3 Reasons You Should Check Out Politik At LAVO Tonight!


If you are in NYC and looking for a high-energy EDM show tonight (and why wouldn’t you be?), we HIGHLY suggest checking out Politik at LAVO. In case you have been living under a rock and need some convincing, we have put together three reasons (although there are SO many) why you won’t regret catching his show tonight.

1. His shows are unlike the rest


In a music scene that is currently over saturated with DJ’s, you can’t help but feel the unique flare that Politik brings to every set he plays. A true music connoisseur, Politik is aware that preforming isn’t just about what you play, but how you play it. Being able to feel a crowd and cater to their vibes, he is able to a put on a show that is expertly designed to appease club patrons. Who doesn’t want to spend an evening listening to music that feels like it was made specifically for you and how you’re feeling?

2. He Mixes Things Up and Keeps It Fresh


Not one to rely solely on spinning Top 40 hits, Politik makes sure to switch things up and has been known to scratch classic records and even some rock. Just when you think you know where the show is headed, he throws in a refreshing surprise, that keeps the crowd alive and on their toes.

3. He’s Been Mixing Beats Since He Was A Yongster


The 25-year old, LA native received starter DJ equipment from his mom when he was only 12-years old. That’s some serious dedication to the craft! Politik has been interested in producing music way before EDM reached the height of success it is experiencing right now. His career is that of conviction and passion – it’s not a fad to him. When you see his show, you see his dedication.

If you are looking to get lost in the music tonight, make sure to check him out at LAVO. If you want to book bottle service to accompany the night, make sure to check us out and download the SURV app!

Best Ways To Beat Your 4th Of July Hangover



So, you’ve made the most of your 4th of July long weekend and now you need to feel like a human being again. While there is no instant hangover cure-all (aside from avoiding alcohol…. but what fun is that?), we have put together a few tips that will certainly ease your pain. Now, if only we had a remedy for the back-to-work blues…


1. Drink Water

This will be even more beneficial if you start your water game the night before. We know that after a good night out, consuming more liquid is the last thing you will want to do – BUT, your head and stomach will thank you the next day. If you simply cannot (for various reasons) get water into you the night before, do it first thing in the morning. While this won’t cure your hangover right away, it will certainly relieve your pain as the day drags on.  Rehydrating leaves you more equipped to tackle those nasty next-day symptoms.

2. Ginger or Peppermint Tea

We know you want to reach for that cup of Joe, but you may want to reconsider. A hot cup of ginger or peppermint tea are perfect for soothing hangover-induced nausea and stomachaches. Also, won’t it be great to drink something that isn’t red, white or blue? Your eyes will be as grateful as your insides.


3. Coffee and Aspirin

If you aren’t convinced by tea’s soothing power and you need that jolt of caffeine to get your day started, at least pair it with the classic pain reliever that is aspirin. The caffeine from coffee and the anti-inflammatory ingredients of aspirin (amongst other painkillers), react against the chemical compounds of alcohol and will give you that sweet relief that you seek.


4. Eating Foods High in Potassium and Salt

Since potassium and salt are good sources of preventing further hydration (a.k.a keeping you completely hungover), you may want to consume all the bananas that your nausea-riddled body can handle.


5. Hair of the Dog

Probably the most fun item on our list (after the first few sips, of course). This is like saying, “Hey, body…. remember how you really liked me last night? Well, I’m back and you are going to like me again!” Of course, if you are at work you should probably avoid this one (no judgements though). Also, don’t forget to stop once you start feeling a little better… or you will be one-eyeing this list again tomorrow.
