New York City
Note: There are two shows featured because we are torn which one is the most special – enjoy!
Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs @ Webster Hall |Purchase Tickets
If you have not heard of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs, we highly recommend you make a trip to Webster Hall to check them out. Not only are they a DA favorite, but they have emerged as a major artist to watch, with an Essential Mix under the belt already. Check this out – this should be a real treat.
Julio Bashmore @ Le Poisson Rouge |Purchase Tickets
This Thursday, New York party outfits The Dog & Pony Show and Turbotax team up to bring the highly regarded Julio Bashmore to Le Poisson Rouge. His voyages to American soil are few and far between, so his return will surely be something to enjoy. Le Poisson Rouge, with its small underground vibe, will offer a perfectly intimate setting to get down to some swanky deep house grooves. This past year, Bashmore prospered with the release of his summer anthem “Au Seve,” and the creation of his own imprint, Boardwalk Records. If you’re in the mood for some authentic dance music chock full of BIG BASS LINES and deep disco groves, make Julio Bashmore’s gig your Thursday night party stop.
