SATURDAY JUNE 30th @ The Squealing Pig:
A local favorite after their appearance at my birthday party last year, Holmes Wilson's Karaokecrime project will bring interactivity, punk rock energy and the indulgence of cheesy pop music to The Pig. Using the powerful software Ableton Live in a truly unique way, Karaokecrime allows participants to collaborate in creating a "mash-up" as the they sing (or shout) the wrong lyrics in unison over a instrumental karaoke backing track. These songs are presented the form of sweaty, unrelenting mega-mix of Euro-dance-pop, Top 40 Hip Hop and Indie Electro with Holmes presiding as the demonic "M.C.".
There's a brief review of the experience embedded in this New York Times review of the show Karaokecrime did with Providence/Brooklyn heroes Javelin.
FRIDAY and SATURDAY JULY 6TH+ 7TH at the Underground and The Squealing Pig:
SNAKE SOUNDSYSTEM (Boston) and JASPER STAPLETON (NYC)Creators of SubTropix, a weekly global bass party at the Milky Way in Boston, Snake are among the reigning Soundsystems playing Moombahton and Tropical Bass in New England. Selectors Fuzzy Fotch + Ted Thousand will be appearing with me at the opening night party for the Fleet Moves dance festival in Wellfleet on Thursday the 5th and will be sticking around all weekend to light up the dance.
Bringing a bit of New York flare to our post July 4th weekend will be Jasper Stapleton, a sought-after DJ from the loft, rooftop and hotel lounge scene of Manhattan right now.
SATURDAY JULY 14th @ The Pig:
SLEEPERS WORK (L.A.)Hailing from the Cape and currently residing in Los Angeles, Bill Flynn is a link between the worlds of indie rock (having played bass in band like St. Vincent and The Prigs), experimental electronic, minimal techno and party-rocking DJs. Will he be dropping the kind of spacious, beautiful music he makes under the Sleeper's Work moniker like this?
FRIDAY JULY 20th @ The Underground
OXYCONTINENTALOne of the Architects of Boston's "Pico Picante" parties, Oxycontinental plays both towards the tropical and Latin thrusts in recent dance music and the cosmopolitan electronics of the clubs of "real" Latin America, from which he hails. Expect cumbia, house, and floor-filling global bass bangers.
SATURDAY JULY 21th @ The Pig
HARSH BOYS (NYC)Dylan Going has somehow reconciled his backgrounds in the Providence noise scene and Brooklyn's disco world with Harsh Boys, an analog techno project that will certainly be the first of it's kind ever in Provincetown. If you've never seen actual hardware creating electronic beats live, this performance is a must.
Followed by what is sure to be an ill eclectic DJ set which might sound like this:
Friday and Saturday August 3rd and 4th @ The Underground and the Pig
PAJARITOSDJs Riombamba and Malagon will bring the insurgent post-geographical fun of their acclaimed Pico Picante parties (named best Friday night Party by the Boston Dig) to Provincetown. Global Bass, Electro-Cumbia, Latin remix, Soca, and African electronic hits will blast and people of all sorts will dance all weekend long.
Aside from the acts listed here you can also look forward to surprise visits from Providence's Midnight Mongo Sound, Local indie rockers The Daggers, house maestro DJ Zero and more...
