BTW, if anyone is looking for something to do, Sully is having K1W1's birthday party/benefit tonight.
For those of you that don't know him, he's a dj who has been part of the NY house and techno scene for many years. He got into a horrible car accident earlier this year and lost an arm. His medical bills are piling up and our dear friend still needs a prosthesis and lots of physical therapy. He's a truly inspiring person who made his way back to the decks in only a few months and is rocking harder than ever. Please come by Sully to help him celebrate his birthday and show some support making a difference in our friend's life. I'll be there on the early part of the night, hope to see some of you there!
From the event page:
There is a special evening about to happen and your presence is requested!! Its more then just a party, it is a night that will be life changing and mean the world to a very special person. Grant Riddell (aka) DJ K1W1 will be celebrating the birthday he has been waiting for...
Not only is it a very special date, it is a very special year.
As many of you know, this past spring, K1W1 was involved in a tragic car accident that left him with many broken bones and an amputated left arm that the doctors were not able to reattach. It has been a tough a year no doubt. There has been a lot of pain, there have been a lot of hard times. But that did not stop our dear friend at all! Over the past 8 months he has made an amazing recovery and is back on the decks doing what he does best and following his dream. The native New Zealander, K1W1, has spent the last 12 years devoting his love and talent to the NY underground dance music industry. He is truly one of kind and when K1W1 is on the decks, there is never a dull moment. His music is soulful, alive and full of surprises! Always aims to please, and a crowd pleaser he is! Although this year has brought its trials and turbulations, "challenge is what makes life interesting, overcoming those challenges is what makes life meaningful." He is overcoming his challenges and is a true model of determination and survival. But surviving without an arm is tough. He is in need of a prosthesis. Thanks to the beautiful support of Sullivan Room, all collections at the door on the evening of 11-11-11 will be going directly towards financial expenses for a prosthetic arm for our dear K1W1! It will be the most meaningful birthday present he could ever hope for. So friends, please come to celebrate, support, laugh, rejoice, but most of all, hear the music... and DANCE!
Thank you for your love and support.

See you there
