CLUBLAND: December 2017 – your month measured in BPMs

Tuesday 05th, December 2017 / 17:04
By Alan Ranta

Ho, ho, holy shnikeys… What a year this was, eh? Waking up every morning was like Captain Picard demanding a damage report. Check out these shows if you need a little something to get you through the final stretch.

Big Joy Festival 2017
Dec. 7 to 9 @ Multiple Venues

The experimental music festival is going out with a bang for its fifth and final year, promising a broad spectrum of harsh noise, textural fog, and transdisciplinary audio/video explorations with performances by Ian William Craig, Greg Kelley, SEEKERSINTERNATIONAL, and more. Tickets are cheap, and the vibes are as weird as you need them to be. 

Dec. 8 @ VENUE

The longtime Ninja Tune beatsmith returns to VENUE in support of his joyfully titled new album, Funeral Balloons. That said, many will probably just be going because of the video Anthony Francisco Sheppard produced for “The Music Scene,” as well they should as it is one of the most beautiful things ever made. Watch it, fall into a dream, and go.

Nora En Pure
Dec. 16 @ Celebrities Playhouse

Born in South Africa and raised in Switzerland, DJ Daniela Niederer (a.k.a. Nora En Pure) is a master of house so deep that light cannot escape it and dance so indie that it could convert a Hare Krishna to a hipster. Everyone could use a dancefloor as smooth as hers right now.

Sarah Davachi/Loscil/Nicolas Bragg

Dec. 21 @ Red Gate Revue Stage

The longest night of the year deserves to be accompanied by the most elongated and mesmerizing of musical forms. Davachi and Loscil are two of the most important ambient/drone musicians in the world, with extensive catalogues and endless imaginations, while longtime Zulu Records employee and Destroyer guitarist Nicolas Bragg is as eclectic as cuddlecore.

Mark Farina
Dec. 22 @ Imperial

The mad genius behind Mushroom Jazz can’t seem to stay away from the DJ booth. This travelling minstrel cooks up his signature blend of San Francisco-fried Chicago House and dubby, funky downtempo at over a hundred shows a year, as he has for over 25 years now. Respect the hustle, and shake that booty.
