Every year in the weeks before Christmas there’s a nervous hustle and bustle in the streets. People just seem a bit off kilter. The weather gets uncomfortably cold, annoying music plays in all the stores, and everyone starts to maniacally look forward to the holidays. Yep, it’s the holidaze, and when it strikes no one is safe. We all have that one coworker who got overly sauced at the holiday party…or maybe that was you. If it wasn’t, it’s time to get into the spirit of things; this weekend should provide many outlets for you to do some merrymaking. Now, off we go.
If you’re in New York, Yelle is playing tonight along side Housse de Racket at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. If that got you excited, tomorrow is a duesy. HARD has teamed up with Mouth Taped Shut to present the Bloody Beetroots, James Murphy, and PROXY for free with RSVP, but as you may have guessed all tickets are accounted for. If you weren’t on your A game this time, not to worry. I suggest you dig a little deeper into the underground scene. Our good friends at It Gets You Off will be throwing yet another private party this weekend at 190 Mercer St. All of the usual suspects from the IGYO crew will be playing, as well as Clockwork, and a “very special guest.” With so many artists passing through New York this weekend, it could be anyone.
For all you Los Angelites, Modestep & Jam3s K3nn3dy will be playing the Music Box tomorrow night, and up in the Bay, they’ll playing the Regency Ball Room this evening. Also, worth mentioning for tonight is the Snow Globe pre-party at 103 Harriet where Big Gigantic, Tokimonster, and others will be melting faces. It’s the weekend. Get some.
