Rok, no longer around the clok

Contrary to what Apollo 440 claimed in 1999, you can, in fact, stop the Rok. We’ll give you a minute while you grudgingly go to YouTube to look up 13-year-old, lesser-known big-beat singles.

Back with us? Fantastic. The Angel Management Group-operated New York-New York club, which launched in August 2008 to Katy Perry-graced grand-opening hoopla, will be ending its run come April 1. In its stead, the space will be used as a live-music venue opening sometime in spring. Which, considering it’s already March, means either a lightning-fast turnaround, or else the words “Rok Vegas” crossed out in Sharpie on all the cocktail napkins at the new place.

EDC to the NYC

By Jason Scavone

Electric Daisy Carnival is finally getting its spot on the East Coast. Prior to the big throwdown June 8-10 at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway, EDC will make a stop in New York City on May 19-20. A venue hasn’t been officially revealed yet, but it can’t be Yankee Stadium—the Bronx Bombers are home that weekend. Citi Field, home of the Mets, is a possibility. Bamboozle, the Skrillex-headlined festival the same weekend, was at the Meadowlands last year but is departing East Rutherford, N.J., to go south to Asbury Park. Hmm.
