Tomorrow at 88 Palace isn’t just any old edition of Dark Disco; sure the residents (DKDS) and decor will be in place but the lineup is something to behold, thanks to the likes of Red Bull Music Academy being in town. Not only is the live debut of Gerd Janson (Tuff City Kids) at hand, but Metro Area will be in full-force; presenting their live show after a decade of radio silence in the performance department. Even more so, Night Slugs head honchos Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 will be there to give their own definitive take on “club music” for a special set. Get your dim sum and club constructions on, tomorrow night on East Broadway. Check out the flyer and a preview of what’s to come, after the jump.
Tomorrow night, New Yorkers get their seventh dose of what’s to come from the venerable vibe-streaming institution that is Boiler Room. While the last one was a massive affair with the likes of Mike Simonetti (Italians Do It Better), ShadowBox (Pictures Music) and Nicolas Jaar, this one is going to strip down to somewhat proper New York vibes. How, you say? Well, let’s just get back to the basic point of a good New York party and play some damn house music; and there ain’t no party like a house party without this insanely-stacked lineup. Mike Servito (resident of The Bunker) will be providing a nice flow to the event, with artists like Juan Maclean and House of House (LIVE) giving out their own personal dose of what a NYC house vibe should be. Finally, the godfather will grace the Boiler Room in the flesh, as Frankie Knuckles shows off his legendary skills to listeners, chat room folk and the vibe convention that will surround him at the party itself. Incredibly excited and anxiously awaiting the stream tomorrow, we’re posting Juan Maclean’s breakfast set with Shitrobot some months back. Hyped would be an understatement.
After successful events at Le Poisson Rouge and 285 Kent, the event series run by NYC producer Rioux has switched gears to the ever-accomodating confines of Ran Tea House (beside 285 Kent), where its free reign for the performers on the bill. The fourth party will have a total of ten artists; five DJs and five visual artists providing a night that will surely push the limits of artistic output in a variety of ways. In addition to the unique and eclectic nature of the night, the soundsystem will be built in the shape of spiral seashells. So yes, it’ll be at the very least, the most intriguing party to head to this weekend. But we think it’ll be a rager and a unique rager at that. Check out the links, lineup and ticket info down below after the jump.
