As 2017 comes to end in less than a few days, everyone starts their annual ritual of prepping their New Year's Eve resolution and their livers for the ultimate New Year's Day hangover. Beaten and battered by yet another 365 days, Magnetic Mag is here to remind everyone we are not alone. This weekend, New York City is going to be awash with many New Year's Eve events and we had some of the best acts to catch this weekend give us their New Year's resolutions as well as their best hangover cures for the day after. You can catch, Behrouz, Dance Spirit, Dory, Honey Dijon, Lee Burridge, Eagles and Butterflies, M.A.N.D.Y., Mayssam, Return + Patrischa, Steve Bug and Thugfucker at Cityfox's New Year's Eve party this weekend!
New Year's Resolution: Focus on building my brand Do Not Sit On The Furniture and label Do Not Sit On The Furniture Recordings and taking them to the next level. Also interacting more with positive energy people and spreading love through my music!
Best Hangover Cure: A good session in the steam room and a bloody mary.
Dance Spirit A.K.A. Christopher Mohn & Reagen Denius
CM's New Year's Resolution: My New Year’s resolution is to love more, do more and be more. 2017 was a year of new beginnings and 2018 will be a year to keep building art, music, and living up to the highest potentials of my positive self. There are a lot of people lost, hurting, and depressed right now, and the world needs love, NOW. When you can step outside of your survival emotions and retain inner peace, the world and its problems can lead you to compassion instead of anger. You realize that people are dealing with a lot of hurt and pain and the ability to recognize and act becomes easy, almost like picking up trash. Once you pick up one piece off the ground you realize it is everywhere, and the ability to give love becomes limitless.
CM's Best Hangover Cure: Not drinking. (not very rockstar I know)
RD's New Year's Resolution: My New Year’s resolution is to spread love wherever I can, and be the best person I possibly can, and strive to be better than the last day, every day, and encourage everyone I meet to be the best version of themselves as well. And spread love like a wildfire, in the collective heart of humanity. Also convince Elon Musk to create teleportation, wormhole technology, and blanket the earth with Wi-Fi.
RD's Best Hangover Cure: Binge watching Rick & Morty with a nice fat joint. Wubbalubbadubdub!
New Year's Resolution: More calm, more focus
Best Hangover Cure: The best hangover cure for me is always a homemade bowl of noodle soup, made with good quality beef chuck and loaded with chiles, Sichuan peppercorns, and other aromatics. You can throw everything into the slow cooker (add the noodles later) to simplify things. It's head-clearing and gets the endorphins going as well. Depending on how much you eat, you may need a nap afterward, but that helps the hangover too!
Eagles and Butterflies
