Webster Weekend 1.31 2.1 PREVIEW: DJ Green Lantern 1/31 & Marcus Schossow 2/1 @ Webster Hall

If you are still trying to iron out your weekend plans, look no further than Webster Hall! This weekend, Webster has an eclectic lineup featuring multiple genres that will resonate with a wide array of fans.

Kicking off the weekend tonight, DJ Green Lantern, supported by opening act Branchez, returns to his hometown to throw down his trappy beats. Initially not intending to become a DJ, Green Lantern found crowds attracting to him like a magnet. Influenced by Nas, Enimnem and Jay-Z, DJ Green Lantern blends hip-hop and EDM effortlessly. Get yo’ trap on!

Headlining Webster’s Saturday Night ‘Bright Nites’ this weekend is our favorite ginger, Marcus Schossow. Known for his progressive melodies, the Swedish-born star will leave you feeling euphoric once he is through. Local-talent Visonaire will warm up the Bright Nites crowd that evening.

Tickets for both nights are still available; make sure to purchase tickets beforehand to avoid long lines at the door!

Friday, 1/31 (DJ Green Lantern): Tickets
Saturday, 2/1 (Marcus Schossow): Tickets

Kap Slap at Webster Hall 11-15-13

kapslap Kap Slap at Webster Hall 11 15 13
Kap Slap is a new breed of DJ, born of the internet, on the internet and he made his bones through download numbers not record sales. He’s not (yet) known for any original productions, but his bootlegs have garnered him a lot of attention including his capitalizing-on-the-moment (of 2012) mashup of SHM’s “Greyhound” and Canadian pop sensation Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”. Recently he’s stayed a little more inside the boundaries of the dance music scene releasing a bootleg pack in honor of hitting 100K likes on Facebook throwing together songs by Sander van Doorn, Ellie Goulding and Kaskade. Though he still keeps his irreverent sense of humor and style with a song featuring some of the vocals from one hit wonder Fountains of Wayne and their iconic “Stacy’s Mom”.

Kap Slap, nee Jared Lucas is a young guy fresh out of college and beginning to hit bigger spots as he tours around the country, you can see a picture of him and a friend enjoying some adult beverages before a show at SMU here. Joining him this Friday at Webster Hall is LA-based duo Mako who have one of the more unique origin stories in the scene considering one half of the team is a Juilliard trained trained classical musician. There’s going to be lot of musical influences and helluva lot more talent in the room this Friday as Alex English and friends notch another night in their books of being the best Friday night party in the City. You can cop your tickets here.

P.S. We hear Kap Slap is pretty good at Super Smash Brothers on Nintendo 64 and we want to issue an open challenge to him, his terms, his stakes, his rules. We happen to have a Smash Brothers expert in our corner.

New Zealand dubstep duo Mt Eden are riding on the recent success of their second EP, ‘Walking On Air’ and adjusting to producing under one of the biggest labels in EDM, Ultra Records. This month, they’ve been selected as MTV Iggy’s Artist To Watch. Past up-and-coming artists who have been featured on the video series include Flux Pavilion and Skream.

MTV Iggy filmed the duo live at Webster Hall performing the single ‘Airwalker’ off their EP. Their performance is captivating and interactive, with Mt Eden choosing to DJ from a raised platform in the center of the main room, rather than on the usual stage. Live string musicians and singer Diva Ice performed their parts from the stage as the crowd gathered around Mt Eden to enjoy a unique lighting spectacle.

The Wall is a brand new venue livening up the often nightlife-dead Midtown area.

Just a block away from Penn Station, The Wall is operated by the same seasoned pros who run Webster Hall and features “three floors of mystery, music, and debauchery.” We’re heading over there on Saturday night for funky tech house master Funkagenda and Girls & Boys resident DJ Alex English to see what all the fuss is about. By the looks of things, it’s going to be a wild night. The Wall encourages us to “experience the other side” and we’re definitely looking forward to it.

Saturday night at Webster Hall is going to be big, with Henrix plus Dzeko & Torres taking the stage for a wild night of brite nites debauchery. Expect a crowd of colorfully-clad young people filling the expansive rooms of Webster. brite nites is a unique party in New York, featuring dancers, fire spinners, aerial acrobatics and all types of lively entertainment.

Henrix hails from Miami, one of the hottest destinations for electronic music right now and home of Ultra Music Festival. His track ‘Jumangee’ has been featured by Tiesto on his Club Life podcast. His sexy beats and dub drops will be right at home on the Webster stage. Also check out his collaboration with GTA and Digital Lab, ‘Hit It!’ which boasts a reggaeton beat with electro roots.

REVIEW: Paper Diamond, Mt Eden & Candyland @ Webster Hall 6.8

By Steffi (@steffi_mauro) on June 11th 2013

Webster 6.8.13 SM 13 REVIEW: Paper Diamond, Mt Eden & Candyland @ Webster Hall 6.8

After a very wet and muddy first day of the Governor’s Ball Music Festival, we were happy to see a sunny and warm Saturday. But what we were really waiting for was the sun to set so we could head over to Webster Hall for the official after party. A line was already outside the club before the doors even opened, and as soon as they did festival-goers and clubbers alike wandered into the cavernous rooms of Webster. The brite nites party had begun.

More after the jump.
