If you’re still undecided of what to do for NYE + are tired of the overpriced, tightly packed clubs, with bottle service taking up too much room on the dance floor, I shamelessly plug Ladyfag & Seva Granik‘s SHADE: 2084 New Year’s Eve. Trust me, you will not be disappointed! I kept looking for my email invite everyday + nothing arrived until a few days after Turkey (ENTER huge sigh of relief!) – The thought of being elsewhere for NYE just seemed all kinds of wrong, with the existence of SHADE.
The music is always on point, the crowd is very diverse + love is all around you, as people are just dancing their worries away + probably on this night, their so-called resolutions they know they’re not going to keep, to their heart’s content. And I know this because my first dose of SHADE was over the Summer + the music was unreal, slipping out ‘shit’ + ‘fuck’, with every seamless transition from one mix to the next. And of course, like the tool that I sometimes am, I wore heeled sandals (don’t ask), not thinking I was going to dance for so long. My feet paid the price by being wrecked for a week + half, but SHADE was worth every blister. Then sealing the deal is the undisclosed warehouse location, that’s revealed after you RSVP.
And to get a feel for what’s awaiting you that night, here’s a video by Leo Herrera, where Ladyfag asks you:
ARE YOU A HOLOGRAM? ARE YOU TIRED OF BEING A HOLOGRAM?
