ESCARIOKA DEBUT ALBUM! FACTOR SABOR!

Our close comrades and partners-in-throwing-NYC’s-most-insane-dance-parties (not to mention massively talented musicians with flavor you just don’t come across often) ESCARIOKA released their debut album, FACTOR SABOR. You can listen to the whole thing at Soundcloud.

ABOUT ESCARIOKA:

“ESCARIOKA is a multicultural collective that started late 2002 in Elizabeth NJ. Since the start, an explosion of energy that mixes ROCK N’ ROLL and HARD-CORE DUB TROPICAL RAGGAMUFFIN with flavors from around the world. ESCARIOKA is lead by Exequiel & Pablo D’ambrosio, Cristobal Miranda Hidalgo and Fernando Alvarez.

The meaning of ESCARIOKA is to keep sharing the party with positive messages against false truth in society, keeping hope alive, and combatting one’s ego to stay true. The bottom line is to enjoy ”EL BAILONGO” (the party).

ESCARIOKA has earned themselves a top spot in NYC’s world music scene, opening for bands like SKA-P,LOS DESTELLOS, CHICO TRUJILLO, FIDEL NADAL, MIMI MAURA, SERGIO ROTMAN (Fabulosos Cadillacs) and more.

The band will release its first album ”FACTOR SABOR” under the independent label of MEHANATA RECORDS. ESCARIOKA will keep promoting flavor, energy, happiness, identity, density, capacity, party, etc! This collective of artists are more than just a Rock n’ Roll band — they’re a group of close friends that consider one another family, and will work together to spread their message.

Thanks to all the fans and our family that support us in our shows, showing tremendous love – we want to say thank you so much!”

BURDEL DALI, IRENE STYLE!

Obviously when the Mehanata & Burdel familia has a natural disaster party, the results don’t look too much different from a night at Mehanata. Gracias to Natalita who hosted a crazed dance/smoke/drink/love party for 24+ hours while Irene ravaged the Tri-state.

Come back anytime, Irene! We’ll treat you just the same!

(In jest of course… we send our love & prayers to the people of the tri-state who lost homes, sustained injury or property damage, and in general, had a shit time dealing with the storm… we recommend you come dance it off with us this week)

Easter Egg Hunt

Tonight the burdel crew will be spinning on Ten Eyck street in Bushwick, Brooklyn at the Gypsy Stole Easter party. Expect fire dancers, live snakes, girls dressed like bunnies in cages, body painting, accordion-playing, awesome djs, and more than your easter basket can hold…

SEE YOU THERE!!

No Man’s Land, Part 2 of the Epic Gypsy Punk Underground Warehouse Throwdown

An amazing night, featuring Joro Boro, [Burdel Dali], Kagero with Kate Dunphy, Amour Obscure and many more. Thanks to Davo and the No Man’s Land family for an amazing night and a great pre-party dinner. Just like last time, we didn’t leave until 8:30AM or so.

See more photos at our facebook page.

 

Gypsy Eviction, Part II.

Thanks to all who came out to our Valentines day pregame. We sold all of Mishto’s kisses to one pretty lady who now has an impressive debt to pay. A full gallery of that hot pink madness will be up this weekend.

More photos of the Gyspsy Eviction c/o Tchaikovsky Darling. The full set (over 100!) is up at our facebook page.

And check out this video from the Mehanata Haiti benefit concert, featuring a ton of cool bands and Michelle taking rakia shots with Ilva. The real deal.

Gypsy Eviction!

The commune was decked in sheer white and lights for the unceremonious eviction party that happened on the 2nd, hosted by our lovely friend Lennon and her band of misfit cohabitants. The tiny dancers dressed themselves like mystical thrift shop fiends and we all had a dose of honey on our tongues to keep things sweet.

The Urban Gypsy Olympics

We had the pleasure of attending/djing the Urban Gypsy Olympics, presented by our very own moment of brilliant textile decadence, Lennon, in her Bushwick commune. Skirts were swirling, dogs were barking, and my wedding was about to start. Wait, what?

Photos by nightlifebaby – The full gallery is up here at our facebook page, with additional shots by Michelle Christina at Tchaikovsky Darling.

The moustacho party was a big success – keep an eye on us for photos of many charming women in all matter of under-nose bristles and questionable facial hair developments.
