VICE turned 20 on Friday, December 5th, 2014 and they celebrated with a massive party at Brooklyn Navy Yard’s Duggal Greenhouse with Andrew hosting the blowout event! He even opened the show with “Party Hard,” sang Happy Birthday with Ghostface Killah and closed the show with a cover of the Sex Pistols “Anarchy In The UK.” It was all backed by the supergroup houseband led by Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and included Andrew Wyatt from Miike Snow, Pauli the PSM, Jack Lawrence, the bassist from the Raconteurs, and Ben Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan
The evening featured a ton of musical performances in addition to Andrew by all sorts of very special guests, including Lil’ Wayne, Scarlett Johansson, Karen O, Jarvis Cocker, Raekwon, Black Lips, Pussy Riot, and more!
And if that wasn’t enough, the whole evening was filmed and recorded and starting tonight VICE will be putting up a bunch of these unique performances onto their YouTube channel so you can see what happened.
