The fourth-annual Flosstradamus prom – FLOSSTRAPROMUS, duh – is going down on Valentines’ Day (Sat Feb 14th) at the Abbey Pub in Chicago. Check out their commercial (courtesy of Thunder Horse, who put together video loops for all the past Fool’s Gold tours) for a taste of what’s in store, and get more show details on the Facebook event page. Also go find somebody and be in love!
Do you love the techno house musics and live in Toronto? Then do we have the guys for you. Nacho Lovers have two amazing hometown shows coming up this month: first up is the latest edition of the all-vinyl Rollin party at Wrongbar on Friday, Feb 20th, followed by a support slot for Justin Martin’s show the following week (Feb 27), also at Wrongbar. (What can we say, Nav runs a fine establishment!). Roll through and jack your body. Stay tuned for more hot Nacho action on the blog later this week…
As you may have read, A-Trak has a brand new, officially licensed mix CD coming out on April 14th called Infinity +1. (Check the schmoove cover artwork by Dust La Rock. It’s all in the lips.) The mix features everyone from John Dahlbäck to Kid Sister to Gonzalez to NORE, and you can see the full tracklisting after the jump. Trizzy will be touring stateside in support of the disc, and you can check those dates – where else? – after the jump.
Things you might not know about Sammy Bananas: he has a rather large collection of 90s independent rap vinyl (L Da Head Toucha!) and composes for jazz flute. Things you already know (and love) about Sammy Bananas: he is one damn clever DJ!
The young lad is headed down to Australia for a few shows next month and put together an enjoyably funky new tour mix that leans heavy on tracks from the red continent. Listen close for the surprises!
This Friday (1.23) I’m psyched for the latest edition of FLASHING LIGHTS, my party with DJ Ayres and Jubilee. We took December off and people kept asking when the next one would be. The answer is Friday, duh. It’s also my born day, Louisahhh! is in town from Turntable Lab LA to guest with us, and Ayres bought hella glowsticks. We recorded a new promo mix for the occasion!
Killahbeez just posted a quick Q&A with Treasure Fingers, check it out for info on his studio setup, upcoming plans and more. You can also find Mr Fingers on a mini Canadian rampage with Jokers Of The Scene this week, teaming up for shows at Celebrities in Vancouver on Friday (1.23) and Pawn Shop in Edmonton on Saturday (1.24).
Our bros in Chromeo have a giant show (real talk there’s a billboard!) this week in Los Angeles. Unfortunately for doz that slept, it is SOLD OUT. But dry your tears funkateers and chromettes, there’s an afterparty at the Roxy! If you’re in town you owe it to yourself to get groovy Thursday night, cop advance tickets while you can.
Check out LA Riots back in North Carolina (Raise up! Yes Petey Pablo and college basketball are the only things we know about your state!) for two shows this weekend, first tonight (1.16) at Greene Street and then Saturday at Kiss Lounge in Charlotte.
The Ottawa reign of terror continues to burn Hollywood burn like Flavor Flav on nitrus. Check Jokers Of The Scene tonight (1.15) guesting at Dance Right at La Cita and listen in Saturday for their set on Indie 103.1′s Neon Noise show at Midnight. Then on Tuesday they rock the Dance party (truth in advertising!) at Arena. Flyer for that one after the jump.
UPDATE: Since 103.1 stopped broadcasting on Friday (PS: FUUUUUUCK!), the JOTS mix will only be available on the station’s online stream. But the airwaves loss is your gain, since the guys are using the night to play Trust in the OC. Whoo! Read More
