Scenesters decamp from Williamsburg to invade this perenially packed and very art-damaged East Village rock & roll scenefest, starring the new wave of stylists, photographers, budding rock stars, performance artists, DJs and hangers-on centered around filthster shutterbug Ryan McGinley, actor Leo Fitzpatrick and the highly influential street style magazine Vice, the bible of the skankoisie. Lit is their clubhouse and don’t you forget it. Celebrity DJs spin in the cramped basement while scruffy Strokes lookalikes swap gravy with low-banged vagrant-chic girls dolled up in the jolie-laide look of heroine Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. It’s all very Larry Clark, plus there’s an in-house art gallery.
