!!! (DJ Set)

8:30 p.m. Sunday, August 28. The Firebird, 2706 Olive Street.


We'll be honest: We weren't really cognizant of dance music prior to our 21st birthday, so we can't say for certain if the indie celebrity DJ set is a new, Ableton-induced phenomenon or just a terribly tired gimmick. However, we can say without hesitation that Allan Wilson of !!! will get your ass shaking like no man has before. His soulful, trunk-moving cabin-fever mix blends crunky funk, classic house and disco bounce — it's like a heaping pile of MDMA without the brain damage.

Fair Warning: Wallflowers and "but I work tomorrow!" whiners will be suffer the consequences: death by Voguing en masse.
