Discos Discos @ Holocene, January 12, 2011
I love a good dance party (duh) and I love free (double duh), these things together seem a rare flower, a blue moon shining over frozen hell…, but no longer!! The party gods at Holocene bring you DISCOS DISCOS, a monthly dance party that features tropical bass beats pulling from a wide array of genres and countries! Rad!
I don’t think I’ve listened to Dead Meadow since Emerica’s Stay Gold video but that doesn’t mean I don’t already have a ticket for Wednesday’s show. I mean Dead Meadow with Sweet Apple?! Sweet apple meaning Jay Mascis (tell me you’re a Dinosaur Jr. fan ya?) on drums!? C’mon.
I’m telling you – this is so good it might be sold out. Arrive early status. Lady Supergroup: Carrie Brownstein, Mary Timony, Rebecca Cole, and Janet Weiss. These ladies have played in bands including Helium, The Minders, Croissant Cocktail, Feeble Knees, Quasi, Dogz, Sleater-Kinney, @@@, The Consortium, Asia, and Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks. Fuck yes I’m excited for Wild Flag.
New years resolutions: dress up more and go to more shows that have you saying “wasn’t that something?”. Well tonights the night. Foxtails Brigade, Jason Simms and Emily Katz at the Greenhouse, a night of gorgeous music and people feeling gorgeous.
