It was party time at 9:30 Club recently when Sofi Tukker danced onto the stage to herald good times ahead — at least for one night! Paivi Salonen went along for the ride, and she has these colorful pix of the duo to show for it.
New Yorkers Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern released their debut full-length album, Treehouse, last year, and they returned recently with a new EP, Dancing on the People. On Oct. 23, Sofi Tukker performed the new music at 9:30 Club during their RIP Shame World Tour — on “a mission to kill shame one loose dance party at a time.”

Around the midpoint of the show, Sofi Tukker presented “Like This” from the new record and closed with “Fantasy,” the big single from Dance on the People. They played at least five selections from Treehouse, peppering the set with “Fuck They,” “Baby, I’m a Queen,” and “Energia,” among others.
Sophie and Tucker returned to the stage for an encore performance of “Drinkee,” the house tune that put them on the music map in 2016.
