CROOKERS COMES TO STACHE
TICKETS ON SALE FRI., AUG. 14 / 10AM!
Known for his earth-shaking live performances and cutting-edge albums, Francesco “Phra” Barbaglia has quickly become one of the most prominent djs working today. As the founding member of Crookers, he has shown the ability to not only create massive club hits but also a desire to push the genre forward through fearless innovation and a tireless work ethic. He began honing his sound, blending elements of house, bossa nova, jazz and funk together into mixes that were unlike anything else at the time. With numerous remix credits for artists ranging from the Chemical Bros to Kid Cudi, a recent, highly acclaimed live set at EDC and a new album in the works, Phra has shown no signs of slowing down. Looking for a way to explore the limits of his profession while working with his friends, what started as a passion project has turned into one of the best sources for underground music.

This is by far our greatest installment of Monotone for we are Proud to Present:
ADN CKRYSTALL Live in concert. Absolutely NO COVER CHARGE (unheard of for this act!)
ADN’ Ckrystall is the moniker of synthesizer wizard Érick Moncollin from Tarbes, France. In 1977 Moncollin spent time in Paris experimenting with synthesizers, jamming alongside composers Vangelis and Tim Blake.
It was here that he obtained a prototype of the Korg MS-20, a legendary synthesizer. While attending art school in Tolouse, Érick met Benoit Hutin, who offered a studio for the recording of the “Jazz’Mad” album.
The entire album was recorded over a 4 day period in 1980. The sound of “Jazz’Mad” revolves around the synthesizer, utilizing the instrument to all its capacities.
The result is an unconventional and discordant conglomeration of synthesizers, drum machines, and vocals that cradle the edge of the brain.
This is a unique opportunity for intense fans of this genre to catch a true synth hero, live in concert in a GEM of a venue. ADN plays at the Stroke of Midnight, an all analog live set.
Surrounding this event our “Usual Suspects” will be taking you through flights of your deepest, darkest synth-wave Anthems. We know you’ve missed us….

**Only Southeastern U.S. Performance**
Front 242 is a Belgian electronic music group that pioneered the style they call electronic body music or EBM. They were a profound influence on the electronic and industrial music genres.
After signing with the Wax Trax! label in 1984, they started their first U.S. tour with Ministry. In 1988, Front by Front was released, which included “Headhunter” (with a video by Anton Corbijn), becoming the band’s first club hit, reaching #13 on the US Billboard Dance/Club Play Songs chart. They were also involved in side projects. Richard 23 played in the Revolting Cocks, and Jean-Luc De Meyer sang for Bigod 20 for their debut single, “The Bog” in 1990.
Tyranny (For You), released in 1991, became the band’s highest charting album, reaching #95 on the Billboard 200. Sony/Epic signed the band and acquired the rights to their back catalog. A broader public was exposed to their music in 1992 in the film Single White Female. The video playing in a key scene is Front 242’s “Rhythm Of Time”, from Tyranny (For You). Front 242 released two albums in 1993 on Epic’s sub-label RRE and performed on the main stage of the 1993 Lollapalooza tour. The four core members regrouped in 1998, performed on their first tour in five years and started a recording contract in the U.S. with Metropolis Records.
In the 2000s, they made occasional appearances in Latin America and Europe, even being rejoined by Dirk Bergen for a sold out reunion concert under the original lineup of Bresanutti, Bergen, Codenys and De Meyer. The band re-released its entire backcatalogue via Alpha Matrix.

D’ANGELO & THE VANGUARD AT THE INTIMATE FILLMORE MIAMI BEACH AT THE JACKIE GLEASON THEATER
TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, AUG. 14TH/10AM
Acclaimed R&B guitarist, singer, songwriter D’Angelo brings his band The Vanguard to the intimate Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater Tuesday, October 6th, 2015 / 9PM. Tickets are on sale Friday, August 14th / 10AM.
Once in a while, an album arrives just in time to give the people a voice. Amidst a groundswell of tensions and upheavals, D’Angelo and The Vanguard delivered Black Messiah upon unsuspecting, yet receptive masses. It not only broke a 14-year studio silence from the Grammy Award-winning multi-platinum singer, songwriter, and producer, but it also reaffirmed the need for raw, righteous, and real soul. Its impact could immediately be felt when it landed at #1 on the BillboardR&B/Hip-Hop Albums Chart and #5 on the Top 200.The fans spoke, and the critics did as well. The New York Times, Spin, The Washington Post, Rolling Stone, The Los Angeles Times, NPR, The Hollywood Reporter, and countless others extolled the album for both its music and message, thus usurping countless “Best of music lists. However, D’Angelo truly connected once he hit the stage again. He made his Saturday Night Live debut with a silky performance of “Really Love” plus a poignant and powerful rendition of “The Charade” from Black Messiah. Hoodie on, guitar in hand, and surrounded by The Vanguard with statements such as “I Can’t Breathe” and “Black Lives Matter” emblazoned upon their t-shirts, D’Angelo left audiences speechless. He and The Vanguard followed up this seminal moment with a completely sold out European tour—entitled The Second Coming—marking his first full jaunt since 2012’s Occupy Music Tour and The Liberation Tour. Quickly thereafter, D’Angelo returned to the US to perform in front of a sold-out audience at Harlem’s world famous Apollo Theater. Rolling Stone called the Apollo show, “stunning… for more than two hours, he gave a master class in soul,” while Wall Street Journal wrote, “rendering a strain of soul music reminiscent of Sly Stone in the ‘60s, George Clinton in the ‘70s or 1980s Prince, onstage D’Angelo is a dynamo of the James Brown variety.” The Vanguardfeatures Jesse Johnson (guitar), Isaiah Sharkey (guitar), Pino Palladino (bass), Chris “Daddy” Dave (drums), Cleo “Pookie” Sample (keyboards), and singers Kendra Foster, Charlie “Red” Middleton and Jermain Holmes.
D’Angelo redefines music once more with Black Messiah. though, in some ways, it’s all in the name. Of the title, he explains in the liner notes, “Black Messiah is not one man. It’s a feeling that, collectively, we are all that leader.” That feeling is going to live on for a long time to come, a vanguard for a new generation

Live – North America – 2015
Autechre are an English electronic music group consisting of Rob Brown and Sean Booth, both natives of Rochdale, Greater Manchester. Formed in 1987, the duo are one of the most prominent acts signed with Warp Records, a label known for its pioneering electronic music and through which all Autechre albums have been released. While most associated with IDM (intelligent dance music), Booth and Brown are ambivalent in relating their sound to established genres. Their music has exhibited a gradual shift in aesthetic throughout their career, from their earlier work with clear roots in techno, electro and hip hop to later albums that are often considered more experimental in nature, featuring complex patterns of rhythm and subdued melodies. Oversteps, their most recent album, was released on February 22nd 2010.
Autechre have also recorded under various pseudonyms. One of the duo\’s earliest recordings was a 12\” under the alias Lego Feet, released in 1991 on Skam Records. The majority of releases by the mysterious \”umbrella project\” Gescom, most of them on Skam, have been attributed to Booth and Brown, among other artists.
Popular Indie Band Walk The Moon comes to the intimate Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theatre Tuesday, Octobere 13th, 2015 / 8PM. Tickets are on sale Friday, May 15th / Noon. They recently performed to a sold out crowd at Revolution Live in Ft. Lauderdale, so get your tickets right away!Formed in Cincinnati by singer/keyboardist Nicholas Petricca, Walk The Moon built up a devoted following on the strength of their ecstatic live show and their undeniably infectious single “Anna Sun.” A relentless touring machine with an ever-snowballing family of fans, the band quickly graduated from Ohio club scene favorites to an international force to be reckoned with. In concert, it’s clear that Walk The Moon’s live show is not a spectator sport. Instead, it’s an interactive celebration of life and love, a communal commitment to joy and living in the moment. Onstage, Petricca leads audiences in a mass exorcism of the things that bring them down, casting out the demons of doubt and insecurity with hands raised to the sky. Riding the wave of their platinum selling second album Talking Is Hard, the results speak for themselves. Lead single “Shut Up And Dance” became an undeniable pop-rock anthem. An ode to freeing yourself from the shackles of self-consciousness and embracing the present, it’s already a live favorite, with a sing-along chorus that works audiences up into a frenzy. The album is filled with raw vocal performances, heavy rock riffs, new wave quirks, and stylish percussion which make for a futuristic marriage with lyrical themes of self-empowerment, growth, and survival. “What we’ve ended up with is a bunch of really committed, confident shouts into the darkness,” says Petricca. As they return to the road, Walk The Moon is finding that the darkness is full of eager fans and soon-to-be-converts, all shouting back, singing along until the lights come up.General Admission tickets for Walk The Moon Tuesday, October 13th, 2015 / 8PM are $30.00 in advance and $34.00 day of show.

DUKE DUMONT (Live)
Blasé Boys Club Tour
New album #OceanDrive is out now!
Adam Dyment, aka Duke Dumont, surfaced in 2006 with a buzzing, whip-cracking remix of Mekon’s “Yes Yes Y’All.” The London, England-based producer and DJ, inspired by “fidget house” figure Switch (M.I.A., Major Lazer), continued to increase his exposure through remixes for the likes of Late of the Pier (“Bathroom Gurgle”), Bat for Lashes (“Daniel”), and Lily Allen (“The Fear”) prior to releasing his first DJ mix album, Fabriclive 51, in 2010. Dyment continued to be in demand as a remix producer — in 2012 alone, he handled tracks by Bonobo, Santigold, and AlunaGeorge, among others — but he also produced a hit of his own in March 2013 with “Need U (100%).” Co-produced by Futtize and featuring vocals from A*M*E, the track, reminiscent of early-’90s crossover house, topped the U.K. pop chart. One year on, in March 2014, Dyment hit the U.K. number one spot once again, this time with the Whitney Houston-sampling track “I Got U.”

WHO: KAMELOT & DRAGONFORCE
WHAT: Thomas Youngblood founded KAMELOT and quickly released their debut album Eternity. The press praised the album as one of most promising debuts of all time. The successor Dominion hit the stores, with an opus that was even more diverse and varied than the debut.

KamTV’s initial launch hurled the band into YouTube’s top 10 music channels and #1 Metal Channel, transcending all genres. With the release of The Black Halo, KAMELOT started on a headliner tour in Europe, North American, Japan and Brazil, with countless festivals around the globe. Following the hugely successful album, KAMELOT released their first live DVD, called One Cold Winter’s Night. The DVD was heralded by the press and fans alike and set a new standard for DVDs in the genre. Subsequently, KAMELOT presented themselves more sinister and soulful but have now returned to the melodic aspects of their multi-layered sound with the album, Silverthorn. Silverthorn went directly to the top, debuting at the #1 position on Amazon’s Heavy Metal Chart! Along with this amazing accomplishment, KAMELOT also impacted major charts in other categories including the #9 position on Billboard’s Hard Rock Chart, #24 on the Rock Charts, #79 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart, as well as appearing on multiple international charts.

But they became too powerful, and too defiant, and for their cosmic crimes were banished to the most insignificant planet in the universe…the seething mudball known as Earth. Millions of years passed, and they slumbered, until the pollution of your world de-thawed these creatures from their ageless coma…and now they stride the Earth, living gods, dedicated to one goal, the destruction of the human race, and the eradication of existence itself! Wait- that’s two goals! Hark to the hideous majesty of your MASTERS, rulers of Earth, the MIGHTY GWAR!!! It is I, ODERUS URUNGUS, lead singer of the sickest band in metal history, Earth’s only openly extra-terrestrial rock band, and the destined destroyers of not only the human race but also reality itself.
