“Every now and then a nightclub comes along where the most imaginative night creatures can be themselves to the core and walk the wild side of human existence. So what if it takes you two weeks to get your inner look on the outside, you now have a place to glow! I didn’t get to go to Studio 54 in New York, but I did get to go to Blitz Club in London, Club Makeup in LA, and Motherfucker in New York. I can tell you Danny Fuentes has put LA back on the Map with SEX CELLS. It’s where all the Street Walking Cheetahs need to be !”
– Nick Launay

For their one year anniversary, Lethal Amounts teamed up with Goldenvoice, a kindred spirit whose roots are forged in championing the underground, to bring their monthly club night Sex Cells to the El Rey Theatre. The club has re-energized the nightlife scene in Los Angeles with the imaginative curation and the colorful cast of characters, who attend each month. This past year has seen Sex Cells host a wide variety of incredible artists and creative guests such as Sky Ferreira, Cold Cave, Nick Zinner (The Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Brooke Candy, Miss Kittin, Amanda LePore, Traci Lords, Prayers and even the original party monster, Michael Alig.
Sex Cells is the vision of Lethal Amounts owner and creative head Danny Fuentes. Sex Cells was started as a platform to showcase upcoming artists, and has developed a reputation for unexpected lineups, bringing together talent who normally would never share the same stage and providing a safe space to let your freak flag fly.
“It’s my kind of playground… one for us fabulous freaks” -Traci Lords
Sex Cells packs out every month, attracting a wide array of characters due to the openness of the environment, and creative freedom Fuentes and his team foster and encourage. ”Sex Cells is the perfect outlet for creative people looking for more than just another club night,” says performer Amanda LePore. “It’s a place where anything can happen and it encourages people to go outside the lines. I couldn’t of asked for a better line up to be a part of.”
Wes Eisold of Cold Cave says “Sex Cells is total freedom. A post-everything universe of its own… what you spent your whole youth imagining what the night could be.” DJ Keoki, a veteran of the New York Club Kid scene said, “the world is losing its religion but LA has a new punk pope in Fuentes and Sex Cells is our church. Sex cells ….best party this side of the fuckin apocalypse.”

ABOUT LETHAL AMOUNTS
Lethal Amounts, the creation of Danny Fuentes – focuses on subversive and counter culture themes throughout history, addressing the social and artistic value of underground movements while highlighting taboo topics. Lethal Amounts showcases the extremes of those individuals who have moved culture forward and live on the edge of and outside of societal norms – Rock ‘n Roll of the past that has crossed over into pop culture fanaticism, street culture influences and cult hero worship to name a few ever-present themes.
Lethal Amounts inhabits a physical gallery space in downtown Los Angeles that features three exhibition rooms and over 2,500 sq. ft. In addition to the gallery space, Lethal Amounts hosts and produces events throughout Los Angeles, including the monthly Sex Sells party, a clothing line that sees them partner with like-minded musicians and artists to release original licensed shirt designs and much much more.
