Overcome the February/March gloominess with some dance endorphins in your system! Here are five fantasy and body-stimulating parties in Bushwick and beyond that you need to check out!

#1 Abstract: The Largest Body Painting Party (Saturday, 11PM, $15-20) – SOLD OUT!!

Because Bushwick is a land of dreamers, parties like this one happen here… The invite reads, “imagine you’re in a warehouse decorated to the finest detail in abstract art. Bodies dancing around you draped in the most beautiful and creative body paint designs witnessed by the naked eye. Music that raises the hairs all over your body, leaving them dancing wildly to the sounds of electrifying dancing music. Your senses lost in a trance, kidnapped by the beauty of art, forever enticed by the pounding drums, and feet. You’re in a new world.” Do we need to add more?

Video art, live performances, DJs, GENTLE JOUSTING “the sequel to sister project LICKER LICENSE, is a touring 1-hour video program of male artists exploring the pleasures and devices of masculinity, machismo and sex/iness.”
