It's a big night in dance music! First off, Hyperdub boss Kode9 headlines at the Cove in Williamsburg. He was spectacular at the Winter Garden way back in 2008, and this night should be the same. The venue's at 106 North 6th Street (between Wythe and Berry), and entry is free before 11 pm, $5 between 11 and midnight, and $7 after midnight. The price is right!
A couple doors down the street, the Bunker guys will be doing their thing. Tonight's guests include Virgo, who play Chicago house, a genre that the Wall Street Journal (!) describe as "the most sinuous and irresistible" form of dance music. Also on the bill: Detroit's Patrick Russel, who has released stuff on French label Circus Company, sharing a label with the likes of Dave Aju, Seth Troxler and Nôze. Tickets are $20 at the door, but well worth it.
Fresh off a fantastic set at the Italians Do It Better showcase at Webster Hall, Mike Simonetti will be taking over the decks at the Standard Hotel's rooftop bar Le Bain, which has previously hosted Ladytron. The venue is at 848 Washington Street in the West Village, and there is no cover.
Other shows of note: Art Department, which had Resident Advisor's top track of 2010, will be playing at a secret location tonight. There should be tickets at the door, but no idea where it is. And tomorrow night, Omar-S will return to Mister Saturday Night.
Have fun and stay safe, people!
