MUSIC: White Noise Fades to Black

UNDERGROUND AND OFF THE RADAR

I’ll keep this simple. New York City’s nightlife is losing its edge, barely hanging on by a thread thanks to those underground loyalists who refuse to follow the pack. Everything good eventually comes to an end, and you’re lucky if you’re there when it happens. Last night was one of those nights in the East Village at a tucked-away bar/lounge on Avenue B which reopened its doors for one last hurrah _ celebrating DJ Bumpy Nuggets birthday. The spot, White Noise, had recently closed for reasons unknown to me like so many other small clubs and businesses trying to survive around the city. What I know, however, was the party last night underscores the value of friendship and staying true to a funky, intimate, renegade vibe. I miss that more and more when going out in New York _ a different time, a different attitude. Forget all the bottle service BS and wannabe posers. I’m talking about respecting the spirit of House music and underground dance culture _ appreciating the raw energy of the moment. DJs Aaron Dae, Oscar P. and several others took turns mixing and keeping the music flowing for friends celebrating with Bumpy Nuggets and others in the area checking out things at the dimly-lit, red-tinged bar. Not sure what’ll replace White Noise, but I hate to see another good place go … again (i.e., Sin Sin, Mars Bar, etc.)
