Shows to Love: As You Like It Presents | Ghostly Meets Spectral
SAN FRANCISCO TONIGHT: There are shows that are not to be missed, and then there are shows that you can be certain are never EVER going to happen again. Tonight, our friends with As You Like It are bringing out one of THOSE kinds of lineups, with a full room of Ghostly International and Spectral Sound artists for your dome. Featuring Ryan Crosson (Spectral/ Visionquest), (the almost NEVER seen) Osborne (Ghostly/ Spectral), and Solvent (Ghostly), all of which adds up to—well, it’s just all a bit too exciting to put into words, really.
And yes, though this is very last minute, discounted presale tickets are STILL available here (until 6pm PST), and more will be available at the door.
Still need convincing? Plug in to the sets below, and prepare for awesome. See you at Public Works!
Ryan Crosson is one of the four gents who make up powerhouse collaboration Visionquest, and as far as fast-rising artists are concerned, this one comes with a bullet.
Osborne is Todd Osborn is Soundmurderer is Superstructure is one half of TNT … and the list goes on, really. For more on him and his varied career, check out this interview he did with the Red Bull Music Academy here. Also, check out his mix for the XLR8R Podcast here.
Solvent has been making beautiful, “genre-defying” electronic music for a decade and a half, and his most recent album, Subject to Shift was released in 2010 on Ghostly International. You can also find his releases on Morr Music as well as his own label, Suction Records.
Events to Love: As You Like It & Public Works Present - Quality
As San Francisco slowly inches its way onto the global radar, talents the world over are beginning to make their trek to the City by the Bay, to see what all the fuss is about. The result? Events with lineups so jealousy-inducing even Berliners might very well be biting their fists at this one, happening this coming Friday, May 20. The folks with As You Like It are teaming up with Public Works for Quality, featuring Scuba vs. SCB (Hotflush), Martyn (3024), and Deniz Kurtel (Crosstown Rebels). If you’ve been following this blog for any amount of time, you know that’s plenty enough to scream about, with little introduction. However, in case you’re new, here’s a bit of listening homework.
In other words, we cannot recommend this event enough, and really:
See you on the dance floor.
