On The Scene: Ad Week Kick Off Party

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Monday marked the start of New York’s 11th annual Advertising Week. Often overlooked among  the tons of events the city has, and immediately on the heels of Fashion Week, Ad Week has come into its own. This year the week starts off with its biggest event ever, a concert sporting some of the biggest names from a variety of genres. T.I., A-trak, and the Script had the honoring of starting off, this week full of meetings, events and seminars, at the premiere Terminal 5 venue in Manhattan.


Drinks, music and photos, the event had a bit of everything. With an audience of diligent workers, unorthodox creatives and button downed account men,  the  party was an ambitious outing.  The event started  with the indie rock sensation the Script, the night took on a more relaxed feel, before resident hype-man and NY Radio institution Funk Flex came and got the party jumpin. As attendees got into a dancing mood, hip hop heavyweight T.I. took the stage and performed a full set spanning from his early career hit ASAP to tracks off of his upcoming Paperwork album, out later this year.
Fool’s Gold co-founder and former Kanye West DJ, A-trak closed the club down with his uptempo selection and masterful technical skill. Even resorting at times to standing on tables, he made sure the crowd was engaged and dancing. Following the theme for the night, A-trak played hits from every genre, before ending the night with a seamless transition from No Flex Zone to U Guessed it.
