Weekend Womp Forecast (Lil Nemo Edition)

The snow can fuck with you. It can make you want to stay in. Even cool guys like Corey Booker will tell you to cancel your party. But just remember – you get out of a party what you put in to it. When the weather gets tought, the jams get tougher. The DJs will throw down somethin extra special. The people who made it out will get down even harder.

So despite the storm cancelling two headliners tonight (James T. Cotton and Kastle both had their flights cancelled), we still advise you to get out there and boogie. Tonight at OUTPUT there’s gonna be some killer house music from Kyle Hall and Jus Ed, amongst others – just make sure to dress warm and get there early since there will almost certainly be a line by 11. MUTUAL DREAMING lost their headliner, but they’re still reinforcing the sound and hanging a parachute from the ceilng, plus they’ve brought in 2 more DJs to fill out the bill, so if yr looking for some raw techno and live PAs, that’s the spot. And the RINSED showcase of the Symbols label is still happening even though label boss Kastle is grounded. You can rest assured that Druid Cloak, Figgy, and the Rinsed residents will step it up.

Everything is still on for Saturday as far as we know. Joe Goddard (of Hot Chip) will be DJing at Cameo Gallery (which is rapidly becoming one of our favorite venues). If you think this is just another guy from another indie band  deciding he’s a DJ, think again – Joe is a very talented house producer, and I hear his sets deliver. Head down to Chinatown for MeanRed’s semi-quarterly DARK DISCO bash, this time featuring heavyweights Martyn + Jacques Greene, plus the young genre blurring producer Morri$ and support from our favorite DJ duo in town, DKDS.  Drum n Bass heads already know that ICICLE is having his NY debut on saturday, but you gotta RSVP to find out where. 285 Kent has more techno for ya on Saturday, with mystery producer Rrose. And finally, Brooklyn Bowl has the always entertaining RJD2.
