Daedelus & Gaslamp Killer @ I AM A LASER (Thurs. Jan 14)

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 6, 2010 by worldromper

Taking place at the chi chi Club Nokia Mezzanine Bar the second Thursday of every month and coinciding with the Downtown LA Art Walk, I AM A LASER brings fresh sounds to a new crowd, uniting wandering art communities in the search for great music and a good time.

Cover is $5 all night when you RSVP to rsvp@iamalaser.com or $10 otherwise.

This month on January 14 we have two of LA’s finest beat manipulators as well as fat visuals from Dr. Strangeloop (from Brainfeeder Sessions) and Timeboy:

DAEDELUS creates soundscapes ripe with emotion, from fast dance bangers to tracks that breathe romance, always delivering a unique and inspiring set and sometimes causing the walls to drip with sweat. He makes “rich deep dance music, the past 300 years slammed into one hour.”

GASLAMP KILLER has a rep for being crazy in a city known for crazy- that’s quite the accolade. With animalistic beats, a slamming track selection and wild stage presence, you never know quite what you will get when you step onto Gaslamp’s dance floor- but his music will no doubt move your body and mind.

Also at the party:

Photography by LA Weekly’s Curious Josh and sexy live painting by John Park and Michael Pukac; I have always been quite impressed by the quality of work on display at the show.

It all goes down at Club Nokia Mezzanine Bar (enter on Figueroa across from Holiday Inn) and there are several $5 parking lots a couple of blocks down, and I even found street parking last month. Click here for more information on parking and for all the details, please visit IAMALASER.COM.

And don’t forget to RSVP at rsvp@iamalaser.com for $5 entry all night!

I AM A LASER is a post-Downtown LA Art Walk night of future culture celebration at the swank Club Nokia Mezzanine Bar that brings together wanderers, live painting and visual arts, and copious amounts of bass heavy glitch, dubstep, electro, urban hip hop, indie and gypsy. I AM A LASER is about cutting-edge exploration and expression, no matter what community you call home.

Also on the lineup: L. Croskey, and doing live painting will be Michael Pukac of Think Space Gallery  and from Cannibal Flower, John Park:

See you on the dance floor!
