A few weeks ago, a frequently demure Lower East Side crowd turned up for an unusual performance in the ALIFE Sessions series of shows, held at their flagship Rivington Street location. Babes bounced on bleachers and floor space as Afrojack dropped earthquaking synth beats in the boutique’s relatively small backyard space. Following the likes of Jadakiss, Pusha T, and most recently ScHoolboy Q, the DJ’s performance represented a stark change of format that no one seemed to mind. The Dutch-born, Vegas nightclub-favorite stopped by NYC as part of a tour supporting his Def Jam debut Forget The World, and attracted such a crowd that roofs of neighboring buildings were full of onlookers dancing in sync with those stories below. Don’t miss the next ALIFE Session.
