I'm DJing at Rothko on Saturday night at around 1am-ish. Please come. It'll be fun and there will be dancing and good times had by all!

Here's all the important info:

This Saturday June 5
Another Saturday and another rocking party with the following bands/djs:
MyTvs: Record Release Party!!! MyTvs sound as if James Chance and The Contortions were still in their 20's and incorporated more catchy pop hooks into their songs.

Mixel Pixel: Mixel Pixel has found a way of integrating old Atari/Nintendo sounds with punk, electro, experimental, and rock elements that resemble in spirit Johnny Thunders and Suicide to make some fun tunes that will get the crowd partying. For fans of The Unicorns, Ween, Suicide, The Flaming Lips, and peeps with a punk spirit.

PJ Harvey: "Uh Huh Her" record release/listening party with giveaways. This is PJ Harvey's seventh album to date and it's as brilliant as ever. On this release she is bringing back some of her more raw and punk energy that she displayed on past great albums like "Dry".

Djs: Oil(Kanine Records) and Scott(OtherMusic) and guest Dj Ultragrrrl(Spin Mag) playing a mix btw. Brit/Indie/PostPunk/Nu-wave/Remix dance music.

Rothko ( 116 Suffolk St. btw Rivington and Delancy, NYC)

i gotta be honest, i'm pretty underwhelmed by the new PJ Harvey. it's not even as good as Stories From The City imo, which was def not her best effort either.

it's not terrible or anything, just a bit snoozy, and only a few (read 2 or 3) standout tracks.

I will try and make it but I am SEVERELY broke and can't be tempted by bartenders.

I saw it again this evening
Black sail in a pale yellow sky
And just as before in a moment,
It was gone where the grey gulls fly

If it happens again I shall worry
That only a strange ship could fly
And my sanity scans the horizon
In the light of the darkening sky

That night as I walked in my slumber
I waded into the sea strand
And I swam with the moon and her lover
Until I lost sight of the land

I swam till the night became morning
Black sail in a reddening sky
Found myself on the deck of a rolling ship
So far where no grey gulls fly

All around me was silence
As if mocking my frail human hopes
And a question mark hung in the canvas
For the wind that had died in the ropes

I may have slept for an hour
I may have slept for a day
For I woke in a bed of white linen
And the sky was the color of clay

At first just a rustle of canvas
And the gentlest breath on my face
But a galloping line of white horses
Said that soon we were in for a race

The gentle sigh turned to a howling
And the grey sky she angered to black
And my anxious eyes searched the horizon
With the gathering sea at my back

Did I see the shade of a sailor
On the bridge through the wheelhouse pane
Held fast to the wheel of the rocking ship
As I squinted my eyes in the rain

For the ship had turned into the wind
Against the storm to brace
And underneath the sailor's hat
I saw my father's face

If a prayer today is spoken
Please offer it for me
When the bridge to heaven is broken
And you're lost on the wild, wild sea
Lost on the wild, wild sea...
