I’ve heard quite a few friends say that they are “boycotting” Fourth of July this year. That orange-faced assclown will have most of us second guessing our lackluster patriotism as we drink shitty domestic beer and dine on nitrate-laced meats this weekend. At least the “holiday” falls on a boring old Tuesday this time around the sun. That means you don’t even have to dedicate this weekend’s partying to ‘Merica or freedom, or whatever the fuck it is we keep telling ourselves.
For just a minute, let’s put our differences to the side and do something Trump would most likely hate – hit a club show! Whether it’s breakbeats or techno you’re after, you’ll uncover the city’s best upcoming parties in this week’s Club Crush. We encourage you to go all out this weekend. After all, it’s a free country (for now, anyway).
SAVOY (DJ Set) @ Output (Thursday, June 29th) – For being one of the neighborhood’s own, we rarely see SAVOY on local lineups. With a sound that’s as palatable for rock lovers as it is for rave kids, SAVOY has impressed festival and club crowds alike with their unique live/electronic hybrid shows. On Thursday, the trio brings a very special DJ set to Output’s main room, with Dali and Alex English on board to get the party started. Get tickets HERE.
FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE feat. Midnight Magic @ The Roof (Friday, June 30th) – Crew Love and friends are keeping things lively on Output’s summer-ready rooftop this Friday when Midnight Magic (LIVE), Jimpster and A-Rock take the stage. The $10 cover will give you plenty of room to splurge on some boozy slushies to go along with their new Pretty Southern-curated menu featuring grilled pineapple skewers, crispy chicken sandwiches and more perfectly seasonal nom noms. Get tickets HERE.
Black Frames @ The Graham (Saturday, July 1st) – If you’re on the hunt for good grub, cheap drinks and an intimate disco-inspired dance party, The Graham is delivering on all accounts this Saturday when Black Frames makes a Brooklyn pit stop on his Nearsighted Tour with support from local DJ/producer, Remnique. Get tickets HERE.
Amtrac @ Good Room BK (Sunday, July 2nd) – Caleb Cornett is more than just a DJ. Since 2008, this electronic music visionary has wowed us with his impeccable skills as a songwriter, producer and vocalist. Hot off the release of his new album, Homebound, this house favorite is bringing the new digs straight to Good Room BK. Get tickets HERE.
MORE HYTE NYC @ Governors Island (Sunday, July 2nd) – International party brand HYTE returns to New York City this Sunday for a pre-Fourth of July celebration that’s sure to be more explosive than any fireworks you picked up at some whack stand in north Jersey (are fireworks legal in Jersey? I don’t even know). After a stellar two-day installment at the Brooklyn Hanger in 2016, HYTE is bringing a stacked lineup of techno titans including Chris Liebing, Richie Hawtin, Maceoplex, Maya Jane Coles, Loco Dice, Julia Gover and more to the new venue on Governors Island. This outdoor extravaganza is likely to extend your two-day weekend into an accidentally awesome four-day celebration. Get tickets HERE.
