In the grand scheme of DJing, there are certain DJs who pave the way for the rest of us. Victor Rodriguez is one of those DJs. He hails from Los Angeles, has been throwing parties for god knows how long and needless to say, has DJ skills and taste levels are beyond impeccable, which is why we were elated to welcome him back to our weekly Good Times party at Eastern Bloc last Wednesday for a classic Victor Rodriguez set.
Like a true professional, Victor showed up early and got all set up with his high tech gear so he could kick back and catch up with his legions of friends and fans before turning us out.
It seems like Mercury was in retrograde for eons according to Colby, who had terrible luck with both Hurricane Sandy and her pooch, who was injured just as the Hurricane hit. Things should be looking up for Ms. Bartrug quite soon though since she's still a fierce DJ and still ready to let NYC have it.
Me and the cuteness that is barman Rob, who is now toying with the idea of becoming a cop! (I can't even begin to talk about how many fantasies that would open up for me and every other person with a pulse, but then again, that was last week. This week, he's probably talking about living in the Australian bush).
Good Times, welcoming beards of all colors, shapes and sizes each and every Wednesday at Eastern Bloc.
Heartthrob coatchecker Marc is back and its a damn shame we didn't snap any other photos of him last Wednesday because he was showing VPL (visible panty line) through his sleeveless cut-off and those panties just happened to be a jockstrap.
Since last week's photo of Sam striking a diva pose behind the bar generated a slew of comments on photos, he figured he'd butch it up for his cameo in this week's photo roll.
Speaking of butching it up, why was everyone (including William, pictured here) posing like this last week? Not mad, just sayin'.
W. Jeremy (left, next to Sheki's priceless acid-wash hat) has so many tricks up his sleeve in the next few month, one of which includes a guest DJ set at Good Times on December 5th and another which includes a major 12-inch release on his record label, Warriors, produced and remixed by the most major men of women of nightlife. Stay tuned.
THE LEGENDS OF NIGHTLIFE. So honored to be in the presence of these three let alone have the privilege to DJ with each and every one of them.
Linger on, my pale blue-eyed friends.
Jersey in the house!
Frankie (pictured in prime pole position) is currently vying for a spot hosting a gay travel show and needs your youtube hits to propel him to the top of the competition. Go hear his sexy Jersey accent accent and help him snatch the prize: http://youtu.be/IUvvR1PczHY.http://youtu.be/IUvvR1PczHY
It's no coincidence that my sister Nita (left, with Eastern Bloc owner and Honcho cover boy Darren) named his latest and greatest production project The Carry Nation—this bitch can CARRY. Not only did he do after hours with us but he played us some of his upcoming productions and she is ON POINT. Look for an upcoming episode of Twerking Radio with this one real real soon.
Happy birthday Hakan! We love having you in New York and we never want you to go back to Istanbul. Ever.
Next time we wanna see those pits up close and personal.
The other half of the Carry Nation, DJ Will, showed face and support for his longtime friend and DJ mentor, Victor Rodriguez, who apparently turned Will on to a slew of disco records when Will was just a baby DJ back in the 90s. (the 1890s, that is.)
Good Times under red lights.
And then this happened.
Guess who's back from Berlin, head over heels in love and ready for some more production sessions with Sparber?
I don't exactly know how the party ended like this but I'll take it as a sign of a successful party, especially with all that debris on the ground.
Photographing the photographer! Thank you Victor and everyone who came out last Wednesday (and Friday for Jizz at Metro, which was WILD!). See you next week for Thanksgiving Eve aka biggest party night of the year, where DJ legend Ron Like Hell will be guesting with me and making you dance before your Turkey feast the following day. Come get stuffed. xx, Sparber
