THE MOTHERBOARDS NYC are a trusted alternative source of information on NYC clubs, performers, night culture and history. Our members include active and former participants in alternative NYC nightlife from the 1970s to all tomorrow's parties. "The Mboards" were founded in 2001 by Nightlife Empress CHI CHI VALENTI as a replacement for her experimental nightclub MOTHER (1996-2000). This is our 4.0 iteration as of late 2015 - stay tuned!

NYC Nightclub History

Thought you Nightclub History fanatics would enjoy seeing this - one of the climactic events for the great new Tim Lawrence book Life and Death on the New York Dancefloor 1980-1983. It happened last night in a packed theater at the Museum of Modern Art and is now up on YouTube. Our own Johnny Dynell joined Glenn O'Brien, Fab Five Freddy, Ann Magnuson, Michael Holman and Patti Astor for this deep discussion moderated by Tim L.
