The PS1 Warm Up kicked off for the season in Long Island City this past weekend. You can see more of Scott Lynch’s photos in Bedford + Bowery’s Flickr pool. Meanwhile PS1’s VW Dome closed in Rockaway with a disco party. See B + B’s Instagram for that.
Former doormen Angelo Fabara (who it so happens was at the Dome party with us) and Thomas Onarato recall the glory days of downtown nightlife. “Everyone was in his/her persona, day or night,” says Fabara. “They didn’t go home and change into their nightclubbing outfit. These people were in it, all night long. In the East Village, they really were. You really saw a shift right at like ’98.” [Red Bull Music Academy]
