Xeno & Oaklander @ final WIERD, 2/27/2013
Xeno & Oaklander

As discussed, WIERD has become Very Rare after the final night last Wednesday (2/28) featuring Xeno & Oaklander (read Josh Strawn's thoughts). We've now got a set of pictures from the WIERD's goodbye in this post.

Thankfully, the dark vibes will continue on Wednesdays at Home Sweet Home with the announcement of the appropriately named "Nothing Changes", a new party that will feature much of the same focus, musically. "Nothing Changes" kicks off with this week's FREE party (3/6) featuring Avana and Hi-Fi Hillary, with the rest of the month scheduled to feature Syb Vicious/Hi-Fi Hillary (3/13, FREE), Delphic Oracle + DJs (3/20, $5) and Azar Swan + DJs ($5, 3/27). Check out the flyer below alongside more pictures from the final WIERD (2/27).

You may know Josh Strawn through his work in current projects Azar Swan and Vaura but he was also an integral part of WIERD and, before that, a fan of the music. Strawn has played the weekly party with three separate projects (Vaura, Religious to Damn, Blacklist) over the years, so he was able to add some special insight about last night's final WIERD Wednesday event and it's place in the current NYC scene. Strawn's thoughts are below. - Fred Pessaro

I dont know whether to be bummed or happy that WIERD is coming to an end tonight at Home Sweet Home (2/28). On the one hand, I have seen some incredible shows at the space over the years. But on the other hand, I have spent many a rough Thursday morning swearing off alcohol and cursing myself for having too much fun late, late, late into the evening. I'm gonna go with bummed.

Tonight is the FINAL WIERD night at Home Sweet Home, featuring the great Xeno & Oaklander along with DJ sets from Jeralyn, Glenn and Frankie Teardrop. Expect good tunes, great dance songs and beaucoup fog and for future WIERD parties to become "Very Rare." Be there or... be bummed.

WIERD

On behalf of the Wierd World I wanted to let you all know that the last Wierd Party at Home Sweet Home will be on Wednesday, February 27th. We have staged 500+ events over the course of the last decade, and I feel we have achieved what we all set out to do together when the party began.

Needless to say, the idea of ending IT is a very complex proposition. For above all the one thing I have learned from the Wierd is that because 'IT' is Very Rare - IT does not exist, and as a result ending IT is impossible. VR.

We have built a thorough archive of the party's history with all the fliers and weekly Wierd emails which is now live and up to date, check it out here:

Thank you for your devoted, undying interest and support all these years. I hope you enjoy the last month in the Wierd, we have an incredible set of shows lined up for February. See you all soon once again in our wild latenight world of the fog and the lights.

All good things must come to an end and that, apparently, goes for WIERD things too. The long-running Wednesday party, which currently happens at LES club Home Sweet Home, will be hosting their final four nights this month. The final four schedule February 6 is Wolf Eyes' Nate Young w/ DJs Miz Margo and Frankie Teardrop; February 13 is Frank Alpine live w/ DJs Pre Op Trans, Hi Fi Hillary and Frankie Teardrop; February 20 plays host to Genesis Breyer P-Orridge with Aaron Dilloway plus DJs Anearexia, Tesco Jane, Frankie Teardrop; and the final night on February 27 is with WIERD vets Xeno & Oaklander w/ DJs Jeralyn, Glenn, Frankie Teardrop.

Don't get too sad, though. WIERD may well host events in the future, and the record label will continue. Still, it's an end of an era (troll the archives here), so do try to make it out to one of these last Home Sweet Home nights, say goodbye and dance amid the fog and cracked glitterball one last time. Flyer for the final shows is below.
