January 15: LUTHER @ The U Street Music Hall
featuring DJs Mark Louque, Pee Play, Ryan Smith, Bil Todd
On January 15 (MAL weekend) at The U Street Music Hall, fire-starter DJs Mark Louque of the Provincetown party Fag Bash, Pee Play from San Francisco’s Honey Soundsystem, Ryan Smith of NYC’s Wrecked and Bil Todd of DC’s RAW join forces–supergroup-style–to become LUTHER, a sexy superhero sent up from the queer underground to rescue dancefloors worldwide from the horrors of homogeneous nightlife.
Showcasing the talents of four artists (DJ bios after the jump) who have been changing the landscape of American queer event culture and exporting it to the world, LUTHER embodies the new black market brotherhood of counter-culture DJs, performers and thrill-seekers who’ve taken back the dark disco night. Expect a pumping mix of underground disco, house, and electro played to a gleefully appreciative, often frisky and (soon to be) deeply dedicated crowd.
