Three weeks ago, we invited back Colby B. to DJ our weekly Wednesday Good Times party at Eastern Bloc. We hadn't heard Colby DJ in a minute ("I went back to painting faces," aka make-up work, she told us in the booth) so we had her back for refresher on good ol' dance music.
I think Ericka and Nelson arrived right after a guest appearance on stage at Justin Bond's Joe's Pub gig around Valentine's Day. Or maybe just dressed like that for Good Times. You never know.
My favorite Long Island meatball, Anthony (right) and his handsome friend Jordan, starting the night off right.
Can they just come every Wednesday at 10pm and give me a private show like this? I'm serious.
Colby was giving me a Stevie Nicks vibe with Karen O. shoulders and truth be told, I couldn't keep my hands off.
When Michelle Visage says big hair, something like this should come to mind.
Bubi's art opening and subsequent after party had to be conveniently pushed back to a Wednesday due to a storm watch the Friday before, which was great for us because it meant Bubi (right) and Paul could after-party with us at Good Times all night long. And they did.
My incredibly talented jewelry designer neighbor, Mr. Christopher Habana, who is overdue for a daytime drop-by at the DONKEY studio (aka my apartment) where the music magic really happens. If you haven't ready done so, go check out DONKEY's first remix for the Carry Nation + Cucarachas' Warrior track over HERE.
Cheers to beers (and $1 vodka drinks from 11 - 1130pm, each and every Wednesday).
Denise and I used to work together at a bar on 2nd avenue, where I'd play her Tanya Stephens tracks all night and we'd dance to Big Pun. You can only imagine how Good Times turned out when she showed up. (Needless to say, we stayed till 4am when we finally had to leave. Reluctantly.)
San Francico's Raf (right) and his equally-as-sexy Danish boyfriend. They're making it work long distance too, and Copenhagen to San Francisco is a long-ass distance. (PS - I'll be in SF March 21 - 26th. Passover parties?)
BEHOLD! COLBY AND THE NEW DJ BOOTH WALL! We were closed last Wednesday because of renovations but we're stoked to be back tonight, March 6th for guest DJ Bill Coleman and a brand-new dance floor!
Long Island DJ sistes.
Her body language was saying no pictures but her awesome Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids ensemble was saying otherwise.
That time of the night when Blake shows up (right) and asks me to get into a deep and dark tech-house set, aka 3am.
Good Times! And the good times will get even better as the weather gets warmer, the sun sets later and guest DJ Bill Coleman pays us a visit to give us some new school and some old school. xo, Sparber
