The best parties: Critics’ picks
Prurient + Andy Stott + Sannhet
Past live shows by noise-scene bad boy Dominick "Prurient" Fernow have often featured him leather-clad and screaming his lungs out amid a howling din of feedback. Recent recordings have taken a dancier, more synth-heavy direction, though, so there's no telling what's on tap for this gig, which celebrates a new album, Frozen Niagara Falls. The dark and brooding music of Andy Stott and local prog-metal crew Sannhet set the stage.
The First Residents Ball: Anthony Parasole + Layton Giordani + DJ Three + Nikola Baytala
Output hosts its first Residents Ball, with New York's finest names in electronic music. Anthony Parasole (Output, the Corner, Ostgut Ton)—who also happens to be a resident at one of the world's greatest techno clubs, Berlin's Berghain—headlines in the main room with young fellow New Yorker Layton Giordani. DJ Three and Halcyon's Nikola Baytala play the Panther Room. Oh, and did we mention this party is free before midnight if you R.S.V.P.? No excuses.
Hometown heroes Mister Saturday Night (Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin) have released a mix CD, founded a label, played Beats in Space and toured the world. Now they blend the seasons of their parties for another Sunday Funday daytime dance jam at Shea Stadium spinning their array of underground house, disco and techno rhythms for your dancing pleasure.
