Tribeca Grand Hotel, 2 Avenue of the Americas bet Walker and White Sts, NYC, 212-519-6600, 10pm, www.myspace.com/thexx

Spank Loft Party

The kids behind NYC fay art zine Spank Zine are releasing issue #15 tonight. We think it’s called Beautiful Pschedelic Implosion, but that could be just the name of the party. Anyway, resident DJs Will and Sean B will be there, with guests DJ Gant Johnson and the amazing Ana Matronic of The Scissor Sisters. Hosted by performance and multimedia arist Muffinhead.
