MEN (USA) + STEREOGAMOUS + HOLY BALM + DJ GEMMA
Fri Mar 2 2012
MEN is a Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective led by LE TIGRE'S JD Samson, cult icon and leader in the LGBTQ community. MEN focus on the energy of live performance and radical potential of dance music. Their music speaks of issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise, and the demand for liberties through lyrical content and an inventive, high-energy stage show.
The group began in 2007 with the DJ/production/remix team of LE TIGRE members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. With LE TIGRE on hiatus, when the duo began to write new songs, it made sense to merge their efforts with JD's other project HIRSUTE (Michael O'Neill, JD Samson, Emily Roysdon and Ginger Brooks Takahashi).
JD and Michael now comprise the core of MEN, with Johanna Fateman and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants, and producers. The band enjoys changing the shape of the project and collaborating every tour with new instrumentalists and visual elements. Last tour they were joined by Tami Hart of the band Making Friendz and this fall will be joined by percussionist Lee Free.
Selling out the physical copies of their debut self-released EP "MEN", they released their debut album "Talk About Body" via IAMSOUND in 2011. The band have toured extensively all over the world, played Coachella 2011, have supported both Peaches and Gosip, a European/UK run and a headlining West Coast US tour, as well as a recent US tour in support of CSS.
STEREOGAMOUS is the remix project of Seymour Butz (Club Kooky) and Paul Mac (Itchy-E and Scratch-E. Checkout the remix they did for MEN's 'Credit Card Babies' here.
HOLY BALM are a three piece psychadelic dance band from Sydney. Lets join them on the dance floor.
DJ GEMMA is one of the most inpirational peeps around, who has been providing us underground lovers with the best beats at clubs such as Club Kooky, Ya Leil, Club Arak to name a few.
