Internet Week 2011 is coming to NYC this Monday (6/6). The festival consists of several events, including mixers, panels, conferences, classes, and parties. The Rapture, who are back on DFA, are DJing the official Internet Week opening party with The Hood Internet and DJ Frankenmack. Cold Cave also play a live set at the party. The same night an after-party will take place with DJ sets from Holy Ghost! and Night People. Check out the full event schedule for more events including a discussion with Judah Friedlander and Michael Ian Black and more.
The two parties are invite-only and can be RSVP'd to with an insider pass which can be obtained here for the hefty price of $249 (or HERE for $149). If you can't muster up the cash, even though it may be worth it if you plan on attending all the rest of the stuff Internet Week has going on, we're giving away two insider passes. Contest details below. You can also pick up a HQ pass for just $15 and a tweet about your purchase but will not be allowed access to the parties.
The Internet Week event is one of three NYC shows Cold Cave currently have scheduled this summer. They also play Knitting Factory on July 12 with Cult of Youth and Zambri and Bowery Ballroom on August 6 with Austra. Tickets are still on sale for Knitting Factory and Bowery Ballroom.
