As I mentioned yesterday, this weekend is Urban Bear Weekend here in New York. Follow the link for the complete rundown of events, but know that all the events also show up on the This Is FYF calendar for your reference (of For Your Fun?).
Very briefly --- Tonight's opening and meet and greet takes place at Chelsea Clearview Cinemas just prior to a screening of the Spanish film, "Bear Cub" (quel a propos!). Immediately following, a new weekly Thursday night party, Behr, kicks off up at Elevate. Tomorrow night, there's a special edition of Bana for the revelers, after a Bear Crawl of Christopher Street and a comedy revue at Comix. Saturday there's a Bear-B-Q at the Eagle and an UnderBear party at newly-opened Boxers NYC. Sunday, there's a Street Fair, as well as a Cub Cuddle party...and it all ends with a one-night only return of Truck Stop at The Park.
Grrowrrr that's a lot!
Just as there's a lot going on at the Vatican these days (Ok. So pretty much everything in this post - title included - can be read at LEAST two ways?!), there's a lot going on this weekend. Check out tonight's highly-edited rundown here (Walt's opening! Sugar Daddy!).
- Tomorrow, things kick off bawdily (bodily?) at "The Ultimate Burlesque Showdown" The Burning Bush vs. The Second Coming where the Easter vs. Passover score is settled once and for all? Le Poisson Rouge at 8pm (Doors at 7pm).
Given his frenetic schedule, we weren’t sure if Corey Craig would have a spare minute to respond to our battery of questions – when we first reached him, he was busy DJing at Mardi Gras in Australia. Then again, you don’t become New York’s reigning king of pop house by declining an opportunity to talk up your style.
How do you organize your music collection? By genre, key and mood. I mix harmonically, so it is important for me to know all the tracks that are in certain keys. They are friends in my playlist.
What are the top five tracks in your iTunes, all time?
What's your current typical tech set up for playing out? At home?
What requests won't you take? Requests for ANOTHER song from the same artist playing while you ask. If you want to hear an entire album, play it at home.
You’re bombing. What's the next track? I have never had this happen, but I suppose a gay anthem that provokes singing along would wake up the masses.
Who should play your funeral? My funeral should be a party, hopefully spun by the Freemasons with eulogies recited over fierce beats! (My hot promoters would make this happen, I just know it).
What are you when you're not a DJ? A lover, a friend, an excellent roommate and oh yeah, a Chemotherapy/Nuclear Pharmacist.
You're trapped on a desert island. Which diva have you brought along to eat? Hopefully, I am trapped on a "DESSERT ISLAND" ... I won't eat a diva, I will just bribe her to bake for me!
International travel aside, Corey is keeping plenty busy stateside – you can catch him on April 15 at FOX at The Park, April 17 in the Triumph Room at Club 57, and occasional Friday nights at RockBar. You can keep up with his selections on his podcast, or sample from his current top ten (as he notes: “Look Ma...No Bey or GaGa…”):
Mister Dave Hughes has lived in Chinatown, the East Village, Tribeca, Long Island City, and Harlem, and he currently hangs his hat in Williamsburg. He likes politics, disco and whiskey. His writing has also appeared in Slant, New York, and other fine publications.
