The wild ride continued this week with continued fallout from Hurricane Sandy (including lots of amazing relief efforts by NYC’s music community in the form of food/supply drives, fundraisers, and volunteerism), transit snarls (also thanks to Sandy), a freak nor’easter snowstorm, and of course a nail-biter of a presidential election. With lots to celebrate this week (the G and the L are back up, Obama’s sticking around for awhile, power’s back on in most places, the snow has melted, the annual Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival — fondly known as BEMF — is back, etc.), we invite you to study the list below, then grab some friends and head out on the town this weekend for some good vibes and stellar dancefloor action.
As always, the events that get our most glowing recommendations are marked by **. (For the big picture, check out our calendar.)
