this is where the DFA anniversary is happening
grand-prospect-hall

NYCers might be familiar with the infamous commercials for the spectacular Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn, with the proprieters finishing off the commercial by yelling "WE MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE" at the top of their lungs. I've always thought that the venue -- which is truly fantastic in the textbook definition of the word -- might make an interesting space for a musical event. It has before, including being the home of the world-music oriented Golden Fest.

Apparently I was not alone. We've mentioned it, but never fully given it the attention it deserves. As part of the massive Red Bull Music Academy takeover of NYC next month, DFA Records will make their dreams come true by hosting their 12th anniversary of party at the dazzling space on May 25, featuring a veritable army of the DFA crew including DJs and live sets from James Murphy, The Rapture, Black Dice (live set), Juan Maclean, Pat Mahoney, The Crystal Ark (live set), YACHT (live set), Sh*t Robot (live set), Planningtorock (live set), Prinzhorn Dance School (live set, their US debut), Still Going, Nancy Whang, Tim Sweeney, Larry Gus, Dan Bodan and Marcus Marr. There are bound to be some surprises in store as well and seems likely to be a very memorable night.

Tickets are still available, but reportedly "dangerously close to selling out."

Tickets are also still available for the RBMA talk with James Murphy at NYU. Browse RBMA's full lineup for more amazing events.

"dangerously close to selling out."

seems suspect as this was announced/onsale a month ago, and only gets on bv now?

FYI, The Juan MacLean is a DJ set, not live.

They'd better hope James Murphy doesn't take a dump there.

Is this the first time that Golden Fest was written about on BV? I always found it funny that fake-balkan music like Beirut gets tons of coverage, but the always awesome Golden Fest gets nothing.

I'm guessing it's not very close to selling out and that's why they are paying Brooklyn Vegan money to write it up a month after the on sale.

James Murphy so fat and rich, why must he choke on giant red bull corporate cock?

It would be interesting to hear some of the awkward backstage interaction at this event. Murphy is suing other dfa partners; former LCD members are pissed at the lack of appreciation and $ they got in the big movie and now James is in talks with Bowery to become the next perry ferrel and host his own huge Murphy-palooza event festival next spring.
