Three like-minded disco duos link up for—what else—a disco party! The long-running Kaviar Disco Club’s Higgins and Beto Cravioto join forces with Discovery’s Free Magic and Faso, with guest DJs John Barera and Will Martin in tow at Brooklyn’s newest off-color bird: Black Flamingo (owned by fellow disco duo Soul Clap). With an intimate club downstairs, a lovely bar upstairs and delicious vegan grub. And all this for the price of, um, free.
The reliably experimental audio-visual party throws its hat into the NYE ring with Newworldaquarium, Young Male, Umfang, Ital & Aurora Halal and a special 2am live set from L.I.E.S. man Gunnar Haslam. As usual, expect the unexpected.
The top brass at Glitterballnyc.com must have forgone their holiday bonuses to put this local superstar bill together for their third annual East Williamsburg NYE celebration. Appearances from ‘90s rave vet The Horrorist (Things to Come), Alex from Queens (Capriccio), DJ Andi (Synthicide), resident DJ/man-about-town Facets and a super-special, super-secret super-guest. It’s really hard to go wrong for $20 though amirite?
Justin Carter and Eamon Harkin are back for the big holiday edition of their party devoted to the outer reaches of house, disco and techno. The guys are once again keeping it relatively simple—no big guests, just the residents themselves playing over a killer sound system—but on this overhyped night, we’d consider that a plus.
The Bell House
Resident DJs Ayres and Eleven, accompanied by Chances With Wolves and Prince Klassen, man the beats for the New Year’s Eve edition of their long-running party, which features a high-octane mix of hip-hop, house, soul and just about anything that’s got the funk. Complimentary champagne is available at the start of the midnight countdown.
