Cut Copy @ Mercury Lounge, NYC - Mar 17, 2008 (Tixgirl)
This week in dance kicked off with a great show on Monday at the Mercury Lounge with the NYC-debut of Spain's el Guincho and a set by Australia's brilliant, live electro band Cut Copy.
The band has a refreshingly straightforward style about sharing their electro-rock tracks, offering little in the way of theatrics. But lead vocalist, keyboardist and guitarist Dan Whitford is willing to offer his appreciation to the crowd and acknowledge the impending electro climaxes, giving the audience the green light to go nuts-and it works. [TheMusic.FM]If you missed them, they're back in May, and this weekend looks equally promising with some big names passing through town.
In addition to the great Palms Out Sound showcase going on at Luna Lounge tonight (Thursday March 20), Musebox is holding their monthly at 205 featuring Pink Skull, James F!@$%^ Friedman and Johnny Cocco, and it's $5 at the door or free if you RSVP now at firstname.lastname@example.org. While Pink Skull is just deejaying, and not doing one of their energetic live performances, the band's diverse influences, numerous side projects, and recent remixes should provide the makings of a good set.
Just a few days after this show Brooklyn-based independent 12" and digital-only label the Savant Guard will make it's worldwide debut release with Pink Skull's single 'Drugs Will Keep Us Together' on March 24th. It will feature the original version of the track along with a remix that New York's own 33Hz did with Ming (from dj duo Ming+FS). Fidget house master Trevor Loveys also puts his own spin on the track. You can download the original version over at Missingtoof and stream the remixes here.

We are happy to be home from Texas. SXSW was fun, but we heard we missed a great Cut Copy show at Studio B on Saturday night. We won't make the same mistake this weekend. BV contributor David Bruno (Slap You In Public) and Robot Blair are bringing their People Don't Dance No More party back to Studio B, and they are always on point. Here is what they had to say:
Big news gang! This Saturday, the People Don't Dance No More party with Serge Santiago, Adam Kesher, and My Cousin Roy is now the official Digitalism afterparty. That means madness for sure....We have two pairs of tickets to give away to the first two people to email us at email@example.com with 'People DO Dance' in the subject line. Get to it!
Advance Tickets $10 via Ticketweb // $15 at the door
Studio B // 10pm - 4am // 259 Banker St. (btw Calyer + Meserole)
Adam Kesher's album "Heading for the Hills, Feeling Warm Inside" is out April 14th. RCRDLBL is streaming some new tracks, so make sure to grab a listen. Saturday's flyer and tour dates below....

The Fashion (DK)
Rumor has it, this band was formed to make fun of the whole mainstreamo/mallcore thing, but much to their chagrin, then suddenly became immensely popular in that scene. After that, it wasn't long before the major labels came a-knockin' and then they're cashing in! Ca-ching! Seek out some of their old promo photos if you don't believe me - the matching white-belts and kerchiefs has got to be a joke, there's no other way. As for the music, they do a decent job with it, but I'd recommend you check out the drummer's "real" band Lack instead. Their new album "aturate every atom absolutely slays.
The Fashion - 2008 Tour Dates
Mar 14 - SXSW - Maggie Mae´s Rooftop Austin, Texas (US)
Mar 17 - Mercury Lounge (w/ Cut Copy) SOLD OUT!!! New York (US)
Mar 18 - Rehab/Club Midway (FREE SHOW!!!!) New York (US)
Cut Copy are playing Bowery Ballroom one day after they probably play Studio B w/ Black Kids in May. Tickets are on sale. Cut Copy are also playing Mercury Lounge & Studio B in March. Check out some videos below...
As you know, Cut Copy are playing SXSW, Coachella, Mercury Lounge and Studio B (on March 15th). And as you know, Black Kids are playing Coachella and Bonnaroo. What you might not know yet is that the most talked about band at CMJ this year are also returning to NYC in May to play Studio B (on May 13th), and that they're going on a tour with Cut Copy after Coachella (which includes a lot of dates, but none in NYC....or maybe they just can't announce it yet....).
I saw Black Kids twice during CMJ, and I'll admit that the first time (@ Annex) was a let down, but the band was nervous and there were technical difficulties. They were much better at R Bar, though that could come off as biased since it was my show (a little more on that here). Seriously though, I thought they were pretty good at that one, and I'm definitely curious to hear and see more next time. All dates below....
Cut Copy's Manhattan show sold right out. Brooklyn is still on sale. You'll find tickets for The Teenagers' Saturday night Brooklyn show at the same link, and you'll also find The Teenagers playing a free in-store upstairs at Cake Shop this Saturday (Feb 2) at 6pm (a 4th NYC show I forgot to mention before). More Cut Copy dates here.
No more "Week in Dance". Obviously, you've seen that it's not a weekly feature. "Dance Update" will be more frequent and less frequent at the same time. Longer and shorter. Keep an eye on my friends' Darrin and Greg Remixed posts for more regular updates on the MP3s that are flying about on the dance'o'net. I'll keep doing what I'm doing here.
I had the grand scheme to do successive posts on my best of for 2007, but that never materialized. I instead wrote an overview of my thoughts on the year in dance, and now I'll jump right into what I'm looking forward to for 2008.
I already told you about the Tim Goldsworthy(DFA)-produced Cut Copy album coming out on Modular. There's also some exciting new releases DFA is putting out themselves. (Sidebar: I know I got some heat for focusing too much on DFA last year, but this is a New York blog, and DFA keep putting out such damn good music: its really not my fault. But noted.). Full-lengths are soon forthcoming from Hot Chip, Hercules and Love Affair, and The Juan Maclean, but killer singles and remixes are coming even much sooner.
Hot Chip is up first with a Feb 5th release of Made in the Dark. They definitely maintain their "leftfield" designation with this album, but its quirkiness is exactly what makes it (and them) so endearing. Check out some fun behind the scenes footage at Hot Chip's shoot of "Ready for the Floor".
Less quirky, more proper early 90s house music: Hercules and Love Affair's album will probably be out in March and features more than a few guest appearances from Antony. Preview the amazing "Blind" featuring Antony on the HAFL Myspace, the 12" single will hopefully come with a remix from early 90s house legend Frankie Knuckles. Fact Magazine has a preview here.
You might have heard the unabashedly piano house track "Happy House" by The Juan Maclean making the rounds in the clubs. It's quite the jam (listen here) and features Nancy Whang on vocals and will be released in March. The album " " (yes, that's what it's called) will be out a bit later in the spring and TJM will kick off unrelentless touring throughout the rest of the year.
Don't sleep on these parties:

No secret that I love Cut Copy.
From last year's monster teaser "Hearts on Fire" (easily one of the best dance tracks of the year), to the more complicated "So Haunted" all signs of CC's new (DFA's Tim Goldsworthy produced) album In Ghost Colors point to massive (out April 8 on Modular). Stream another killer cut "Lights and Music" on theirspace. Cut Copy announced that single will be released on Tuesday as well as a string of tour dates including LA, NYC, SXSW, and Coachella. If you didn't catch their "So Cosmic" mixtape around the holidays: pick it up now. Of course it's really good. Tour Dates below....
