Best New York E-Mail Usage New York 2002 - FREAKY-PARTY UPDATES
Remember when you needed friends to hear about good parties? No more, since the emergence of a bevy of FREAKY-PARTY UPDATES that inform thousands of hipsters each week how to support the local fringe culture. The populist Flavorpill (flavorpill.net) balances the underground and downtown with a mix of zippy music, art, and theater listings, spreading the word to 25,000 readers a week in its sleek, stylish interface. E-group NY Happenings (groups.yahoo.com/group/nyhappenings) is more listings-oriented and has its ear closest to the street, maintaining an adamantly local music focus with a tilt toward all things punk-disco, garage, and new wave. Isn't this why they invented the Internet in the first place?
