Traveling Nightclub Shade Holds Epic Halloween Party in Abandoned Factory in Brooklyn
This past Friday Brooklyn’s traveling club, Shade, organized a Halloween party of immaculate proportions and bacchanalian magnitude. The sold-out event took place in an abandoned factory in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, and bolstered a thousand plus eccentrically costumed attendees, including celebrity designer, Riccardo Tisci.
With an eerily occult décor apt to its theistic title, “Shade Saves,” the theme embodied an ironic affinity for monastic conventions related to Catholicism. A designated smoking section, replete with red clouds of cigarette smoke, was lit by a hanging red neon crucifix and contained seating simulating church pews. The main stage area was enclosed by a laser lightshow and strobe lights, producing a hallucinatory effect in an ethereal atmosphere.
Music by Matrixxman and Physical Therapy, among others, set the precedent for techno-centric parties in NYC. The blowout was arguably NYC’s most anticipated Halloween party and will ensure its organizers, Ladyfag and Seva Granik, the status of party-planning virtuosos until their next attempt.
