Say yer on the lookout for thumpity-type beats to move yer feets, and you want them pumped out by a badass lady DJ? Look no further, ’cause Night Fever is back and this time it’s an all ladies edition! The pimpest party in town is having its 26th (dang!) edition on June 22 at The Volstead, and it’s gonna get wild up in that shit.
This extra-special ladies only lineup is appropriately called Hey Ladies! and features four ultra-skilled women and no limits on the style. This show is meant to be a tribute to the late MCA of the Beastie Boys (RIP) as well as every lady DJ in the world. All four of the acts are local Austin musicians, and as they say, “All styles, all smiles.” They’ve got KOOP radio’s “Hip Hop Hooray” show hosts Miss Manners and DJ T-Kay throwin’ down on the ones and twos. They’ve got Shuffle Shuffles’ marvelous DeeJay Honeycomb in the mix. They’ve even got the internationally known DJ Shani, from Chicago’s famous “Groove Temple” radio show jumpin’ in and blasting out what’s sure to be a groove to remember. Damn!
From what we can tell, these girls are gonna be all over the map when it comes to kickin’ beats and audio treats. They say they’re planning on playing “Hip Hop, Funk, Boogie, Electro, Soul, Disco, Breaks, Latin and House selections,” so pretty much everything you want and more. Whatever they’re dropping, this is one skilled set of performers, so you know it’ll be one hell of a party. Show up early at The Volstead for this one, as they expect the limited space to fill up quick.
The Volstead’s located at 1500 East 6th Street and welcomes all dancers and prancers 21 years old and up. The shindig kicks off at 9 p.m. and is set to go ’til 2 in the morning, and is free to the public. Visit the event post on Facebook here.
