Join us for a night of overindulgence and debauchery when TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party returns to the Brillobox on Saturday, February 9th!
Now every second Saturday, TITLE TOWN spins seven-inch singles from the best periods of American music – and it’s one of only a few parties of its kind in Pittsburgh. It’s dance floor bliss from the ’50s onward, taking in ‘60s soul, classic Rhythm & Blues, Motown, Funk, Mod Jazz, Latin Boogaloo – and everything in between.
This month, we’re pleased to welcome DJ BABY ALCATRAZ for her first guest spot at TITLE TOWN. From Washington, D.C., Baby Alcatraz is best known for events like SMASHING TIME, a rock n’ soul shindig held monthly at the Velvet Lounge on U Street, where she spins alongside D.C.-based veterans Kid Congo Powers and Ian Svenonius. She’s also a regular contributor at Save Your Soul, Baltimore’s wildest all-vinyl soul get down. Expect a wild, uptempo mix of soul 45s, vintage R&B, girl group sounds, frenzied freakbeat and more when BABY ALCATRAZ hits the decks!
You can count on Big Easy-style revelry most months at TITLE TOWN, but this month we’re turning it up a notch. We’ll take you back to old N’awlins and give your feet a proper workout with our late-night all New Orleans mini-set mixed with other NOLA artists throughout the night. Think Eddie Bo, The Meters, Ernie K. Doe, and Prof. Longhair. Jingle to the funky beat of Mary Jane Hooper and ride the pony with Lee Dorsey. Like Detroit, New Orleans is not a city of resurrection, but a hard-fought rebirth of music, culture and soul. We’ll get your voodoo workin’ just fine.
It all goes down at the Brillobox, Pittsburgh’s favorite neighborhood club, offering a full food menu, stiff drinks and a commitment to providing the community with high quality music and art events.
Get into it. You will enjoy yourself.
Early arrival is recommended. We fill up fast.
