Loft/gallery space on the 11th floor of a building in Tribeca, with a spectacular view of the city? Check.
Open bar? Check.
Cool DJ and album art all over the walls? Check.
All access passes, giving us the chance to have a lengthy and damn funny drunken conversation with Chad Petree (surprisingly, the least emo "emo guy" I've ever met)? Check.
Unbelievable show by Shiny Toy Guns? Check.
All in all a hell of a time.
