Warper Party NYC

Recently, New York-area Live fans have been given the opportunity to show off their performance chops at Warper parties--free events that feature a mix of Ableton Live-based headliners and budding users. The monthly events, conceived of and hosted by DJ Shakey and Moldover, have been running strong since January of 2006.

By showcasing a wide variety of Live users with their "open laptop" format, Warper parties offer a unique perspective on the performance styles of many different artists, providing an experience that's as educational as it is enjoyable!

Warper parties are held at the Botanica Bar in New York City. Detailed information about future events (including "open laptop" signup information) is available at
