Verboten is set to celebrate its first birthday in its permanent Williamsburg establishment with a week-long series of events dubbed Verboten 001.
The anniversary festivities kick off with two free sessions of Verboten’s Willkommen Deep House Yoga sessions on March 9 and 10. These sessions will also include special musical performances to further bring together mind, body, and music in Verboten’s wide Control Room. The club will also host a special installment of Wassabassco’s Sin on Heels burlesque show on March 13.
The club has readied a packed schedule of music programming for the anniversary featuring three nights of top performers and residency installments. The club will introduce its new Verboten Live event series with Damian Lazarus & The Ancient Moons on March 12, which also boasts Bedouin and a live performance from PillowTalk. The next night, Carl Craig will bring the latest installment of Detroit Love back to the club, and the noted DJ/producer will be joined by Luciano, Chuck Flask, and Keith Kemp for the party. Finally, Maya Jane Coles has enlisted Lauren Flax and Wild Dark for her MJC & Friends night on Saturday. A special Sunday DJ Brunch on March 15 will wrap up the celebrations and will feature performances from Verboten resident DJs and $1 specials on food and drink.
Additionally, Verboten also plans to launch a membership program for its regular attendees which will offer reduced admission to club nights, purchase rewards, and access to special events and merchandise. More details will be announced soon.
