FRIDAY FEB 1 ~ THE SPARE ROOM – 9PM
LUSHY * THE SATIN CHAPS * DJ DREW GROOVE
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!
THE SATIN CHAPS
The pocket is played out. The Satin Chaps live in the groove. Hailing from Portland, Oregon, the European style go-go/ soul octet ply their trade in the largely uncharted waters of 60’s groove-pop composers like Ingfried Hoffman, Gert Wilden, and Heidi Brühl. To make it palatable stateside (and to make it their own), they mix hints of American purveyors like Memphis soul kings the Bar-Kays and Pac NW garage legends the Wailers.
Formed around the core of drummer Luke Strahota (he of the High Violets), bassist Eric Hedford (of Dandy Warhols fame), and keyboardist Peter Dean (former Fast Computers frontman), the ensemble has exploded forth from its inception in 2010. Aided by the howl of their three-piece horn section, the whiz-bang of their Hammond organ, and the percussion necessities to make it all sparkle, the Chaps specialize in sweaty, booty-shaking, good-times music.
DJ DREW GROOVE
DJ Drew Groove keeps things moving and a grooving with a way out discotheque mix of Hip Shakin Soul, Garage, Jazz, Beat and Go-Go Records throughout the night. Can you dig it baby!
