party in the park


On our way back to Kansas City, after Beat the Drums II, we stopped in for a little party in the park in celebration of several folks birthday, and just because.

essential wave


We met some new friends out in New York that just so happened to host a House Music night of their own over in Brooklyn, so we dropped in for a fun little night of dancing and debauchery.

featuring DJs Woody, Karl S & SO Unit






greetings from bellevue



Before heading over to check out Essential Wave, we met up at Bellevue for a short stay..

hogs & heifers saloon



While hanging around New York, my cousin dragged me up to the Meat Packing District for a little diversion at the spot that gave Coyote Ugly its story line.  It was a good night of PBR, Southern Fried Rock and dancing at the bar... or should I say on the bar?








return of the $20 woman


Still wandering the lower East Village in Manhattan, we dropped in on DJ Mr Shagadelic hosting a little gig at the Pioneer Bar. Folks were just showing up, and he was just getting started with some 80s tunes, and it was looking to be a good evening. We had a long walk back to the hotel though, and full day of work the next day, so only snapped a couple of shots and were on our way again.




remote lounge


While out wandering the streets of Manhattan, we stumbled across this random little technology-themed cocktail lounge on the edge of the East Village. Video screens at your table allowed you to control various cameras throughout the room.

pool house party

Another set of photos from the infamous ATM House Party, this time a pool party. The pool really was not big enough for more than one, but she seemed to enjoy it well enough. I also captured this bit of video of somebody rhymin out back. The video is really nothing more than sound, and I don't remember who it was. If you know, leave a comment.

mad love and respect


Ms Fortune had a little Birthday and Going Away Party at The Pool Room, so we made the trip out to say our good-byes and get our groove on with DJs Konsept, Mo-Sys, edw!n & Cynsere.

destroy all robots


The White School House was nearly in ruins after this event, and so were many of the folks in attendance.  It was a hot night of dancing to some fantastic music featuring The Jungle Brothers with jungle support from Rekstad & a little Disco House from Elliott.
