We missed out on the events previews last week...So, this being the somewhat official last weekend of summer: here's a rundown of NYC area events this week.
Get out there and shake it in the sunshine wearing white pants and get ready for a (great) winter inside the club.
SATURDAY ATJ - day and night
I'm really proud to be associated with and playing at such a great event. If you haven't taken the time to read about the Bronx High School for the Visual Arts and their plans to beef up their music programs with the donations from the festival, please take a minute. Then buy a ticket and strap on your dancing shoes. Things are gonna get wild when the sun sets with The Virgins, Soulico, FREE BLOOD, and of course Riot in Belgium.
SUNDAY AFTJ - on a boat while the sun sets
People Don't Dance No More (my party) + Finger on the Pulse are getting together to throw a wrap up boat party on Sunday at 6 pm. We have a super huge guest DJ duo joining us on the boat and we'll be cruising and grooving til 10 pm. Tickets should be on Ticketweb, but get to the boat around 6 pm and you should be fine. $15 is cheaper than a Circle Line cruise and you get to hang out with your friends, not your cousins from Ohio. All proceeds from the party are of course going to the kids, so spread the word and help pack the boat. Pictures from our last boat outing are here and here. Don't miss out on the last one of the summer!
Email BVCONTESTS@HOTMAIL.COM (subject: jump) for a chance to win one of TEN PAIRS of combo tickets to the After the Jump night party, and Sunday's Boat Party. Tell us which band are you most looking forward to seeing at ATJ (and your first and last name for guestlist).
ESCORT at PS 1
The show of the season at last year's PS1's Warm Up was definitely Escort. They are back again this year to glitter their way through new material and turn the sun into a giant discoball hanging over the courtyard. This is your last chance to dance at PS1. Next weekend goes to the rockers.
Other dancing to be done:
Thursday - Aug 23
* Foreign Islands at Hiro
* Dirtybird Monthly at Apt with Justin Martin & Worthy
Friday - Aug 24
* There is an amazing Acid House night going down at Sullivan Room. DJ Pierre and Phuture (inventors of the sound) are going to work the 303s till the knobs fall off. "This is cocaine speaking..."
* Finger on the Pulse turns two back at Royal Oak. Pour one out and dance til dawn
* Everyone in New York DJs at the Ruff Club at Annex
* James F'ing Friedman turns 21 at 205
Todd Terje is coming, Todd Terje is coming!
Todd Terje: the Norwegian Disco re-edit ninja and homeboy of Prins & Lindstrom is coming to Prince Language's No Comprendo disco night next Wednesday in the basement of 205! Don't sleep on this one.
