Live: Ghost Beach play Pianos tomorrow in New York City
Indie electronic pop duo Ghost Beach are closing out their 2011 tomorrow night in Gotham City with a show at 8pm sharp at Pianos on the Lower East Side.

Here’s a tip for the do-it-yourself crowd: Go to your computer’s Start menu, and either go to “run” or just search for “cmd.” Open it up, and type in “ping [website address],” like so:
Once you have the IP for a website, all you really need to do is enter it like you would a normal URL and hit enter/press go. Typing in “188.8.131.52” should bring you to the front page of AO3, for example, just as typing “184.108.40.206/dashboard” should bring you straight to your Tumblr dashboard. Since we’re obviously bracing for the worst case scenario which would involve you not being able to access Tumblr regularly, you should, like, save this list, I guess.
This past Friday night’s Girls & Boys party at Webster Hall featured a headlining set from Mad Decent moombahton-er Dillon Francis and supporting D.J. sets from Alvin Risk, Skism and newcomer TJani, all throwing their best sets together and taking the sold-out crowd to newer and greater heights from start to finish. Definitely one of our favorite nights out in quite some time. Thanks also to residents Alex English and RekLES for hanging out the whole night, even if they didn’t do much D.J.’ing while we were there.
