Holiday party season is in full effect, and this weekend is jam-packed with ways to celebrate. Before we get into the best places to get down, a couple of quick announcements…
We’re back at The Graham (151 Meserole, Brooklyn — just off the Montrose L stop) this New Year’s Eve, and super excited about what we have in store for ya! Joining us this year will be some of NYC’s finest:
- Willie Burns ( L.I.E.S. / Creme Organization / The Trilogy Tape / WT Records)
- Tom Noble (Beats in Space / Clone / Future Times / Superior Elevation / House of Spirits)
- Soul 2 Seoul (Basement Floor)
- Dan Selzer (New York Endless / Golf Channel)
- Ex Ex Ex (Aurora Dreams)
- And, of course, our resident Facets!
More good news: 9 hours of dancefloor excellence doesn’t have to hurt your wallet. Pick up advance tickets at Resident Advisor for just $20, or if you’re one of those people who digs being spur of the moment, tickets at the door will be $30. (In addition to the included champagne toast, drinks average around $5-$6, so you won’t have to kick off ’15 with an empty bank account.) Let the countdown to 2015 begin, and hope to ring in the new year with you!
We also have an update on the situation at TBA Brooklyn, which unfortunately remains closed. A communication went out today to explain: “On the Saturday prior to Thanksgiving, TBA was subject to a multi-agency inspection by various New York City authorities and at the conclusion of the inspection, to our surprise, we were forced to immediately cease operations. Since then we have been working on multiple fronts to determine what exactly the requirements are to reopen and how we can satisfy those requirements. We have already begun this process, working with architects, contractors, expediters and lawyers, each of which cost money. We have learned that we will need multiple inspections and our expediters have been tirelessly working to get those inspections scheduled promptly but the timing and findings of these inspections remains largely out of our control. Until the authorities are completely satisfied and convey their sign-off across departments, we are not allowed to operate. Having zero revenue for going on 3 weeks has been a challenge. We are faced with many outstanding bills and are struggling to find a way to survive this crisis, and so we are turning to YOU to help us weather this storm and keep TBA alive.”
How can you help? For starters, TBA will be hosting at fundraiser next Thursday (12/18) at Good Room with 30+ artists and food from some of Brooklyn’s favorite eateries. If you can’t make it but want to help out, stay tuned for more on their online fundraising campaign. Show your support for one of Brooklyn’s true havens for music heads!
