the week in Dance w/ Showtrotta (part 1)
School of Seven Bells @ South Street Seaport Friday (more by Chris La Putt)
Somehow I didn’t go out last week, except for Pilooski and Friendly Fires on Tuesday & Wednesday which I already told you about. Plenty of other dance events went on though…the School of Seven Bells show at the Seaport (above), the DFA Boat Party, Flashing Lights, and Girls & Boys. Now, on to this week:
Meanred‘s Tonight We Ride party is back again at Santos. Guest deejays include New York’s own Star Eyes (who released her Disappear EP earlier this summer, video below) and Jubilee (whose Paypur/Smoke Rings EP is out September 8th on Nightshifters), plus Jokers of the Scene are in from Ottawa. The Canadian duo (who were awesome when they were here back in April) remixed both the Acid Girls’ “The Numbers Song” and Burns’ “Turbo” (check out the video below) this month, as well as Mika’s “We Are Golden” which you can download over at RCRD LBL. Party info and videos below:
Star Eyes – Disappear
Burns – Turbo (Jokers Of The Scene Remix)
Also on Thursday (8/20):
– Danny Krivit and DJ Severe at Cielo (which has reopened after being closed the past few weeks for renovations).
– Ether happens weekly at Happy Ending.
– Less with Connie at Bar 13.
– DJ Spinna deejays downstairs at Santos.
Two great party starters, Fixed and Trouble & Bass, join forces, bringing what is sure to be a great party with Boy 8-Bit to Public Assembly. His set at 88 Palace back in November is still fresh in my mind as one of the most fun sets I witnessed in 2008 (not to mention one of my Best of 2008 right behind the first time I saw him at Glasslands in March). Download the radio edit of his new track “Baltic Pine” (from the Baltic Pine EP out now on This Is Music) from RCRD LBL and head to the party! Highly recommended!
Advanced tickets available here.
Another option for Friday (8/21) is Boys & Girls at Webster Hall where Does It Offend You, Yeah? will be deejaying (which I’ve heard is actually better than their live shows) as well as Teenage Bad Girl. Check out some videos from each of them below along with all the party info and a chance to win a pair of tickets to the event!
