Last week was the first of a two-part finale for our weekly Wednesday Good Times party at Eastern Bloc. And since disco, Donna Summer and Michael T. have all been integral parts to our little party that could, what better way to say sayonara than with one more Last Dance with Michael T.
Lots of friends who couldn't come to our closing party on June 26th showed face at last week's Good Times, including my favorite gummy sour peach fiend Jorge (left) and the most bi-continental man we've ever met, Martyn (right).
Our little Lumix point-and-shoot camera has really weathered some injuries over the years (including a two-month stint in Brooklyn when Kelvin left it in someone's car) but is still somehow going with a magical new melting cyborg setting, as seen on Jorge and Martyn.
Alon (left) is back in a New York state of mind after a brief stint in Israel, while Andre (center) is still masterminding a way to make his twerking videos go viral and Denise is still making that same Madonna Die Another Day request SIX YEARS LATER. Love you guys!
Cyborg twerk team.
Eastern Bloc neighbor and sometimes coatchecker John rolled through to pay his respects while perpetrating one of DJ Lina's major shirts. We can't wait to see (and sport) a new one this season.
Cyborg John (and Lina).
Back in years one two and three of Good Times, Frank (right) and Patrick were part of the core Good Times team who always got extra giddy when we did a 90s throwback night a la Courtney Love or managed to sneak a Tori Amos remix into our set. So nice to see them again and reminisce about the Good Times good times.
So totally cyborg Patrick and Frank.
Shout out to our Canadian brother Scooter for not only having us up to Toronto to DJ his Cub Camp party on July 12th but for bringing his party back to New York City (and Eastern Bloc) for pride weekend. Get it gurl.
Melting the night away with Scott.
So glad its summer again because Scott (left) has come out of hiding and will even be joining me up in Provincetown when I DJ Fagbash on August 14th. For all my future DJ dates, check out twerking.com, my site where I try to keep things updated as often as possible.
There's only one thing we love more than a Brazilian and that's a Brazilian couple, which is why we were thrilled when Jefferson (left) introduced us to his boyfriend Bruno (right). Hoping to see more of these two and set up some parties down in Sao Paulo in January / February. Stay tuned.
Ryan, Charles and Buddy (from left). Not the best photo of my wifee Steph Stone (aka Charles) but Ryan urged me to keep it since he's looking real cute in this one.
Michael T. arrived right on time and started doing shows right on time as well.
My DONKEY DJ and production partner Mikey Fuentes (left) is doing a solo set at last final Good Times on June 26th starting at 10pm before we take to the decks as DONKEY around midnight and my own solo closing set. Don't miss this rising star.
One-time host and perennial Good Times guest Quinn wouldn't miss a Last Dance with Michael T. for the world, though truth be told, Michael and I have already started talking about our Endless Donna Summer party for 2014 because we love doing the Donna party.
DOSHA DEVASTATION IN THE HOUSE! (And after a performance the night before to boot.)
EAST VILLAGE LEGENDS.
So much love for these two, who have both taught more than I ever could have asked for about DJing, nightlife and rock 'n' roll.
Even cyborg Jon Jon (left) came out to say farewell! Thank you again to Michael T. and everyone who came out and danced with us ever. Get into the last Good Times hurrah next Wednesday, June 26th, when we say sayonara for now and party till we get on the plane for San Francisco Thursday morning. xo Sparber
