The Bunker is one of the most respected names in New York nightlife. Started in 2003, The Bunker is a party for dance-music-lovers, by dance-music-lovers, and it happens about twice a month, usually at either Output or Trans-Pecos. This Saturday, The Bunker is hosting their 12th anniversary party at Output with DBX (Daniel Bell live), Rrose, Derek Plaslaiko, John Tejada, Harry & JPEG, Mike Servito, and more. (Also, lucky us, it’s free if you RSVP here! )We talked to founder Bryan Kasenic, who will also be playing the party on Saturday, about the evolution of the Bunker, thriving in a changing world and what we can expect next from this dance-music institution.

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!
