Output, Our Wicked Lady Announce Their Summer Rooftop Lineups

Ice cream weather is so close we can taste it (preferably at the new OddFellows) and with warmer temperatures come rooftop hangs. To that end, two of our favorite Brooklyn spots, Output and Our Wicked Lady, released their summer lineups today.

Output’s Saturday afternoon series will feature local house legends Louie Vega, Victor Calderone, David Morales and Danny Krivit, plus summer party fixtures Tiki Disco. The Sundays on the Roof series will include DJs and producers from all over the world, including Berlin’s Move D, Romania’s SIT, and Brooklyn’s own Ray Zuniga, proprietor of Touch of Class Records, and Lauren Ritter. The Friday Night Live series will kick off with a live performance by acid jazz legend Roy Ayers. You can scoop up tickets here, or just roll into one of the weekday sessions for free, from 5pm to 10pm. Check out the full rundown at the bottom of the page.

It’s been a long time coming for the three owners of Our Wicked Lady, Bushwick’s newest art and music studio space-cum-bar, but tonight they can finally kick back and celebrate the grand opening. Leading up to this sure-to-be-saucy affair is something you should probably get your butt to if you count yourself a Mac Demarco fan. See, there’s something called an Ass Pass…

Our Wicked Lady Hosts Free Rooftop Movies, Starting With The Goonies

Our Wicked Lady, the East Williamsburg bar/venue that described itself as a “playground for musicians” when it opened in 2015, is becoming even more of a playground this summer, with a rooftop movie series. It joins SummerScreen, Rooftop Cinema Club, and the Rooftop Films Summer Series in announcing its summer slate.

As you can see from the poster, the films include some musical masterpieces (Velvet Goldmine, Sid & Nancy, Moonwalker, Rock & Roll High School, Dirty Dancing), some childhood throwback fare (The Goonies, The Princess Bride, Labyrinth and classic Transformers), some more recent favorites (Donnie Darko, Fight Club, The 5th Element, The Fantastic Mr. Fox, True Romance, and Repo Man), and an obvious jab at Trump: Funny or Die’s spoof of The Art of the Deal, paired with Team America.

A Jazz-Fest Chat With Brian Newman, Who Got Matching Trumpet Tattoos With Lady Gaga

4-2

The man sitting next to me at the Black Penny in the French Quarter is very tall, pencil thin, in a black T-shirt and trousers with a skull-and-cross-bones belt buckle. He leans into his Vieux Carre cocktail with his tattoo sleeves propped on the bar, his pin-striped jacket hanging under it. In New Orleans, he could be anybody—a rocker, a random tourist, just a guy. But in barely 24 hours, he’ll be headlining Jazz Fest with a jazz legend and a pop superstar: Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga.

Wednesday March 15, 8 pm at Trans-Pecos: $10 

Another one of our own bit the dust– say it with me: RIP Shea Stadium. Now what? Get out there and keep supporting DIY venues across the city. And yes, that also goes for homegrown spots that just happen to be certified-legit, grown-up, and now pleasant after years of hard and risky work– never forget that these dudes are threatened by the looming, apparently totally arbitrary powers that be.

Our Big Fat Guide to Mardi Gras and Carnival in NYC

(Photo: Daniel Maurer)

Carnival has already been pretty wild this year, and it hasn’t even started in earnest. Down in New Orleans last week, the satirical Krewe du Vieux and Krewe Delusion processions brought plenty of raunchy anti-Trump floats and golden shower gags, as you can see from the photos and video sprinkled below. And not even those could top the Wild West-themed Trump float spotted at an Italian carnivale. But please, folks, let’s not let our jester-in-chief ruin what should be a glorious time of indulgence. Come Fat Tuesday, you should be fully focused on snagging free booze, southern grub, and freebies– that’s right, some local spots are prepared to throw more than just beads at you. Here’s who’s letting the good times roll this year.

Cobra Club Fires Its Bulleit After ‘First Lady of Bourbon’ Alleges Homophobia

Back in July, Hollis Bulleit, a brand ambassador for the bourbon business that her family started, announced on Facebook that her contract had not been renewed. Accusing her family of stiff-arming her and her partner Cher, the “First Lady of Bourbon” wrote, “After ten years of experience, one could conclude that no one knew what to do with a non-straight woman besides ignore me and reap the benefits of my relationships and sales.”

Cabaret Star Lady Rizo Has A ‘Sneaky Way to Fire Up Activism’
