Every Saturday night, DJ Mister X hosts Corrosion, a night of "the darker '80s and beyond" at Luke & Leroy's. At tomorrow night's event, I'll have the privilege of spinning the opening set from 10 p.m. until 11:30 or so.
Dying to hear that '80s synthpop song you can't hear anywhere else? Come request it while I'm DJing, and I just might make your every '80s dream come true. There's no cover, a big dance floor, an upscale lounge and, from what I'm told, sexy people.
Corrosion started up in early last year on Tuesday nights. Soon after the Saturday night MisShapes shenanigans moved from Luke & Leroy's to Don Hill's, the Corrosion party moved from Tuesdays to Saturdays. Saturday is the new Saturday!
My set will be mostly '80s with a couple new things thrown in. Mister X takes the party through the night with new wave, synthpop, electro, industrial, indie, and more. This week's party is also a Duran Duran tribute night, so expect to hear plenty from the law firm of LeBon, Rhodes, Taylor, Taylor & Taylor. And just as a head's up, next week's party on March 18 will feature a Depeche Mode tribute as well as a release party for the new Yeah Yeah Yeahs CD.
In other NYC party news, the March edition of Neat Neat Neat at Manitoba's went great. Thanks to Pat Pierson for an inspired guest DJ set and to Yep Roc Records for providing vinyl and other goodies that were lapped up by appreciative partygoers. The next Neat^3 will be Wednesday, April 5 at Manitoba's. More details soon...
