French Horn Rebellion @ Brooklyn Electronic Music Fest (more by Chris Doss)
It's been an amazing year for us here at Neon Gold, and as we approach the nexus of 2010 and 2011 we've got a number of exciting new ventures in the works to take the label to great new heights in the year to come. One such thing we are able to share with you today, as we bring the curtains back on POPSHOP, a new monthly pop club night that endeavors to bring the best new pop music the world has to offer to the streets of New York City every month. Together with our dear friends at HeavyRoc Music and the amazing Popjustice, we'll be bringing you POPSHOP on the first Thursday of every month at Tammany Hall, a brilliant new venue in the heart of the Lower East Side (Orchard between Stanton and Rivington) in the space where Annex used to be (which has been gutted, completely overhauled and fitted with a soundsystem that is amazing rather than completely shit).MNDR is now also confirmed to be opening for Chromeo at Terminal 5. She is touring with them, but was previously not listed due to her headlining show at Santos Party House that has now passed.
We've put together a lineup of some of the best new acts the NYC pop scene has to offer for our launch party January 6th, as the brilliant MNDR headlines with live support from French Horn Rebellion and BRAHMS (both fresh off of amazing sets at Brooklyn Electronic Music Festival this past weekend). Chiddy Bang beatsmith Xaphoon Jones rounds out the lineup dropping jams on the laptops of steel all night long, along with opening DJ sets from the Neon Gold Beat Company and Popjustice NYC. Our friends at Absolut have come on board to sponsor, bringing you 2-for-1 drinks from 8pm-9pm and more drink specials throughout the night. And the best part? It's all 100% FREE with RSVP to POPSHOP@neongoldrecords.com. It all kicks off Thursday, 6th January with doors at 8pm and lasting until well into the early hours. Full schedule below.
