ANDREW WK playing New Museum, calling New Venue “Santos’ Party House”, working with Lee Scratch Perry
Something tells me that Andrew WK is just amusing himself by calling the venue fomerly known as SANTA’S Party House, “Santos’ Party House“, but who knows…
Santos’ Party House has prepared their downstairs space for a series of nightly pre-opening parties. Now you can come dance. The upstairs will be open soon.
Santos’ Party House is located at 100 Lafayette Street, one block south of Canal Street, Manhattan, New York City.
Santos’ Party House is a two-level, 8000 sq. foot venue, centrally located in the downtown New York City, straddling Chinatown and Tribeca.
Focused on blurring the lines between music and art culture, the venue is designed to function as a concert hall, dance club, and lounge.
Featuring a top-notch, global lineup of weekly residents and one-off events, Santos’ Party House has been built from the ground up to rival any venue in the world.
More coming… [Andrew WK]
