Sebastian @ Studio B, Brooklyn, NYC - May 7, 2008(ameliemelo148)

Early Friday evening (May 9, 2008) Midnight Juggernauts hit Bowery on their North American tour along with Shy Child and Holy Ghost.

Then what?

The next logical choice would be the official Midnight Juggernauts afterparty which also happens to be a stop on Turbo Recordings' Omni Dance Tour. Turbo is a great electronic label based out of Montreal with some impressive releases from the likes of Chromeo, Boys Noize, and Tiga just to name a few. This time around they are bringing D.I.M. whose amazing tracks "Is You" and "Airbus", as well as his remix of the Presets' "My People", have been cycling through all the electronic music blogs with good reason. Label mate Thomas Von Party will also be deejaying. You can download a number of Thomas' mixes through the Sid Loves Turbo podcast which is produced by Montreal design collective, Sid Lee and Turbo Recordings. New York's own poppy, funky, rockers, 33Hz round out the bill with a live performance.....

Email with your name and number of guests for free admission.

In addition to several mixes by artists on Turbo Recordings, the Sid Loves Turbo podcast features some mixes done by friends on other labels. One such mix was recently done by Oskar Melzer whom Thomas Von Party describes as, "...a club-owning, Schnitzel-eating, trendy- DJ'ing, Lufthansa-traveling young man with impeccably great taste."

The mix is just what you need to prepare for option #2 for later on Friday evening: Stop Progress! Max Pask welcomes Oskar Melzer for his one-year anniversary at APT. 10pm / $10 / (house, techno, electro, disco).

Option 3: (I couldn't believe this when I saw it), deja vu, anyone?:


When good deejays pass through the Tribeca Grand things tend to get pretty crazy over there. That combined with the party being on a Friday will hopefully bring some excitement that was lacking at the half-full Studio B Wednesday night.

Option 4:

Fixed is back at Studio B once again. JDH and Dave P are bringing in a bunch of artists from Germany's Get Physical label to help XLR8R celebrate their 15th Anniversary. XLR8R is a great publication. Learn a little bit about how the magazine was started in this interview with XLR8R founder, Andrew Smith.

In addition to it being a celebration, it is also a stop on Get Physical's North American tour. The tour has featured a variety of acts from the German label thus far with M.A.N.D.Y., Heidi, and Audiofly scheduled to deejay Friday. M.A.N.D.Y. co-owns Get Physical with Booka Shade and DJ T. For an idea of what you might be in for, take a look at M.A.N.D.Y.'s top ten tracks for April on Resident Advisor. Get Physical has also created a site specifically dedicated to the tour which features bios, tour diaries, and some promo mixes from the artists on tour available for download.

Advance tickets available here and at Other Music (15 E. 4th St.)

Option 5:

Fools Gold

Fool's Gold and Re:UP celebrate the release of their 15th issue at Trophy Bar. Dave-1 of Chromeo (who's featured on the cover) will be deejaying along with Egg Foo Young, Queen Majesty, Barthalona From Ibitha, and Brougham D'Elegance. Free with RSVP, $5 at the door.

Has anyone ever gone to the robot rock parties at le royale? How is it there? I can't tell from the door if it's a pretentious scene or not, but I'm curious. Worth checking out?

I have been to a few of the Robot Rock parties. The crowd is kind of ehh. A lot of people are usually there just to be out on a Friday and could care less who is deejaying. But depending on who is deejaying or what band is playing there is also usually a good amount of people there to get down too. It can get pretty packed.

The door is hit or miss depending on when you get there. If you get there on the earlier side and there's not a big line there is usually not much trouble getting in. If you get there and the line is getting long and your group is made up of mostly guys they are going to give you a hard time.

Annoying door policies are unfortunately just a fact of life at this point, but I think D.I.M. is going to be very good and worth checking out despite the whackness you might have to deal with at the door.

Hey, thanks. I went to robot rock at movida back in the day once, but thought the crowd kinda sucked. A lot of these types of parties are hit or miss, I think. I was at a bachelor party over the weekend and we went to the hiro pretty late, and they were still being dicks at the door since we were a bunch of dudes, despite the time of night.

Is le royale a cool space, though? Is the sound good? I will probably check it out.

Yeah, the crowd kinda sucks. I just try to focus on the music. The sound is fine. The space is pretty small. The is a bar on the main level w/ a small lounge area in the back usually with a resident or lesser known deejay.

The headliners are usually upstairs. There is an area where the deejays are at one end of the room, and a stage at the opposite. It is pretty small and gets pretty packed.

It's pretty fun if you stake out a spot w/ your friends and kind of just plant yourselves there and try to get some elbow room and get down.

I took 1 st mortgage loans when I was not very old and this supported my relatives a lot. However, I require the financial loan again.

People are usually ready to spend a lot of cash for speed optimization. As a fact, the article submission services should have great earnings.
