Perhaps it’s due to the wilt-inducing heat wave that took place a few days ago -- or maybe it’s just a coincidence -- but some of the Island’s hot-weather hot spots are doing “Xmas in July” parties this week, events that lean on Kriss Kringle for theme and inspiration. Here are two solid choices, one in each of LI's counties:

On Saturday, July 20, the Sound Waves party is set to take place at the Montauk Beach House (55 South Elmwood Ave, Montauk, 631-668-2112, and the affair has indeed been making a lot of “waves,” as it is to see a turn from alternative/new wave legend Vince Clarke as a DJ.

Even if you didn't spend the 1980s dedicated to synthpop, it is very likely you've heard – or danced to – a track or more involving the talents of legendary musician Vince Clarke.
His name isn't exactly a household word, but chances are you're familiar with acts such as Depeche Mode, Yaz (or Yazoo) and Erasure, especially if you grew up hanging out at the many alternative dance clubs that...Read more »
Anyone who’s been currently cutting loose on dance floors can tell you – the beats are as fast and furious as ever.
Dubstep, electro and progressive house are the usual subgenres today’s DJs choose to spin, with most of that music previously whipped up by a producer in a studio. But if you like your jams performed live, in classic style, Aura in East Meadow has a bash rolling out on Friday,...Read more »
It happens every Saturday night: people from around the Island head for Huntington Village.

On Saturday, July 20, the right move will be to go heavy — very heavy — on the makeup.
