1. Holy Ghost live band is back!
The breezy disco vibes of headliner Holy Ghost! are reason numero uno you shouldn’t miss this funky treat of a live show. Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel have been making feet move since the release of their first single, “Hold On” back in 2007. Praised by Resident Advisor as “one of the dirtiest little Italo tunes you’re likely to hear this year,” the duo’s momentum has only risen with a string of original releases and high-profile remixes, including one for DFA labelmate LCD Soundsystem. Sporting a six-man live show, Holy Ghost! breathe life into a machine-dominated genre and groove the way only music affected with a tinge of human error can.
2. Midnight Magic will be headlining a venue near you soon.
Fellow Brooklyn natives Midnight Magic keep the disco vibes going hard and strong. Like Holy Ghost!, Midnight Magic found a rocket to success when their first single “Beam Me Up” showed up on Tim Sweeney‘s Beats in Space ‘Best of 2009’ release. The song’s uplifting piano riff and cathartic vocal landed the group on the aptly titled Permanent Vacation label — home base for all things summer. Operating as a 9-person live ensemble with horns abound, Midnight Magic serve up a heaping platter of funk/disco/electro-soul that keeps crowds grooving well into the night.
