Ukrainian boy band KAZAKY are kicking off the worldwide premiere of their The Secret Mission Tour at XL Nightclub. Former fans of ’NSync and the Backstreet Boys be warned: KAZAKY, made up of Artur, Oleg, Kiril and Stas, were assembled in Kiev in 2010 and are best known for wearing stiletto heels in videos and live performances, and they became world-famous when Madonna, that pioneering pop culture lover of anything gender-bending, used them in her “Girl Gone Wild” video. Their music is a loud mix of synthpop, electronica and dance, and it has not only won over Madonna, but also designers Dsquared and Thierry Mugler, who have dressed the guys. The video for their first single, “In the Middle,” replete with elaborately decadent, form-fitting custom costumes and 5.5-inch heels, went viral. Log on to YouTube for a naughty, NC-17-lite taste.
XL Nightclub, 512 West 42nd Street, (212) 239-2999, 9pm, tickets start at $20.
