Oh boy, it’s that time of year again.  For those old school heads, it is that weekend which some of our friends refer to as “their Christmas.”   This is the time of sweeping synths, pounding beats, and 20-hour days of unrelenting, chest collapsing techno, hoorah.

So, we, among with many of our close friends will have the luxurious experience of playing, and eating, and drinking at an amazing pop-up restaurant, music event, and all day drink-a-thon of a most delicious assortment of culinary, aural, and libation-ous treats.  We are super stoked to be a part of such a tremendous lineup of musical talent and being able to drink well and eat well is beyond magical.  Please join us, if you will.

Daily tickets are $10 at the door before 10pm or $15 after 10.  Weekend passes are also available (all three days of the event) for $25.  A special food menu will be featured by Corridor Sausage Co.’s The Grindhouse food truck and Jessie Knot of Cafe Urban Pheasant.

Red Bull House of Art w/ Drew Pompa

On every third Thursday of the month, Detroit’s art institutions keep their doors open late in an effort to foster, promote, and allow people to revel in the arts, giving those who may not otherwise have an opportunity to get their art fixes during “school nights” an opportunity to enjoy Detroit Art and to mix with the artists that create it.   Art Detroit Now, a local non-profit organization, makes this possible.

The Red Bull House of Art is one of many participating galleries that work with Art Detroit Now.  The Red Bull House of Art will keep its main gallery, as well as both artist’s studios, open on Thursday May 16th, 2013 for patrons to mingle and mix among the art.  Drew Pompa, label founder, dj, and producer, will be providing music to accompany the displayed art from 5pm-9pm.  Stop by and promote the arts with us, you will feel relaxed, rejuvenated, and inspired.

Lost Soul 09 – Featuring The Siege

April 19, 2013 at 1:38 am

lost_soul_09

Time again, eh?  Better douse those butterfly wings with something lighter these days, the brown liquor just won’t do.  We want to be in the present, channeling the funkiest of vibrations, not sludgy, but still heavy, yes, heavy and bright.  You may night be able to feel it yet, but after we hop on the #33 to 82nd/Jackson Heights and then transfer to the #7 it will only be just a bit more until we will all be together again, living it, doing it.

We haven’t had the honor to play for you all very often but that is all about to change, and with the quickness.  Our next show will usher in a new era for us, one where we promise to always tell the truth, promise to be better, and promise to play harder and more often.  The future is now.  See you at the Wreck Room on Friday, April 26th.  We about to bring some heat to Brooklyn, boyyyy.

Featuring:
The Siege (We Are All Machines / Detroit)
Alan Boomer (Lost Soul / NYC)
Volvox (Class Moon II / BK)
Jackson Lee (Mystical Disco / BK)

Aphotic Segment @ The Sugar House

January 28, 2013 at 6:52 pm

The Sugar House is one of Detroit’s newest watering holes.  They serve a bevy of flips, fizzes, classics and craft cocktails, where the crew of bartenders effortlessly blends spirits that are both boozy and packed with flavor, lots of flavor.  The décor is both subtly understated and stylish; a chandelier with its brass bothria illuminating the mullions dissecting the Michigan Avenue window panes is juxtaposed by the dimly-lit and unassuming tables pushed up against exposed brick walls, adorned with a variety of taxidermic Bovidae heads.  It all gives the impression that patrons have options that range from rare whiskeys and Italian Amaros to canned beer.

Even better, this fine establishment plays host to a local record collector’s leisurely party of listening pleasures every unsuspecting Sunday night.  Chad Pratt, of Ghostly International’s Midwest Product, plays musically diverse sets  that traverse throughout rare soul, funk, post-punk, new-wave and electronic.  Though the craft cocktail parades itself in stunning, Manhattan and New Orleanian glory at the bar, the music shambles with odd grace by your eardrum at an approachable and convivial gait. On a regular Sunday night at the Sugar House, music and intimate atmosphere balance in measured harmony, much like subtly paired aperitifs and ryes; a mélange of flavor and booziness.   Sounds like an Aphotic Segment!

The Siege’s Drew Pompa will be joining Chad on Sunday, February 10th for a night of music, libations, laughs and retrospection.

Featuring:
Chad Pratt (Ghostly International) – DJ
Drew Pompa (We Are All Machines) – DJ
