TITLE TOWN returns July 30th. Spread the word.

Slight change of plans. The Shadow Lounge Outdoor Sound Series has been cancelled.

So here’s what’s up:

It’s actually quite simple - TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party will go down as usual on Saturday, July 30th at the Shadow Lounge. We’ll kick things off at 9pm with our usual mix of soul, funk and R&B 45s - all vinyl - all for the dance floor. Still $5 at the door ($8 if you're 18+) and the music don't stop til' 2AM.

TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party is that monthly moment of musical goodness that makes you wanna move - cool, funky, soul, with unstoppable momentum, played at a maximum volume for your dancing pleasure.

Expect even more rare grooves, early-to-mid 70's funk, shake-yr-hips R&B, disco-funk, boogie... plus new cuts from artists like THE ARTISTICS, ACE SPECTRUM, ROY AYERS, JOE BATAAN, FAMILY OF EVE, BOBBY BLAND and never-before-played cuts from Daptone's CHARLES BRADLEY and SHARON JONES & THE DAP-KINGS!

As always, your hosts J. Malls and Gordy sift through attics and basements and hit the ol’ ones and twos with obscure classics with that Motown sound, funk from Memphis, Philly and Chicago soul - mixed together, hands-on-vinyl-style, for your dancing feet.

Spread the word. It’s gonna be a wild party.

And the livin’ is easy…Title Town is back on June 25th

Title Town Soul & Funk Party - June 25th at Shadow Lounge TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party SATURDAY, June 25th Shadow Lounge 5972 Baum Blvd. (E. Liberty) 9 PM-2 AM, Door Price: $5.00 (21+) $8.00 (18+) Pittsburgh’s freshest dance monthly gets back in action this month to kick off summer 2011. Saturday, June 25th and every last Saturday of the month, Title Town DJs J. Malls and Gordy showcase the grooves that make you move - a 5-hour slice of the good stuff, created in Philadelphia, Detroit, and Memphis during the '60s and '70s, and played at maximum volume in the comfortably cool confines of East Liberty's Shadow Lounge and Blue Room. This is a soul party. With a few recent deep digging excursions to Ohio, Detroit, D.C. and New York, we've unearthed a mess of obscure SOUL classics, deep FUNK cuts, hot LATIN soul and a bunch more. This month check out new sounds you probably haven't heard before, fresh out the box 45s from JOE BATAAN, MAJOR LANCE, LOLEATTA HOLLOWAY, ANN PEEBLES, and so much more, more, more... It will officially be summer, we're giving away some t-shirts and prizes, projecting throwback films on the wall and TURNIN' IT UP so you can get down. At 9pm sharp, expect a few laid-back tunes that wouldn't feel out of place on a breezy summer evening and then we'll open it up to the tightly wound, high-energy and HIGHLY DANCEABLE selections of decades past. Blaring horns and tight rhythms, it's a collision of the drummer's beats, hooks and pure dance-floor energy that takes you back to a future that is never forgotten. Do your ears a favor and don't miss this party. Early arrival is recommended.
