$5 Before 11pm, $10 after 11pm. Costumes are encouraged, and all ages are welcome.
TRAM Planet Records and New Love Unlimited have partnered together to host 2 wild touring acts that you won't be forgiven to miss: Mx. Silkman and Dungeon Acid. Additionally, we will sustain a state of madness through out the night with local acts Mischa Lively, Charlie Conway, Dzee, and Limited Network!
This party isn't just a launchpad for hedonistic rapture from daily struggle and obligations of life. It is a celebration, as we are happy to share that 2 of our DJs have new releases that will be available for both streaming and vinyl record enthusiasts by the time this party kicks off. The night is guaranteed to be a special experience for all dancers, freaks, and artists in attendance!
MX. SILKMAN, DJ set (IN TRAINING) —
Resident and cofounder of midwest queer-centric dance collective IN TRAINING, Mx. Silkman weaves together industrial rhythms, cold minimal wave, moody acid and paranoia-ridden driving techno. We are happy to celebrate her new release as Auton on Tram Planet records. Titled "Tute Bianche", it's inspired by the social movements from '94-'01, where white overall-wearing demonstrators in Italy, and other parts of the world, protested anti-globalization. Auton channels this militant ethos with conscious and minimalist techno that embodies the movement's "padded bloc" tactics. You may have recently heard her track ‘Here We Come, Bastards’ in Nina Kraviz's set from Dimensions Festival!
DUNGEON ACID, live set (iDeal Recordings, Copenhagen DK) —
Dungeon Acid is a man / machine communication unit designed for the dance floor. Operated by Jean-Louis Huhta, he uses/abuses synthesizers, drum machines, and effects, improvising to create live, raw, acidic-funky-techno. Alongside releases on iDeal recordings, F.I.T. Sound, Klasse Recordings, and more, he also runs his own imprint Huhta Home Studio. Did we mention he used to play with crust punks Anti Cimex, touring the UK alongside Napalm Death in a van with no seats?
MISCHA LIVELY, DJ set (New Love Unlimited, RACECAR) —
Local artist and DJ Mischa Lively will be setting the mood for the night with an opening DJ set. Mischa Lively debuted in 2016 on the release "Pillow", which garnered support for it's left-of-center dance arrangements sourced from his own drum recordings. Tonight we celebrate his new record "More", the inaugural release on his own label New Love Unlimited. NLU donates 10% of all event and music profits to support the Equal Justice Initiative (www.eji.org) who challenges mass incarceration and racial injustice.
DZEE, live set (Tram Planet) —
DZee is one third of the groundbreaking label and party series Tram Planet, and one half of the dynamic-acid-duo Future DZ. No stranger to putting in the effort required to cultivate a loyal scene and play live shows, DZee is now ripping sets as a solo artist. After you buy the new Auton and Mischa records, give DZee a big "thank you", as this will be their last Nashville party (for now) until moving to Asheville, NC! We will miss you Red Pepper Ripper!
CHARLIE CONWAY, live set —
After years spent recording Nashville bands, mixing their records, and playing various instruments, Charlie Conway spends these days wielding his own brand of mangled electro. When he's not supplying the nice speakers for our parties or dancing in the the fog, he is is dropping jaws with weirder and wilder arrangements each time we see him play out.
Limited Network, tag DJ set —
Apt pupils of exceedingly fast BPMs, this young, energetic duo will be pushing us in to the red as they close out the night with tag-team record mixing antics.
Our events are intended to be a safe space for autonomy. All are welcome regardless of gender, sexuality, race, class and ability. Please practice good consent on the dancefloor. If anyone interferes with your enjoyment of this event by harassing, groping or otherwise behaving in an oppressive manner, please let venue staff know and we will have them removed.
