Modern house music connoisseur Anna Lunoe offers fans a glimpse into her history with the NYC dance music scene through a series of photos and a heartwarming backstory.
Anna Lunoe is an Australian DJ, vocalist, radio host, and producer who currently calls Los Angeles home. However, according to her sentimental IG post, New York City is the place that truly has her heart.
It seems like the post was inspired by her gig at Elsewhere in Brooklyn this past weekend. “This weekend i played my dream gig at @elsewherespace, a packed warehouse rave w old friends in the booth – the ones who took care of me in the early days,” she says. She goes on to explain that it’s really the people she’s met along the way who make this city special.
Anna continues, “the years certainly fly by but when i think about the set i played at elsewhere i hear them all in the music. The raves, the disco, the bass, the house.. wouldn’t be the dj i am without them.”
She even shares a wholesome photo of her father from one of her early gigs in the city in 2006. She offers context, “i’m behind him nervously playing one of my very first gigs in a little bar called plan b in east village (lol dad ?) and it’s so weird cos all weekend ive found myself thinking back on what a huge catalyst NYC has been in my life.”
Anna first came to the city in 2006 where she spent six months there, and then again in 2008/2009 where she spent several more months playing gigs at fashion events, dive bars, and underground raves. She notes that she and her husband even got engaged in the Big Apple.
It’s fair to say New York City loves Anna Lunoe just as much as she loves it. She reminisces on times she played at coveted NYC venues like Output, Webster Hall, House of Yes, and even major festivals like Electric Zoo and Greatest Day Ever. Anna closes her post with a photo of a NYC skyline sunrise, adding “the last pic is the sunrise when i got home – ive gotten to watch the sun rise over this city more times than any australian should, and i’m grateful for every one.”
