The legendary Moodymann returns to Knockdown Center on July 23, taking over the Ruins with his label Mahogani Music alongside Detroit icons Andrés and Rick ‘The Godson’ Wilhite.
Disco Tehran is a funky warm dance party & live performance project that connects NY to the era of 1970s discotheques in Iran. Each party explores groovy throwbacks and rare music from the Asian continent, Latin America, Africa, and Europe.
Outline: Summer will feature a headline performance by noise-rock icons Lightning Bolt. The revered Providence, RI, duo have spent two decades at the forefront of avant garde rock music, iterating on their trademark collision of technical precision and total chaos. They’ll be joined by a specially curated lineup that spans hip-hop, indie-rock, pop, electronic, and experimental music. Additional performers include: Injury Reserve, a boundary-pushing Arizona hip-hop duo, Philadelphia electro-psych trio Spirit of the Beehive, and UK techno & noise artists Giant Swan, making their New York City debut.
Fast-rising hyper-pop provocateur Alice Longyu Gao and delirious PC Music label producer umru represent the bleeding edge of futuristic pop. Unpredictable sets from the aggressive, globally attuned producer and sound selector DJ Haram (Discwoman, 700 Bliss) and local mutant rock scene linchpins, Kill Alters, round out the full Summer program.
The nite to bring the vibes of web3 to the people.
