On Friay, November 5th Giant Step Presents the third installment of our 2010 SVEDKA Vodka Sessions series featuring Fitz and The Tantrums plus DJ Smash at the Velvet Room at Clift in San Francisco, CA. Get ready for some hand clapping, moneymaker shaking, and unrestrained bumping as these performers take over the stage and show you why this band went from their living room to touring with Maroon 5 in just one year from its conception. As always with our SVEDKA Music Sessions, entrance is free but strictly RSVP only.
In case you haven’t heard, the Hudson Series has returned, and we moved it downstairs to the Good Units at Hudson as part of our makeover. The first installment was a huge success with over 700 people in attendance (thanks to all of you who came out!) and we are ready to do it all over again.
The second installment of the Hudson Series returns with none other than Questlove himself, with the aid of his trusted MC and special guest Yameen Allworld on Monday, October 25th. Doors open at 8pm and as always, entrance is free but strictly RSVP only.
GPWW this week features a mix by TOKiMONSTA, Los Angeles DJ and beatsmith who started out as an unfocused classical piano student. That piano training became her musical foundation as she grew to make layered productions with live and digital instrumentation, dusty old vinyl, and whatever else she could find. Signed to Flying Lotus‘ imprint, Brainfeeder, she’s fearless and energetic, having performed with Flying Lotus, Daedelus, Nosaj Thing, Gaslamp Killer, and many other of her fellow beat makers.
