Belgian/American group Lords of Acid brought their odd blend of electronic/dance/acid house/hard rock/industrial music to Baltimore Soundstage recently. I was there to photograph the show!
Distinguished house duo 808 State made a rare US appearance at Moogfest 2017 last week, entertaining guests at the conference VIP opening party and then returning later for a full live set at the Durham Armory in North Carolina on May 18.
Going to Moogfest 2017 next month? Parklife DC recommends four acts to catch while you’re there!
Pete Tong has seen it all — as radio host, producer, and DJ. The man was there at the start of acid house, and he famously signed Run DMC and Salt-n-Pepa to landmark record deals with London Records.
The Englishman recently began a new chapter of his life, relocating to Los Angeles. He helped Clear Channel Entertainment to launch Evolution dance while still maintaining his popular BBC Radio 1 programs. In addition to being a radio host and a producer, Pete also maintains his tremendous presence as a DJ, taking up no less than three residencies in the United States. He maintains an All Gone residency at Sound Nightclub in his new home of Los Angeles, while he also visits Miami regularly to DJ at Story and SLS Las Vegas at new club LiFE.
In addition to that, the All Gone Pete Tong brand has gone worldwide with festivals like the Winter Music Conference, Creamfields, TommorrowWorld, and SW4.
Well, you don’t have to travel the world to see Pete Tong, because Pete is coming to DC to spin at Soundcheck on Thursday, Sept. 22. What a brilliant opportunity to see a living legend in an intimate space right in our own city!
But in this case, hearing is believing. Become a believer, and listen to what Pete has been doing on Soundcloud:
“The electronic dance music scene in the USA has reached a critical mass and the opportunities for our world are taking us into uncharted territory. I feel now it’s essential to be in the middle of all that,” Pete said in a recent press release.
Sail into uncharted territory with Pete this Thursday! Tickets are available online.
