UFO Factory Re-Opens Its Doors This Weekend

This Friday night, UFO Factory will re-open its doors after being closed for over a year. In the summer of 2017, the nearby construction of the Elton Park apartments and mixed use building caused extreme damage to UFO and its foundation, so much so that the venue was forced to close its doors. Immediately, fans of the club rallied behind UFO and against the nearby developer, Soave Enterprises. Now, just over a year later, UFO is still standing, it's just surrounded on three sides by a new building. The important thing is, it's still standing and the doors will be open once again.

The venue is back and better than ever and they are ready to celebrate their re-opening this weekend. Looking at UFO's schedule, the party isn't stopping anytime soon either! They have great shows lined up for the foreseeable future. But, it all starts this Friday night, October 26th with PROTOMARTYR, Deadbeat Beat and Double Winter. Cover for this show is $15 and doors are set to open at 9 p.m.

Then, on Saturday night, its all about Motown and Soul at the NY Night Train Soul Clap and Dance Off with DJ Jonathan Toubin. This edition of the dance party is Halloween themed, so costumes are encouraged. Cover for the party is $15 and tickets can be purchased in advance here. There will be a $100 cash prize for the best dancer, so no matter what costume you decide to wear, make sure you have your dancing shoes on!

Sunday, karaoke will return to UFO Factory and so will Laika Dog! Laika Dog will start serving up their delicious dogs and tots beginning at Noon and their re-opening party runs until 10 p.m. As always, they will have meat and vegan options, you can get more info on the menu here. At 8 p.m. the karaoke starts too! So grab some dinner at Laika Dog, then stay and sing your heart out. For all of the details on karaoke, click here.

The rest of the week of full of a ton of fun events too! Monday night, Prude Boys, Jenny & Jackie, and Werewolf Jones will hit the stage. Tuesday night, the MC50 party moves to UFO after the recording session at Third Man, for the official after party. On Halloween, you can party the night away with Something Cold. Then, Craig Brown, John Salvage, and Eliza Godfrey help you head into the weekend on Thursday night. The party keeps going into next weekend and on and on forever.

So, make sure you make it out to UFO Factory as soon as you can for one of these great shows. But, don't worry, they're not going anywhere anytime soon.
