Who's got the funk?
On Thursday, March 8, you'll get a chance to find out as Poplife,
Super Music Group, and Gotta Dance Dirty bring a two-room, eight-act electronic
extravaganza to Grand Central in search of the perfect beat. Think of it as a
little Winter Music Conference warm-up party.
Miami artists with some serious funk stashed away.
There's a solid chance of nu-disco when Brass Knuckles takes
the stage. This trio incorporates DJing, live production, and instrumentation
into its sets -- even bringing a sexy sax man. And no doubt, everyone loves
a shirtless saxophone virtuoso.
After all that amped-up DJ craziness, Amtrac will close
out the night with his unique blend of post-punk meets electro. Like Brass
Knuckles, Amtrac doesn't just stand there and mix records. He actually sings
and produces his music on the spot. Think of him as a one-man EDM band.
The headliners will get support early in the night from Super
Music Group's Derek Walin and Nick Daniels while Indonesian rockers Little Rok, Miami's Los De La Vega, storm trooper duo Lazerdisk Party Sex, and comparatively normal-looking Troy Kurtz invade Grand Central's upstairs party room, The Garret.
Be there and don't leave the funk at home.
