[Funk Food was formally known as Tanzmittwoch]
Quickly earning the reputation for being the most important Wednesday night for the masses to seriously get-down, this weekly basement party, hosted in the Nachtcafe (the newly gentrified Wirr Untergrund), is where creatives, workplace warriors and dancers of the city from all walks of life, come to play. The crowd is a beautiful representation of New York City soul and Vienna home-grown urban style. Expect a liberal use of Hip Hop, Chicago / NY house music, soul classics, disco and just about anything with a serious beat and beyond, with a selection of very special guest DJs on a weekly and monthly basis - this recently renovated basement space, with a new music program and sound engineered accordingly, makes this budding Wednesday night gathering, perhaps one of the city's best kept secrets.
Additionally we will show1 or 2 Blaxploitation movies every Wednesday.
The Nachtcafe program will feature Dr.Gre, Groovekracker, Zuzee (Waxos), Dan B. and VIE's own Brooklyn expat DJ / radio host Joe-Joe (Digital Konfusion Mixshow, FM4) as residents spinning a very "fierce" New York set of everything from Hip Hop to Funk to Breakbeats and house classics that should leave you walking away with a smile and "gagging" for more. Keep your eye out on this one, cause this weekly event could soon be the illest party in VIE - period.
