Royal Rumble: Tenjune vs Stereo

A wild story just came across the wire. Let's go straight to the Little Birdy, who says:

a very interesting incident occurred right before New Years, and it has failed to receive the necessary exposure. Recently at Houston's restaurant, the entire EM group was eating dinner. Randomly, Stereo owner Mike Satsky entered the restaurant with one of his associates, and upon sighting Mark Birnbaum walked directly up to him and hit him "open-handed" out of his chair. He then proceeded to put him in a head lock. Eugene and the rest of the TJ managers looked on with shock from there seats while this occurred. After some heated words, Satsky voluntarily left the restaurant. There are reports that Birnbaum is now trying to press charges.

The fight stems from the huge beef between Noah/Satsky and Birnbaum, which I'm sure your well aware of- but I could offer some background if your not. The catalyst of this climatic brawl was TJ stealing away DJ Suss One from Stereo, coupled with Birnbaum sending Satsky texts stating "how good the music is now." Both clubowners are represented by the same publicists (Shadow PR), which is why this entertaining story was killed in the papers.

An open fisted slap to the ground. Fierce. We checked in with a source who confirms the entire incident, saying "it def happened. i thought eugene was slapped also." A double slap? Crazy! First question - why are all these guys eating at Houston's? Nasty. Second - did anyone present manage to get a video of this. We predict high comedy. Maybe we can set up a rematch at a neutral location. Does Touch work for everyone? They probably could use the business.

hee heee hahahahahaa. that's pretty funny.

you know i once watched eugene-remm crawl around on all fours at A60 to retrieve an errant lipstick owned by his former boss (a D.O. of BRGuest) that had rolled under a banquette.

while the poor guy was ass-up under the bench, she pointed and laughed, while all his fellow colleagues watched.

true story. (i felt really badly for him, even though personally i think both Level-V and Tenjune are totally busted. now i hear they're going around telling everyone they actually "bought Lotus.")

it's the artichoke dip at Houston's. seriously. no joke.

Suspect that there are two posts in a row about Stereo... isn't mark birnbaum like a full foot taller then satsky? someone should check their sources... and in the meantime, Stereo is padlocked so what's the big deal about a dj?

the fight originated from a beef between Eugene/mark and noah t. word on the street was that E/M were trying to snag employees from Strategic group.

then noah scooped a few venues in miami during new years from the tenjune people.

satsky is such a noah sweatjob that even though he has his own club he is on noahs side

I was at Houston's and saw the whole thing! All this is bullshit!! What really happen is Satsky followed
Birnbaum into the ladies room - Birnbaum saw Satsky and perceeded to slowly remove his belt and lower his pant's. Satsky aggresively grabbed Mark's scalp and vigirously throat fucked Mark until he gagged and choked and farted light brown skids in the tighty whities his mom just purchased for Hanakuh!! That's the God's honest truth! So help me God!

did they make out?

January 17, 2008 at 12:31PM | Unregistered CommenterAnonymous

All of this is BS, Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum r the best in the industry and more professional than the countless other idiots out there... And if we r talking about clubs, I've been to stereo once and never returned. the place is a joke. Tenjune on the other hand continues to run the city.

ten j runs what city ???? is that a joke ??? you mean getting young girl with no class to make outwith old men is what u called running things ...that be with 50 losers outside begging to get to listen to same music as the radio ...i guess studio 54 and danceteria were bad clubs to these places ...honestly would anyone remember 10j in 10 years ....hows about ...nope

night owl is CLEARLY a member of 10j team, its embarassing that they need to post things like that to make think that they are on that level. i could care less about stereo or 10j, but satsky has been in his position for years and is not a fake and seems like 10j guys are jealous and want to be real, but they manufacture rather than posses the real goods. night owl is a great pr stunt, but people are not dumb.

Mike Satsky is a fucking TOOL. He is an ass sucking loser. He will suck any celebrity cock if they just say hello to him or come to one of his parties. I feel bad for him.

Both of these "places" and the people involved are children. they have NO idea what they are doing- they got very lucky and talked a group of "daddy owns the world" hedge fund kids to give them truckloads of cash to open "clubs". They steal, from themselves and others- and no, they will not be remembered in 20 years as anything New York City had to offer in the world of nightlife (original China club, Corrola's Red Zone, Milk bar, Heartbreak, tunnel, palladium, Max's kanses city. CbGb, Elaines, Wilsons, rascals, Mud club, Alcatraz, Scrap Bar. Even limelight circa 1990- not bad watching Pearl Jam play while kurt cobain come's on to jam with chris cornell and slash. The going upstairs to the VIP room with the Hells Angels doing security....
