Some songs shine brightest in the smooshed-together madness of a megamix, but others deserve their own moment in the spotlight. And still others cry out to be played in the wider scope of a complete discography.
Thats what R-E-S-P-E-C-T! is all about. Nightlife impresario Joe Budious dreamed up this Sunday bayside soiree to celebrate the legends that shape the soundtrack of our lives.
This is a lounge experience. Therell be none of the typical nonsense of the club scene. Its a tribute day for different artists. Were going to take someone new on every week, and its gonna be four hours of just that artists music, Budious says. We gotta admit the lineup is impressive. Upcoming celebrations will pay homage to Stevie Wonder, Bob Dylan, Prince, Motown, Stax Records, and the Fania All Stars, just for starters. In the month of February alone, theyll devote evenings to the likes of Bob Marley and Johnny Cash, and this Sunday, perennially popular synth-pop band Depeche Mode will get its moment to shine. Break it down to Strangelove, Just Cant Get Enough, and Personal Jesus from 4 p.m. to midnight.
