Brand New Machine Rocks NYC
If you’re in New York City on a Thursday night and looking for some Jamaican flavoured night life then Brand New Machine at the Happy Endings Lounge in the East Village is the place to be.
BNM is well known to Kingstonians as the long running Wednesday night at Fiction- but creators Steve “Urchin” Wilson and Terrence “Farenheit” Harold have taken it global, with parties in Montego Bay, Houston, Los Angeles and now New York.
BNM NYC is hosted by DJ’s Max Glazer, DJ Autograph, and Whyteboy Chris, who spin a combination of old school reggae and current dancehall, with a little urban flavour added to the mix.
The Happy Ending Lounge is located at 302 Broome Street, between Forsythe and Eldridge. At first glance it appears to be a Chinese massage parlour (which it was originally) complete with original signage, but don’t despair (or perhaps do) as it is in fact one of the most happening spots in the East Village.
Recent BNM guests have included Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange Knowles, Sean Paul, Estelle, Mena Suvari, Selita Ebanks, DJ Engineroom, and yours truly!
