Stay gold all summer with The Couch Sessions’ Stay Gold BK: Summer Sessions.
Due to overwhelming demand, we’ve decided to bring back the Summer Sessions: our monthly late-afternoon-to-evening concert series, at The Paperbox in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Among last year’s Summer Sessions highlights, we introduced NYC to electronic beatsmith/phenom XXYYXX and kept the party jumping with DJ So Super Sam and DJ Run P’s infectious yacht-rock chillout vibes.
On June 8, 5pm-2am we continue our quest to find the perfect beat – the melding of electronic music with Hip Hop, Trap, Indie Rock, RnB, Synth and Pop. And this time, we are Staying Gold… with a razor’s edge.
Between 5-9pm we bring you a show The Couch Sessions is best known for – a summer chill-out concert spotlighting the music industry’s most sought-out emerging artists in the genres of electro-rock, pop, Hip Hop, and RnB. For this portion of Stay Gold BK, set to perform are Brooklyn-based electro-soul duo Denitia and Sene and Tennessee-based electro-pop band Cherub (voted The Couch Session’s top 100 albums of 2012). After seeing both acts kill their live show at our “Circus” showcases (SXSW and CMJ), we are beyond excited to present you these talented artists once again.
From 10pm-2am, we transform the vibe of Stay Gold BK into a raucous Brooklyn warehouse electro-trap jam. We break out the gold grills, 808s and hi-hats and start off the party with one of Brooklyn’s most anticipated trap/electro-rap groups Weekend $. Stadium Status (DJ at WIP, The Griffin, Greenhouse) and DJ Run P will keep the jam trill till the wee hours of the morning.
Stay Gold BK will be fully catered by Brown Butter NYC (official caterers for Polo Ralph Lauren, etc.), creating a menu that implements our sponsors Newcastle Brown Ale and Newcastle Blonde Bombshell.
Stay Gold BK will have two 1-hour Newcastle Brown Ale and Newcastle Blonde Bombshell open bars (6-7pm; 10-11pm) with giveaways and contesting from the good folks at Rocksmith NYC and Reebok.
And since we are Staying Gold for the summer, we will also have a gold-grills fitting booth by the famous jeweler Sincere Mula (ASAP Mob, Black Inc. Crew, Rocksmith, etc.)
Stay Gold BK Summer Sessions will be held at The Paper Box NYC – Brooklyn’s independent outdoor/indoor live music and art complex in Williamsburg BK. 3 blocks off the L Train Grand St. station.
