“Voted one of Pittsburgh’s best dance parties of 2013 by Pittsburgh City Paper readers!”
We’re still reelin’ from having wrapped four successful years of TITLE TOWN, but Pittsburgh’s dance-centric soul party is turnin’ things up on November 9th with a special guest appearance from Washington D.C.’s DJ NITEKRAWLER – DJ, collector and driving force behind D.C. Soul Recordings and MONEYTOWN.
As any music fan knows, a steady diet of familiar, yet fresh sounds is the perfect recipe for a good dance party, so expect everything from obscure ‘60s & ‘70s soul, deep and classic funk, vintage rhythm & blues, Latin boogaloo, uptempo disco and anything (and everything) else that makes your Saturday night move – all at 45 revolutions per minute.
ABOUT DJ NITEKRAWLER
We gotta say, not many DJs in the game can throw down an all-45 set of downright obscure and forgotten 45s while maintaining a high level of feel-good party rocking craftsmanship. Kevin Coombe a.k.a DJ Nitekrawler has been honing his skills at H Street’s Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar for years. His MONEYTOWN party continues to be D.C.’s best outlet for a dance-friendly mix of funk, soul, boogaloo, breakbeats, Latin, and more.
The Washington Post writes, “DJ Nitekrawler has getting crowds to dance down to a science: wickedly funky drums. Deep, rubbery bass. Punching horns. Shaking tambourine. The unmistakable chicka-chicka shuffle of wah-wah guitar.” He’s not only a schooled DJ dropping mean grooves, but a catalyst behind the cataloging of records by legends and lesser-known artists of the Washington D.C. & Maryland funk, soul, & R&B era of the ’60s to the early ’90s (including all related sub-genres and descendants such as Go-Go and Disco). In 2010, DJ Nitekrawler was featured on NPR’s Morning Edition and is working on a book that delves deeper into the D.C. and Maryland music.
Don’t miss the one-two punch of DJ Nitekrawler and TITLE TOWN’s resident DJ Gordy G.
