The final third of this week's Cheap Thrills (and also re-posted from Hotline), deserving of its own attention space. NYC electro duo Designer Drugs hit Ivy tonight, and despite expecting some ghostly run-ins this shit should be off the chain. They killed at the Circus anniversary party way-back-when, and plan to hit this after the Ames Hotel premiere party across town... Here's the Facebook invite page.
A DESIGN FOR CLUB LIFE
Electro dance party with Designer Drugs
Tonight from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m., Ivy Restaurant, 49 Temple Place; 21-plus, $10
Now that Boston is a city not overlooked by big-name touring electro-house DJs, most of the headlines beamed like a strobe light across the dance floor have been reserved for Deadmau5 and David Guetta’s back-to-back shows at the Roxy next week. But with those parties carrying $45 and $80 ticket prices, respectively, the thriftier and possibly hipper clubgoer gets the banger fix tonight when white-hot New York City DJ duo Designer Drugs blow the roof off Ivy in Downtown Crossing. One of the most explosive acts on the always-dynamite, Los Angeles-based IHEARTCOMIX label, Designer Drugs have been giving pulsating electro remix treatment to the likes of Annie, IAMX and Little Boots all while unleashing their own ferocious production work. Their latest jam, a remix of Femme’s “Vestige,” might carry too much firepower for Boston sound systems, but this Future Classic/Night Society party is certain to be a booze-fueled rager on the cheap. DJ Voltran and Texas Mike provide the opening beats, and visual art is blasted by Jellz.
