Paradisco Nights @Pavilion, 8.1.14

Fire Island’s significance to the music world is undeniable – some even say it’s where disco had its genesis. From the Ice Palace, to The Botel, to the Sandpiper, disco, house and High-NRG music flourished with the crowds of gay men ravenous for the great dance music and community this island oasis offered. The rich musical history of the island is one that inspires us, and keeps us coming back every summer.

It is with great excitement that we will be spinning at the world-famous Pavilion Nightclub on Friday August 1st, for a Fire Island night edition of Paradisco. We’ll span the different iterations of the Pavilion’s history with classic Fire Island tracks as well as the latest in disco and house music. Join us for what’s bound to be a night to remember!

Paradisco (Season Finale) @Le Bain, 5.11.14

The concept of Paradisco has always been unique: a daytime party with great music that captures the essence of summer despite it being (sometimes miserably) cold and dreary outside. With summer around the corner, we are bringing the winter/spring season of Paradisco at Le Bain to a close this Sunday, May 11th. Don’t fret, we do have some upcoming summer projects that will keep you dancing, including our night parties at Le Bain (May 30th & Aug 8th — save the dates!), and few more special surprises we will announce shortly. In the meantime, Le Bain’s long running Noveau York party will be a great option for those looking for a Sunday soirée and we will be back at Le Bain later this year when temperatures start to drop and we are still yearning to hold on to summer.

So join us for one last Sunday dance this season where OXD’s DJ RuBot, Tad Haes & Appelbaum will play an eclectic mix of new disco, house and classics that will warm you up for the upcoming beach season.

Paradisco @Le Bain, 4.27.14

With more beautiful spring weather on tap for this weekend, Sunday brings what is bound to be another epic edition of Paradisco. We can honestly say that we’ve been blown away by how much fun you Occupiers have made this party. This week we’ll be able to properly serve sunset cocktails on the rooftop with the upstairs outdoor bar open in addition to the full bar downstairs. Note that the entrance will remain at 444 West 13th Street (the regular night-time entrance) to help expedite entry.

OXD’s DJs RuBot, Appelbaum & Tad Haes will be spinning an eclectic mix of what’s fresh and new on the disco and house scene as well as some essential classic tracks. Join us for NYC’s favorite tea dance, RSVP here and help us spread the word.

Paradisco @Le Bain, 4.13.14

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.

Paradisco @Le Bain, 3.30.14 – Celebrating 2 Years of OXD with DJ Lina

It has been quite a journey for Occupy The Disco since its inception and we’re proud to be celebrating our 2 year anniversary at this Sunday’s special edition of Paradisco! What started out as a simple gathering of friends who wanted to experience new music together has turned into something much greater than any of us have ever imagined. A huge thank you goes out to all DJs, promoters, venues, music lovers and dancers who believe in our mission and became the most important part of OXD’s success.

To help us ring in this momentous occasion we’ve called on our dear friend DJ Lina to join us for a special guest set at 5pm, so come early! Lina will add the special Fire Island flavor that only she can supply, just before she heads out to the Pines next week. OXD’s DJ RuBot, Tad Haes & Josh Appelbaum will keep everyone dancing for rest of day (and evening) with yet another dose of summery disco and house music.
