There are tons of dance/electronic shows happening in NYC all the time, but we don’t get a chance to post about all of them. Here’s a roundup of some cool recently-announced stuff we’ve missed:
The Bunker is throwing a 13th anniversary party on Saturday (1/9) at Good Room with Function, Inland, Post Scriptum, Souffront, Servito and Kasenic. Tickets are available.
Last year, Berlin/San Francisco producer Xosar released the noisy techno album Let Go on Opal Tapes, followed by the free album Holographic Matrix that she dropped right before the new year. She plays a live set on January 14 at Good Room with local support from Aurora Halal (tickets). Listen to stuff off both albums below.
Also on January 14, DFA-signed acid house producer Marcus Marr brings his tour to Baby’s All Right with Dave Harrington and Rioux on DJ duties (tickets). Listen to last year’s “Brown Sauce” b/w “Peacemakers” single and check out all dates below.
