Off The Radar Returns, Nightdrive Shifts News Lounge Into High Gear
These days, I spend Wednesday nights in front of my TV watching new episodes of Top Chef, but that could change as two parties look to provide new mid-week alternatives.
DJ Ray Milian's former Friday night staple, Off the Radar, makes the Wedensday night to switch as it takes over Lido at The Standard from 8 p.m. to midnight. The party, which has been on an extended hiatus, takes pride in introducing patrons to new music while provide a laid-back setting. Milian, along with Danny Ashe and Tom Wareham, will be the resident DJ, but Milian also promises a regular rotation of guest DJs.
In Miami's Upper Eastside, The News Lounge hosts Nightdrive, which promises indie/electro DJ sets from residents DJs R3K+, Treasures and DJPJ. Tonights line up also included Fridays at Vagabond/Poplife DJ Mike Deuce and Jose El Rey. Like Off the Radar, this party starts and ends early, going from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
