Summer is half way over and that means it is time to do what we do every time we come across an occasion, large or small, significant or mundane, real or invented: celebrating! This weekend there are back to back events of such divergent and unique musical and geographic features it will be impossible to miss either one. Don’t you love lack of choices?
Friday night at Misfit Friday italian super producer Congorock will be joining Damaged Goods behind the decks at Louis on South Beach. The Fool’s Gold Records signee and man behind the epic track Babylon will be doing a late night set so make sure you save some energy. We will also be celebrating Overthrow’s Snake Charmer Aban Sonia’s b-day, so you can use that as extra motivation to stay up.
Saturday night we cross the bridge to downtown’s newest super-venue Grand Central and join our esteemed colleagues Poplife for the monthly Overthrow. Joining us will be the endlessly talented but normally mega club contracted DJ Ross One with NYC’s music-pedia and remix master Roctakon. This will be the first time the two all-star party rockers are performing downtown and trust that they will be dropping a set that would get them kicked out of the models n’ bottles clubs they normally play so fast it would make a bra clad table service waitress drop her tips into some rich old dude’s champagne flute. If you’ve never heard them play their REAL sets, get ready for a treat because they are really some of the most talented DJs in the country and on Saturday they are going to show everyone their secret identities. Also dropping jams will be TKO (Damaged Goods + Troy Kurtz), Jessica Who, and Mike Deuce. If you’re mathmetically inclined you will have realize that is six of the best DJs in the city, all in one place on one night. And considering its Troy’s bday, he counts triple so that pushed the numbers to 8! Woah, thats enough DJs to make Octomoms everywhere nervous!
