Deep Space Dance Party
Cielo, 18 Little West 12th Street, Manhattan
Don’t discount dubstep before you’ve heard the real thing. Talented DJs Appleblim, Francois K. and Shackleton, have been writing, producing, and performing experimental dubstep together and separately for almost a decade. Electronic bass technician Kode9 backs up the evening with hard-hitting beats that’ll send you bouncing off the walls before landing in breakdance mode squarely on the dance floor.

Double Vision: A Drink and Draw
Skylark Bar, 477 5th Avenue, Brooklyn
What do a boxer, a ballerina, and a martial arts master who refuse to get naked have in common? They've all been past models for the bi-weekly Double Vision series hosted at Skylark. This time, a hot goth chick will be your muse. Happy Hour drink specials are extended to 10 p.m. for the sketchy event. Skylark has a few sheets of paper and No. 2 pencil in stock, but it’s highly recommend that you bring your own tools to reap the full (slightly drunken) artistic experience.
