drum & bass is shit. and the fact that it (and house) are the only genres offered in christchurch clubs (perhaps a tentatively sweeping statement, but the exageration is warranted in our fair city's musical scene, or lack of ) doesn't make christchurch's shitty winters any easier to get through. but now, indie kids have reason to rejoice. myself and two other rdu djs (benet [mixtape sessions] and missy g [girl school]) have organised a night of the more danceable side of indie music at capitol bar on july the 15th.
artists that in my set will include: out hud, the rapture, lcd soundsystem (plus other dfa tracks), !!!, mu, the human league, the soft pink truth, death from above 1979, the cure, blondie, talking heads, joy division, devo, new order, felix da housecat, the go! team, vitalic, arthur russell, ellen alien, junior boys, etc.
other genres over the night will include: indie pop & rock, electro, riot grrrrl, 80s pop, post-punk, dance-punk, pop. the overall idea though, is that anything is allowed, as long as it's good.
anyone as sick christchurch's lack-of-music scene as myself (not to mention everyone i know) should definitly come along. look out for more details on rdu and around town. feedback and ideas are welcome using the comments feature on this blog. it should be pretty fun, and if it all goes well it should become a monthly thing. we're hoping to get other bands and djs down here to play as well in the future.
mixtape connection - july 15 - capitol bar - 10pm onwards. free entry w/ free mixtape for rdunited members.
