Summer will be over before you know it, so hop on as many boat parties as you can, especially ones that have Danny Krivit playing for the whole ride. The 718 SESSIONS takes the party from Deep to a cruiser and does a swoop around the island. Just don’t get too excited from dancing to all that deep house and throw yourself overboard. – Sunday @ 7, Circle Line Cruises, Pier 83, 42nd & West Side Hwy, 212.978.8869,

Larry Tee has assembled a super team of super-freaks for his new party, called appropriately DISGRACELAND. He’s working in conjuction with the folks from BACK DOOR BAMBY and GBH to bring you extra-special events like this one, featuring four “little people” dressed up like the members of Kiss and performing all your Kiss favorites. Yes, we refer to Mini-Kiss. Really, how can you miss this? Larry DJs after the performance. – Thursday @ 10, Crobar, 530 W 28th, 212.629.9000

Funkstörung make the sort of music you feel you should appreciate because it’s difficult and a lot of thought went into it. Complicated beat structures, irregular rhythms, weird sounds! Light and fluffy it’s not. (And stop calling them the German Autechre, already). What the hell they are doing at the Tribeca Grand, site of many of life’s simpler pleasures, we are not entirely sure, but Funkstörung might frighten the bejesus out of the hipsters, and that will be fun to watch. With Alex English and a live set from Datach’i (Planet Mu). – Tuesday @ 10, Tribeca Grand Hotel, 2 Sixth Ave, 212.519.6500

It’s Gay Day on Sunday and for those of you who just don’t want the party to stop, like ever, Junior Vasquez will be playing for 14 hours. Go at your own risk. – Monday @ 8 a.m., Discotheque, 17 W 19th, 212.352.9999
