Pretty fucking stoked about the pill tonight, as Bodega Girls swing by to bring their lo-fi hedonistic dance party throwdown to Great Scott. Adding to my excitement is the new pill mailing list, which takes us out of the Commodore 64 era and into the now (kinda). Sign up by submitting your email on the pill website. These are the golden days... the bio for tonight:
Thirty years ago this Sunday, Chicago’s Comiskey Park hosted the infamous Disco Demolition Night, where White Sox fans brought old disco records to the ballpark to be blown up between games of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers. The rock radio-sponsored promo stunt quickly escalated into chaos – bonfires broke out, unruly fans stormed the field and a near-riot ensued within the park, forcing the Sox to postpone and eventually forfeit the second game. Rolling Stone magazine called it the “emblematic moment” of the anti-disco “crusade” and organizers proudly boasted the Derby “hastened (disco’s) demise.” Thirty years later, in a time where disco has revived through myriad sounds and attitudes, Bodega Girls bring their all-out hedonistic dance party assault to the pill. Haven shaken up the interwebs with their seductive hit “She’s Into Black Guys” and crashed sweaty dance floors with their insane Wild Light remix, Bodega Girls flee their usual monthly dance party home base of Middlesex Lounge and get dirty with us in Allston Village. An ode to ‘70s disco with modern elements of funk, soul and electro, Bodega Girls' on-stage demolition derby will bring Great Scott to its knees.
Shake yourself a preview of Bodega Girls over at myspace.com/bodegagirls, practice your moves in the mirror and read up on the Hector Fund, the band’s artist-funding campaign. Before and after the band, the pill’s resident DJs Ken & Michael V spin the best in Britpop, Modern Indie & Beyond. Look sharp.
