That Knight Riders Party? It’s Next Month

posted by on December 14 at 15:10 PM

From the Department of Corrections:
In the column this week I went on and on about how great the lineup is for the next Knight Riders party. Of course, the day the issue hits stands is when I get the press release announcing that the party is moved to January 25th (at Hengst Studios). Oh well.

In any case, here’s what I said about the event (it’s all still true, but pretend I’m saying this a month from now):

The Knight Riders are back. The promoters are cutting back on their earlier Hoff-centricity while keeping the musical talent as totally awesome as a talking car. They’ve gone overboard with the lineup, booking not only five live acts, but five head-to-head DJ “battles” as well. With styles as varied as former Seattle Laptop Battle champ Squid Leader’s bangin’ techno to xBen’s hyperintelligent crunk/techno mashups (crunkno?) to Copy’s keytarded electro, there’s bound to be something for all tastes. The underground vibe of this party (the location is still TBA) might take this from merely great to epic.
