The Tango Factory @ DROM
With the dancing season in full swing, we figured it was about time we opened the doors to the Tango Factory, a brand new milonga tango event

Join us for our brand new tango night with the best of the new wave of tango musicians in New York City. Tango Nuevo, Electro Tango. Images & sounds of Buenos Aires – A multimedia milonga where music, image and dance converge. Tango as a dynamic expression, a vortex where the “old” and the “new” expressions become present. In the heart of the East Village, Drom’s cozy lounge, full bar, dance floor and table areas get in a tango mood and the place becomes “The Tango Factory” Come and let’s make Tango together

High on Life – Summer Rooftop BBQ Party #2 @ HIGHBAR
GBH & Electric Lila invite you to unwind or dance to the sounds of dub, reggae & dancehall supplied by DJ Emch Subatomic Sound System and a short live performance by Coolooloosh

If last Sunday was any indication, we should be in for another treat at this week’s rooftop dance & BBQ party on top of the Highbar. The breezy rooftop and spectacular view of the sunset only added to the music and good times as people danced, caught up with friends and celebrated their birthdays. For this Sunday’s edition we welcome DJ Emch from Subatomic Sound System who will be armed with a bag of goodies ranging from outernational dub and dancehall to roots reggae, while Israeli hip-hop, soul & funk outfit Coolooloosh blesses us with a short acoustic set (their full show is at Joe’s Pub on July 23). Remember, it’s all free with an RSVP.
