DJ Falcon at Banana Split Sundae

Posted on 27 October 2008 by shaunt

Just announced: [actually… it’s not even announced yet]

This Sunday night WILL be epic. I have no doubt. It’s a Roulé Records reunion at LAX, as DJ Falcon will be headlining this week’s Banana Split Sundae. DJ Falcon is the label mate of Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter, who released solo material on Thomas’ Roulé Records in the late 1990s. Roulé Records has a true cult following, particularly from die hard fans of Daft Punk. Enough of the history lesson; if you want to know more about these guys, look it up on discogs or wikipedia.

We are really stoked for this event. It’s going to be a sure-shot attempt at suicide for us [as well as a few others who will be spending the weekend going back and forth from LA to Vegas and back] to get to this event, but this is one of those MUST-GO events.

One more thing: if you look at the flier it says “and a super special banging guest…” Considering the festivities in town this weekend, who can this be? When there’s smoke, there’s fire. It’s going be off the hook. 

Again… DJ Fucking Falcon. Be there……………………. rsvp

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!
