TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party
Saturday, February 3rd
Spirit Lodge (Downstairs)
242 51st St., Pittsburgh, PA
9pm – 2am; 21+ w/ ID, $10 (PRESALE TICKETS)

TITLE TOWN is back on Saturday, February 3rd with your monthly dance floor fix of funk. Show up early and stay late for a night of soulful grooves, gritty funk, disco bangers, vintage R&B, and more. We take you to Motown, Chicago, and Memphis, down to New Orleans, and to the west coast for the funkiest, feel-good party in the city. All killer, zero filler, all vinyl. Let’s make it jump.

Often imitated, but never duplicated, TITLE TOWN kicked off in 2009 and has been shaking up Pittsburgh’s dance floors ever since. Funky grooves, up-tempo beats, and a blast of energy from decades past, TITLE TOWN spins hand-picked 45s from regional scenes across the country – including many recorded right here in the Burgh.

Always 100% amped-up, loud, and ready for those who want to sweat it out and kick it ‘till 2AM, the vibes here are always right, all night long. From dance music disciples, to vinyl heads, to party people who just wanna get loose – this is your night.

Our last party of the year…

9pm – 2am; 21+ w/ ID, $5 before 10pm; $8 after 10pm

Join us on Saturday, December 7th as we close out 2019 with our LAST PARTY of the year! Bring a friend and shake off the mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie with FIVE HOURS of the best soul and funk 45s ever.

You know the drill – Motown and Stax, disco and boogie, Latin boogaloo, Northern Soul, vintage R&B, and of course a few not-so-silent holiday chestnuts to help you get your jollies on. The party is inclusive, infectiously feel-good, and totally fresh.

TITLE TOWN kicked off in 2009 and has been holding it down for over ten years at venues throughout the city. Up-tempo beats, funky grooves, and a blast of energy from decades past, TITLE TOWN spins hand-picked rarities from regional scenes around the country – including 45s from right here in the Burgh. These anthems – cathartic classics to the rarest of the rare – will make you move.

It was a very good year. Let’s turn it up.

RSVP on Facebook and tell us you’re comin’…

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.

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.
