Thursday, February 2, 2012 my girls Sara, Stephie, Pia and I attended the Skrillex and Wezc Secret Event Party. Before this night I had no idea who Skrillex was or what Dubstep was as well. I’m not living under a rock I’m just a hip hop reggae baby and I’m not much of a music venture. So Dub step is a type of electronic dance music that originated in South London, United Kingdom. Its overall sound has been described as “tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals. If Melissa wasn’t in Colombia she would have loved it!
Our friend Smurfo who hooked us up with the event passes told us to be at the Wezc location 9 pm SHARP! We got there promptly at 9pm but it apparently wasn’t early enough because the line outside was already almost around the block. The Wezc store was jammed pack by the time we got there too, so they were only allowing people to exit. After a couple of minutes standing in the cold, we made it inside to received our VIP passes. Those passes allowed us on this mega bus which was going to bring us to the secret location all the action was being held at. We chilled / warmed up in the Wezc store for a little to meet some new people and take advantage of the free bar ;-). Once we entered the bus, to keep everyone’s anticipation on high they made us blind fold ourselves for the trip. That was my favorite part of the night. The surprise location wasn’t as wonderful as I thought it would be….
The secret location happened to be a place I have a love /hate relationship with, which is W.I.P located in the South Village of Manhattan, the sub-basement of Greenhouse. The secret was a concert by Skrillex which was a new kinda concert for me but it wasn’t bad. It was just too crowded for me , but like always the art showcased at W.I.P was on point. I loved the performance art like the candle light lady above. This was the event where I met my new amazing friend Brian Life [ live painting in the photo below]. Meeting him was definitely my highest highlight of the night. After Pia, Stephie and Sara had our share of Dubstep and W.I.P, we decided to meet up with Stephie’s friends and Sara decided to do her own thing. We meet them at Sutra to try to make the night more lively but that spot wasn’t hitting our spot so we decided to head to Fat Baby. We never made it in because one of Stephie’s friends didn’t have her ID. That was a sign to call it a night so Pia, Edgar and I headed home. Now Edgar and I had an amazing catch up convo that night. He ended up taking the train all the way home with me because his cousin Greg had his house keys and was now where to be found. I always love Edgar and my “godfather & princess” talks because I always end up feeling inspired and powered up at the end of each one.
Skrillex in action. If you can see him.
I look odd in this picture but it’s the only one I have that shows off my entire outfit which I was in LOVE with that night.
The night was a night to remember but it was great because I shared with my favorite girls.
Till Next Time XOXO
