If you haven't already seen 24 Hour Party People, documenting the notorious life of music producer Tony Wilson, and the bands that his label, Factory Records, produced (Joy Division, New Order, etc), go out and rent it right now (and on that note, if you haven't seen the recent Ian Curtis movie, Control, go out and rent it right now). If you have seen it, then maybe you might be as excited as I am about our TriBeCa Grand party tomorrow night, featuring DJ sets by two original Factory Record musicians, Paul Ryder of Happy Mondays, and Martin Moscrop of A Certain Ratio. Also, our friend David Pacho from the Surface to Air crew will be stopping by to DJ, so I'm convinced it will be a really good night.
