Miracles Club

"We're not going to lie. When XLR8R first caught wind of The Miracles Club, we had our doubts. Granted, we were already fans of Honey Owens and her droney, experimental work as Valet and as a member of Nudge--we even made her the subject of an episode of XLR8R TV a couple years ago. But Honey Owens... doing house music? In Portland? And claiming classic Chicago sounds as an influence? No offense to our pals in the Pacific Northwest, but the City of Roses isn't exactly known for its love of DJ culture. Vintage stores, organic eats, and DIY noisemaking? Yes. Thumping, club-friendly beats? Not so much. So imagine our surprise when the outfit's debut EP, Light of Love, came out last year and was actually... good." [xl8r8r]
Portland's The Miracles Club released an EP of remixes of their track "Light of Love" on Cut Copy's Cutters Records back in May. Cut Copy contributed their own remix of the track to the EP. Listen to that and the original track above to compare.

Miracles Club have a number of Northside Festival shows coming up this weekend. They play the Let's Play House Northside showcase tonight (6/17) at Cameo with Blondes, Jacques Renault and others. They also DJ at 70 N 6th Street on June 18 with Konnichiwa and open for YACHT and Midnight Magic at the DFA Northside showcase on Sunday (6/19). Tickets are still on sale for the latter.

On July 23, they'll return to NYC to play the same PS1 Warm Up event that Gang Gang Dance is DJing. OFWGKTA's Syd tha Kyd, Laurel Halo (who plays 285 Kent tonight), and Lunice are also on the bill.

If you miss Laurel Halo at 285 Kent tonight, you can also catch her at the Newtown Radio 1 Year Anniversary BBQ at Shea Stadium on Sunday, June 19 with Autre Ne Veut, Forma and others.

They totally crashed and burned at Cameo Gallery Friday night. One of the most pathetic shows I've ever seen. Hopefully they can pull it together for tonight's opening slot for YACHT because there will be a lot more people to impress.
