Gig of the Week

Dance Party: Benolkin, Discoma, Shayps, Terminal Bros., Dec. 25, Neurolux

by

On December 25 (Xmas, Christmas, Sunday, whatever you call it) most of us will be busy doing something. Opening presents, going to church, avoiding going to church, cooking a big meal, eating a big meal, something. Once all the holiday festivities wind down, however, you may not. If you want to continue the fun, hit the Neurolux for a post-Festivus night of half live electronica, half DJ and all dance, dance, dance music.

If you read this section regularly, you already know how I feel about Pat Benolkin's music. He's a shining star in our music scene and his mix of sounds cover a wide spectrum. He plays what I've decided to define as eclectronica--a unique combination of downtempo, electronica and experimental--and his use of sounds keeps his music fresh and thought-provoking. Discoma has been in the biz for a long time and has gained the respect of his peers. Shayps plays experimental sounds that run the gamut from jubilant to melancholy. Terminal Bros. is composed of Benolkin and Shayps and they will spinning their signature hip-hoppy, trip-hoppy, danceble sounds.

Discoma, Benolkin, Shayps and the Terminal Bros. will play music to get your heart thumping and your feet moving and will also spin tunes that you can quietly groove to.

So, forget the worst of the holidays and celebrate the best by going to the Neurolux. Order a cocktail, sit back and enjoy the sounds.

Sunday, December 25, 10 p.m., $3, Neurolux, 111 N. 11th, 343-0886
