Win Tickets to Dance Right with Holy Ghost!, Classixx, PUNCHES and Jessica 6 at 88 Palace!

This has shaped up to be one of the funkiest, most disco-danced out bills the early moments of the summer has seen thus far. With a trio of NYC troupes anchored by the skills of an LA comrade, Manhattan's stealth lil' spot in Chinatown is ready to get crazy when Dance Right takes over for a night of sweaty sexy fun-times.

The legendary LA party, Dance Right, is back! Last month, the kids of MeanRed brought their Cali flavor to NYC and got sweaty with A-Trak and Shepard Fairey (check out some pics here). On Saturday, June 12, they’re doing it again with Holy Ghost!, Classixx, PUNCHES and Jessica 6

 

The last party sold out, so make sure you get advanced tickets...or enter to win a pair of 'em for you and a beastly buddy!

Gwen Stefani remarks that the new No Doubt album, due out later this year, is influenced by the "worst of the 80s", particularly one-hit wonders. This is intriguing, but more importantly, well anticipated, as it's been 9 years since they've put out an original album. More details here.


Last night, Salt-n-Pepa played a sold out show at Sydney's Enmore theater, which by all accounts, looked to be super rad. Watch a video of the chicness here.


Barbara, a three-piece electro-pop folk outfit from Los Angeles, covered Kid CuDi's Pursuit of Happiness, and yep, it's just as great as y ou think it could be. Listen close for an Iron and Wine sample, with extra hums from Sam Cooke. Beaston approved and yours for free below!

 

Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings announce a second NYC on their tour at the legendary Apollo Theater. Tickets for the May 1 show will be available here.

 

Groove Armada are playing Webster Hall on March 24, in support of their new album, Black Light, which sees a release next Tuesday. Tickets can be obtained here, and there's a free remix of their most rad track, Paper Romance, below.
