Parties, panels and other notable media gatherings
WHAT: Disco Years Panel Discussion & Book Signing
WHO: Michael Musto, Ron Galella, Maripol and Randy Jones of The Village People
WHERE: powerHouse Arena, 37 Main Street, Brooklyn
WHY YOU SHOULD GO: An esteemed panel of vintage New York scenesters from the glam era, presumably waxing poetic about what it was like “back in the day, you don’t understand.”
WHAT: FHM Celebrates Pacha’s One Year Anniversary
WHERE: Pacha, 618 W 46th Street
WHY YOU SHOULD GO: FHM, the laddie import which yesterday announced it will be closing its U.S. ops, is going ahead with plans for its party at Pacha on Saturday — hosted by Sopranos stars and velvet rope regulars Jamie Lynn Sigler and Robert Iler. Quite a fitting way to bury a magazine.
WHAT: Lebowski Fest
WHERE: Cozy Bowl, 9818 Rockaway Blvd., Queens
WHY YOU SHOULD GO: We’ve been touting this semi-regular gathering of “Achievers” (the preferred nomenclature of fans of the Big Lebowski) for years now, and this is the third New York summit. And one of these years, Steve Buscemi‘ll show up.
NOTE: The ‘Fest includes parties on Friday and Saturday. But we just want to fucking roll.
