DISTORTIONS PRESENTS VOLTAGE CONTROL: OLD, WONKY ELECTRONIC MUSIC ALERT
Okay, this is sort of awkward. I'm Veins, half of the DJ team—with the super-knowledgeable Explorateur (Valerie Calano)—that's putting on this night, which is called Distortions, a new monthly outlet at Vermillion for whatever we feel like spinning. But forget about me and focus on the other folks on the decks. Remember the great monthly at the Living Room (RIP) known as Voltage Control? Run by the Naturebot (Ian Scot Price) and Electrosect (Patrick Haenelt), Voltage Control focused on electronic music made before 1983, the year techno and house started to dominate clubs. Therefore, the tunes Haenelt and Price spun veered toward the weird, quirky, and non-grid-like end of the EM spectrum. Subbing for Price tonight is Panabrite (Norm Chambers), who'll be bringing some of his vast stash of rare masterpieces. Expect to hear deep cuts by Vangelis, Bernard Parmegiani, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Mort Garson, and many more synth wizards. Vermillion, 9 pm, free, 21+.
