WMC week is upon us, and while we promised ourselves we wouldn’t take on too much as we’re busy preparing for SWEATSTOCK, we’re still involved in or excited to be attending some pretty awesome stuff this week!
Wednesday night you’ll find us at Purdy for the Off The Radar/(786) WMC Showcase with Boy Crisis and/or the Nite Jewel/Tanlines/MillionYoung more show at Grand Central. Win tickets to Nite Jewel right here on the Sweat blog!
Thursday during the day are two fine options… 1) We’ll be chillin’ The Standard from 3-8pm with a few crates of records at the Vinyl Collective event! Come out for free Red Stripe Light and to buy or swap some wax.
2) Thursday at Sweat, the WATCHMEN WMC Showcase will be in the house, with their crew presiding over the turntables from 4-10pm. Full info on the flier below or you can have their 3D/DJ tell you about it…
For those who don’t give a damn about WMC, Thursday night there’s a sweet show at Churchill’s with The Fresh & Onlys (San Fran), The Jacuzzi Boys, Woven Bones (Austin) and BEINGS. Starts at 9pm and cover is $7. Anything can happen, but we’re pretty sure you won’t see any glow sticks here.
Our main event! Friday night we are extremely happy to be co-presenting FIXED LOVES DURRR at The Vagabond!!!! The UK’s EROL ALKAN returns as Disco 3000, along with Aeroplane (Belgium – who made our favorite remix last year), Rory Phillips, live sets by Pink Skull + Jessica 6 (formerly of Hercules and Love Affair), Dave P, JDH, and LA’s CLASSIXX, who were hands-down one of the best guest DJs we’ve ever brought to The Vagabond.
This is going to be an insanely awesome night – great music with no velvet rope hassle. The New Times already named it one of their Editor’s Picks for best WMC parties. Advance tickets are only $15 and available right here.
Btw, you can peep The Vagabond’s full line-up of WMC events including their annual parties with Louie Vega + John Digweed and buy tickets here.
Also Friday and Saturday of course, is the mother-of-all-WMC-events: ULTRA. Orbital, Passion Pit, Faithless, Major Lazer, tons of dubstep, Green Velvet, Afrobeta… You know we’ll be there.
Sunday, if we’re still alive, we’ll be back at The Vagabond for a night with the godfather of electrofunk – AFRIKA BAMBAATAA! Tickets are only $10 in advance.
Have a great week everyone and BE SAFE! When in doubt, have an extra bottle of water and call a cab. Love!
