On Saturday the 10th of March the NYC underground was treated to a classic art loft party of a kind not seen since Gulliani transformed this city into the dour place it is today.

As we previously mentioned, the electric sheep and their shephard Spot Draves debuted in New York back in January at the Ethnocentric Salon at CoSM. The exhibition engaged an at-capacity crowd at Alex Grey’s Chelsea gallery and sanctuary. It was a digital symposium featuring the hi-fi dreams variant of electric sheep, followed by a dialogue between the visionary artist and the visionary programmer. The curious came to see the sheep and the famous sacred art, then stayed amazed and danced until morning.

It was the first taste of psychedelic trance for many of New York’s counter-cultural elites.

Projected Psychedelic Electric Sheep Out of that night comes this non-commercial multimedia event. Spot’s electric sheep will be cast large on the walls while we dance to progressive psychedelic trance mixed artful across the span of ten (or so) hours. Three psy headliners are flying in from Sweden this Saturday — Reefer Decree, Ibojima, and Christer.

The remaining… eight-or-so hours of music will be provided by DJ’s Dave Henshaw and AmmonEP, from the Boston-based Sonic Beating psytribe, and Lauryn and Tony Unorthodox, standing for 28thday and NYC.

No true multimedia art party would be complete without the chance to play with fun technology. In this case, an A/V chat will link the two psy parties in Boston and NYC. Perhaps also a webcast of the video projection, should the tech gnomes and I happen across a cam worthy of the task. More on that as the date approaches.

All that is publicly known for now is that it is somewhere in Queens. This is a private exhibition so, if you want to attend, you will need to email shift@28thday.com or purchase a ticket directly from the 28thday site. In this spirit, the location will remain a secret until Thursday night, at which point RSVPs will receive full directions.

    All I can say is…holy molie, what an event. The rvsp actually worked out REALLY well in terms of space. Wonderland is an awesome place, I was happy to be back there. SoOOooo many friendly faces new and familiar, near and far and everyone was just having an all out good time.

    The music was absolutely soul-full and heart thumping. Lauryn, Ibojima, reefer..way to melt face!!!! Great deco and those freakin’ mind bending electric sheep visuals…I caught several poor trancers wide-eyed and paralyzed by looking at it…me being one of them

    A proggy sunrise was the perfect touch and took me back to the pines. Just when I thought things couldn’t get any sweeter, some random assortment of old raver friends appear on the dancefloor.

    Thanks 28th day!!! Now some sleep…..

    Fantastic party, fantastic! There was not even one negative thing about this party. Amazing space, friendly faces, great vibe, beautiful music. Lauryn just killed it! Way to go, girl! I couldn’t stop dancing and smiling the whole time.

    Thank you 28thdays It was my first time at your party and I’m impressed. Thanks a lot.

    superb music, vibes, lighing/deco, and energy all night long!!! The setup and production obviously took alot of effort and planning, and was well worth it!

    Thank you!

    Walked in to Lauryn killing it with some hard twisted stompy mayhem, followed by Christer moving things sideways a notch yet keeping the bodies groovin with vibes and sounds still just as psychedelic and full power – Ibojima then swept things away in a different direction with his own clean crisp intergalactic sounds, more on the morning tip – he is one to watch out for for sure – soome of his stuff sounded like a more futuristic and evolved cousin of Hux Flux – then – although Reefer followed the above mentioned wizardry by dropping the energy levels a bit, the smiles and joyous vibes his intelligent and happy grooves brought to the floor sure made up for it! He brought more than a few people back to life, including myself, who thought they were sapped of energy…a magician for sure…

    There were apparently dual video feeds traded between our party and one at the same time in Boston. Between the glowing crowd, the green lasers, the lights, and the electric sheep projections, ours looked like it was coming from at least another dimension, if not just a different planet! Wow great job Ben and Scott!!

    Music was excellent as was the pro sound system which blasted out each choon powerfully, clean and crispy – that Allen $ Heath mixer 28th day has has got me drooling each tme I see it, and I am sure it’s internal sound card only helped boost the superior sound that night…

    It was refreshing and revitalizing to see true trance spirit embodied in a party – in all it’s potential aspects, with none lacking – at a time when it seems to be hit or miss around here lately….

    @ 28th Day crew – I strongly believe that great parties are only fully manifested when the intent and energy of those contributing is in the right place and frame of reference, and its quite obvious that you guys are doing what is necessary see the old-school powerfully positive spirit be revitalized in NYC!!! For that I, and I am sure MANY others, THANK YOU!!!

    Serioulsly, thanks to all involved for a killer party!

    By the way, I saw WAYYY to many cameras and videocams for people not to post them here!!! what good are pic/vids if u dont share…

    Had a really fun time, great location (got a bit too crowded though,but not nearly as bad as other places sometimes do) Visual projections were amazing, very high quality. Music was nice, especially liked Ibojima, Christer and Lauryn.
    Thank you 28th day! Looking forward to your next party.
