POPSHOP015: FLIGHT FACILITIES + YUKSEK
After three massive showcases at SXSW last week, we've got full-blown festival fever and we just can't seem to shake it. So much like last year's CMJ blowout, April's Popshop boasts a double-decker lineup of the very best new acts from around the world. In the DJ headline slot, we have none other than the legendary sky captains of tomorrow, Flight Facilities, accompanied by the very lovely Jess Higgs on live vocals. Immediately preceding them on the live stage will be the French electro maven himself Yuksek, making his NYC headline debut with a powered up three-piece live band (preview below). And as if all that wasn't enough, we've got Israel-via-London pop outfit, Tiger Love, kicking things off early and Aussie powerhouse '96 Bulls manning the upper decks late night.
Downstairs in the Pleasure Treasure room, you'll find club maestro Mighty Mouse holding it down with our Power Slug residents Headband and Hooligan until the early morn. Oh yeah, and there's also an open Bomb Lager bar for the first hour, just to guarantee a proper night of mayhem. It's all popping off on Thursday, April 5th, at Santos Party House. Tix are $15 in advance and $20 at the door, so get yours now HERE, you don't wanna miss our biggest Popshop to date.
