The best parties in NYC this week

Metamorph: Raica (live) + Antenes + Jad Atoui (live) + Pilgrim

Metamorph kicks off its immersive party series at the intimate Bossa Nova Civic Club with a lineup of top local and international musicians. Seattle's Raica present a live hardware set, drawing inspiration from such artists as Autechre and Aphex Twin to create brooding electronic sounds both melancholy and murky. Brooklyn resident and modular technician-musician Antenes also joins the lineup for a rare ambient DJ set. Featured in the documentary I Dream of Wires, Antenes uses self-built sequencers and synths in all of her tracks, creating one-of-a-kind unique sounds augmented in her curation of “acid-laced techno, shimmering electro and beyond.” Lebanese composer and experimentalist Jad Atoui plays a live set, with AJ Clay warming up the decks.

Deep Space

Does clubbing in the boutique-crammed Meatpacking district sound like a bougie nightmare? We hear ya. But don’t write off dance-music deity François K’s weekly Deep Space shindig at Cielo, which started more than a decade ago as a dub night and now covers all genres of underground dance music. The only thing it skips is a strict dress code. (Cielo’s, by the way is “an open mind.” Cute.)

Daedelus

Expect dreamy electronics galore from dapper Alfred "Daedelus" Darlington, the West Coast innovator whose style encompasses hip-hop, glitch, off-kilter pop and electronic psychedelia in equal measure. Here, he brings his improvisatory, lightup LED-controller live setup to the MoMA's Rockefeller Sculpture Garden for its Summer Thursdays series.

House of Yas Dollhouse Party

Create your own Barbie World at this party from the insane minds of House of Yes. While dance music blasts courtesy of Lauren Flax, Mike Swells and more and blow up dolls jump around the dancefloor, you can get your sensitive areas bejeweled, try your hand at the Gender F*ck Stripper Pole or play around in the sex toy pop up shop. If you never felt like your childhood dolls represented you, now's your chance to make plastic fantastic.

Nosaj Thing + Gerry Read + Lee Bannon + Holodec

LA beatsmith Nosaj Thing, who seems to have remixed everyone from Drake to Radiohead to Daedelus, makes sinister, glitchy, instrumental hip-hop that's as indebted to Warren G as it is to Flying Lotus. Also on this Timetable Records bill is labelmate Gerry Read, whose outsider-house cuts are generally flavored with heavy dollops of lo-fi grit.

Now Thing: Bake + Neuroshima + Nathan Harrington

New party collective Now Thing makes a solid debut by teaming up with Glasgow-based label All Caps. Founder Bake has been building the label's reputation steadily since it surfaced in 2011, releasing eight excellent EPs that range from Alex Coulton's tech-house 12" to Neuroshima's breakbeat-laced Rave Archive EP. Bake also holds a monthly Thursday-night Rinse FM residency. He shares the bill with the elusive Neuroshima, joined by local musical tastemaker Nathan Harrington.

Those in the know know this list is mostly childs play - the real parties can't be found here you gotta dig deeper friends. Use your imagination the underground is thriving - nyc 's still got it if you can get it.
