TARA MCPHERSON (NEW YORK)
Keeping up with the endless array of events and parties in NYC can be daunting. But one thing that will certainly draw a crowd (and personally light a fire to our asses) is art and tequila. So when we heard SPIN was hosting its exclusive Essential Artists party with 1800 Tequila, our RSVP's were in faster than an office clearing on Summer Friday.
Hosted at the very lofty Nejla in Soho, guests were welcomed with trays full of 1800 Tequila concoctions including margaritas, mojitos, and "Refrescas." Music of the evening included a special performance by SPIN’s July/August cover artist Wavves, with sets by Nick Catchdubs and J2K of Flosstradamus. Press also got a special sneak preview of the artwork before the crowds arrived.
