Opening Ceremony's '90s Flashback
The scene outside of The Webster
To celebrate their 10th anniversary last night, Opening Ceremony turned back the clock to 1992, paying homage to some of New York’s best club nights by reenacting them in different rooms at Webster Hall.

Upstairs, Paul Sevigny spun the Smiths songs he used to play at his Sunday night party at Sway. In the ballroom, the Misshapes got the crowd dancing with Interpol and Franz Ferdinand, and downstairs, Larry Tee of Luxx, the now defunct Williamsburg club where electroclash was born, played the songs that put the space on the map–all of it culminating with a raucous performance by Lil’ Kim, the high priestess of ’90s hip-hop.
