Tonight Bossa Nova Bushwick Party

I (The Horrorist) am DJing tonight at the Bossa Nova Civic Club in Bushwick (1271 Myrtle Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11221). I will be playing a mix of EBM, synthpop, coldwave, techno and just plain weird things. Other DJs tonight include John Fell Ryan, J Slusher, Derek Rush and Agressiva will perform live.

“Don’t expect to find any reclaimed-wood tables or cocktails served in Mason jars at this Bushwick hole-in-the-wall. Former rave promoter John Barclay opened this 1,900-square-foot club as an antidote to the rampant twee artisanalization of North Brooklyn. See, you don’t come to Bossa Nova to twist your mustache; you come here to drink and dance, though not in that unce-unce-unce megaclub kind of way. A tropically themed bar (think banana-leaf wallpaper and strategically placed pineapples) lubricates the young and festive with $6 drafts and $9 cocktails; there’s pumping techno and house-leaning jams via a stellar sound system.” –
