Halloween Parties in New York City - October 31 2018

Lavish and unique parties are a part of New York City nightlife culture, and Halloween night is no exception.  With so many celebrities and cultural icons living in New York City, Halloween night is the time to see them all in some of the best costumes in town.  LVMH group's own tequila company Volcan De Mi Tierra hosted a party with New York's young urban tastemakers, and Heidi Klum had a Party City sponsored Halloween party at Levo with many recognizable attendees.  There really isn't any place in the world that can match the high energy ambitious social scene of New York City.

On Air Fest 2018 - Wythe Hotel - Williamsburg, Brooklyn March 1 - 4, 2018

The On Air Fest debuted at the Wythe Hotel in Williamsburg Brooklyn on March 1 - 4, 2018, bringing together innovative voices in podcasts and music. Themes in this year's event explored storytelling and creativity in sound.  

Some of the lineup and presenters this year included DJ Stretch Armstrong, Musician Meshell Ndegeocello, director Brendan Baker of Wolverine, Jaime Morton (of My Dad Wrote a Porno), Surface Magazine designer Simonetta Nieto, podcaster Debbie Millman of Design Matters, and curator Matthew Yokobosky of the David Bowie exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum. Miho Hatori, formerly of Cibbo Matto also performed prior to the opening day as well.

This event was an opportunity for podcasters, artists, designers, musicians, DJ, and others in the industry to get together and discuss their journeys, inspirations, and challenges of creating great work of impact on their audiences.

Makers of high end headphones and audio equipment Sennheiser also hosted a "Future of Audio" Suite to demo their portable podcasting headphones and amplifiers.  If you're starting out on podcasting and are looking to make your episodes more 360 degree experiential from a sound standpoint, we highly recommend their Ambeo Smart Headset!  You can record podcasts anywhere on the go and it does a great job of capturing any audio in the background you are looking to include.

Check out their site to get info on next year's event, which you don't want to miss if you have an audience to reach online through the audio medium.
