If you read our site often, you are already thoroughly annoyed by my love for a little party called Magic Monday. I believe I’ve covered it three times before, while it was running at my favorite Lower East Side bar, St Jerome’s, so you might know a bit about it already. What you might not know, though, is that Magic Monday has been reincarnated. New York City club owner, writer, and overall leather-jacket-wearing-beer-drinking-LES-roaming-guy Luc Carl, has helped rebirth this party at his new decadent club, The Casino. For those of you that are nervous to make the switch from the St. Jerome’s Magic Monday to the new space, let me give you a little push. Dip your toes, my friends, the water feels real nice (No, really, there’s an indoor fountain/waterfall in the new club…). Continue reading

Back in October, we published an article about a then young Lower East Side weekday phenomenon known as Magic Monday. The Monday night festivities, held at St Jerome’s on Rivington, and brought to life by an exciting group of people, from bar regulars to DJs to singers and dancers, have grown from intimate to out of control in a very short amount of time. After spending about nine more months frequenting Magic Mondays, I’ve realized that there’s much, much more to talk about. So here it is, 7 Reasons To Go To Magic Monday, an article where I will name-drop my best friends and brag about my favorite local dive bar.
We wouldn’t normally showcase a party on here, but this one is worth checking out. Singer/songwriter/performance-artist and friend of Sound System NYC, Breedlove, will be performing weekly at a new party, NYC personality/blogger Darian Darling‘s SUNDAY!.

Mondays @ Midnight
St. Jerome’s, Lower East Side
On the Lower East Side, you can be anything that you want and still be fabulous, and St. Jerome’s Bar between Clinton and Suffolk is a whole mess of beautiful, “mess” being the key word. Going there on any given night, there’s cheap beer, pretty girls, and a DJ spinning rock n’ roll roll, but Mondays at midnight is when the “filthy glamour” takes over, with weekly sets by New York singer/performance artist Breedlove.

Irving Plaza, Union Square
Last night, Manhattan’s Irving Plaza was a battleground. The war waged was one in honor of bringing rock n’ roll back to New York City and mainstream music, a cause that has been ignored for far too long. The military general leading the blitz was Justin Tranter, with an infantry of the Lower East Side’s favorite rock kings and queens, Lady Starlight, Breedlove, and the guys of Semi Precious Weapons. “Rock n’ roll is not on the television, and it’s not on the radio, but it’s right here. Right now. So fuck the T.V., fuck the radio, I just want to fuck you”, was Tranter’s speech to a crowd of screaming and nearly naked fans, a moment that made at least one thing clear: victory had been claimed, and winning the war is only a shot away.
