SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7TH
// THE XYZ AFFAIR //
POOR BUT SEXY
Doors 12:00pm :: Show 9:00pm :: 21+
New York’s The XYZ Affair has come a long way since lead singer Alex Feder’s high school demos that make up their roots. Originally forming out of New York University’s basketball Pep Band, the band solidified their current four person lineup Feder on vocals and guitar, Chris Bonner on bass and backup vocals, Sam Rockwell on drums and backup vocals, and Russ Maschmeyer on guitar, keyboards, and backup vocals just over two years ago, and has since been mastering the art of writing soaring arena rock colored with the duality of confident energy and boyish vulnerability.
// MODESELEKTOR AFTER-PARTY //
Doors 11:55pm :: Show 11:55pm :: 21+
Berlin techno pranksters Modeselektor might be known for reckless and rowdy beats, but they take their go-karting very seriously. Between laps, Sebastian Szary and Gernot Bronsert talk about making their new album, Happy Birthday, ghost riding the whip, and the rise of culture in post-Wall Berlin–all of which sound very important coming from two guys wearing headsocks. -XLR8R
