There’s another incredible weekend of dancing and relaxation ahead of us here. I’ve said it before and i’ll emphasize it again, lineups keep getting stronger and more enticing. Having dinner with a friend the other night brought into the conversation that it really is hard to stay indoors on a weekend lately. What with events like the rare performance of Magic Mountain High (Move D and Juju & Jordash!) and Fred P taking place at Output or the techno GODFATHER, Juan Atkins playing in Cameo Gallery’s intimate space, there’s too much to do and so much to see. Check out the five club nights featured below, where I’ve also included Disco and House heavy hitters Tornado Wallace and Detroit Swindle for a guaranteed good time on your day off.
Good News! The weekend is so close and I can feel the freedom calling. The partying doesn’t stop with this second end of the work week in May. With Cameo Gallery setting things off right tomorrow with Hot Creation’s PBR Streetgang, you can dance straight until Sunday when Mister Saturday Night opens the Gowanus Grove to the warm weather. The five events selected below are truly a testament to the top notch assortment of artists NYC venues have begun to showcase to the masses. If this weekend stands as the start of quality day and nightlife to come this summer, one can only be glad to be here in the city and nowhere else!
This week has been devastating for our country. Thankfully as New Yorkers, times of tragedy only make us stronger and more resilient. These circumstances shouldn’t keep you from the pursuit of happiness, including a night out on the town, and what a great weekend to begin doing so. As temperatures are finally reaching into the 70s again, it’s time to enjoy a lazy day outside before heading to various joints around the boroughs. As always, I’ve picked out a few gems below that are sure to entice you.
We’re halfway into April and Brooklyn is already experiencing the craziness of springtime weather. With heat waves giving rise to thunderstorms, it’s a guessing game as to what to wear out. But have no fear, for this weekend holds several events worth staying indoors for the entire duration. Whether it’s the bouncy left field techno of Night Slug‘s Egyptrixx, Gerd from Clone Records or the Godfather of Hip Hop himself, Afrika Bambaataa there’s options galore.
Aputumpu Music Festival 2013 is almost here! If you thought the 2012 Festival was outstandingly packed with great bands, too much dancing and too many new people from all over NYC to meet — well, you are in for a treat!

Anther weekend is upon us and as March is winding down, the sun is staying out longer, prompting for late night drinking and eventual dancing revelry. Friday and Saturday have loads of events to take part in and there are a few below that might just be up your ally. Whether it’s the futuristic dancehall sounds of DJ/Rupture or the low-end musings of South London Ordnance, it’s a much more futuristic and forward thinking weekend for electronic music. So don’t skip out, here are four nights out of the bunch that are highly recommended…
March is upon us and I’ve already felt a tad warmer this morning hoping that spring was here. Alas, Brooklyn is still cold as hell at nighttime, and yes you’ve still got to check that pesky coat wherever your going. However, this weekend is shaping up to be a good one. With an eclectic array of events this friday and saturday, theres enough to get down to, ranging from minimal techno to wild and crazy disco.
Tomorrow is THE big day for all you lovebirds. If you haven’t made plans yet, consider this me helping you save face. So buy those presale tickets and tell your sweetie that you had the night under control the whole time. This thursday there are many goings-on to choose from, but I’ve got the cream of the crop right here. Whether your going for Cameo Gallery’s sensual “Rated R Valentine’s Day” with Lemonade, or Le Poisson Rouge’s “Kiss of Life” with Teengirl Fantasy and Laurel Halo, there’s a musical niche for every couple (or couple soon to be…).

I can’t think of a more unique idea for a party than that of nightlife innovator, Phillip Beretta‘s Night Spa. These near weekly Monday evening spa parties are held in Clinton Hill’s Body by Brooklyn. Consisting of a main dance floor for DJs with a full service bar and a separate area with three saunas, a jacuzzi, and cold tub; there’s plenty to keep you busy. Tonight’s includes DJ sets from Todo Incluido (Delorean / Lemonade DJ Supergroup) and LF Wind (Teengirl Fantasy). Starting time is at 9PM, so grab a reservation! (see after the jump). 275 Park Ave. Brooklyn, NY 11205
Searching for a nightlife event this weekend seemed like a pretty easy task once I had all of the listings right in front. Whether it was combing through Resident Advisor, hordes of Facebook events or from word of mouth, it really came down to the various goings-on this friday over the bulk of saturday. Starting with the bass exploits of Addison Groove, veering off to Fabric (UK)-resident Daniel Avery and even a late night cap at Le Bain with Joakim, there’s plenty to do within a single night.
Anthony Williams began his career under the much more bass-heavy, dubstep guise of Headhunter. This project took off in 2007 with several successful releases on the influential Tempa label. Suddenly in 2010, Mr. Williams released one of the most influential bass music tracks Footcrab under his new Addison Groove moniker. This track began to get regular play within the dance music community including techno and house music DJs such as Ricardo Villalobos. For this special one night only, Anthony will be joined by Ninja Tune’s FaltyDL who has recently released the fantastic Hardcourage LP. Max Pearl of the smart-as-hell Cluster Mag warms up the night with tracks rich in rhythmic history, soul and integrity. The whole thing goes down at Williamsburg’s Cameo Gallery exactly at midnight.
