Bjork’s DJ Set Above The Auto Parts Store in Bushwick

I only found out about Björk‘s Rites Of Spring: A Benefit For Haiti DJ set in Bushwick last week, but before I even got the chance to pick up tickets at Record Grouch the tickets had already sold out. On Sunday I spent about 4 hours trying to find tickets online until an hour before showtime a fellow Bjork fan luckily responded to one of my pleas.

We arrived at about 9PM as Björk was hanging out behind the turntables gearing up to begin her set. The venue “Above The Auto Parts Store” was indescribably hot, but regardless fans packed in to get a glimpse of the one and only Björk. I was prepared to be at the venue for the long haul thinking Björk would be last, but she thankfully was second up on deck. DJ selections included a lot of obscure Asian and Middle Eastern house music, most notably including a cover of 2 Unlimited‘s No Limit, along with Major Lazer/Crooker‘s Jump Up!

Seeing Björk DJ tonight in my neighborhood was incredibly special and the icing on top of an already awesome weekend! If you were unable to partake in the charity event be sure to visit  The American Red Cross to see how you can pitch in.
