Factory, Manhattan’s modern music refuge, delivers a strong first
month’s worth of bookings to christen the recently finished venue.
Although last weekend’s opening night with The Martinez Brothers was
thwarted by snow, the venue will open this Friday 1/29 with legendary
Canadian DJ and producer Tiga, followed by house connoisseur DJ QU on
1/30, Hot Creations label head Jamie Jones on 2/5, and Eric Prydz’s
techno alias Cirez D on 2/13.
10,000 square foot Flash Factory is poised to deliver what Manhattan
has been missing for decades – a serious space for music that stepped
down a rabbit hole. The venue is unlike any other, steeped in the NYC
tradition of CBGBs and the Fillmore. In time when New York mega clubs
are closing down or moving to Brooklyn, “night-life impresarios Michael
Satsky and Brian Gefter hope to lure the techno underground back to
Manhattan using a new tool in their hospitality arsenal: populism” – The New York Times.
venue eschews LED panels and screens, instead opting for organic
architectural elements. “Its décor pulls from abandoned churches and 70s
disco boîtes, pairing stained glass windows and wooden crosses with
metallic wallpaper and laser-cut archways. A pristine white stone altar,
salvaged from an old church in the Bronx, is repurposed as the central
DJ deck.” – The Guardian.
in stark contrast to the electronic functionality of modern day joints,
Flash Factory is an homage to an era of vaudevillian eccentricity and
Victorian decadence. Whether you love punk, techno, or rock, Flash
Factory provides a proper venue for fans to connect with artists and
their music, creating a communal experience and a sanctuary for those
lost in rhythm.
