“The Deli’s 10th Anniversary w Drowners & Diane Birch at BK Bazaar, Glamdammit w Midnight Mob, Gotham Girls Roller Derby Triple Header, Fixed w Simian Mobile Disco and MORE”
Hello New York,
Before I start this week’s events I want to say RIP Jeffrey Tonnesen and give my condolences to his family. I met Jeffrey through a mutual friend, Justine D, many years back and although I never got a chance to become close friends, I have always respect his DJ work and contribution to our industry. Jeffery’s sudden passing was a shock to us all and a reminder that life is beautiful and fragile. Let’s all love each other and live life to the fullest. RIP Jeffrey Tonnesen.

If glam and rock ‘n roll is more your pace for Saturday, Twig the Wonderkid is back with his monthly Glamdammit party “Girls, Girls, Girls” edition with some of the top female fronted bands in NYC. Featuring live performances from Annie Activator, Midnight Mob and “Touch & Go” album release party for Briana Layon and the Boys. There will be a PBR open bar from 11PM – midnight and the admission is only $5! If you are broke but still want to rock, just RSVP here with us and we will get you in!
Lastly, The Deli Magazine (emerging music from your local scene) will be celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary this weekend at none other than the one and only, Brooklyn Night Bazaar. What better way to present you a fun free party with great vibes and tons of fun options. I was at BK Bazaar last week and they have added air hockey, pool tables, Jenga games, and a photo booth in addition to the miniature golf, arcades, and ping pong tables. Performing live on Friday is Drowners, Spires, Mainland, The Can’t Tells & Little Racer. On Saturday, The Deli will bring you Luluc, Secret Someones, The Prettiots, Poor Remy and the headliner Diane Birch. I met Diane Birch back in 2010 at the 6th Annual Paper Mag Night Life Awards when we were both the presenters for the Best NYC Club category. Diane was such a lovely girl and we had tons of fun on stage together. I am glad she is doing well with her music career and helping The Deli celebrate their 10th year. Go see all the bands for free this weekend!!
