It wasn’t easy getting out of the house after 11 on a freezing December night, but the Project Logic late set at Blue Note was worth the effort. DJ Logic had a bunch of swingin’ cats sit in who gave the groove a distinctly New Orleanean flavor. The beats chugged on till 3:30am, and by then the tables covered in overpriced drinks had been pushed aside for some seriously illegal dancing (Blue Note doesn’t have a cabaret license.) When we left, the village was covered in the first snow of the season, and in Washington Square Park, giddy NYU kids were running around with the rats.
