BLOWOFF Some Steam in September

With the expansion of nightlife culture once again transforming before our eyes, the clubs seem more like a three-ring circus looking to appeal to any and every kind of flavor. On one stage the drag queens are holding court over all that is deemed fabulous. In another corner the bougie boys are serving up attitude, and serving it well. Then there are the twinks who often leave the party early once the open bar closes surrendering the dance floor to the "real men".

For more than 5 years now there's been one event, one party that has set aside all the pretense, put the beats at the center of the stage, and especially brought together the hottest men to simply have a good time. At a "BLOWOFF" party all that matters are the good vibes and the camaraderie that bring the best out of the crowd. This Friday, Sept. 13 @ 11pm the men of BLOWOFF will all be blowing off some steam at a new space, taking over the Gramercy Theatre at 127 East 23rd Street, between Park and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan.

Historically the BLOWOFF event has filled Chelsea's Highline Ballroom to capacity. Moving the party to a more centrally located space is proof that the event engineers Bob Mould's and Rich Morel's are dedicated to keeping things fresh and bringing in more dance floor revelers into the fold. For 5 years, Mould and Morel have improved one of the circuit systems most anticipated events of the season by keeping the focus on what should matter most: the music and its worshippers.

BLOW These Beats

Between New York and Washington, Mould and Morel have dominated the scene with their high-energy blend of rock and electro-house. Their style makes for some of the most energized symphonic experience. The duo always impresses with a dizzying set list that is as varied as it is unexpected. Their collaboration has lead to one of the scenes most recognizable brands, leading the party provocateurs to expand their horizons beyond just the beats per minute generating from the speakers. They make bank on t-shirts, jock straps, downloadable DJ set lists, and recognizable poster art worthy of decorating any burly bachelor pad.

BLOWOFF also still remains one of the best values, but tickets do go fast and prices sometimes increase at the door. If you’re looking to follow the feast on Friday, head on over to the Gramercy Theatre in New York. Doors open at 11pm for the BLOWOFF Summer’s end event of 2013. Want to know where all the real men are? This should not be missed.
