Many a fashionable tear was shed when bygone hotspot Glam died a premature death in June 2008 and, thus, brought an end to Jared Alan's explosively popular fauxShow Friday Night. Since that dark day, the hunky hipster DJ started a new joint (Cheap Thrills) but continued to search for a new home for his original party. The search apparently has ended, as fauxShow will re-debut on Friday, November 13, at Sanctum, 4343 North Seventh Avenue. Although Alan's got a new partner, in the form of fellow spinster Goldzsmith, he'll continue to bring the beautiful types the same blend of electro, indie, and other energetic jams. The bathrooms at Sanctum are unisex, however, which should lead to hook-up sessions that are a bit more "interesting" than the kind that went down at Glam. Doors open at 9 p.m. See www.myspace.com/fauxshowaz.
