NYC nightlife institution Better Days (1972-1990) returns for one night to Analog BKNY on Saturday, October 15th.
Music by Bruce Forest.
Red Bull Music Academy, Disco Music, Love Injection and Better Days Facebook Page are good places to start if you don’t know about the magic that happened at Better Days (Resident DJs Tee Scott & Bruce Forest; guest DJs David Morales, Kenny Carpenter, Robert Clivilles, Shep Pettibone, Steve Thompson, Jon Jon Hernandez, Andre Collins & John Hall).
The party will honor the release of Life and Death on the NYC Dancefloor (1980-1983), a book by Tim Lawrence. There will be limited copies of it to purchase at the party. Tim will also be in the flesh signing them, so bring yours if you have it already.Yeah, yeah…a book…I’m a geek. I know…
Back to the MUSIC, right. Try this…3 Hours of Better Days (“A Better Days set…..none of this was planned. I hit “record” and played for three hours. Any flaws are mine alone……,” says Bruce). I personally love his Better Days Spotify Playlist.
Passionate as heck about his craft, Bruce was in checking out the upgrades to the SBS Slammer at Analog BKNY that will be ready just in time for the Better Days event.
IMVHO, Bruce Forest is a model citizen in the music business and in the smaller community of dance music. He’s diplomatic and kind unlike too many people in the biz who have been around as long or had the amount of success he’s had.
Ya heard of Loleatta Holloway? His Loleatta

How about Do It Properly? Built live at Better Days then re-created in the studio.
“There’ll be better days ahead,” as Vernessa Mitchell hollers. That’s for sure. Saturday, October 15th at Analog BKNY.
