Freewilliamsburg friend Russ Marshalek is throwing a party at Glasslands. (He’s part of the collective ADVENTURE[s], who brought you the popular Robyn Party.) Don’t miss the Myspace party this Friday at Glasslands:
[Russ] Marshalek and fellow soundtrack spinners Chris Choyce and Marley Magaziner originally wanted to create an event dedicated to the music of Myspace-era bands such as Dashboard Confessional, Saves The Day, and the Killers, but eventually decided to extend the bash to the whole website.
“One of the first genres we agreed upon was the pop-punk-screamo-emo genre,” said Marshalek, who lives in Greenpoint.
In that spirit, attendees can pre-request the songs that auto-played on their own Myspace pages back in the day.
Party-goers are encouraged to dress the part — think heavy eyeliner (for men and women), white belts, wrist sweatbands, and comically long bangs — and MySpace itself (yes, the site still exists) has donated some Ashton Kutcher-esque snap-back hats to be given away.
And for those who want to take the Myspace look beyond clothes and makeup, there will be a contest to see who can do the best “duck face.”
Grab tickets here.
