A downtown club's slightly more adult reinvention

People reinvent themselves all the time, but it's usually to steal money from their brother, Dane Cook. For a nightclub that'll hopefully never let the real one in, and has also changed quite a bit, get to Eve.

Eve's commandeered the old White Room and completely overhauled it: music now targets a crowd slightly older than the dearly departed indie kid summer camp, and they've opened the space by ripping out the cabanas and the wall between the courtyard and performance room, and brought in a canopy roof, fieldstone bar, and a Dynacord sound system called Cobra II -- also a pending Stallone flick about a man who refused to follow the bureaucracy of his retirement community, and has a bitchin' walker. The two set nights so far are Wed & Fri, with the former entitled "Greasy Spoon" (from party producers Iam Yourvillain), which includes DJs Kitty Glitter and Le Spam, bands like Ketchy Shuby, and grub by Gastropod and other food trucks, as well as drink specials like the $6 shot of Jameson/PBR tallboy Dirty Napkin, which really doesn't sound too sanitary. Friday brings the Veni Vidi Vici Party, which delivers an unpredictable open format that might mix LCD Soundsystem, The Beatles, and Mariah, and'll rock rotating themes like "Wedding Night", "Circus Freaks", and tonight's event, the "December Babies Throwdown", which unlike the Muppet Babies Throwdown, won't make everybody Rowlf.

They're also gonna hit you with some live world music on Saturdays, including bookings like Latin Grammy winner Alex Cuba, Luis Enrique, Washed Out, and Big Gigantic, also the size of your bank account, if you're related to Dane Cook and've recently visited the county courthouse.
