New Jersey’s multi-talented, international-touring artist UNiiQU3 is doing just that with her event BE UNIQUE.

Last night, my new friend Wiz showed me ‘Khalifa’

They say in your 20’s you’re not supposed to let anything or anyone hold you back. I had my first experience with that motto, when the person who got me access to Wiz Khalifa’s NYC listening party at 63 Gansevoort last night decided not to come. Being the (1) true Wiz fan that I am,…

One Last Shag Brings Back the Best of #HOTACTiON

If you’ve been tracking my steps, you might remember the last time I brought up the monthly party “Hot Action”. Created by dance-scene cultivator Josh Novicki and revamped by DJ and Scratch Academy instructor MARVELiTO, Hot Action aimed to gather the creatures of the night in a space that provided nothing but warmth, enthusiasm, and…

Bringing Williamsburg to Bushwick, HOT ACTION is back!

A few years ago, the “original hipsters”, along with any other kind of people you could find around Bedford Avenue in Williamsburg, New York, would migrate towards a club that unfortunately no longer exists. In particular, one specific monthly event was a stand out, bringing massive crowds out filled with people who were either ready…

Welcome to Webster Hall NYC’s House Party

All was well in my favorite area of NYC minus the few sprinkles that began to fall from the sky; the cool 45 degrees was a nice change considering the horrendous winter we’ve just endured. The comforting vibrations of the bass and warmth of the Marlin Room welcomed my jitters, as I made my way…

Craze, Codes and Kill the Noise wreck Music Hall of Williamsburg

T’was an early night in the heart of North Williamsburg, when all of the Brooklyn-goers got a special tasting of some Slow Roast served up by none other than Slow Roast Records label–distributed by A-Trak and Nick Catchdub’s Fools Gold Records–owners DJ Craze and Kill the Noise. As many already know the boss hogs behind Slow…

Laidback Luke & friends at Pacha NYC !

There comes a time in a girl’s life, when a good night out in the city is well-needed and deserved. This past Friday, I let my hair loose, threw my hands in the air and danced the night away at New York City nightclub, Pacha. What was originally supposed to be “Super You & Me…

Halloween 2013 Event Calendar

Normally, around this time of the month I’d go about my day like the average Joe, worrying about work, school, my writing, etc. This year is a little bit different. Now, I’m spending my time creating costumes from clothing I already have to successfully enjoy all of the events I will be attending this month in celebration…

Camp Bisco 2013 FULL Recap

I have prolonged this recap long enough (three weeks to be exact) for good reasoning. One being that I didn’t want to fully admit to myself that the best three days of my current existence are officially over, and two being I wanted to get Camp Bisco‘s recap videos and include them in my post. I’ll…
