best underground culture resource (2008)


When you first stepped off the boat, did you harbor fantasies about NYC's legendary Factory-like party scene complete with nihilists, nymphs, and nudists in massive industrial spaces with freaky art installations? Thanks to JEFF STARK, an ex-Salon. com editor with a healthy eye for the absurd, the cultural, and the Dada, you can. His weekly "Nonsense New York" e-mail is an essential guide to where the subterranean wild things roam, touting events like the Dale Earnhardt slot-car races and the deranged Condiment War.
