House Party

The Deal: BYOB and/or cheap booze
The Place: 440 Broadway
The Price: FREE
The Details: This just came through the wire, some kind of house party in an art space on Broadway in Brooklyn. Wild Yaks, who played Union Pool earlier, will be playing but I have no idea who else is on the bill. It's probably BYOB but who knows.

Nervous Breakdown

The Deal: $3 Atomic Lagers
The Place: Legion
The Price: FREE
The Details: The Bushwick boys (Rev. McFly, Matt K & Max 57) bring the ruckus to Legion tonight. Nothing but hardcore and punk from the DJ decks all night. Whiskey up, dust off your knuckles and get bloody to some Black Flag, Minor Threat, Bad Brains, Flipper, Fear and all that good shit. Live performance in the back by Unstoppable Death Machines.

The Deal: $1 Vodka Drinks 7:30-8:30pm; $5 Beer+shot combos all night
The Place: Cameo
The Price: $8
The Details: An $8 cover sucks goat balls but if you get there bright and early for the $1 vodka drinks it's totally worth it. Surprisingly, I've actually heard of some of these bands (SHAPES being the best of the lot) so maybe it won't suck.

Spoons, Toons & Booze

The Deal: $3 cans, free cereal 12-2pm 
The Place: Knitting Factory
The Price: FREE
The Details: Party like it's 1985, ie. roll out of bed, make yourself some cereal and watch cartoons. The only difference is we're boozing up the milk (White Russians) and you're encouraged to eat the sugary stuff (rot those chompers!). The cartoon selection includes Duck Tales, Thundercats, Gummi Bears, He-Man, Transformers and other classics. Fuck brunch, eat cereal.

The Place: The Studio
The Price: $5 w/ RSVP trash@djjessnyc.com

Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell

The Deal: Free booze 7-10pm
The Place: Mishka
The Price: FREE
The Details: The Mishka store is having some sort of art gallery thing by this dude COOP. The flyer looks pretty awesome so if everything else is on par it should be cool. There will be all types of ruffians and miscreants so there's gotta be free/cheap booze around.

Nite Of Dance

The Deal: Cheap Booze...not sure what
The Place: Shea Stadium
The Price: $5
The Details: The So So Bros are DJing a late night set at home (ie. Shea Stadium. Yup, they live there) with DJ Mark Kamins (danceteria), Patrick Stickles (Titus Andronicus) and DJ Magician/Tone Tone (Pitchfork). Sure, it would be way more rad if So So Glos and Titus were actually playing but this should still be good times. Not sure what the booze situation is but it's a DIY venue so it'll be no more then $3 per brew and if it is sneak something in.

Des Roar

The Deal: Free Drinks, probably PBR and some liquor, 8-11pm
The Place: Varvatos Store
The Price: FREE, must RSVP jv_pr3@vfc.com
The Details: Some band called Des Roar (never heard of 'em) is playing the Varvatos Store (ie. old CBGB). I've been to these parties before and even if the bands suck they sure don't skimp on the booze. You will stumble, maybe even crawl, out and puke on the Bowery. Yes, it's like that.

The Deal: Free or cheap booze of some sort 5-10pm
The Place: RFCT Gallery
The Price: FREE
The Details: The 57 crew and friends gathered up all their album covers, graffiti, doodles and what-not for an art gallery. These kids party hard so I can't imagine there's not a ton of booze at the opening reception. Should be good times.

Bushwick Rooftop Festival

The Deal: Cheap booze & BYOB (discreet)
The Place: 2 Locations, check the flyer.
The Price: FREE
The Details: 24 hours of live music on a roof in Brooklyn! All types of awesome bands including Darlings, Gunfight, Shadowbox and more. I don't know exactly what a drink will cost but this shit is DYI so it can't be more then $3 for a brew. Plus I'm sure it'll be pretty lax as far as BYOB goes.
