Great point re: atomization of media. But the parties were cool and semi-exclusive, in the sense they were ticketed events that sold out.

BYT had organizing power. The Hemerlein shows were cool, and it gave a chance for alternative acts to shine. I remember going to a lot of cool, unique showings: minor art exhibits, Indian music dance parties, food events, and more. You also saw familiar faces and it did feel like a tangible scene or moment in time.
