OMG. OMG. OMG. Open up your phone, RN. Your weather app. Do it. I know. I KNOW. It’s going to be in the 70s this weekend. I can barely contain my excitement! Goodbye SAD Lamp! Ciao coat check! Sayonara scarf! Au revoir heat tech everything! The seasons are finally changing, which means your social schedule is about to get a lot more active. Grab your calendar and start getting strategic, because there are so many shows and so little time. How will you celebrate the return to sunshine? We’ve got a few ideas in this week’s Club Crush picks.
1.) Barclay Crenshaw @ Elsewhere (Friday, April 13th) – Think you know Claude Vonstroke? Think again. He’s traded in his catchy moniker and upbeat brand of acid house for something that speaks to the man behind the Dirtybird regime. Expect smoother tastes of hip-hop and r&b when everyone’s favorite party animal performs under his given name, Barclay Crenshaw. He’ll be keeping the main room nice and nasty for ya, with a little help from KLL SMTH, Anna Morgan, and more. Get tickets HERE.
2.) Dr. Fresch @ Output (Friday, April 13th) – Do you suffer from seasonal affective disorder? Then is weekend is just what the doctor ordered. Enjoy a leisurely brunch in the warm spring sun, catch an afternoon nap and get ready to tear the roof off of Output when Good Looks Collective Presents: The Prescription. Featuring LA-based producer Dr. Fresch, expect a house-fueled remedy that will have you swinging back toward happy in no time. Warning: Side effects may include sore dancer’s feet, costly bar tabs, regrettable phone number exchanges and morning after BEC consumption. Whatever. WORTH IT. Get tickets HERE.
3.) Paul Van Dyk @ Schimanski NYC (Saturday, April 14th) – It’s not often we see a trance legend come through Schimanski NYC, but this booking in particular is super special. Just two years ago, it was hard to tell if Paul Van Dyk would ever perform again. While performing at A State of Trance Festival in February 2015, Paul Van Dyk accidentally fell from his stage. He landed 20 feet below and suffered spine and brain injuries as a result. During his miraculous recovery, he had to relearn basic skills like walking, eating and talking. At the same time, he also began plugging away at a new album, appropriately titled From Then On. The autobiographical work features track titles such as Touched By Heaven, I Am Alive and While You Were Gone. Join the German producer this Saturday when he pays tribute to life and its many mysteries. Get tickets HERE.
4.) The Cityfox Experience @ Avant Gardner (Saturday, April 14th) – Cityfox is back with another lineup full of house and techno’s biggest names. Since it’s not quite summer yet, they’ll be keeping things cozy within the Brooklyn Mirage‘s massive indoor space, Avant Gardner. Catch Âme (DJ Set), Tiga and 19-year-old German prodigy, Tim Engelhardt at this seasonal kick-off that’s sure to set the tone for Cityfox’s unbeatable summer soirees. Get tickets HERE.
5.) Solarplexia @ Analog BK (Saturday, April 14th) – Solarplexia is the highest form of happiness on Earth. Cash in on some of that good ju-ju when the New York based party makers bring dark techno producer Norman Nodge, to one of Brooklyn’s best clubs, along with House of Yes resident DJ Mira Fahrenheit and many more.
