Show/Event Picks of the Week: 7.27.09
I’ll be updating you every Monday with stuff I recommend you check out in our fine city. Again, if you have a show or event you would like me to post here, please send me an e-mail with the flyer and/or details.
One of my fave local DJ’s, Melo-X, will be spinning at the Diesel store located at 54th St. & 5th Ave from 4-5pm. You can also tune in at http://www.dieselumusic.com.
Tonight, we celebrate the born days of 3 lovely ladies: King Texas and Miz Metro and Lena Lollipop! Head out to Sway (305 Spring St.), and fellas: please bring a lady for drama-less entry!
The Monthly Bondfire Showcase returns! The earlier you go, the less you pay… 308 Bowery bet. Houston & Bleeker.
Wednesday, we’ll be celebrating the 1st anniversary of two awesome events: HOMEBASE WEDNESDAYS AND LICK! I’m a resident Homebase partygoer, and attended the last LICK w/J*Davey and sexy dancers…Either way, you can’t lose! Homebase will be celebrating with a show @ SOBs (204 Varick St. @ West Houston) with performances by Colin Munroe, The Kickdrums, Diz Gibran, Nyle and Melo-X; after-party will of course be at bObs! 235 Eldridge St. bet. Houston & Stanton. NO COVER/NO DRESS CODE/NO STRESS! The LICK anniversary show will take place at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker St. bet. Thompson & Sullivan) and will feature a performance by Zoe Kravitz & Elevator Fight!
Get your after-party on at 105 Rivington, where Christian Rich and GLC will be hosting a special night of good music! I went to the last party Christian Rich hosted at Sutra, and I hear over 400 people showed up! RSVP to email@example.com.
For those who want to start the party early, I suggest heading over to Crotona Park in the Bronx. They’ve been having legendary DJ’s spin in the park all month…this week is DJ Scratch! (his date got changed from last week)
Another big night: Theophilus London returns to NYC in grand style, with a performance at Webster Hall as part of the Diesel: U: Music Tour alongside The Roots, Drake and Passion Pit. The show is free; the only catch is that you have to head to one of the 3 Diesel stores in the city to get tickets, and you need to be wearing Diesel tickets.
The same night, I invite you to check out a very special show, celebrating the birthday of the lovely TreZure the Empress! Head over to the Ha! Comedy Club at 8:30 pm to see her and her co-stars… 163 West 46th St. (bet. 6th & 7th Ave.)
Still going strong in its 6th year, The Freedom Party is always the place to be on Fridays!
