The Miracles Club will play a few NYC shows this month including their previously mentioned PS1 show this Saturday (7/23) with Gang Gang Dance (DJ), Syd tha Kyd (OFWGKTA), Laurel Halo, and others. The next day (7/24), they'll play a Jelly RockBeach show with Death Grips, Bass Drum of Death,
MNDR, and Night Manager. Check out a video from the first RockBeach show below.
The following week, Miracles Club will play two more NYC shows: July 28 at Glasslands with Vockah Redu and a FIXED party on July 29 at Public Assembly with Midnight Magic and Trap.Avoid. The Glasslands show is presented by MyOpenBar and tickets are on sale. You can also get advanced tickets for the Public Assembly show.
The Miracles Club also played with Midnight Magic during Northside at the DFA Showcase. YACHT, who headlined that show, was recently remixed by The Miracles Club. They put their twist on the title track of YACHT's recently released apocalyptic concept album Utopia. Grab that above.
Sissy Bounce artist Vockah Redu (pictured), who is on the Glasslands bill with The Miracles Club, also play PS1 one week later (7/30) with XXXY and Holy Other. Vanity Fair says, "Vockah's shows are elaborately choreographed and costumed, like how Ziggy Stardust would've ended up if he'd been raised in the Magnolia Houses."

"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.

"Almost 10 years after the release of House Of Jealous Lovers, The Rapture will be coming back home to DFA. Their new album The Grace Of Your Love drops on September 6 in the US, September 5 in Europe. We'll be sure to keep you posted." - DfA RecordsIn other DFA news, YACHT and Midnight Magic and The Miracles Club will play the DFA Northside Festival showcase at Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 19. Tickets are on sale now for the gig that is much smaller than YACHT's last headlining NYC show.
