MOBY LOVES SANTOS!


"Last night, in honor of the legendary choreographer Bill T. Jones and the 25th anniversary of the Arnie Zane Dance Company, a gaggle of limber dancers, artsy types (including Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy), and the one-and-only Moby turned out to cut a rug at Chinatown hotspot Santos’ Party House. Musical guests included Chin Chin and Arthur Aviles with a short DJ set by Moby himself to properly end a genuinely good evening." - BlackBook

SESSIONS AT SANTA'S!

This week's SESSIONS presented by SPENCER SWEENEY and STEREOGUM is just around the corner and what a better way to look forward to it than to gaze back at the illuminated, fun-filled mess of a party that happened last week! Quite possibly the best and weirdest Tuesday night on the planet, SESSIONS is a trash bag littered habitat that would make Oscar the Grouch swoon. The amazing DANIEL HIGGS and NATHAN BELL performed separate sets while ANDREW WK looked on through a hole he ripped in one of the draping garbage bags.

SESSIONS IS ON A ROLL!

I dare you to find a Tuesday night in Manhattan to rival SESSIONS. Hell, I dare you to find another night that's able to pull the NYC elite the way SESSIONS does and it's only in it's 2nd week! It's intense and totally out of the box... a true landmark! Everyone enjoyed a night packed with dancing, performance art, spoken word and music.

A LIVE WEEKEND AT SANTOS

3/13/2009
BANG CAMARO
Bang Camaro are Boston’s ultra-group. 20 singers strong with intricate riffs, these guys specialize in writing anthems for awesome. Precision delivery, blistering soloes and glorious harmonies classify their sound. The result is somewhere between the arena rock of the 70’s and the thrash revolution of the early 80’s combined with a modern indie sensibility. Imagine a boys choir gets lost in the forest of Boston for decades and then suddenly emerging, its members hardened and grizzled from surviving off of bear and dragon meat. Now imagine them getting the shit kicked out of them by a badass rock band. That band is Bang Camaro.

TAB THE BAND
Beginning a new paragraph in the history of rock (yeah, I went there) is TAB the Band. Three aggressive punkers push the physical limits of their instruments, but here’s where they cinch it: they’ve got chops. Their fully fleshed out guitar riffs herald a rhythm section that falls somewhere between Motörhead and Sonic Youth. This is the music you’d listen to if your Thunderbird had a CD player.

KITTENS ABLAZE
You might lose your girlfriend due to this band’s name, but Kittens Ablaze’s music is good enough to warrant almost any personal loss. This pop rock ensemble, which a violinist, a cellist, two keyboardists and the occasional harmonica, create layered and expressive tunes that find common ground for punks and folk-rockers. Not to mention they’ve got a sense of melodic harmony that would make Iron Maiden proud.

BLK JKS
Repping South Effrica is BLK JKS, whose ethereal brand of rock and roll is an answer to some long-standing musical questions. Though new to the American limelight, they’ve been a phenomenon in Johannesburg for a decade. Fusing the melodic and rhythmic structure of dub reggae and afro-beat with the distorted and eerie tambers of punk and noise music, BLK JKS has a raw, driving sound in stark contrast to that other famous South African band. Their polyrhythmic approach recalls bebop and progressive rock. Highly recommended for fans of Wayne Shorter, TV On The Radio, Paul Simon, Bad Brains, Led Zeppelin, Battles, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Antibalas, puppies and/or ice cream. No Birkenstocks necessary.

PREACHER AND THE KNIFE (ft DENNIS YOUNG)
Begging the difference between minister and witch doctor is Preacher and the Knife (not Preacher, not The Knife). Bombastic and pulsing percussion is at the helm, alongside abrasive, Gary-Burger-esque vocals and pummeling guitars, creating the soundtrack to a post-punk faith healing. Their dark and supernatural arrangements accompany poetry that focuses on religion and superstition. The result is a musical exorcism that brings a stale music scene back from purgatory. For this performance they will be joined by Dennis Young of Liquid Liquid, pioneers of thump.
