Featured Party of the Week: 


Verboten's Zeitgeist: Felix da Housecat, Metro Area [DJ set], Kate Simko, Clarian


New York’s new underground party playground, Verboten, has been bringing amazing, talented artists to their much deserved new club space and permanent home in Williamsburg since it opened last month. The April lineup is in full swing; this weekend we are ecstatic to see electro house/disco don, Felix da Housecat make his debut at Verboten’s new digs. Last year, after a four-year hiatus, he released a new studio album, concocted a top-notch BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, and has made his highly-anticipated return to the club scene. 


He's joined by Metro Area, who's last DJ set for Verboten's StageONE was jam-packed with high quality boogie and cutting edge house and techno tunes. The duo was born out of mutual love of the classic, soulful R&B, disco, and minimalistic deep house. Also performing tonight are Kate Simko, who is helping to bridge the gap amongst the deep-house/techno divide, bringing her melodic, Chicago-infused take on house and techno, and Footprintz's Clarian, who went solo last year and will be wrapping up the night with his emotive, poignant sounds for a low-key underground ambiance. Oh, and a man with serious DJ talent, you might know him as Paul Raffaele who throws killer parties that you don't want to miss (The Dog and Pony Show) will be playing a set for us as well. 


Verboten continues to elevate Brooklyn’s underground art and music scene with a variety of culture programming including the launch of "Art is Verboten" by Mike Dreeland, Wasabassco at Verboten: Danger!, Music Unites: Youth Music Education, and PopGun presents Adult.


The first art show will be kicking off tonight in the Cabaret Bar; “Art is Verboten” by NY pop artist Mike Dreeland. The art show is from 8:00PM-11:00PM, some come early... there's a sponsored bar by Belvedere Vodka, Jameson, and Veuve Cliquot. 


Defined as a 21st century artist by the nature of his work, Dreeland introduces a pop art style that mixes basic acrylics and techniques from old masters with hi-tech tools of the present and future. Modern technology, with the use of graphic design programs, has allowed Dreeland to spotlight a unique step and repeat style by using multiple layers and common objects. Thick paint and bold colors characterizes Dreeland’s work. Dreeland collaborates with the music and lifestyle team at Verboten on the launch of their eponymous nightlife venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn to display custom Dreeland pieces within the venue. 


Verboten has some pretty fantastic shows coming up, including Carl Craig (Somewhere in BKN), Kenny Larkin and Davide Squillace, a celebration of 20 years of Josh Wink’s Ovum label, and much more. Stay tuned for more visual art and live music cultural highlights at Verboten to be announced soon!
