Hello gang! Next weekend I’ll be hosting the closest thing I’ve come to a 60s weekender. I’ve got 9 DJs spinning at my monthly party SH-BOOM on Friday May 20th. They are Claire Kalvis (Intoxica, London), Rob Macy (Save Your Soul, Baltimore), Jason Thornton (Boston), Josh Styles (Rebel Rouser), One Mint Julep (Soul Night, Brooklyn), Ty Jesso (Providence / Boston), Stacy Thornton (Boston), Todd-O-Phonic Todd, and myself.
And then the next night, Saturday May 21st Todd-O-Phonic Todd and I have put together an 8-hour party called Youth Beware! at Berlin (Under 2A) in NYC, with live bands Jacques Le Coque, Crazy and the Brain, and the Von Mons, followed by a rock n’ soul dance party with DJs Rob Macy (Save Your Soul, Baltimore), Jason Thornton (Boston), Ty Jesso (Providence / Boston), Stacy Thornton (Boston), Todd-O-Phonic Todd, and myself.

I hope you’ll join us for a weekend of records, bands, booze, and zero sleep!
Last Friday, Brooklyn-based duo Beverly was the first band ever to play live on my WFMU show, Sophisticated Boom Boom. I am completely in love with their new album, The Blue Swell (out on Kanine Records), which is full of dreamy-pop singles like “Crooked Cop,” “Victoria” and “South Collins.” Beverly’s singer, guitarist, and songwriter Drew Citron was SO excited to be at WFMU—she said it was a real dream come true because she’s been a longtime fan of Shut Up Weirdo with Frangry + Michele.
