan Productions of NYC; together they'll throw four daytime pool parties on the deck, plus an Andrew Christian fashion show, hot body contest and two events with... well, suggestive themes: a "Towel Drop" party and something called "Find My Goods." It's P'town, kids; anything goes. Your party host is NYC-based drag diva Dallas Dubois.

Here's the dish on early tickets: for those planning on booking the hotel (get on this fast, there are only 18 rooms and they'll sell out fast), you can score 7 nights for the price of 5 right now. For those looking for party passes, tickets go on sale February 15, and discounts will be available for the first 30 days.
