UK born DJ SS (short for Stratchenstein) went from a teenage break dancer to breaking out sick drum and bass beats in the 80s. He also DJed at early 90s British raves, so he knows what’s up.

In the mood for a throwback and/or something to get you through the Tuesday afternoon slump? Chill out and get hyped up at the same time by listening one of his mixes from 1995. 

Win tix to catch him this Thursday (8/28) at the Highline Ballroom.

 London-based indie-pop duo THUMPERS have been cranking out high-energy tracks for the last two years leading up to their 2014 debut, Galore. Loaded with synthy harmonies and drum beats that will make you, ahem, thump your feet along all the way through, Galore is slightly reminiscent of the sounds of Friendly Fires or St. Lucia.

 THUMPERS are hanging around the US for a bit, currently on tour in support of their 2014 release. They’ll be at the intimate Rough Trade in Brooklyn this Thursday with Sun Club and Little Racer, and we’re giving away ticketsEnter and win, kids!

 ”Fucked Up are a punk band. They were a punk band when they started in Toronto more than a decade ago, and they’ve remained a punk band even as they’ve ascended to career heights that their younger selves never could’ve imagined.” - Matador Records 

 ”Don’t let the name, or the sound, or the appearance of the band fool you. Fucked Up is about embracing life, about unity, and about smiles more than it is about some of the dark content its songs contain.” - Consequence of Sound

 Fucked Up are a hardcore punk band from Toronto. They won the Polaris Music Prize (Canada’s highest merit-based award for a recorded album) in 2009 and almost won it again in 2012. Their highly cathartic live shows have been praised for being no-holds-barred celebrations of moshing, screaming and celebrating life. They’re a live band you can count on - and we’re always stoked when they roll through our town.

 Win free tickets to see Fucked Up on Saturday, September 6th with Speedy Ortiz and Give.
