In recent news…!
The Kočani Orkestar came to NYC and we partied with them on Monday night (nothing unusual about Monday night shindigs here in NYC but this one was extra special!), from the rooftops of Chelsea to Mehanata’s party bus, and then finally on the dance floor of the infamous Bulgarian Bar itself. These guys are so laid back and awesome. They were playing with balloons and cracking jokes and even teaching us some moves. Obviously, legendary musicians and it was an honor to hang with them. See all of the photos from that night here and check out some of our favorites below.
The final video will be out in a couple of weeks and it features aerialist Seanna Sharpe conducting a few death-defying moves on the 16th floor balcony of a hotel, local artist & bohemian soul Syrie Moskowitz, our very own Raphlex and plenty of other characters.
Side note: Mishka styled some lovely lady dancers for the video we shot with the band, featuring pieces from her new line Bombay Mermaid Trading Co—check it out.

And some photos from the amazing bands we’ve had entertaining us at Mehanata recently… starting with BAD BUKA – they’ll be gracing the stage again March 6th.
Next, Where’s Ilva?, who we met through our friend (wouldn’t you know it) Ilva. We swear the vocalist has a face – and a dashing one at that. But the ice cage lighting didn’t do our photos any favors.
