Get a glimpse of new Queens techno venue Basement with this gritty show from outré electronic series Quo Vadis. In an underground scene overflowing with techno and house music, NYC native Veronica Vasicka is a key component in delivering old-school synth wave to the city's club spaces. Vasicka founded Minimal Wave Records in 2005, a one-of-a-kind label dedicated to rare reissues and new vinyl pressings (via sub label Cititrax), reflecting her passion for old new-wave of the late '70s and early '80s.
