Hot Chip‘s Joe Goddard has found a new musical venture along with Raf Rundell which they call The 2 Bears. Most recently, the guys have been picked up by Southern Fried Records and have released their Fried & Tested Mix last week which featured 13 tracks from the likes of NT89, Malente, Supabeatz, and many more. Also, as you may know, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs will be starting off his North American tour this Saturday at HARD in Los Angeles, so check tour dates below and make sure to catch his much anticipated performance if he’ll be in a city near you.

Happy Halloween week everyone! I hope you are all getting your weird, raved-out costumes together for the epic weekend ahead. As mentioned last week, we have a HUGE lineup for this Friday at CONTROL with a DJ set from Hot Chip and LIVE performances by Danger! and Drop The Lime. Now I know that some of you are on the fence about going to Hard Haunted Mansion and I am in no way trying to stray you from the amazing music that you would hear at the Shrine, but if your pockets aren’t as deep as they usually are or you feel like dancing to some great tunes in a more intimate setting, I definitely recommend coming to party with us at the Avalon. We will be holding down The House Party as usual with our good friends sweetFA, Mr. Anderson, Zander, and other special guest DJs. In addition, the Avalon and Bardot are teaming up this week, so Dim Mak’s Autoerotique will be playing upstairs along with a few other artists.
Please RSVP at JONAHDANCESDIRTY@gmail.com to be on the GDD guestlist for discount tickets (10$).
As usual, here are some tracks to groove to while constructing your sweet bubble wrap jumpsuit that you’re going to wear this Friday/Saturday.
bonus! a pretty awesome (and long) video of Danger! performing live.
i always feel the need to put new fake blood up on here whenever i get a chance, so here is his new remix of hot chip’s “touch too much”. If you are in the LA area before Christmastime you should definitely stop by the Vanguard on the 17th to see a free show sponsored by Scion. hey, i’ll be there, so you should too! have a good week everyone.
