Free Blood Oscillations 1

Sold out, they said. And we say, thank you! New York City packed into (Le) Poisson Rouge on a frigid evening this past Saturday to catch self-titled‘s Oscillations party, featuring performances by Free Blood and School of Seven Bells with DJ sets by The Juan Maclean and Justin Miller. The venue was crammed. The fog was dense. The dancing was abundant. The drinks were spilled. And the acts were fantastic. Special thanks to Ghostly and DFA for helping make this evening happen and to (Le) Poisson Rouge for totally understanding when we just needed to get one more (promise!) person in on our guestlist.
