DFA 12 years

DFA 12 years

by loren • June 10

I had the opportunity to attend a fun record label 12 year anniversary party. DFA Records threw a party in the lavish Grand Prospect Hall usually reserved for fancy occasions like weddings.

Many of the labels artists played over the multiple floors and various stages. Some of the better acts leading up to the climax of the evening were Planningtorock a very experimental duo from Berlin Germany. My personal favorite Prinzhorn Dance School is a great "post-punk" trio that some really tight and danceable music with a strong bass lead.

Before James Murphy of LCD sound-system (co-founder of DFA) took the DJ set deep into the night the talented solo DJ from Shit Robot lit up the stage wearing a cool illuminated green mask.
