Holy shit, just woke up about an hour ago, hahaha! I needed sleep sooooo bad.
My weekend kinda started on Wednesday, (Bar 13, drinks with a friend, then sully/underground on friday with its afterhours well into the afternoon) sleeping about 4 hours each morning, so I was a bit worn by NYE.
I left home at around 2 am and stopped by the Sweet & Low party to say hi to friends and have a drink before venturing into BK. Took me forever to get there by train since it was impossible to get a cab (and I had friends who were driving people around all night for extra cash, they were all super busy too). BlkMarket was AWESOME, but not before I had to go through some aggravation. Got there around 4 am. No order going into the space, everyone kept pushing and pushing trying to get through which was not happening cos the bouncer was pushing them back. I felt like I was going to faint, horrible. It was just too crowded and the coatcheck was full. Found a comfortable space on the side until the place cleared up a bit after 7. Stacey Pullen was great (like always, much better than last time I saw him) and Quenum was pretty badass (except for dropping "Doin' that thang"- that super ghey house track- in the middle of a techno set WTF??)
But then Konrad vs Alexi were on and they were just pure FIRE, was really looking forward to seeing them play together and they didn't disapppoint. Seemed everyone was there, ran into ppl I hadn't seen in a while and quite a few TAs (nice to meet you LAdazeNYnights! You left way too early...)
At around 11 am xpand3r and I left to go to Pier 94 to see VC; I wasn't planning on it but was easily convinced I have to say, the whole thing was quite impressive, HUGE production THOUSANDS of shirtless men everywhere, haha. It was as if every guido and every single gay man in the tristate area was there. Everyone was so respectful though, I haven't seen anything like that before, WOW. Victor was soooo good too. Kinda took me back to that DEMF set when he blew me away. They could've done better with the bathroom situation, omfg, that shit was NAAASTYYY Had an awesome time hanging out with xpand3r, Ay Star and Disturbed, you guys are just way too much, haha. Thanks for taking care of me, guys! You're the best
I danced into the new year the way I wanted to: with lots of techno and good people around me I hope this year is like that for me and for all of you!
PS. Ay Star, you need to stop harassing women at these parties. One of these days you're going to have your ass handed to you by a meathead.
