SoBro Rocks!

SoBro just got a little more lively, a little more hip and I'm sure a LOT more exciting for the 21-and-up crowd! From the guys behind the Bronx Underground comes a monthly dance party scene in Mott Haven that is attracting lots of attention not only from Bronxites in the know, but also from our neighbors to the south. Yes, Manhattan music lovers now have the Bronx on their radar, thanks to the Revolution! Party, a new event taking place at The Bruckner Bar & Grill each month. A Revolution! Party is the place to be if you are searching for fresh new music, a hip atmosphere and prices that Manhattan hasn't seen in a full decade or two!

Not only will DJs Cindy Kim and Adam Underground keep everyone happy with a mixture of 80s, new wave, rock, 90s, electro, punk and much more, but Revolution! will be bringing you live music each month. Check out the sound of two acts from their August event: Fire and Reason and The Scene. (Editor's Note: NSFW - for audio volume, not boobies...sorry)

According to organizer, Anita Colby: "Produced by a collective of Bronx native musicians and artists with a vision to mix live bands, art, nightlife and Bronx authenticity; the Revolution! Party exploded onto the scene this July and will continue with its third event on Friday, September 26th at Bruckner Bar & Gallery (1 Bruckner Blvd on the corner of 3rd avenue – under the 3rd avenue bridge) in Mott Haven, The Bronx.

This month's party will feature the first live performance ever by William Control; Aiden frontman Wil Francis' new electro/new wave sideproject + NYC punk band Kissy Kamikaze + DJ sets by Adam Underground, Cindy Kim and Wil Francis."

We know that this is the type of energy that can help keep the South Bronx on the revitalization track that is all the buzz in the real estate world. The Boogiedowner wishes you guys good luck - we'll be keeping our eye (and ears) on you!

Getting There: Take the #6 Subway to 138th Street, walk south on Alexander Avenue to Bruckner Blvd and take a right. (And maybe stop in at Alexander's Cafe for a pre-party drink!)
