I’m visiting NYC for about a week after NAMM. My partner is there for a work project so I figured it’s a good time to divert over to east coast for a bit. She’ll be working most days so I’ll have lots of time to myself to explore. I haven’t been there since about 2002 so I have no idea what’s cool / fun these days. Any suggestions? Also if anyone wants to hang out, I’d be up for grabbing a beverage during chatting about music or whatever.
I don’t know NYC but I do know https://www.ctrl-mod.com/ is located there. So there’s that. Probably a good opportunity to get hands on with a bunch of stuff that is not easy to get hands on with.
if i’m down during this time it’d be great to meet up (with @Galapagoose also) for some espresso-driven synth talk…
I live in Brooklyn, so I’d be down for whatever gathering of lines-folk ends up happening.
if you’re a fan of jazz and ping pong check out Fat Cat in the west village. incredible musicians and great laid back atmosphere. table games galore. true gem in downtown manhattan
That sounds cool, I will definitely check it out
I can vouch for control, it’s where I first discovered modular.
I definitely know about Control
Ok, NAMM is over, I’ll be flying to NYC tomorrow morning. Does anyone still want to meet up while I’m there?
I’ll also have a Eurorack case with me if anyone wants to check out any Intellijel modules, including the new ones.
In [North] Brooklyn [not far from ctrl] as well. Be down to hang should hangs hang.
Ctrl for sure. You might check Trans-Pecos or Silent Barn for some grungy DIY weirdness, or Issue Project Room or Roulette for heavy avant music in a more traditional concert setting. Also shows at the Kitchen, or the Expanded Cinema exhibit at the new Whitney Museum look amazing, too!
@kisielk if you decide to check out Trans-Pecos, some friends are putting on and playing this show on Friday http://www.thetranspecos.com/cal/2017/1/18/abstract-conditions-1-year-anniversary-w-dasychira-faltydl-xglare-ariadne-speak-onion-m1n0m0x
Should be a good time with a fairly diverse [mostly live] lineup [from ambient modular to techno to breakcore to whatever]
Cool. We’ll probably be heading to this show tomorrow night
I’ll be there as well, heading out shortly
Unfortunately we didn’t end up going. Too tired to stay up!
no worries! I ended up getting home around 8 am [sober too ] so I understand that’s not necessarily for everyone.
Sorry we didn’t get to link, it was a good time.
