After a couple of years on the road, the New York Night Train Soul Clap and Dance-Off becomes a monthly NYC party once again! The legendary shindig started out monthly third Saturdays at Glasslands in 2007, moved to the Brooklyn Bowl in 2012, and settled in at Market Hotel in 2016 just before the venue’s closure left the party homeless… While there’s a Clap nearly every week somewhere in dozens of markets internationally the last couple of years, the world’s most popular and prolific touring soul party only rears its head in its home turf for big events like March’s 10th Anniversary Revue with Irma Thomas, Archie Bell, et al, or July’s Madison Square Park edition with Ural Thomas. Glasslands proprietors Rami Haykal and Jake Rosenthal reached out to New York Night Train soul proprietor Jonathan Toubin when they were finally ready to open their 1000+ capacity multi-room Bushwick mega-venue Elsewhere. Together the entities agreed to reunite and bring one of the 21st Century’s most iconic parties back into regular rotation on a local level. Every month features three rooms of bands and DJs, a 60s soul vinyl dance with JonathanToubin and the New York Night Train Shadow Dancers, and the Midnight $100 Dance Contest.Join us for the first monthly kick off party!Tickets on this tier are $10 from 10:30pm on - not including the early show.
