New Lost City is one night of refuge for you, the dreamer,
who desires a New York City as wild as it used to be. Lose
your inhibition in the dark and sultry speakeasy - lose your
religion with the lurid burlesque explosion - lose your
virginity to loin-shaking sound growing from 40's doowop to
infectious break-beats. This is everything we never
In the New Lost City we inhabit our myth...
A city of: Burlesque!
Gemini & Scorpio present seven feats of lost innocence
including: The brilliant blonde bombshell Julie Atlas Muz,
the fearless Amy G of the Daredevil Opera Company, the
bare-chested wrangler Angelo from the Bindlestiff Family
Cirkus, the saucy circus stylings of the Wau Wau Sisters,
and the scandalous Miss Tickle of the Bombshell Girls. All
hosted by Sxip Shirey of The Luminescent Orchestrii. The
Burlesque! begins at 9pm sharp, arrive early to see sights
guaranteed to whip your cream.
A city of: Bravura!
Loud, dancy and full-flavored live music begins at 10pm on
two separate floors featuring Gaijin A Go Go bringing a
deliciously danceable mix of 60's Japanese funk fantasy.
Sxip!Matta will astound you with human beat boxing,
industrial flutes, mutant harmonicas, regurgitated music
boxes and other bio-electro sonic marvels. And the Vintage
DJ is guaranteed to swing you with throwback doowop from the
30's, 40's and 50's.
A city of: Beats!
After midnight the music turns sticky evolving from classic
hip-hop to house to breaks as Camea [Clink / Clickhaus]
dishes sultry ass-mashing [read: tech-house ] rhythms with
live vocals by Rhiannon [The Shift / Subatomic Soundsystem],
and Alex Dirttt and Anthony Parasole [Halcyon / All City]
drop micro house and minimal beats. In the late night the
Blackkat crew bring tekno and fuzzpop on three decks by Jason
BK, minimal hard techno by Madaro and funky breaks by DJ Chrome.
All this builds into an intelligent techno crescendo from
the masters of after-hours Wolf & Lamb.
In the New Lost City everything comes easy...
