The Works First Birthday Bash

The Works is one year old on September 24th. Yesh folks, on September 24th 2010 we opened our doors for the first time, cranked up the phonograph and let the tunes rip on the Funktion One. The following night Mary Anne Hobbes and Mount Kimbie came by for some cutting edge UK bass action (more of which will be coming to us on October 1st courtesy of Icee Hot btw).

Anyways, back to the subject at hand, yes our first birthday or anniversary to be more accurate. We’ve got an all local line-up that includes funkmaster in effect, Gordo, capable 313 advocate, Rich Korach, the ever-charming Deejay Kramer, the ever-rocking Afrolicous, the ever Whitchy Marco De (Viva) Las Vegas and the ever-cutting edge Shawn Reynaldo (whose Cumbia and all latin-inflected set a few weeks ago was truly impressive). And there’s more than that, but in the interests of space I will keep you all in suspense regarding who else is on the bill. Both floors will be open, i.e. the main floor and Oddjob (the wee upstairs room that so many folks seem to love).

The feshtivities kick off at 9PM and will go on til 4AM, which is the official time that the wheels usually fall off or some folks usually fall over, or at least stumble or stagger, and it should be a staggering night to say the least. So come one, come all and help us celebrate our oneness on the floor at the Works.
