It’s Cal Tjader meets Stereolab meets Brazil 66 in a bar in Berlin. Drink up people–it’s LUSHY! Bossa beat flavored alterna-pop that goes down nice and easy. Lounge-y and danceable with hints of exotica and a touch of electronica…nutty and hip…intriguing and soothing–must see live! Lushy concocts a refreshing pop style that blends original samples and Bossa beats with elements of vintage-Latin jazz, exotica, surf, new wave and sixties pop to create their own distinctive intercontinental sound. Most importantly, they have established a solid reputation for originality far beyond their roots in the lounge and exotica scene. Don’t miss this rare Portland appearance!
THE APOLLO FOUR
The countdown has begun…Prepare to launch…!
The Apollo Four are GO!
The Apollo Four are blasting on to the scene by taking liberal doses of lounge & exotica, blended with a pinch o’ kooky kitsch, and an added dash of rockin’ 1960s cool to ignite their solid instrumental spacey surf music base. Absolutely entertaining… supremely danceable… always shaken, never stirred. If your neighborhood Secret Agent Go-Go Lounge had a house band, it would be The Apollo Four!
DJ DREW GROOVE
Keeping things movin’ & a groovin’ throughout the night, expect to hear the way out & wildest in Hip Shakin’ Soul, Lounge, RnB, Tiki, Spy-Fi, Mod, Jazz, Surf, Exotica, Discothèque & Other In Sounds from Way Out! In his non-stop quest as a vinyl archeologist, Drew fearlessly travels deep into the sonic jungles and dusty crates to excavate a tantalizing mix of wax from the primitive, pulsing, wild & exotic to the suave, swanky & narcotic. Grab a cocktail and swing…!
