This Saturday, BangOn! makes its triumphant return with "Creatures of the Night" - a slinky, animalistic warehouse party happening right here in Jefftown  the heart of Bushwick!

We're big fans of the party crew, who organize hipster-meets-burner themed urban raves every few months- including some we've covered: NYE 2015, NYE 2014, Arcade Fire's Warehouse Show, Warehouse of Horrors, and Easter Island.  We rapid-fired some questions at thefly-ass-hell promoters of the freakshow about their backgrounds and what to look forward to this weekend...

What to expect at this weekend's party? Well, for starters-- "giant 3D mapped animal heads, glowworm cave chill-area, outdoor silent disco with dueling djs, aerial circus performers, a zipline, and 5-ton crane flying a UFO over the entire dance floor." PLUS, live music from SNRBNDr. FRESCHSleepy & BooAKKITreehausTechPatEelrackBeatkittyTrotterDirty Looks, and The Golden Pony.
