TONIGHT: 07.20.10
Big Business, Torche, Helms Alee
w/ DJ 1000TimesYes
Music Hall Of Williamsburg
8pm, $15

Big Business, Torche and Helms Alee are three of my favoritest bands in the whole wide world, as all of ‘em embody that joyful, euphoric, cloud-punching, goosebumpy, post-Lysol joy-sludge that I live and breathe on… prolly what I imagine Lady Gaga would call the “edge of glory,” right? As a naturally negative and misanthropic person, their uplifting melodies have been wildly influential for me, working like a drug. I am ecstatic to have the whoppertunity to spin records in between their sets. Here’s hoping I don’t fuck it up.

In honor of the occasion, I will be spinning only music that dwells in similarly triumphant, mountaintop-standing, heaven-gazing melodies, crossing the boundaries of punk, metal, mersh, dance music, hip-hop and noise. This means Hüsker Dü, Robyn, Tim Hecker, Fuck Buttons, Baroness, Big Country, Three 6 Mafia, Peter Gabriel, Goldfrapp, T.I.’s “What You Know,” the slowed-down Bieber song—basically the optimistic, stay-high-igh-igh shit I would pay any of these bands hard American money to cover. I will probably be the the first dude to play an ABBA song to a bunch of bearded Hydra Head fans. So, here come the waterworks!

This is all a preview of a Podcast I’m cooking up for the FatCat Records blog once my turntable gets fixed, so you’ll be able to take this little burst of sunshine home with you soon. I have no idea where the DJ booth is at MHOW, but if you find I feel free to say hi. I’ll have books and hugs.
