Fuck yeah, we’re in the home stretch! Our bags are packed and we’re heading home for some much-needed holiday chillness. We’ll be resting and gearing up for the mother of all nightlife, coming at us full-speed next week: NEW YEAR’S EVE. There are many amazing things going on, so we suggest narrowing it down from the following by considering: 1. The vibe you’re looking for (All night dancing? Upping the punx? Pseudo grownup?) and 2. Your price range (New Year’s shit can be so expensive, but there are also really, really fun less-expensive options if you know where to look.) Also, these things WILL sell out, so get your ticket, like uh, yesterday.
No matter what you end up doing: Be safe and have fun! We know there can be a revolting amount of hype around New Years, and although we don’t mean to perpetuate that with this list, we think there really is something special about celebrating another year of humanity’s existence. So gear up to celebrate (If you’re like “Oh yeah, I totally just want to sit in my apartment alone, like any other night. New Years sucks,” you’re lying/ wrong.) but just don’t stress out: surround yourself with good people and good music and the rest will definitely fall into place. Happy New Year, Brooklyn!
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.
