It’s always sad to hear of impending venue closures like Brooklyn Bazaar, come to think of it we’re almost at the 5-year anniversary of Vice media ripping Death By Audio out of our still beating hearts (still not over it). Anyway, let’s try to be a bit more positive with these excellent shows…
Some parties transcend the tight confines of club walls and emerge the stuff of legend. Such is the case with Get Lost – a sanctuary for insanity, a place where music goers go to lose themselves and drown in beats. The mastermind behind these marathon parties is techno visionary and tastemaker Damian Lazarus. Get Lost […]
Welcome to October, folks. This is a 21+ maturity show, so if you call it spooky szn, please see yourself out. WHAT TO HEAR: This week is owned by Arizona death metal unit Gatecreeper, who return after a three-year vision quest with their sophomore full length (and long-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Sonoran Deprivation), Deserted (Relapse).
