50. New York Club Kids: Murder of Angel Melendez featuring Caleb from Horror Soup

Today's episode features special guest co-host, Caleb, from Horror Soup!
Paige and Caleb discuss the life and times of the club kids, the death of Angel Melendez, the movie Party Monster, as well as some Nelson Sullivan's home videos that document a lot of the club kids' parties and gatherings.

Michael Alig, born in Indiana, was searching for freedom, happiness, and others who shared his common interests in New York. In the mid-80s Michael and a close friend, James St. James, started a new subculture that would rock the late 80s/early 90s scene called The Club Kids. Things started off great! As the drug use got heavier, coupled with hard drugs, possible personality disorders, and/or mental illnesses, things got dark really fast.
