Best parties in NYC this month
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.
Glam-psych multi-instumentalist Ty Segall and fellow Bay Area songwriter White Fence—the jangly, Kinksesque project of Tim Presley—hit town behind their second collaborative album, Joy. A self-assured, wonky effort that bounds through 15 songs in just over a half hour, Joy is a whirlwind listen and a worthy successor to 2012's Hair. It will make excellent fodder for this live appearance in Brooklyn. Read our interview with Ty Segall.
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 along with DJs like Hannah Lou and Amber Valentine. Serve your look, but prepare to sweat your fake eyelashes right off.
The pioneering trip-hop outfit hits Radio City on its tour celebrating the 20th birthday of one of its defining achievements: 1998's Mezzanine. Highlights include accompaniment from Cocteau Twins’ member and "Teardrop" singer Liz Fraser, who is touring with the band for the first time since 2012, and a spanking new audiovisual production. This is no staid recital: Show up for a new rendition of an old favorite.
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.
Book lovers never go to bed alone. Prepare yourself for a night of good text at the immersive cabaret-and-reading series’ special St. Patrick's Day blowout. Enjoy private poetry readings over the course of the evening, along with aerial acts, burlesque stunts and big band-size live music.
Masquerade-based debauchery is pretty much House of Yes’s specialty, so bring your wildest look for this costume-mandatory rager. Expect plenty of go-go dancing, body painting and, of course, the hora.
