Vaudeville Park Art Party

The Deal: Open Bar 7-8pm
The Place: Vaudeville Park
The Price: $5
The Details: My weirdo detector is going off right now, maybe that's a good thing. This is an opening party of some sort but there's DJs & "electronic musical wizardry." See, weird. After the open bar the booze is donation based, so I guess you can scumbag out and keep drinking free. But then you'd be a scumbag, ya scumbag.

Loft, House, DIY & Roof Parties (5 Of Them)

I've decided to skip the individual posts for these parties because I don't know the specific details in regards to booze for any of them. They're all DIY house party type of events that promise "cheap drinks" but that could be anything. Most likely though it means $2-3 beer and $3-5 wells. ALL parties are in Brooklyn.

  • Good Friends Electric (255 McKibbin St, Apt 10.), $3-5 cover: Party bands (Jangula, Rabbit Troupe & Life size Maps) playing a lot. BYOB cool? Maybe.
  • Lady Bree Presents (929 Broadway, Party Expo), $7 cover: Another show but this is at a proper DIY space. Caterpillars, Try Cry Try, Food Stamps & more. BYOB cool? Nope, "cheap drinks all night"
  • Another DIY Show (32D S. 1st St.), $10 cover: Light Asylum, Warm Ghost & more are playing this one. The $10 cover is steep but it's totally BYOB so overall it might make for the cheapest option. BYOB coo? Yeah, I just fucking said that. Pay attention.
  • Birthday Bash Loft Party (76 Rutledge St.), $5 cover: Fan-Tan, Dynasty Electric & a couple others are playing this one right in the heart of Hasidic Williamsburg. Don't worry, it's Friday night so they can't call the cops...or use any electronic devices. BYOB cool? Maybe, people bring shit to these parties and generally it's cool but they do have a bar so maybe buy a couple drinks even if you BYOB.
  • Let's Play House (Secret Location), $10 cover: Well, aren't we cool with our secret location party? You have to RSVP to get the address (RSVP@LPHNYC.com). No details aside from this. BYOB cool? No idea, I'm not even going to try and guess.

Tribute To KISS

The Deal: $2 Bud & Bud Lite before midnight; 2-4-1 drinks in KISS makeup
The Place: St. Jerome's
The Price: FREE
The Details: The crew over at "the clubhouse" are throwing their famous KISS tribute party. The booze at Jerome's is always cheap and the music is always loud. Go-go dancers, KISS makeovers and a bunch of people dressed like Gene Simmons are to be expected. It's like satanic dress up for morally compromised adults.

What's Crackin'?

The Place: Savalas
The Price: FREE
The Details: The homeys Roofeeo, Dirty Finger & Full Time Fun are throwing this here shindig. If they play hip-hop you're all getting thrown out into the street. And if you're part of a "certain crowd" stay in Jersey, where you belong. Got it? I said, GOT IT?

The Deal: $3 PBR all nite; 2-4-1 drinks 3-4am
The Place: The Studio
The Price: $5 w/ RSVP
The Details: Shit man, we list Trash every week and it's been going strong for like 6 years now. Have you really not been here yet? Guest DJ this week is Andie Cassette. Does Andy Cassette DJ with cassettes? That would be kinda amazing. Stupid, sure, but still amazing.

The Place: Happy Ending

The Details: Don't let the name fool you, everyone who attends this party has been to several Fashion Week events. Michael T (who is the special guest) even DJd a Fashion Party, so there. But it sure sounds cool to say, "fuck fashion."

Girl Trouble

The Deal: 2-4-1 Well drinks 10-12
The Place: Gallery Bar
The Price: FREE
The Details: DJ Jess of Trash and Danzie of Ruff Club join the Kids With Snakes and friends at "the saddest party in town." With this whole gothster scene in high gear, calling yourself "the saddest party in town" is less ironic quip and more brilliant marketing strategy. If you wanna cheer up head downstairs for Rando.

Hell Yeah!

The Deal: $3 Rolling Rock & Lion's Head; $3 Shots

The Price: FREE
The Details: A Tuesday night metal party at Greenpoint's coolest new bar. Melissa from Telepathe is DJing and there will be a special screening of "Heavy Metal Parking Lot"! In theory, this sounds awesome but it'll be pretty empty because hipsters are still coming to terms with their secret love of metal.

Beauty Massacre

The Deal: Open Bud Bar 12-12:30

Bushwick Block Party w/ Talib Kweli

The Deal: Don't know. Flask it.
The Place: Moore St, btwn White & Bogart
The Price: FREE
The Details: There is a beer sponsor but I'm guessing it'll be like $4 for a brew so you might want to bring along a flask. Otherwise this is a killer party! Talib Kweli, Team Robespierre, Electric Tickle Machine and bunch of other bands are playing. Plus they've got food from Roberta's, Brooklyn Grange and Jen N Outlaws Fish Fry Truck. Not fun yet? How about dodgeball, grind boxes (BMX & Skateboards) and bikini keg stand contest. 10am-9pm
