we bite!

10.2003 - 10.2006


Born off the coattails of Electroclash, We Bite! was a weekly party aimed for a more rock'n roll attitude. Nestled downtown in the basement of Happy Ending on Tuesday night, it was a dead bet that this night would be filled a "locals-only" mix of friends and scenesters....but that almost happened. After a few months, this night garnered international attention for it's sleazy, rock'n roll hangout filled with music-minded rock'n rollers and LES artists.

Soon, Tuesday night became Saturday night in NYC. Everywhere was a Tuesday indie party and Happy Ending was pulsing with touring artists doing guest DJ sets from Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party, Interpol, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Rapture, and reputable DJs such as Felix Da Housecat and Tommie Sunshine.

Sadly, co-collaborator, Stephen Lockdown passed away right after being named"Best DJ Duo" with Spencer at the First Annual Nightlife Awards. After 3 solid years for amazing party moments, We Bite! was put to rest in honor of Stephan Lockdown.
