As NYC prepares for Irene, tonight provides a last hurrah (of the weekend) before everyone is trapped indoors or has to evacuate. We can’t think of a better way to forget about the hurricane, than to “say hello to Los Angeles, via the Brooklyn underground dance sound. The party is a showcase of artists in NY with new releases coming on 100% Silk, sublabel of Not Not Fun records. The warehouse is huge and will be filled with projections and lasers. Free glowsicks at the door, funky outfits encouraged” (Event Listing).
We’re most excited to hear the tunes of Innergaze tonight. “Burning synth ‘n’ drum machine action from the duo of Jason Letkiewicz (Manhunter) and visual artist Aurora Halal, captured here in still-bleeding form, seven songs, mini-LP, nice package, why thank you. The bars are jammed up on the drum computer, so it’s pumping out breathless combo-rhythms for most of the run, with wild, lo-res electronic leads and phased out vocals moaning over top. The Cabaret Voltaire reference some might throw would be too lazy, and anyway, this is far too one-dimensional for it to fit that way…” (Dusted Magazine).
Bands play early (9:30PM-1AM) then 100% SILK and Vibes Management DJs spin freaky dance music on vinyl all night long! RSVP for address to firstname.lastname@example.org
9:30- Octo Octa
11:30- Magic Touch
We were also looking forward to checking out True Panther Sounds‘ Teengirl Fantasy and Tanlines at MoMA Ps1, the Out in the Streets Music Festival Presented by The Sky Report featuring Xylos, NewVillager, Lemonade and many other talented Brooklyn acts (both of which are now cancelled), and the ongoing (until Sept 5) Barney’s Warehouse Sale.
Come on, Irene.
