Everyone likes a good party, especially when you have an excuse to dress up. And you know that there is always a party going down somewhere in New York City. After all, there is a reason why New York is called "the city that never sleeps." If it is in a warehouse in Brooklyn, a posh club in Manhattan, a high-end restaurant on the Lower East Side or someone's studio apartment, it's a given people will be partying all night into the day. But what is a New Yorker's favorite type of party?
Before Verboten opens its own dance venue in Brooklyn, the massive electronic music event company gave their audience a preview of what is to come with the 2013 StageONE Brooklyn Waterfront Series. After spending two of my summer days with some of the world's best DJs, I can confirm that Verboten surely knows how to throw one hell of a party. The first of the two shows took place on the Fourth of July, and those present to celebrate America's independence included Sasha, Guy Gerber, and a personal favorite of mine: Maya Jane Coles. The sun was shining down hard at over 90 degrees on a packed lot of concert-goers all day, but once Maya took over the decks at 5:30 there was no question that she was the number one source of heat in New York. From 5:30 to 7 she riled up the crowd with a great set featuring some music from her new album, Comfort, including the track 'Burning Bright' on which she teamed up with Kim Ann Foxman of Hercules and Love Affair.
