This will certainly be a Memorial Day weekend to remember!
SPANK is thrilled to once again join our friends from Horse Meat Disco this Memorial Day Weekend SUNDAY.
Last time was a blast and this time we think will be even better… because of the venue. We can’t wait to play on Output’s sound system which is already storied even though the club is new. Join us in BROOKLYN!!
Our incantations worked – our Rites of Spring Party was the biggest we have ever thrown at DROM! Check all the pixx, it was fantastic and epic! Thanks to to Viva Ruiz for her powerful incantation (Spring was spun!), Jeff Ralston for Inflatable Dancing Flowers, Big Art Group for Video Immersion, Valentine Amartey for transforming our gogo boys into human maypoles, Flower Power host David Meanix and those unstoppable gogo boys Nathan Carrera and Max Steel for going all-night-long!
Midnight Magic: A nine person ensemble bonded by the unwavering desire to make you, the listener, and the rhythm become one; the secret love children of Donna Summer and George Clinton serving up an orgasmic feast of funk, disco, electro and soul.
After a decade in one of the most successful crossover bands, Scissor Sisters Derek Gruen (a.k.a. Del Marquis) strips away his pop persona to create an album that relies beautifully on the synergy of a carefully selected and intertwined group of collaborators.
Slow Knights is a collective that steps away from glamour shots and imagery that pushes the personality of anyone within. Musicians interchange roles as lead and backup singer, as writer and performer, all brought to life by the golden touch of former members of The New Power Generation!
Guests vocalists on the album include Rod Thomas (Bright Light Bright Light), Xavier, Chrissie Poland, Bridget Barkan and Mykal Kilgore.
One of the first parties we ever threw as SPANK (5 years ago!) was Rites of Spring. Our buddies <b>Machine</b> and <b>Xavier</b> (the tallest wild boys we could wrangle) were our literal human maypoles and Big Art Group did live video green-screen projections. Things got messy… ribbon everywhere, nudity, etc! Next weekend we are back with a return to our <b>RITES of SPRING </b>theme only a few block away from the original location of Spank -at a spot about ten times the size! In fact you may have been to DROM when it was Opaline -which housed many a debaucherous night of it’s own, or when we have thrown SPANK there! We will be conjuring those spirits as we announce Spring and look toward a long hot summer!
