Bad news for record geeks: The DJ set/performance by Black Devil Disco Club scheduled for the Vagabond this Friday night is canceled. And although DJ bookings by people with complicated names are a dime a dozen in this city, this one was rather special.

He first appeared in the late '70s with an outer-space sounding record of electronic music that, well, nobody got, and quickly sank. Luckily, people like the Chemical Brothers and Aphex Twin rediscovered it, and in recent years Fevre has been producing more weird, future disco, this time with updated technology.
