Weekend Pick: 20vum with Josh Wink, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs and M A N I K at Verboten

Ovum Records is celebrating 20 years by putting their artists on stages all across America and Verboten in Brooklyn is about to host a 2ovum party featuring Josh Wink, M A N I K and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs!

Josh Wink, a DJ that has been around longer than most, started out in Philly in the 80's playing sets as a kid. He is mostly known for hits like "Higher States" and "Horizontal Dancing". M A N I K on the other hand is a new and emerging artist hailing from NYC and is also Ovum record artist. His influences range from J Dilla to The Dirty Projectors and everything in between. The added bonus for the night comes in the form of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs or TEED, a young UK artist who has been breaking out onto the electro-pop-disco scene. TEED was named Fuse's top 30 artists to see at SXSW in 2013 and he has also done remixes to popular songs by Disclosure and Banks.

Verboten Grand Opening This Weekend

Verboten translates to “forbidden” in German, but the opening of a new club of the same name in Williamsburg is by no means as restrictive as the name would suggest. It is in fact, the exact opposite. It's like the Garden of Eden, a paradise full of everything you could ever want from a nightlife, music, and arts venue, and nothing is off limits. This Friday and Saturday, March 14th and 15th, Verboten hosts the grand opening of its purpose-built venue and invites you to come try some of forbidden food and drinks, you won't regret it.

Verboten NYC Takes Over Labor Day Weekend
Labor Day weekend is, of course, one of the best times of the year. Barbecues over a nice three-day weekend help us wind down the last bits of summer while the weather is still warm, and we can get our last fix of summer ales before those oh so delicious cinnamon-rimmed pumpkin beers take over. Amid all these celebrations come end of summer parties, and Verboten NYC is not only throwing some of the hottest parties in New York City right now, but they know how to kick it up a notch when the time is right.
