The party was first supposed to be at Good Units, it moved to Williamsburg. This is the second edition of Dark Disco. Their main goal is to bring newborn talents with famous djs at the same party.
They won't only satisfy your ears but your eyes too. This is going to be one of those nights with great djs mixing with hudge screens behind them. I like this concept because it strangely doesn't disturb your focus on the music.

Fresh off the big shows in the SXSW festival, Toro Y Moi (Chaz Bundick) has now embarked on the first leg of his tour opening for The Ruby Suns. I was able to catch the third show of the tour in the very impressive Brooklyn Bowl. if you have an opportunity to see a show here or just want to hang out and throw some gutter balls, definitely check this place out. Besides the obscene amount of beautiful women galloping around, the venue itself is just big enough to enjoy a nice sized crowd and still maintain an intimate setting.
Chaz Bundick is Toro Y Moi, whom everyone should know by now is making his way up through the strange and bizarre world of indie rock. I was able to see him perform live last night at Cameo in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. The show was put together by Crush: Bands We Love To Dance To, which is a monthly party built by Jen Lyon and Ruthie that showcases bands they are seriously ‘crushing' on.
Every once in a while you'll hear a song and something just clicks. You don't know why but there's a certain feeling of familiarity that comes over you. You feel comfortable and confident in what you're hearing and that's the way I felt when I first heard Toro Y Moi's opening track "Blessa" 5 months ago.
Toro Y Moi is Chaz Bundick, a 23-year-old from South Carolina who just released Causers Of This on Carpark Records. The internet hype has been slowly gathering and with "Blessa" making top song lists all over hipster sites, it was only a matter of time before word spread about the music of Toro Y Moi.

Alan Palomo makes a triumphant return to NYC area with the first of three Neon Indian shows!
Alan Palomo is a busy guy these days. After an amazing set of shows during New York's CMJ (College Music Journal) run back in October, and a weeks-long trek through Europe, Palomo and his crew returned to New York with the first of three area shows, Tuesday, December 15 at the Mercury Lounge. Touring and traveling incessantly to promote the recent critically-acclaimed release Psychic Chasms, Neon Indian did not disappoint during Tuesday's show, which proved to be a wonderful homecoming for Palomo.
