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.
