the week in Dance w/ Showtrotta (part 2) (The Field, Juan Maclean, Iggy Pop, Fatboy Slim ticket contest & more)
"As with most of the Field's music, Yesterday and Today works better through headphones than in the club. You'd get too many people transfixed, just staring out into the middle distance. But that's what makes it such a powerful experience to listen to on your own. So cue up "Sequenced": let its static alternation and its basic bass and hi-hat drift through you and out across an icy landscape. It's the pulse of 2009. " [PopMatters]
Hopefully you had a good time getting down Friday night. Get ready to do some more dancing tonight (Saturday, 6/19) and read on for a chance to win a pair of tickets to see Fatboy Slim at Terminal 5 next Wednesday:
The Juan MacLean (who was once a part of the now reunited Six Finger Satellite) and the Field have finally reached the New York date they added to their joint North American tour. The show is at Webster Hall & you can still get tickets here.
From there you can catch a dj set from the Juan himself at his after-party at the Tribeca Grand:
FREE WITH RSVP
Email tribecagrand@GBH.tv with your name and number of guests.When you arrive, tell the door person you are on the GBH Guest List.
Personally...I highly recommend some classic disco at Public Assembly:
$10 advanced tickets available here. $20 at the door.
More happening Saturday (6/20):
- Ayres and ROK One are at Savalas
- Nicky Siano deejays Water Taxi Beach at the South Street Seaport every Saturday night.
- Brendon Moeller is at Water Taxi Beach (Long Island City).
- Save the Cannibals at Rebel with Seth Troxler and Eric Cloutier.
Keep checking back for Part 3 of the Week In Dance which will have info on plenty of ways for you to get down Sunday through Wednesday. There's a lot I'm looking forward to during that time, but one thing I am extremely excited about is Fatboy Slim deejaying Terminal 5 on Wednesday! You can catch him on Letterman on Monday, and he'll be on Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday performing as the Brighton Port Authority with Iggy Pop. You can win a pair of tickets to catch him at Terminal 5 (or buy one if you're not feeling lucky) right here!
