Moby @ Irving Plaza - Sept 21, 2009 (amaindrault)

A lot of dancing went down last week & weekend but I missed most of it. Hopefully you were able to catch the Rapture at Matchless, Moby at Irving Plaza or Music Hall of Williamsburg, or some of the many other shows & dance parties that happened last week. If not, there are plenty of opportunities to make up for it this week, starting with Thursday (9/23):

Be sure to check out Optimo's new website and podcast, plus you can download a special Cumbia set from JD Twitch over on Beats In Space. JDH & Dave P have also brought German duo Alter Ego, sure to put a modern electro-techno spin on the night's festivities.

If you're in the mood for something more disco-oriented, Black Devil Disco Club are doing a live set at Boys & Girls this Friday (9/25) at Webster Hall. Their tracks definitely have a bit of a creepy vibe at times (in a good way of course), but hopefully you will be too busy dancing to be freaked out. Mike Simonetti of Italians Do It Better will be deejaying as well so there are all the makings for a night full of disco delights. Info on the party, plus a chance to win a pair of tickets below:


$1 Drinks & $1 Admission Before 12 with RSVP. Advanced tickets available here.
