From Madrid to Mumbai, cities around the globe are still buzzing in the wake of Armin van Buuren's A State of Trance 600 World Tour. Having touched down on ten of its twelve world-wide destinations, the expedition lowered the landing gear last week in preparation for its final two shows. In top form, they came fully equipped with all the makings to celebrate the 600th incarnation of Armin's famed A State of Trance Radio Show.
It’s only been a few days since WMC came to a close but for NYC we’re ready for another dose of music madness—this time with W&W at Madison Square Garden and Best Buy Theater! The Dutch duo is joining Armin van Buuren's March 30th ASOT 600 show at MSG and after will play their own (and biggest!) show at Best Buy Theater, which they managed to completely sell out! But no worries. W&W fans can check them out when they return for a string of dates at the end of April.
Brooklyn artist, Mike Perry’s recent endeavor, Wondering Around Watching (WAW) IS A 7k square foot creative wonderland nestled away amidst rows of former industrial spaces lining Dean St. in Crown Heights.
Conceived and designed by Perry, WAW doubles as both a free exhibition space and community free space for life-long art making. WAW is a revolutionary new concept in the way an art space interacts with the community. Eschewing a typical NYC gallery opening process Perry began with a concept that everything had to be community-oriented and free ...free entry, free refreshments, free classes, free workshops, free concerts, and all of it had to be available to people of all ages and abilities. After several months of preparation WAW opened on September 15th with over 500 people in attendance. Several successful community workshops followed the opening of the space and their second full exhibit titled Happy Accidents will be opening this Saturday, October 6th at 6pm.
Ten miles of darkness and 2000 cars separated us from the festival we had only dreamt about. As we stared forward, excited and anxious, there was a faint flicker towards the sky and then the familiar explosion of fireworks in the distance. A roar ripped through the desert from the cars around us. Indian chiefs and their topless girlfriends yelled and cheered out their windows, as packs of neon spattered fur boots ran by on foot. This was the scene I had heard so much about. The one that would save dance music events
This might just be the app we’ve all be waiting for. A glorified consignment online consignment store, Poshmark takes the concept of reselling your wardrobe overload and adapts it to this super stylish iPhone or iPad compatible platform. Postmark connects ‘stylemates’ who share similar style, so you can shop closets for items you’ll love and prices you’ll love even more. Post your own items for sale and put them to good use making cash for you rather than hanging idly in the closet. Also, log on for Poshmark’s virtual shopping parties where you can buy or sell in real time at themed (Bold Accessories, Designer Handbags, Party Dresses) flash sale events.
It’s like: eBay got a designer makeover
And finally, a scrumptious four-course prix fixe menu awaits you at Quattro Gastronomia Italiana just a short walk away. After an amuse-bouche of mini arancini with ham and porcini served with marinara, fresh wild mushrooms and truffle Robiola cheese crostini, sample antipasti like carpaccio di manzo with mustard dressing, lemon dressed mache, cherry tomatoes and Parmesan flakes. Do not fear, little monsters, for Quattro would never forget dessert! Guests can enjoy an assortment of seasonal inspired treats like pumpkin and pecan pies or their famous homemade classic tiramisu to satisfy their sweet tooth.
During the "Wendy Williams Show", the Queen of Soul said that Berry was her pick for the movie: "For the last four years, we’ve been talking about that and I have had a number of offers but unfortunately, they were not good offers. Now, we have something on the table. They have all of the financing on one project and the second project, he’s in the process of writing things for me to approve on the tele-film. Halle Berry is my pick for the older Aretha. There’s a young Aretha that has yet to be named.”
