okay, time again for the mixtape connection. if you haven't been yet it's hosted by myself (richard), dr hitchcock (benet from the mixtape sessions on rdu), gretchen (missy g from girl school, before guitar media on rdu), dj indie slut (bill from human pleasure at hourly rates on rdu), and also a special guest in the form of nick harte from the shocking pinks. we'll all be playing dj sets filled with music you can dance to, not dance music. it's real indie bro. it's at capitol bar this friday night (the 28th) and it starts at 10pm. it's free, too, and for nothing you can hear the sweet sounds of bands like the following:
the cars, duran duran, 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, gang of four, the go! team, vitalic, arthur russell, ellen alien, junior boys, maximo park, tom vek, ladytron, cut copy, etc.
and with general styles playing: post-punk, 80s pop, electro, indie-rock, dance-punk, new wave and more.
this is the fourth edition of this "indie" club night, and they have all been super fun so far. rdunited members get 20% off tap beer and a free limited edition mix cd upon entry. capitol bar is a nice place, and the cool thing about these nights is that it's filled to the brim with nice people.
