RIP Last Ruff Gemz Tomorrow Night
posted by November 6 at 12:49 PMon
The shifting sands will forever continue to move back and forth beneath our feet, and the winds of change will never stop blowing and making our hair look just so, am I right?
And tomorrow, those sands and winds bring one of my most beloved dance parties to an end. Ruff Gemz, the sacred weirdo-fest full of the kind of dance music I want to hear (punk, electro, queer) and $1 beer, is coming to it’s prolonged end. DJ Fucking in the Streets (our own Eric Grandy, natch) and Sam Rousso Soundsystem will be spinning for free.
Do yourself a favor and go. Get stoned in the dog park, walk one block up to the Baltic Room, get a stamp, drink four beers, dance with Mr. Spazztastic (you’ll know him when you see him), get a slice at Juliano’s next door, go back and dance until they kick you out. You won’t regret it, and you will know how the section of the population you most admire lived every Wednesday night for approximately the last year and a half.
