DJ Morgan Page @ M1NT
Compared to the likes of Unico and Bar Rouge, it ain’t often that M1NT does bookings. But when they do, they do it right. Head down for some none too shabby club beats and listen to the song below by Morgan Page, DJ and Producer. He was nominated for a Grammy for it. It’s fucking good. If you’re not a M1NT member, make sure to book ahead.

Some Open Studios @ Swatch Art Peace Hotel
One open studio will be hosted by a Russian artist named, Evgeny Bondarenko.

The other open studio will be hosted by Alec Von Bargen, whose latest photo series of female portraits is entitled, “Veritas Feminae“.
