This summer’s been lacking in super-fabulous events, so it’s high time that everyone wear their ridiculously overpriced clothes and head down to the Tribeca Grand to drink ridiculously overpriced drinks and look F-in’ cool while listening to music spun by super-fabulous local DJs. New York’s most recent import, Chicago DJ Tommie Sunshine, headlines the glam affair—he tells me he’ll be playing “whatever the f#*ck I want!” Also spinning are local luminaries Justine D (of Motherfucker fame), Eddie Newton (just plain infamous), Josh JDH, Max Pask, Joseph Quartana, and many more. The party is called Ours. You figure it out. Friday @ 9, Tribeca Grand, 2 Avenue of the Americas, 212-519-6600.
More summertime fun can be had at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum’s DJ Dance Party series. Starting in July, the early-evening events happen every Friday for a mere three hours. The DJs range from amateurs representing worlds outside of the music scene (like one of this week’s guests, Ward, the creative director of Bumble and Bumble, and designer Karim Rashid in mid-August), to pros like Neil Aline and David Hollands, the latter of whom spins this week. The events are free with admission to the museum. Friday @ the National Design Museum, 2 E 91st, 212-849-8380.
Those looking for a little left-of-center action might want to check out the Seasonal party, which combines improv beats with video artists. The event is being held way out in Brooklyn by the L train, and features John Hudak, Bruce Tovsky (video), Jason Talbot, Howard Stelzer, Jason Soliday, Brent Gutzeit, B. Owen, Carlos Giffoni, and more. The party has a decidedly experimental, interactive m.o., which means you can bring your chin scratcher for the festivities. Sunday @ 8, Office Ops, 57 Thames, seasonalbk.net.
