10 Great Ways To Spend The Solstice

Although most of us with hectic schedules might hear “The Longest Day of The Year” and cringe, the coming Summer Solstice is meant to be anything but a threat. In fact, Midsummer is referred to as The Longest Day because the span of time between sunrise and sunset on that day is greater than any other day on the calendar, and was significant to ancient cultures as the start of the summer season. In other words, the Solstice is a joyous time, meant to be celebrated!

After this seemingly never-ending winter, sun is something we can definitely use more of! So here are ten really awe-summer (That pun had to happen. Sorry.) ways to use all the extra NYC sunlight this June 21st.

Undersaturated Presents Launches Tonight!

Every day, some new talent strains to be noticed in the big city. Their dreams can now be helped along with the official launch of Undersaturated Presents, a new brand created by Planet Cognac and Mr. Bugsly Presents featuring highly-curated lineups of fresh electronic talent at a variety of venues throughout New York.

"The intention of the branding is to highlight the fact that the electronic music scene is over-saturated in the NYC market. Undersaturated will prove there’s still hope for freshly curated events to flourish. The implied irony lies in the fact that there’s still a relatively untapped demographic of music fans yearning to attend unique events featuring both established and up-and-coming artists in the ever-evolving electronic community."
