Phra (Crookers) will be at Webster Hall on Friday, June 28th, and we were able to conduct a quick interview with him before his upcoming show with Fake Blood. 2013 has brought all sorts of new beginnings for Crookers, which was originally a duo consisting of Phra and Bot, who worked together from 2003-2012. If you haven’t yet seen Phra perform on his own, you definitely should attend his show. You have probably heard their track, Knobbers, or their remix of Kid Cudi’s ‘Day N’ Nite.’ If you want to hear more, listen to some of Crookers’ sets on Soundcloud.
As we’re all aware EDC NY hits this Friday, May 17th; but the party doesn’t stop there. Webster Hall, one of New York’s most historic and largest venues around will be welcoming Brillz, Sigma, Monsta, and special guest Alex English! This shall be wild and perfect while returning from heavy electro into moombahton, drum and bass, and the slight indie-feel they’ve imprinted on EDM.
Brillz is a trap and moombahton producer signed with Skrillex’ Owsla label with popular hits like "Acid Trippin" ft. Whiskey Pete. This hit was made a club favorite with Whiskey Pete’s trap stabs and addictive hook’s that meshed with Brillz trademark melodies. Brilliance.
If there was a perfect time for Atlas Genius to make its grand introduction to the States, it's now. The Australian band, made up of brothers Keith Jeffrey (vocalist/guitar) and Michael Jeffrey (dummer), will kick off their first-ever North American headlining tour. The run includes sold-out nights in Houston, Santa Barbara, Denver, Minneapolis, Cambridge, and NYC, where the Australian band takes center stage at The Bowery Ballroom on June 18th and 19th. Atlas Genius is also in high demand among the festival circuit. They will be performing at numerous festivals, including the Sasquatch!, Lollapalooza, the Firefly Music Festival, Summerfest, Edgefest, San Francisco's BFD, and San Diego's X-Fest.
The longest running nightclub on the planet, Webster Hall, has teamed up with Area Event, an NYC-based production company (who put together Swedish House Mafia's first ever NYC show in 2010) to bring a new Saturday night experience called 'brite nites.'
Webster and its crew have already established NYC’s legendary party with 'Girls & Boys' and 'brite nites' is sure to gain the same popularity in the downtown club space. It's set to be an interactive party experience aiming to bring the passionate dance music aficionados a combination of the biggest names in dance music alongside the stars of tomorrow. So dress bold and brite as you inspire yourself, and those around you, to release their inner ‘lite.’
The first ‘brite nites’ event will take place on Saturday, April 13th and features a showcase of artists representing Kindergarten Records—Popeska, Dallas K, and Charlie Darker. Upcoming ‘brite nites’ events include A-Trak on April 20th, Myon & Shane 54 on April 27th and Super Mash Bros on May 4th.
Donning sleeves of tattoos and wide ear gauges, T. Mills looks more likely to front a hardcore band than pack out clubs with his melodic hip-hop jams. However, the California MC is quickly rocketing to fame, thanks to his irreverent concoction of party rap and sugary, electronic pop. Supporting his July release Leaving Home, the artist also known as T. Million will ignite Webster Hall's basement when he hits The Studio on Wednesday, Oct 19.
Mills will be joined by like-minded party rappers T Wiz and Cody B. Ware. Expect a wild night of drinking and dancing, emceed by the guys who make a living singing about it.

From one of electronic music's biggest acts to a two-night affair with one of the most enduring outfits in alternative rock, there's no shortage of live entertainment to be found throughout October. Here are some marquee names and rising superstars that will be hitting the Big Apple's best venues in the coming months:
10/4 through 10/9 - Deadmau5 @ Roseland Ballroom
Love deadmau5? Well, here's your chance to see him six times in a row! The world-renowned electronic artist will make history when he brings his Meowsington Hax experience to Roseland Ballroom for nearly a full week. Named after his cat Professor Meowingtons, the Meowsington Hax show is a combination of arresting visual production and deadmau5's signature blend of original music and remixed classics. Judging by this clip from Lollapolooza, NYC fans are in for one heck of a sense-jarring treat. Though six consecutive nights of those flashy lights can't be good for your eyes...
For the many avenues of NYC nightlife, traveling down the under 21 block is as exciting as the nonexistent streets of the Upper West Side on a Monday night. Key word: nonexistent. While we couldn’t find you a plethora of night hits, we have found some solid choices for all you Joonbugs-in-training. The perfect end to your first date- some dancing, bowling or maybe a quick concert- any one of these are bound to have you, your friends, and your future boytoy partying the night away.
Webster Hall 19+
He may never have been to Scunthorpe, but he certainly brought it to New York on Friday night. Performing at Webster Hall, the charismatic British MC drew in the crowds with a successful set that included his hit singles 'Pass Out' and 'Written In The Stars,' both of which reached #1 in the UK charts.
There was a substantial array of British people padding out the audience, with Tinie Tempah's shout outs for East London receiving an overwhelming repsonse. The talented MC has already made a massive impact on the music scene across the Atlantic, winning the award for Best Breakthrough Artist at the BRITs, MOBOs and Digital Music Awards. Tinie also scooped titles for other awards, which included the BRIT for Best Song amongst even further nominations.
They've already got Girls & Boys and Neon Trees, but there's something ELSE going on at Webster Hall tonight! In the studio (aka TRASH!), DJ Jess and Alex Malfunction get the party started with electro, disco, newave and pop, with TRASH!y go go dancers, $4 PBR and whiskey shots, $5 vodka drinks and 2 for 1s at 3am!
Tonight's party is hosted by Twig the Wonderkid, a special late night cabaret by Marlo Marquise and Misty Meaner for DJ Jess' birthday, and FINALLY DJ Loli Lux will be doing a special guest DJ set and premiering her new music video! If house isn't your speed, head downstairs to TRASH! and get your dance on with all of NYC's rock and ravers.
19+, doors at 10PM, $5 with the flyer from DJJESSNYC.COM, $10 without.
One of my favorite longstanding parties (started in 2002), Girls & Boys, is at it again tonight at Webster Hall. Alex English and Rekles resident, with photos by The Culture of Me and Nicky Digital.
