Dance Magic Dance – Promoters, djs, girls!

DMD New York @ The Cake Shop

Posted in DMD Club, GIGS, MUSIC by jumpmagicjump on September 23, 2010

So Mireia and I (Belle) headed of to the big ol’ apple a few weeks back to put on a DMD night, to go to ATP New York and to have a little holiday. I can’t really remember which came first us booking a holiday and then deciding to do a night in NY or the other way around… either way we’re so glad we did it.

Not going to lie, having never been to The States before it felt like quite an ambitious task and at times it got quite stressful to put together, you know, the usual promoter nightmares of bands confirming and then pulling out  (one even pulled out twice!) but in the end it all worked out, as it always does, and we had a brilliant line up and had smashing time.

The thing that really stood out to us was just how bloody NICE everyone was! Like seriously genuinely lovely. We were made to feel so at home and really feel like we’d made a bunch of new friends.

We ended up staying till about 4 in the morning drinking with the bar man. He got us absolutely wasted whilst Cameron kept us entertained with his hilarious stories.

A huge thanks to Candy Hearts, Slow Animal, Girlfriends, Sweet Bulbs, Sisters, Cameron, Peggy, Grace, Andy and everyone at The Cake Shop for making it so special.

    Oh that bar man, he was like a twisted sleazy version of Michael Buffalo! 🙂
