Um, you may have noticed we skipped a week of YWSH (*hangs head*)… But never fear, we’re back with everything you need to heat up your weekend on some pretty excellent NYC dancefloors. First, we had a few things to tell you about…
- Did you know one of the best live electronic years of the past decade or so is coming to NYC (Irving Plaza, to be exact) next Tuesday (3/19)?? Yes, Booka Shade are coming back into town! And, even better: We’ve got a couple o’ pairs of tickets to give away! Just visit us on Twitter and RT one of our tweets about the show, or visit our Facebook page and comment on the related post. Simple! If you’re just not a social media-engaged kinda guy/gal, you can also buy tickets here.
- We were extremely stoked — then super bummed out — about the whole Rinsed thing last week. The short-lived event definitely exceeded all expectations (wow, that Morgan Geist set! the decor! the good vibes!) but unfortunately got cut short by “the man.” We’ll keep you posted about what’s coming up next from the Rinsed crew, but in case you missed it, here’s a good read from the collective’s Blacky II and Dan Wender we recently posted: http://www.glitterballnyc.com/2012-in-review-blacky-ii-dan-wender-rinsed/
- Also last week, we were fortunate enough to help co-host the very first Run Onn party by The Crystal Ark’s amazing Gavin Russom. Held every Thursday at The DL’s tropical rooftop, the event will feature a rotating and eclectic mix of the finest dance music heads around. Keep your eyes on our calendar for the upcoming lineups, and check out our recent Q&A with Gavin himself here: http://www.glitterballnyc.com/2012-in-review-gavin-russom-the-crystal-ark/
But we digress… Check out our top picks below (as always, the events that get our most glowing recommendations are marked by **), or visit the full calendar for the full list of what’s goin’ on. In the meantime, we’ll catch you on the dancefloor!
