Tired of getting your wrist stamped at the same ol’ boring clubs? Check out these parties in some very far-out locales.
Rock the Pulaski Benefit Concert
Sept. 20th from 6 p.m. to midnight at the Broadway Stages Boatyard, 437 McGuinness Boulevard, Brooklyn; entry $5
The Brooklyn Blowhards, Semi Femme, and Twin Wave are among the bands that will be jamming atop shipping containers alongside Newtown Creek — which, in this instance, Justin La Mort of the North Brooklyn Boat Club describes as a “superfun(d) site.” He promises the fun(d)raiser for the boat club will involve “grilled delights, cold beer, and joyous dancing.”
Really Hot House Party
Sept 27 at 10 p.m. at the Russian & Turkish Baths, 268 E 10th St., nr. First Ave.; tickets $50
They aren’t kidding with the name: this throwdown at the Russian & Turkish Baths is sure to be a sizzler. Undress to impress, because you’ll have your run of the steam room, sauna, and an open vodka-and-beer bar. Sounds like a lethal combo, but hey, you can finally film that ice-bucket challenge video while the DJ Paolo Stagnaro lays down “deep groovy jams” and The Adversary does a live set.
Power Play: Steampunk and the Transit System
Oct 2, 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the New York Transit Museum, corner of Boerum Place and Schermerhorn Street, Brooklyn; tickets $35
If you missed the nostalgia train to the Rockaways, this is another fun excuse to visit the NY Transit Museum. Atlas Obscura, known for turning industrial wastelands into party spots, will be serving up “Victorian-inspired libations” in the decommissioned subway station while Amour Obscur belts out the gypsy punk. As if the Transit Museum’s collection of trains and trinkets wasn’t fascinating enough, the Museum of Interesting Things will be showing off antiques and inventions from its traveling collection. Period attire is encouraged, so bring those welding goggles.
