TITLE TOWN returns Saturday, July 31 w/ guest KEVIN COOMBE (DC)
Back once again, it’s Pittsburgh’s premier Saturday Night Dance Party: 5+ hours of rare SOUL, super heavy FUNK, and vintage RHYTHM & BLUES – all killer no filler, original 45rpm vinyl played SUPER LOUD and SUPER BAD – all within the comfy “air conditioned” confines of East Liberty’s SHADOW LOUNGE.
We’ve got those fine-tuned grooves of the highest order; lost soul 45s from Pittsburgh, Pa., the Windy City and the Motor City – all frantically mixed up in an adulterated cocktail of wildly paced rhythms and funky beats.
This is a party for those that like their music deep.
KEVIN “DJ NITEKRAWLER” COOMBE
It’s summer in the city and it’s a perfect time to welcome back Washington DC’s Kevin Coombe aka DJ Nitekrawler. Recently featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, Kevin hosts the successful MONEYTOWN funk and soul party and is the founder of DC Soul Recordings. He’s not only a schooled DJ, but a catalyst behind the cataloging of records by legends and lesser-known artists of the DC soul era.
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.”
If you missed Nitekrawler’s explosive set last year, never fear; you’ve got another chance. Now go dance!
