#Offline‘s weekly celebration of music bid farewell and played its final note in full style last night. Over the past nine months, the incomparable Q-Tip and 45 vinyl game changer Natasha Diggs have graced the patrons of Output with nostalgic gems after gems. And legends have guest starred at the night as well, including the likes of Grandmaster Flash, DJ Spinna, and Funk Master Flex, to name just a few.

From the booming sound system, to the varying spectrum of partygoers, you would never know it was a Wednesday night. And if you’ve ever been to #Offline before, you know you’ve always left feeling damn good. Wednesday never felt so good.

If you’re in the know, you know that #Offline’s Wednesday night party featuring live sets with Tribe Called Quest‘s front man Q-Tip and Natasha Diggs plus special guests is a party not to be missed. And if you’re really in the know, you know that #Offline was the place to be last night to witness legendary Grandmaster Flash kill it on the decks, proving he is the definitive master of the ones and twos.

Old school hip hop bodes well at the Brooklyn-based venue Output where its dress code is “Brooklyn is the new black.” The venue, with two dance floors, two full bars, and a dope outdoor space is the first dance club in Williamsburg and it prides itself on being as real as it gets. There is no bottle service and you won’t find a barrage of cameras as distractions. Instead you’ll witness a communal space where love of music and intimacy with the resident and guest DJs supersedes love of hype. The venue is so real that in the small chance you leave behind one of your valuables, you can write their lost and found at ilostmyshit (at) outputclub.com.

On Saturday, August 29th – what would have been Michael Jackson’s 51st birthday – fans of the King of Pop gathered at New York City’s NOKIA Theatre Times Square for Q-Tip Presents: “Long Live the King! A Birthday Celebration for Michael Jackson.”

The crowd danced the night away to never-before-heard remixes of Michael Jackson’s hits, as well as rare video footage from the Motown and Sony vaults. Joining Q-Tip onstage to DJ were special guests DJ Spinna and Mark Ronson. At one point, Quincy Jones called in to say a few words to the audience. Other celebrities in attendance included Solange Knowles, Marsha Ambrosius, Grandmaster Flash, DJ Premier and Anthony Anderson.
