I hope you’ve got your AC running, because this week is HOT! It’s hot outside. It’s hot in your poorly ventilated, ancient apartment building. And perhaps most importantly, this column is hot because we’ve got some truly steamy shows hitting the Big Apple this weekend. Oh yes, oh yes! This week’s Club Crush will have […]
Who says you need to purchase overpriced tickets and commute to Governor’s Island to see a great festival?
As the likes of Governor’s Ball and Northside Festival shed weight and consequence—their focus shifting toward fun, sun, and more sponsor-sponsored coconut water than your bladder can humanly handle—an interesting (and essential) counterpoint has begun to emerge.
While Memorial Day is supposed to officially signal the start of summer, there’s nothing like the Northside Festival that really makes it feel like the season is here; it may just be our favourite part of the year.

Just coming off Elements Arts & Music Festival, I’m now officially primed for the sweet ass summer that lies ahead. After spending three magical days in Lakewood, PA with the BangOn!NYC crew, I’ve been reminded of what a wonderful part of the world in which we choose to party. Not only do we have amazing […]
