Typically, Monday isn't the first day most of us would pick to party; that wasn't the case this week at Villain in Brooklyn. SEEK x Bright x Highsnobiety took over the multi-level venue to host the New York edition of THE OFF party which previously made a stop in Berlin.

An eclectic crowd of the city's most party-dedicated turned up for the festivities and were plied with a steady stream of drinks from the open bar where Hennessy, Hendricks and Jägermeister were served up in unlimited quantities. The latter in particular definitely brought back collegiate memories in the many who seemed to prefer their Jäger in shot form despite bartenders offering a dedicated cocktail.

Even though Monday was also the hectic start to Men's Fashion Week, a game crowd still stayed out well past midnight for live DJ sets by Venus X of GHE20G0TH1K, Rod Evant and Inan Batman, as well as a performance by ATL's Playboi Carti. Fellow Atlanta rapper Rich The Kid even came through in time to hop on stage to assist Carti. Grime emcee Novelist also stopped by to show love as did A$AP Mob's Bari aka Young Lord.

Between sets, Brooklyn rapper Dillon Cooper surprised partiers with an impromptu performance, bringing a crew on stage to turn up with him. Quite a few people also ended up matching in Highsnobiety's limited, custom tee collaboration with PLEASURES. Earlier in the day our staffers took to the streets of SoHo to give away 50 shirts that guaranteed automatic access to the party.

Rod Evant kicked things off with an early DJ set before Venus X took the attention of the progressively more drunk and rowdy crowd. By the time Carti hit the stage, just after midnight, everyone was more than ready to get loose. The rapper enthusiastically performed his way through audience favorites while moving between the stage and the fairly hammered crowd, much to their excitement. Somewhere toward the back an impromptu mosh pit started, and marathon twerk sessions were par for the course as DJs spun everything from classic hip-hop to trap and grime.

Thanks to everyone who came out and sorry for the hangovers. Don't forget to check out some footage of the situation below.
