DETAILS: Time to break out the Elvis suit, fasten the false eyelashes, and rub the dust off the Technicolor fur suit cause the bar is about to be raised for Vegas debauchery. Taking sin city by sizzle, it's "Super Disco Disco Bacon" a four-night, "no sleep till breakfast" throwdown organized by Bonnaroo veteran gunslinger Motion Potion and Vegas after-hours assassin Botown. Featuring an array of West Coast underground heroes playing eclectic, heady, progressive dance music, the four night meltdown provides a final weekend meal for party professionals. Costume attire is recommended but not required, just dancing shoes and a thirst for good times. The party will take place at the recently remodeled Rouge club at the MGM Grand and runs 3-8am latenight Friday, Saturday and Sunday. On Monday the music starts at Midnight immediately following the Widespread Panic/Meters show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
THE BEATCONDUCTORS:BASSNECTAR (AKA DJ Lorin): Lorin Ashton has earned a massive underground following through a constant stream of groundbreaking releases and constant nationwide touring. The Vegas appearance comes on the heals of headline sets at Shambhala, Symbiosis, All Hallows Eve, and SF Decompression and recent collaborations with String Cheese Incident’s Michael Kang.
MOTION POTION: Called "the DJ for people who hate DJs" MoPo has spent 10 years blurring the lines of genre, audience and expectations. A true eclecticist, MoPo mixes breaks, funk, hip-hop, rock, Latin, ragga and more into a coherent conscious flow. MoPo has played Xingolati, Bonnaroo, Gathering of the Vibes, High Sierra, has opened for Maceo Parker, Widespread Panic, Femi Kuti and Govt Mule and has played live with the Parliament Funkadelic, the Mutaytor, Galactic, and Rebirth Brass Band. MoPo will host the event and spin throughout the run.
BLVD: San Francisco's favorite live electronica trio is busting out of the Bay. Drummer Dylan McIntosh, bassist Tripp Baines, and guitarist Curtis Sloan, BLVD crafts heady dance music to move the feet and the mind. Oft-compared to Toronto's New Deal, BLVD brings a San Francisco psychedelic sensibility seldom seen on the club scene.
BUCK A.E. DOWN: One half of the production team that produces LA's tribal electronic super-group the Mutaytor, Buck A.E. Down has seen 2006 welcoming him into high-profile territory. Despite the Mutaytor's hectic touring schedule and album production, Buck has found the time to share the stage with Baaba Maal and Angelique Kidjo and produce music for Mickey Hart. Buck will perform on Saturday night solo and accompanied by MoPo in a "DubsciPo" set.
DJ MANCUB: Friday headliner DJ Mancub of the Space Cowboys crew is one of San Francisco's best-loved Dj's, recently making the city's prestigious Nitevibe "Dreamteam Top 10 List" for his flawless blend of tech breaks and truntablism. He recently returned from a month in England following up his monster mixtape Shark Shart.
DJ WOLFIE: Wolfie has been a staple in the LA Underground for so long that it's easy to believe he may have given birth to it, an assertion that wouldn't be too far from the truth. DJ Wolfie has done more to foster progressive music in Los Angeles than most two people put together; using his "HipGenesis" parties as a vehicle to boost the careers of many an LA hero including the Pocket DJs, Porter Tinsley, the Mutaytor, and NinjaSkills crew. What often gets overlooked is Wolfie's ability to throw down scorching sets of rock-infused breakbeat music, a skill he will show off latenight after Panic on Halloween morning.
