We’re still reeling from our 2nd birthday bash at the last Paradisco at Le Bain. Hundreds packed the venue for the stunning views, friendly crowd, and of course the best disco and house tracks from OXD and our honored guest, DJ Lina. We’re excited to share that we are officially throwing Paradisco every other week, and, with the weather getting warmer, the split indoor/outdoor space is proving to be a fantastic venue for our Sunday Tea Dance. Due to the party’s unprecedented success, we are working with Le Bain to get extra help for the bar and move the entrance to 444 West 13th Street (the regular night-time entrance) for an upgraded experience for occupiers.
This past week music lovers lost a legend–the Godfather of house music: Frankie Knuckles. We have always looked up to Frankie as the real pioneer, and have shared many of his classic tracks at previous editions of Paradisco. The outpouring of love we’ve seen for Frankie and his music only reinforces the idea that music truly does bring people from all walks of life together. That shared experience of discovering a new great song or waxing nostalgic to a classic is unparalleled. On April 13th, OXD’s DJ RuBot, Appelbaum, & Tad Haes will be paying homage to the late Frankie Knuckles with an eclectic mix of what’s fresh and new on the disco and house scene, as well as a good dose of Frankie’s house classics. We’re looking forward to dancing with you in honor of a great man. RSVP here.
