Claude VonStroke Hits The Flash Factory, NYC’s New Den Of Dance
As one of the biggest metropolitan epicenters of the world, New York City is often awash with new restaurant, hotel and nightclub openings. In a city where the nightlife literally never ends, it can be easy to overlook new upstart venues and write them off as a dime a dozen. Chelsea’s new hot spot, the Flash Factory, is one locale, that can not and will not be written off so easily. Another brainchild from NYC nightlife impresarios Michael Satsky and Brian Gefter, Flash Factory is the new temple for underground dance music in the borough of Manhattan. This Friday May 13th, Dirtybird dynamo Claude VonStroke will be entering this newly dubbed den of mischief, to throw down one of his rowdy trademark sets. Grab your tickets to Friday’s show here.
Designed to resemble a house of worship, the Flash Factory conspicuously stands apart from the modernized designs of Brooklyn strongholds like Verboten and Output. With Gothic archways, fashionable chandeliers and church pews providing a delightful juxtaposition to the modern beats emanating from the speakers; the Flash Factory provides a unique aura not yet seen in the constantly transforming landscape of New York night life.
The duo of Satsky and Gefter, who are best known for their meat-packing mainstay Provocateur and the now closed Stereo, want the Flash Factory to become a sanctuary for the dwindling underground dance scene of Manhattan. While EDM fans situated in Brooklyn have the ever growing bounty of Williamsburg and Bushwick at their disposal, Manhattanites have had their hunger for experimental music largely ignored. The Flash Factory is here to change all that, and bring underground parties back to the forefront of New York city’s brightest borough.
With Claude VonStroke on the bill for this Friday, the Flash Factory will certainly be the place to be. Venture to New York’s newest den of iniquity and get a taste of Claude’s dirty beats in the process.
