Upcoming Weekend in LA – October 4 & 5

Posted on 30 September 2008 by shaunt

This Saturday, get yourself to downtown LA for the annual LA Weekly Detour Festival. It will feature over 25 acts on 4 outdoor stages, plus vendors and art installations, spread across 6 city blocks around City Hall. We wouldn’t miss it.

This year’s headliners include genre-bending proggies The Mars Volta and irrepressible Gypsy-punk collective Gogol Bordello. If it’s electronic music you want, you can catch the likes of the spiders-gone-italo-disco-duo The Bloody Beetroots, or DJ sets from Institubes label-mates Surkin and Para One. The full line-up can be found on the official Detour website. Tickets are available for $40 on ticketmaster.

Detour ends at midnight, but if you haven’t had enough, equip yourself with a Redbull [or any substance of your choice] and head over to the Avalon for DJ sets from Ed Bangers’ own DJ Mehdi and iheartcomix man-in-charge Franki Chan. Sorry kids: this one is 21+. Presale tickets are available for $15 on wanttickets.

Sunday morning, as you slowly but surely regain your consciousness, get yourself out of bed and walk over to your laptop and check back here for photos. If you’re still hungover, a nice shower and a fiery Bloody Mary should remedy the situation. By the evening you should be feeling great. If you didn’t catch him at the Avalon [or simply have no recollection if it], DJ Mehdi is rumored to be playing a DJ set at the weekly Banana Split Sundaes event at LAX. If you want to improve your chances of getting in, show up early and RSVP!

Posted on 27 September 2008 by shaunt

It was a no-show for Calvin Harris last night at the Fonda Theatre, but this didn’t stop MSTRKRFT and A-Trak from committing another killing on the dance-floor and leaving the crowd begging for more.

Daft Punk Brought the Pyramid; Meet the Cube

Posted on 23 September 2008 by shaunt

French house producer Etienne de Crecy has borrowed the concept of the Daft Punk pyramid and introduced a cube-based live setup for his 2008 tour. The geometric figure is on tour and may arrive at a festival near you. There are no dates announced in the US or the UK quite yet, but if you happen to be in Paris you can catch Etienne de Crecy at the Social Club October 25th.

    Kavinsky – 1986 (Blazer EP)

    Posted on 15 September 2008 by levon

    Kavinsky, everyone’s favorite french zombie DJ, recently released his Blazer EP on July 1st. The limited edition picture disk record includes his greatest hits like Testarossa Autodrive, Grand Canyon, and Wayfarer. The standout track on the record is 1986, which was originally released as a demo version on his 1986 EP back in 2007. The track features Kavinsky’s signature Night Rider-esque synthesized progressions which he is said to often blast in his red ferrari as he speeds down the streets of Paris by night.
