Myopenbar 5th Anniversary
Myopenbar 5th Anniversary
Since its inception, MyOpenBar has successfully gotten many a hipster soused. They've also been buzzed about, written about, praised, threatened, thanked, conferred "best of" status, and occasionally, a physical target for the wrong end of a Grey Goose bottle.

This month the site celebrates its fifth anniversary in operation with a balls out party in exactly the raucous tradition you've come to expect. With live performances and DJ sets from some amazing guests, and a night that also doubles as a birthday shindig for both Jonathan Toubin (of the New York Night Train), and Michelle Cable (of the Panache Booking family).

Come join the celebration.
Vockah Redu
Although the Magnolia Housing Projects have long been demolished, a light post still stands at the corner where youth like Vockah Redu (Javocca Davis) gathered to rap and create beats. The light post marks one of the birthplaces of Bounce music, a genre of rap specific to New Orleans that has invigorated crowds throughout the South. Vockah Redu and the Cru animate the stage with their dynamic revival of dance, music, and art from the street corner to the club. More than your typical hip-hop act, this theatrical performance sets the stage for a sweaty hands down booty up good time, transforming any party, bar, or dance floor in your neighborhood.

The original Cru formed in 1997 and was composed of the Ave Girls; Joi Jadah (Joi Denise Sessions), Teedy Booh (Tasha Marie Butler), Ninny (Shanita Davis), Grahonda Pooh (Madonna Melissa Oliver). Currently the Cru is com- posed of Shortee Whop (Glendell Weir), Energyzah (Clarence Mosley), and Taveion Rodeo (Donte Brown). The Cru dominates the stage with electrifying choreography, costumery, skits, and superb street style.
The Miracles Club
Honey Owens is no music newbie—she's spent years in genre-bending outfits like Jackie-O Motherfucker, Nudge, and more recently with ambient/experimental solo project Valet. But The Miracles Club marks a new direction for Owens: house music. Teaming up with drum-machine-obsessed painter/artist Rafael Fauria, Owens is making uplifting dance music inspired by classic Chicago sounds. The duo has even enlisted the services of performance artist/dancer Ryan Boyle for their live show. The group's debut EP, Light of Love, was released earlier this year on their own Ecstasy imprint.
