Wunmi and her drummers performing
For all you internet addicts, you all need to go to Korea
While here in NYC I went to my usual haunts such as the Soulgasm party on Wednesday followed by Cielo to hear Kevin Hedge and Louie Vega. Friday was a party at Brooklyn’s Langston Club with Rich Medina and an awesome live performance by singer/dancer/activist Wunmi. It was a nice surprise to run into Jamie 3:26 there (for some reason we always run into each other in this city), as he had just finished playing at a party in Jersey.
Saturday is of course the Shelter, my favorite House night ever! We stayed there from 5am till 2pm, and even ran into Wayne Williams by the DJ booth. The DJ of the night was the same as usual, annoying, playing with the EQ’s till your ears wanted to explode and trainwrecking like there’s no tomorrow. Since I was with two DJs going there for the first time, they could not believe how terrible he was and they were in awe at all the bad blends. I told them to just sit back and enjoy the experience, because that is what the Shelter is all about.
I’ve taken Vogueing, House and Gymnastics classes, bought tons of clothes and got to see good (and real) dancers at clubs again. None of that step-side-to-side-let’s-just-grind-and-act-sexy dance moves everyone always does. I love it here!
