Review – Dirtybird BBQ 2016 NYC


It's September 11th, the tribute lights are lighting up the NYC skyline and I'm on a ferry across the river heading to Governor's Island.


The Dirtybird BBQ this year had a last minute venue change from it's original stakeout in Brooklyn. Me? I couldn't be happier. This is probably one of the most spectacular views one can have of our amazing city on this somber yet inspiring night.

The lights and production of the show can be seen from the ferry, and as we get closer, the thump from the bass starts to build hype of what's to come of the night. The ferry is surprisingly quick and easy to get to the island, and there's not too much of a hassle getting in at the entrance.

Once inside the venue, there's food, games, drinks and tons of people. There's free carnival games lining the perimeter and the venue extends out onto a man made beach…cool, right? The crowd was in full swing mid afternoon enjoying the music and all the extracurriculars this unique BBQ had to offer, but as the sun sets into night, the crowd fully shifts attention to the Dirtybird lineup.

Shiba San brought an intense set, passing it over to Justin Martin and then Dirtybird founder Claude Vonstroke. Everyone brought their A-game on a Sunday night, with no signs of the crowd having work the next morning. From dropping some old school house to new school techno, we heard it all. The energy didn't die until Claude ended the show.

We don't know what next year will hold for the Dirtybird BBQ, but we're looking forward to it.
