Cutting straight to the chase, we’ve got some quick news bytes for you — jump down for all our dancefloor recommendations for this weekend.

  • Happy 1st birthday to one of our fave newer clubs, Tilt! Many happy returns to Bossa Nova Civic Club, too — you don’t look even half of your five years, yet it’s hard to remember you not existing.
  • The Mister Sunday guys are finally opening the indoor part of their Nowadays venue this weekend, celebrating with three straight days of parties. (The “full opening” will be Thursday, 12/14.)
  • The Cape House basement (a.k.a. “96 Morgan”) finally has a name of its own: Meet Rose Gold, the newly renovated “lush neon-noir disco den & cocktail lounge.”
  • Moogfest announced its 2018 lineup this week, “led by female, transgender, and non-binary innovators designing the future,” such as Rayna Russom, Honey Dijon, Ellen Allien, Aurora Halal and Umfang. The announcement was followed by a 50-hour livestream; the festival is set for May 17-20, 2018 in Durham, NC.
  • Non-profit initiative Creative Footprint is hosting several “music expert meetups” around the City in an effort to gather data about NYC venues and conduct a cultural impact study of our music scene. Get involved by attending an event here and/or support their valiant efforts via Kickstarter.
  • Last but certainly not least, it’s time you started taking your NYE seriously. Lots of announcements have been thrown out over the last week or two, but WE hope to ring in ’18 with y’all at our 5th annual fiesta, which will be held at the super rad (and newly reopened) Secret Project Robot this time. We couldn’t be more stoked about the lineup: Maestro/legend Joakim (Tigersushi), longtime fixture in the Detroit music scene Sharif Laffrey (Discos Capablanca) and our resident Facets (Samo Records) in the main room, with queen of all things industrial/goth/’80s Andi (SYNTHICIDE) and Pittsburgh native/super producer Chase Smith (WT/Apartment) playing new wave, italo, freestyle, and more in the bar room. Drinks will be easy on the wallet, there’s a garden, and stellar vibes are guaranteed! $20 tickets are now on sale at Resident Advisor, but hurry before 2nd release disappears!
