Gang Gang Dance

Gang Gang Dance and New Moods shared a bill at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (5/4). How was the show? If the picture above is to be believed, it was at least colorful. The video below kind of confirms the same.

If you missed it, or the opener, take note that New Moods are playing a FREE show at Knitting Factory on Monday, 5/9 with Sherlock's Daughter and Slowdance.

And the Gang Gang Dance party continues TONIGHT (5/5), as the band will DJ (not play) at clothing store Opening Ceremony's Cinco De Mayo Party at China Chalet in conjunction with a bigger partnership to promote all involved...

Gang Gang Dance and Opening Ceremony have paired up to promote the band's latest album, Eye Contact, which will be released by 4AD on May 10th.

It's a mind-warbling, multi-media collaboration spanning in-store displays, a band-curated mixtape, an exclusive 4AD Session and a Cinco Day Mayo record release party at Manhattan's China Chalet sponsored by a Swedish vodka company -- a multi-cultural celebration for the new album that only Gang Gang could conjure.

If you visit the Opening Ceremony stores in New York and Los Angeles throughout May, you will find eye catching window displays designed by multi-instrumentalist and reknowned artist in his own right, Brian DeGraw. Customers will also be able to take home their new clothes in a super limited-edition tote bag, also designed by DeGraw.

For online customers, you can visit Opening Ceremony's website (openingceremony.us) and listen to a Gang Gang Dance mixtape featuring Primal Scream, J Dilla and About Group to name a few. There are also exclusive band photos and, starting on May 9th, visitors can watch an exclusive preview of the band's 4AD session.

And to cap this all off, if you are in the New York area, you can hear members of the band DJ at Opening Ceremony's Cinco De Mayo Party on May 5th. It will run from 10 pm to 3 am at China Chalet, located at 47 Broadway. Other DJ guests include Spencer Sweeney and XXXchange. Admission is free and first-come first served. Again, Cinco De Mayo X Chinese bar X Swedish vodka...
