The headline should probably take care of all the logistics questions but let’s get down to business and discuss the details of this awesome freaking bash. It’s a party to celebrate summer, it’s called endless summer, I’m really bloody tired of parties ending with some promoter going on a mike all sad: “Hey, Ok, so this party is over until next summer, because well summer is kind of over.” Summer IS NOT OVER. (If these are your type of problems please be a dear and click this link and donate at least the price of a summer ale.)

The details start with the flier, which is designed to inconspicuously resemble a crumpled piece of school paper, because you know the promoters really want to hammer in the message that even when you go to school, you can still listen to rock and you can still roll on some tablets at a rave because, there will be raves in the future but everyone will try to score antibiotics instead of, you know…

Endless Summer Party

Boom. Flier, pretty awesome huh? Beer sponsor is the lovely Brooklyn Brewery, I hear there’s enough of that beer to last two endless summer parties, so, ya know, don’t take no for an answer on your beer order and enjoy it and thank Brooklyn Brewery and the people who bring it to you.

Starting from top to bottom of the flier, it’s basically being thrown by Lady Bree, who is also sometimes known as Bree and who used to DJ with her pal Harriet as Blonde on Blonde in various locales, such as Lit and all that (back in the heady days of pre-zombie chic). I just read an article in New York magazine about Harley and Cassie being the new New York Magazine Cafeteria DJs  and I thought, wait a second, this article is about Bree and Harriet, those two blondes, one with a straight up school girl British accent and a nasty predisposition to know all that’s new in Knife Crime island where music is actually made and the other with an Australian accent usually charming you before you even hear anything. So Bree graduated from that gig and became a booker for Don Pedro’s.

Don Pedro’s is apparently getting a pool installed in the basement for this show, do not be fooled, this is not my goal here, the basement of Don Pedro’s is one my very favorite places because it is seedy, like concrete and broken and not “nice and will include a complimentary glass of champagne”, I learned half of my Spanish down there in order to say: “Please I come in peace, let’s have a shot.”

Lady Bree is getting better and better at combining bands, that’s because that is what she does every single day, I think she had one day off this summer and she used that day to ride a motorcycle to McCarren park to find more freaking bands who can actually do something on stage, so she’s a talent scout of the 1500cc type.

Oh and yes, if you a lazy hacker type who just sits around watching live shows, you’re in such extreme luck, no need to set-up your own surveillance, this show will be broadcast live like Chat Roulette on NewTownRadio, but it’s more polite to show your wang* in person.

See ya there.

*Do not show your wang in person unless the situation is all wang showing approved, I mean seriously think with the most social brain cells you got when out in public.
