Adam Goldstone - RIP, VIP our beloved "mista bitch"


I am stunned and horribly saddened by the untimely death of our beloved Adam Goldstone at Burning Man earlier this week. If you didn't know Adam, he was that extremely natty, brilliant, funny DJ around town. He worked everywhere from Click + Drag to nowhere to Love and the moving party Intervention. He was "mista bitch" on these boards.

He had been a frequent Time Out contributor (and I believe Nightlife Editor) during the last half of the Nineties and remained a tireless proponent of the Creative Night, the small budget, the "in joke".

So many memories: Our unforgettable taxi ride to and participation in the SENSATION protests in 1999 Giuliani New York outside the Brooklyn Museum, dressed to the Nines. My own Last Dance at the closing of Jackie 60, with Adam and Johanna Constantine, in the Versailles Room, to Donna Summer's "Last Dance". Giggling at the "timing gwen" in the front row of City Hall hearings on the Cabaret Laws a few years ago, his cameo as Mr. Goldstone in Jackie 60's demented "What Ever Happened to Gypsy Rose Lee?"

WHEREVER there was a scene, homegrown and witty and most of all INTERESTING, that's where you'd find him. And that's where, I like to think, he'll remain.

Please add your own stories or memories of Adam here. As we get details on his cause of death or memorial services we will leave them here.

RIP, Little Brother.
