Raves this weekend


Now, some of you may be wondering: why Touch and Feel? Are you guys pedophiles or something? Perverts who grope women in public? Gay incestuous twin lovers? No, no, and hell no!

In truth, those happen to be our rave names from Los Angeles. Admittedly, neither of us raves much anymore (especially since we're in the East Coast now) and if anything we consider ourselves punk rockers at heart, but we still love trance/hardstyle/techno and raves are a blast to attend in general.

Anyway, the reason I bring this up is because there are two (three) promising events happening this weekend for those of you near New York City!

First off, there's Resurrection on Friday the 24th of September at a place called Evolution in Brooklyn. One of us attended a rave here last week and, though we must admit it lacked the full awesomeness of raves in Los Angeles--where it seems like everyone follows the PLUR ethos and shuffles like a pro--it was nonetheless loads of fun. This week, it'll be even bigger and thus (hopefully) even better! It goes from 9 PM to 4 AM, and admission is $5 before 11, $10 after.

Then, if you feel like powering through the weekend without sleep, there's 2012: A Telepathic Awakening happening on Saturday the 25th! This one is definitely a lot bigger than Resurrection, though it is a bit heavier on the Dubstep (which may or may not be a bad thing, depending on your preferences). It is also in Brooklyn, at the Wild East Saloon. This puppy goes from 8 PM to 6 AM in the morning, but will cost $20 if you did not buy presale tickets (and $25 if you don't go in costume).

Lastly, if you don't feel like forking over your Jackson, or want to warm up before 2012, there's a FREE event going on at Union Square in Manhattan called Unified Vibes. It goes from 2pm to 6pm.

Enjoy!

  9. Frank: I studied abroad in London for a semester (which is why I will use some British slang--mostly mate, chap, and bloody, as well as some inflection--from time to time) and I must say that Los Angeles does give you guys a run for your money, especially our massives :) Of course, Ibiza and the Nordic countries set the standard by which all others are measured.

    Bruno: No problem!

    Ocioso: Well, now you know anyway ;)
