If you wanted to hear cutting-edge electronic music in the ‘80s, you had to hit up a rave, the underground parties where DJs would spin and bands would sometimes play too. Party Sweat (local DJ Dave P. who hosts club nights around town at various venues) will throw a New Wave Rave
with the help of fellow DJs D-Rock and Himiko GO-GO at 9 p.m. on Friday, July 17, at Mahall’s. The synth pop duo Home Body will perform. They reportedly have “pretty sweet video projections.” Looped video courtesy of local artist Kory Gasser is also on the docket and WOBC DJ Junky B will spin.
“Per usual, we're pumped to be blastin some new harder-to-find dance floor dynamite ranging from New Wave, No-Wave, Post-Punk, Italo Disco, Geighties P0P, HI-NRG, Synth POP, early Techno and Minimal Electronic Muzak,” says Dave P. “Plus a few HITZ! This is our 15th New Wave Rave party and we'll also have some fun video eye candy to share.”
