Barbarism Begins at Beauty Bar

Every Wednesday night starting in June, Andy Rourke (formerly of the Smiths) and New York DJ, Olé Koretsky, will be manning the decks at Beauty Bar’s flagship location in NYC. In recent months, Rourke and Koretsky have been building a relationship with the small Manhattan venue by getting involved in a series of successful nights featuring guests like Allan Dias (Public Image Ltd), DJ Ash, Michael T (Rated X), and Will Sergeant (Echo & the Bunnymen). Party goers can expect a lot more of the same, but, on a weekly basis, and may be able to see other familiar faces like Brazilian Girls’ Jesse Murphy, DJ Alexander Technique, Paul Ryder of the Happy Mondays, and Sex Pistol Glen Matlock.

Revered bassist and song craftsman, Rourke has been honing his DJ skills for over six years, evolving considerably since the first North American DJ tour of 2004 with former band mate Mike Joyce. Moving across genres with fluidity, Rourke’s sense of rhythm and melody become apparent. It will be no Haçienda, but hints of electro and classic dance cuts will be bleeding through the rock and post-punk oriented DJ sets thanks to Rourkey’s Mancunian roots and Ole’s background as club DJ and remix producer.

Free admission, an attractive crowd, affordable drinks and weekly drink specials, will round the evening off nicely. The party kicks off Wednesday June 10th. Plan for a hot summer in New York!
