The Bunker presents Timeblind at subTonic
The Bunker presents Timeblind at subTonic 107 Norfolk Street 21+, 11p-4a
Timeblind started Polar Bear Club, the first friday party at subTonic, back in 2000. In 2004, he launched the Bunker with Spinoza in the same space. NYC was bumming him out, so he moved to Berlin in mid-2004, leaving the Bunker in the hands of DJ Spinoza. He is back in the city now, and played a great set at the Bunker 4 year anniversary party in January. Timeblind has always been a wildly eclectic DJ, spinning dancehall, jungle, hip-hop, techno, disco, arabic dance music, and lately alot of grime/dubstep. He is also a prolific recording artist, releasing techno 12"s on Probe, Synewave, Missile and Kanzleramt; boundary/genre-free electronica on Orthlorng Musork; dancehall on Shockout; and a dubstep/grime EP on DJ /rupture's Soot label ... all quality output. Tonight, he promises an all techno set for the first time in a very long time. He is the only person who deserves to be the a guest performer for the final Bunker at Tonic.
Yes, it's true, Tonic is closing its doors for good. Tonic has been having financial difficulties for years, and is being evicted from the building for not paying rent for many months. We had an amazing four years in the subTonic basement, hosted a mind-boggling number of amazing guests, and presented tons of incredible sets from residents Spinoza, Timeblind, kleverVice, Movement, Unjust, and Derek Plaslaiko. While we will certainly miss our beloved dirty basement, it's time for a change. Starting Next Friday April 20, we will be moving the Bunker to Luna Lounge in Williamsburg. Luna Lounge has East Village roots (they were a club on Ludlow Street from 1995-2005 before they were priced out of the neighborhood), an amazing EAW sound system, friendly management, cheap drinks, nice big clean bathrooms, and space for large parties. We will present a live hardware set from John Tejada on SATURDAY April 28, and then will be at Luna Lounge every Friday starting in May. The Bunker simply wouldn't exist without the support of all of our fans, and we thank you for standing by us for the past 4+ years, and hope you will follow us across the bridge.
