BLACK REBEL MOTORCYCLE CLUB AT THE ELECTRIC ROOM



One of the closing rituals of New York Fashion weeks of late has become Nur Khan’s Sessions, an invitation-only series of live Rock N’ Roll performances held at the nightlife impresario’s various venues. Intimate concerts by well-known bands in a small space are always a treat, provided you’re able to see over the crowd. This becomes more of an issue when the audience is packed with six-foot models, as was the case at Electric Room last night. Retro garage rockers Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, who had also performed at the John Varvatos/Converse party earlier in the week played a 45 minute set from a makeshift stage while the high cheek-boned set sipped cocktails from the DeLeon Tequila sponsored open bar. The party, which was co-hosted by “tattoo-inspired lifestyle intimates” brand Sweetly Inked brought an exclusive crowd of about a hundred beautiful people to the louche space below the Dream hotel, including downtown types and frequent Nur collaborators like artist Harif Guzman, who held court in a corner table, as well as the Civetta siblings, milliner Gigi Burris, and nightlife designer/writer/fixture Steve Lewis, who actually appeared to be smiling. The vibe of Fashion Week culmination was perfectly captured by Nur himself when took to the mic to announce that the band and crowd alike would “rock the f*ck out- and then we’re all going to sleep for a week.”
