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!
