Club Etiquette Vol. 3
Whether it’s because of excessive boozing and very often drugging, lowered inhibitions or cover of night, maybe even social expectations or bro-on-bro insanity, the list goes on– people can act like total shitheads at shows, dance parties, clubs, and bars.
Anuradha Golder knows this. She’s been partying for “a while now,” she laughed. “And I always thought, how can I make this better? How can I make this experience more enjoyable for myself?” Her zine, Club Etiquette, aims to answer those questions. Issue No. 3, which dropped in October, looks specifically at sexual harassment. “I understood the zine was eventually going to comment on bigger issues, but it got there pretty quickly,” Anuradha explained.

You might be surprised to hear that, for a hefty sum by the standards of most mortals, you can actually pay someone (a Registered Nurse someone, not just anyone, mind you) to cure your hangover by stopping by your home, sticking a needle in your arm and dripping liquids into your veins until they’re positively brimming with vitamin and anti-oxidant goodness. Or maybe you’re already onto this game, maybe you’re a rich bank boy who can’t possibly take a day off from destroying the world for something as frivolous as a hangover. In that case, my sincerest apologies.

Last night musician and party messiah Andrew WK stopped into the Newsroom for a free-form discussion about sports, depression and, of course, partying. He also told us a bit about his forthcoming book, The Party Bible, describing it as “a handbook, a guidebook, a game book — it’s an offering and it’s not a story and that’s why it’s really hard to write, because I have to try to make it really good.” (Just how hard is it to write? Check out the trailer). Above, watch the full q&a — and below, read some select thoughts about channeling Joey Ramone, mourning Lou Reed and being himself for Halloween.

As you gear up for Halloween, who better to give you that pre-party pep talk than Andrew WK, the man whose e-mail sig reads “PARTY HARD FOREVER.” Tuesday at the Newsroom, the rocker behind such anthems as “Party Hard,” “Party Party Party” and “I Love New York City” will actually sit down (and not at a piano; he’s saving that for 45 Bleecker next month) long enough to speak to us about his recently announced book, The Party Bible, which promises to be “an unforgettable voyage in search of truth, wisdom, and party bliss.”
Rest assured, we’ll also ask about his other recent doings: channeling Joey Ramone with Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg and touring with Black Sabbath. And this is your chance to ask him anything before his Reddit AMA next month. Pro tip: ask him how a motivational speaker, Grammy-nominated record producer, and owner of Santos Party House became the face of Playtex “Fresh + Sexy” Wipes.
We’ll see you Tuesday at 7 p.m., at 155 Grand Street, off of Bedford Ave, in Williamsburg. As always, the event is free — just let us know you’re coming.
