Get your dubstep on at Webster Hall tonight for a buck before midnight and soak in the DJ sets of Nero, Hellfire, and Roommate in the massive Grand Ballroom. All three shell out some crazy beats, most of those being spun tonight likely being more upbeat and dance-worthy than some of their slower tracks. It's only a single buck with RSVP before midnight, but just in case you're not familiar with the artists, you can take a listen to any one or all of the artists on their MySpace pages (Nero, Hellfire, Roommate) before you go. It's only 19 to get in (with ID), but 21 to drink. Doors open at 10 pm.
One of my favorite longstanding parties (started in 2002), Girls & Boys, is at it again tonight at Webster Hall. Alex English and Rekles resident, with photos by The Culture of Me and Nicky Digital.
This week, Glass Candy, Chromatics, Desire, and Simonetti will perform, and as always, it's one of the few 19+ parties in NYC. Doors are at 10pm, and if you RSVP at Going.com, entry is just $5 before midnight.
Check out Girls & Boys on Facebook to stay up to date with all of their parties (bringing in anyone from Chromeo, Major Lazer, Disko Dali, and the Bloody Beetroots) plus get reduced, and often free entry!
Alex English is a known veteran in NYC nightlife music culture. Among the sea of new DJs attempting to make a name for themselves with a pair of headphones and an iTunes Library, English prefers to spin with only vinyl and CDs. He has proved himself alongside acts like A-Trak, Boys Noize, Crookers, Steve Aoki, The Bloody Beetroots, Justice, MSTRKRFT, Deadmau5 and Chromeo, and more, and has played in almost every major city from the waterfront in Brooklyn, to SXSW, and most recently, in Japan. You can catch him every Friday at Webster Hall for the GBH “Girls and Boys” party, NYC's newest party "Juicebox" at Stay Lounge, and other events throughout the city. Rest assured, if you see Alex English’s name on a party flyer, it’s bound to be a great night.
