Best parties in NYC this month
Germany's Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary, better known as aural anarchists Modeselektor, perform their wide-ranging array of bass-heavy beats which are patently body-moving live. And make sure to listen to their most recent release, this year's Who Else, which features the group dropping their recent pop inclincations in favor of a return to their no-nonsense club techno roots.
Armed with deconstructed samples of jazz, blues, funk and gospel, Moodymann (a.k.a. Kenny Dixon Jr.) helped re-invent Detroit house and techno music in the ’90s with his own grimy spin on the genres. Hear the legend spin his Motor City magic as you decompress in Le Bain's infamous hot tub.
C'Mon Everybody welcomes the queer brethren of Bed-Stuy to dance and delight at its new afternoon jam, with music by DJ Sean McMahill.
Cornish beat mangler Aphex Twin made his name on being hard to follow, not just because of his artistic unpredictability but also due to his aggressively cryptic persona and preference for limited pressings of vinyl-only releases. This is his first NYC gig since the ’90s—and it’ll be a doozy.
We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to party with Horrorchata, Charlene and the other icons of Brooklyn drag at this low-priced monthly kiki. Count on hits from Janet Jackson and Britney Spears and outrageous performances from Bushwig's greatest hits. Serve your look, but prepare to sweat your fake eyelashes right off.
The ever-popular roller-disco party returns for another night of freewheeling fun at House of Yes. Show up in your flyest cape, hit the floor and show off those slick skate moves. Or, if you're like us, just try not to go ass over tea kettle in front of a cutie. If you don't have your own wheels, show up early; rental skates are first-come, first-served.
A member of Atlanta collective Awful Records, Tommy Genesis first gained recognition in 2015 collaborating with labelmates like Abra. Nowadays the Calvin Klein model and self-proclaimed “art-hoe” and “fetish rapper” is star in her own right, performing behind her duality-themed self-titled debut (see the sensual cover featuring her face-to-face with her own double).
