If you walked by Milk Studios on 15th Street close to the West Side Highway last Saturday you might have spied a line that snaked all the way down the block. But if you didn’t have the proper wrist band, the body guards would not relent. About 2,500 people were invited by Intel, Vice Magazine, and executives at Milk Studios for an all day bash. Call it an arty rave on many floors. Interpol, Sleigh Bells, the Rapture, M.I.A., and Gang Gang Dance performed. Die Antwoord — a trip hop guy with a high-pitched girl singer — turned actor Josh Hartnett on so much that he wanted to body surf. Also in the house were actress Kirsten Dunst and a slew of kids who snacked on Pop Burgers and took in some high tech art installations.
Check out the one I shot for Hudson above where you could walk into a pyramid and have your face morphed into a light glob on the ceiling. In the next few days, I’ll have out-takes from the Milk party, which lasted on all eight floors and the roof until 2 a.m.
