It’s your roundup of this weekend’s parties and shenanigans to ensure you never sleep ever. This weekend is going to be an especially good one because it is especially diverse! Tragically, Bossa Nova will be closed temporarily for construction, so you’ll notice a depressing absence in our roundups, but it will all be worth it if the backyard will finally be usable again when they reopen. Fingers crossed! No matter which party you pick on Friday (You should definitely do both if you can!), you’re going to be supporting a seriously powerful cause in addition to receiving an awesome dose of vibes. And on Saturday, a pack of Detroit legends at Output, including one of the most important and interesting names in techno, will hands-down be worth coughing up the cash for. Oh, and if you’re one of the blessed ones who are off Monday for MLK JR. Day, you definitely MUST take us up on the extra credit assignment we’re offering (5 AM- 2 PM after-hours party AKA the very spirit of Sleep When You’re Dead.) Or, uh, even if you do have to work Monday, you should still go. You’ll survive. (more…)
Well, we see you’ve survived the holidays, not to mention the first week back to work; that calls for some celebration. We’re not even really sure how we survived. (Side note: When your extended family asks what you “do for fun,” like, don’t even bother.) But somehow, we made it through, and now, we’re back to another good-ole fog-filled sleepless weekend in Brooklyn. Home is where the fog is, right? This weekend, we have the Long Count/ Minimal Wave behemoth party with techno royalty Silent Servant on Friday, then another big (well, not Silent Servant big, but decently large) secret-location party Saturday with another heavy dose of techno for your soul. Plus lots of other smaller stuff to keep you grooving/convulsing/dancing/whatever all weekend. Welcome home.
It’s your weekly roundup of parties and shenanigans to ensure you are completely unrested come Monday morning! But, lucky us, we can be even LESS rested than usual because, incase you missed it, Christmas is next week! I for one know I’ll be away hanging with family and doing lots of eating and, admittedly, sleeping (gasp! What else is there really to do in Ohio though?) so we need to get all of the party out of our systems STAT. “Doctor, proceed with the emergency party extraction surgery. I’m aware of the risks.” Have a safe weekend, a happy holiday, and see you freaks at New Years!
It’s your weekly roundup of parties and shenanigans to keep the dance going all weekend long! This week, there are a ton of awesome lady DJs in the mix which always makes me so stoked to see, but an especially nice little beacon of hope this week after Resident Advisor released a Top 20 Live Acts of 2014 with not a single woman on the list. Bullshit, but whatever. Brooklyn knows what’s up with the ladies. Also, we know right now, with the holidays looming, you might be a little tight on cash, and we’re definitely right there with ya, BUT it just so happens to be a week with a lot of free (the majority, actually) and cheap stuff going on, so that’s certainly no excuse to like, sleep or whatever you were thinking about doing instead.
