PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.

If you can't make it to all of the on-going Red Bull Music Academy events, no problem. They've also created a cool video series called "beat:repeat" that celebrates the sounds and people of our little town: New York City. The first of eight clips looks at the Peech Boys' and their 1982 club anthem "Don't Make Me Wait," via an interview with Peech Boy Michael de Benedictus who reminisces about the song and also about legendary Paradise Garage DJ Larry Levan. Other episodes will focus on everything from disco to dance punk to thrash metal and hip hop; there's also interviews with Arthur Baker, Blondie's Chris Stein, Le Tigre's Johanna Fateman and more. Don't forget that the big FREE Larry Levan Street Party is this Sunday, May 11, noon to 6 p.m. on King Street between Varick and Houston. And again, if you can't make it in person, the whole thing will be streamed HERE.
