This Friday, I am headed to Burlington, Vermont to reunite with our fine neighbors in the Mushpost crew. They are hosting Addison Groove (a.k.a. Headhunter) for an evening of fun bass music and rumored champagne from Super Soakers (let’s have at it!), in a brand new warehouse-turned-dance-studio venue space, called North End Studios. I personally don’t know anything about Burlington but I do know I’m more than game for a quick road trip to catch a live 808 set from Addison Groove.
I think so often we instinctually hit “No” on a Facebook event (or advocate for a “No-fucking-way” option) when we hear word that the event in question doesn’t take place in Albany. That’s just straight-up lazy and boring, now isn’t it? In fact, on the top of my party radar this month there are at least 3 events beyond Albany borders that I’d love to check out, including the two-year anniversary of TURRBOTAXÂ® down in Brooklyn at the Cove (with Blawan and Robert Hood!) If you have the means available to facilitate breaking your comfortable routine of frequenting Lark Street bars on the weekends, why the hell not? Don’t let your summer fly by without experiencing some out of town vibes, silly!!!
In all seriousness, DEEP ENDâ„¢ in Burlington is packing a solid line-up between the hosts and the headliner. So in conclusion, if a party or concert or film festival or whatever sounds interesting to you, don’t let a 3-hour trip discourage you. Just go.
