NYC Britpop night Tiswas celebrating 20th anniversary this weekend w/ Dee Dee of DDGs, Josh Styles & more
Founded in 1995, Tiswas was the Britpop party in NYC for a long time, it's heyday probably the late-'90s/early-'00s period at Don Hill's. Tiswas stopped being a weekly party in the late '00s but has thrown the occasional event since, and will celebrate its 20th Anniversary this Sunday (10/11) at Bowery Electric. On board are Tiswas founder Nick Marc and regular spinners Justine D and Spiky Phil, plus emcee and hosts Michael T., Ultragrrrl, and Omri S. Quire, as well as guest sets from Dee Dee of Dum Dum Girls, Josh Styles, Alix Brown and a "surprise" live performance. (Sadly, Tiswas regular DJ Jess died earlier this year.) There will also be open bars (10:30 - 11 PM & 2:30 - 3 AM) and tickets are on sale now.
