When people lament the passing of the “good old days” in New York City nightlife, the most common and valid concern is that the scene has become counterproductively exclusive. Today’s most creative DJ’s and tastemakers have been cornered into tiny lounges, hotel lobbies and gated venues with puny sound speakers no room for a dance floor. Santos, James Coppola (Full Time Friend) and Roxy Cottontail have devised the solution to this deficiency, bringing a big sound to an appropriately sizable venue. The aptly named NIGHT SCHOOL will instruct the masses on exactly what a party should be.

Headlining DJ Roxy Cottontail has long been the goddess of dance floor bangers and crafty promotion. Her prominent DJ career began in New York with the help of Justine D, and a year’s stint in Philly positioned her to help launch the careers of Diplo, Low Budget and Spankrock. As a vocalist her disco rap style has been featured by Larry Tee (in his “Let’s Make Nasty” club anthem), Armand Van Helden, Audioporno and more. But she is best known as one of New York’s canonical selectors, spinning beside the likes of DJ AM, Afrojack, Afrika Bambaataa, A-trak and more.

Opener Anton Glamb represents the Radical Outing posse dedicated to providing a fresh perspective towards urban culture that they sum up as “Totally original music. Totally original vibes.” Producer, remixer and MC and programmer, Glamb is a high output artist informed by the bizarre and obscure, framed within a DIY aesthetic. Also on the weekly bill is producer and DJ Brittiny “Bonnie Danger” Porter, understated turntable genius that lives to create forward-thinking playlists. Her refusal to overhype herself is compensated by her musical dexterity, making her the best kept secret in NYC’s nightlife, a true DJ’s DJ.

Hip-hop, electro, house, pop, rock and some unclassifiable sounds are on the menu. NIGHT SCHOOL is for those in the know when it comes to underground fun. As nightlife tycoon Steve Lewis puts it, “the DJ is number 1 an entertainer, but almost as importantly, an educator.”
