Look at our pleasant surprise what we found at the barber shop. Our favourite hang out, Soju Bar, Kreuzberg, Berlin, got featured in the it-press. Does this mean, they have now little girls with heart-charm necklaces coming to gigs of people like Traxxxxx, Dirty Crew or the Hit Squad? Funny, but good. Just watch them [...]
As harbingers of party vibes go, they don't get much better or more ridiculous than Dan Deacon . In all our years of attending gigs, we can say without doubt we have never had as much fun as when attending his shows, which are to all intensive purposes a children's birthday party soundtracked by high octane and somewhat mental spazztronica. Games we have played whilst at a Dan Deacon concert include the following; forming a human tunnel out of the back of the room, down the stairs and out onto the street leaving only the band in the venue; musical bumps; [...]
Dagnammit, if it didn't happen again. I've been running Gigantic for nearly six years, and DJing at clubs and promoting for about 14 years, and I have the same experience over and over again. At the start of the night, early on, I always worry and get stressed that it's going to be quiet. Then the place fills up, and I relax. This happens so often that you think I would adjust and relax from the start, but I can't. Tamara can testify to this, as I torture her every week with the same deal. At the [...]
Jack-of-all-trades Steffaloo puts ethereal spin on Feist, Jesse Woods, and yes, even Wham!
George Michael has announced a fully-orchestral show for Dublin's O2.
A couple nights ago, I was in LA for the Invisible Children White Arrows benefit residency. I invited my friends Steffaloo and J Irvin Dally to open. It was the first time I actually got to see Steph perform so I was stoked, she is just as sweet on stage as she is in person. Andrea and I watched her, jokingly (but actually very seriously) scheming a three piece girl band that includes Steffaloo, and us, playing whatever instrument is easiest to learn. We're working on it. In all honesty, her voice is gorgeous; [...]

Beyonce and Usher both performed there recently despite Bjork 's little rebellion during a 2008 performance in Shanghai when she chanted "Tibet! Tibet!" While [...]

Less art gallery and more opium den, Danger Danger Gallery, with its unmarked entryway on 50 th and spruce, is completely imperceptible to those not in “the know.” A small red door opens to a constricted hallway. Graffiti covers the walls from bases to ceiling, exuding a vibe that might change depending on the viewer’s familiarity level: after spending time there perhaps it becomes of a tapestry of previous visitors, a monument to the people who came before. But for the first-timer, the graffiti, coupled with narrow walkway and dim lighting, certainly can make one think they’re in for [...]
