Flock To The Rock

The Deal: Open Bar at 12; $3 Bud, Bud Lite & PBR all nite.
The Place: Rock Star Bar
The Price: Free???
The Details: I don't know anything about this party but a bunch of jerky party kids I know RSVPd on Facebook so it must be decent. The booze prices are certainly satisfactory although this bar is famous for goons and cretins.

Swimming Cities Opening

The Deal: Open Bar 7-12
The Place: Gallery 151
The Price: $10 suggested donation
The Details: Swimming Cities is pretty much the only art shit I respect. These dudes build houses on rafts and fucking cruise the world in them. It's like Huck Finn but with crust punks and booze. But really, this shit is about as rad as it gets and they're stuffing food and booze down your gullet tonight so don't miss this. (Take me with you...please!!!)

Radio 1

The Deal: $3 Bud & $5 wells 12-1
The Place: Ace Of Clubs
The Price: $7-$10
The Details: Twig The Wonderkid is throwing this party at the surprisingly still existent Ace Of Clubs (Acme Underground). There's bands and DJs, including Andy Rourke of The Smiths (impressive).The bad news is the cheap booze is short lived but give Andy Rourke a hummer in the bathroom and he might share his bottle.

100% Juice

The Deal: Free Beer 9-10pm
The Place: Submerged Art
The Price: $10
The Details: Japanther and SHAPES are playing some spot in Jersey...yeah dude, I said Jersey! Don't worry, this joint is in Newark and it's 2 blocks from the train station so it's no more of a pain in the ass as going to Queens.

No Pulp Music Presents

The Deal: Vodka Open Bar 8-9pm
The Place: Crash Mansion

Honorable Mentions

We don't know exactly what the booze prices will be at these parties but it should be pretty cheap. They're all rad parties anyway so worst case scenario you get drunk at home and bring a flask along, which you were probably going to do anyway.

  • Soul Clap & Dance Off @ Glasslands (289 Kent, Brooklyn): It's $5 to get in but I think they have at least one $3 beer but it's been awhile since I've been to Glasslands. 
  • Chain & The Gang @ Secret Project Robot Basement (210 Kent, Brooklyn): Another Jonathan Toubin party and it should be good. SPR is a DIY venue so there's almost definitely cheap drinks. $10 cover
  • Nu Feelings @ House Of Yes (342 Maujer, Brooklyn): $10 cover. DIY venue all the way but not sure about drinks here. Parties here are always crazy as shit though so it's probably worth it.
  • Monster Party 2 @ Warehouse In Greenpoint (100 Sutton, Brooklyn): The cover is $15, which sucks but the party sounds totally awesome. It's another DIY spot so again, probably cheap ass booze but who knows. 
  • Electro Warehouse 2 @ Semi-Legit (6 Charles Place, Brooklyn): $8-$12 cover. Alex English, Distroy Allorchs and more partying in some random warehouse space. Again, booze prices are a mystery.

R/H US Debut Party

The Deal: Open Bar 6-8pm
The Place: Fat Baby
The Price: FREE?
The Details: R/H is making it's US debut! Wait, what's R/H? The comments on the event page are all in some foreign tongue. From what I can gather it seems to be of the Finno-Ugric language group. Convent is responsible for the night (if anything goes wrong).

New Dance City

The Deal: "Cheap bar"
The Place: The Schoolhouse
The Price: $10
The Details: We don't generally list events that have "cheap drinks" or similar specials because that can mean anything but this has weird written all over it and seems very flaskable. There's DJ sets, live sets, BYO-fashion show, art display, visuals and more. We're not sure what to expect but that's what we like about it.

RNR Love Letter
