Where We’ll Be
Told you it was loaded. Tonight we will be at the Irving Plaza for The Hood Internet (outstanding name.) Thursday is the toss up to end all toss ups. Alex Kenji, Miss Jennifer, M83, Treasure Fingers (free show at one of the most exclusive venues in the city,) Above & Beyond (ditto, but not free) and Eddie Halliwell (free!) Take your pick. Kenji didn’t disappoint when we saw him last winter. But, nevertheless, decisions, decisions. Friday we will be at Webster Hall for The Crystal Method. Saturday afternoon we will be at the legendary Circo Loco party. These parties are huge in Ibiza and now they are making their way state-side. Saturday night we will be checking out dBerrie. Don’t forget to enter our contest. Free booze! Side note: Steve Lawler is going to be quite busy this weekend. Deep tech, anyone?
