As silly as all the hype around the supposedly impending apocalypse might be, if it offers us an occasion to drink top-shelf liquor and dance around like fools, then why not pretend? Tonight, Webster Hall’s Girls & Boys party offers perhaps the city’s best place to do just that, celebrating (?) the occasion with sets from Toronto bass DJs Zeds Dead and the mysterious UZ, whose pseudonymous productions have done as much as any to define the sound of 2012’s trendiest genre, trap rave. Of course, if the world is supposed to go up in flames at 11:11, then why are they waiting until 10 to start the party?
