Weekend Pick: Jonathan Peters Birthday Bash at Pacha NYC


Playing the classic club hits you crave, Jonathan Peters is in the building this Saturday, and you know he be allll night. This former Sound Factory Saturday night resident knows a thing or two about fierce beats and how to breathe life back into tired New Yorkers so you best be prepared to party.

Pacha is known for serving up Ibiza realness, so put on your party dress, strap on some heels, come thirsty, and get ready to celebrate the birthday of Jonathan Peters. Tickets are $25, but if you put your name on the guestlist you can get in for cheap before midnight. A dollar saved on admission is a dollar added to the alcohol fund, which is always a fair trade in our book. Do yourself a favor and add your name to the list before you get sucked back into the Internet black hole that you came from.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Feeling Inspired: Roee and Yael Carmel Chat With Joonbug.com About the Evolution of the I Feel Experience

Founded and produced by Roee and Yael Carmel of Carmel Productions, the I Feel Experience was conceived with the notion to offer artistic New Yorker’s an outlet for expression, creativity, and dance-- a place where they could go to immerse themselves in a world free of judgment. For you see, for those that attend these gatherings, I Feel is not just a party—it’s an escape into a world filled with love, brotherhood, and above all, acceptance. I Feel applauds the individual, celebrates their unique gifts, and champions their artistic mind. I Feel is a community where we can at last truly feel free.Back in 2012, creative, uninhibited New Yorker’s seeking to join a community of like minded individuals came together at an intimate venue in the East Village each Friday to emerge themselves in a gathering of self-expression and dance. The beginning of what would soon evolve into one New York City’s most beloved underground parties, these Friday night celebrations were referred to as “I Feel Friday.”
