Update! December shows

Sorry it's been ages. Working toward making up for it, here is a breakdown of a lot of awesome things happening this month (& next year). The complete list (which will continue to be updated over the next few days) is in the column on the left, but some shows/parties I am particularly looking forward to are below:

Tonight and tomorrow the Sights are at Bruar Falls and Cake Shop. I first saw the Sights at Southpaw 4 years ago, where they were opening for the Caesars. Basically...they have a very classic rock sound, which is nice. Very good "hang out in a bar and down some beers with your friends" rock. At least that is what I am calling it, as of right now. Check them out.

Friday night (December 4th) Flashing Lights is happening at 88 Palace. I saw Boy 8-Bit there last year and it was one of the most memorable parties I've been to. Everyone was going crazy. It's in a dim sum restaurant in a mini-mall in Chinatown for crying out loud.

Anyway...the main reason I am going is Electrodrone is about to have a small stroke over Todd Edwards. I haven't seen him this excited (over anything that isn't dubstep) since Soulwax. And I had a pretty banging Todd Edwards remix of a Surkin track on my computer should be good.

RSVP (& preview some jams)

The amount going on Saturday night is insane. Lately, seeing friends win out over who's deejaying, so I am forgoing much awesomeness to hang out with them at Sullivan Room (and also check out Mixer Assassin...half of whom I saw deejay at a friend's bday and was great!). Some other awesome things happening that I will be skipping, but recommend:

Ghostland Observatory killed it at All Points West this summer - very dancey and electronic, but delivered in a very rocking way live. They will be doing the same at Terminal 5 Saturday night. Friendly Fires have been great every time I've seen them (except maybe the last time I saw them at Le Poisson Rouge...though I might have just been cranky b/c of the ridiculous wait before their set) and are playing a sold out show at Webster Hall.

Ewan Pearson is excellent and is deejaying Mister Saturday Night at Market Hotel. Check out an interview here and Ewan's Groove Column.

Advanced tickets available here.

Also on Saturday, the aforementioned Sights are at Maxwell's and Fixed has brought over one of the less on the radar Ed Banger's, Breakbot to deejay the back room at Public Assembly:

On Sunday, (one of the best parties - vote for them at Paper's Nightlife Awards) Sunday Best rages on at the Bell House with residents Doug Singer, Eamon Harkin, and Justin Carter.

Looking ahead...

December 8 - Scion A/V Presents: A Night At Made To Play CD Release Party with Jesse Rose ( I ALWAYS miss this guy), Riva Starr, Zombie Disco Squad, Oliver$, Idiotproof, Gina Turner, and Alex English at Love. RSVP

December 11 - Brandon Eaves (Rude...has great taste in music) at Sputnik

December 18 - Lee Fields (is as close as you can get to seeing James Brown perform live) at Southpaw

December 20 - Tortured Soul (is a band that performs house music, live) at Santos

December 31 - Famous Friends New Years Eve with Trouble & Bass and Party Like Us Records hosted by Finger on the Pulse with AC Slater, B.Rich, Udachi, The Captain, Star Eyes, Jubilee, VDRK, and Bradley D (not thinking about NYE at all yet, but here is one option)

February 25 - Ulrich Schnauss (is fucking amazing!) at the Bell House. I always feel kind of ridiculous when I get THIS excited about someone who makes very mellow, atmospheric music. The truth starts off mellow and works up to a beautiful bang. And the last time I saw Ulrich (opening up for Sasha...don't ask!) his set got really banging at the end...very synthy and crunchy. I loved it. Can't wait for this show in February.

Hopefully more updates will be on their way soon. Have an awesome weekend!
