Good Charlotte rockers and twin brothers Benji and Joel Madden, 42, bailed out of a packed party when youthful scenesters started moshing.
We’re told that the brothers showed up at VFILES and gaming company Artie’s NFT Week bash at the Public Hotel’s new nightlife venue, House of X, to escort the band Chase Atlantic — signed to their production company, MDDN — around.
But the duo didn’t last long at the wild bash.
“Five minutes, in they told their friends, ‘We are too old for this,’” says a source.
“The crowd was moshing to A$AP Ferg. They watched two songs and were super into it.” But, “It was crowded so they let the kids in the band enjoy the booth and headed out. They said their hellos and dipped out early.”
Maybe the brothers had a point: We hear this all went down after 12:30 a.m.
Ferg, who we hear arrived after midnight, performed for a crowd that included Pussy Riot’s Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, “My Unorthodox Life” star Batsheva Haart, Olympic athletes Apolo Ohno and Monica Aksamit, and various downtown ‘it’ kids.
The event wasn’t the only bash the brothers hit on Thursday. They were spotted at an opening reception for South American artist Fernanda Lavera’s new show, “The Pharaoh and the Celtic Gods,” hosted by Greg Schriefer at G23NY and attended by Clive Davis and Nikki Haskell.
We’re told the bros were “so excited to take a picture with Clive and to spend time with him.”
Don Lemon and his fiancé Tim Malone also popped by. Paris Hilton’s model turned estate wiz-kid ex Brandon Trentham purchased a piece of artwork, we’re told.
