And in other, non–S.T.D. bookings, word on the streets is that dirty south / true-trap-not-appropriated-trap producer Lex Luger, who makes beats for Juicy J, Waka Flocka Flame, and Gucci Mane will perform here in September. Also, DFA disco duo Holy Ghost will return on August 5 at Le Baron. Anyone remember that Vitamin Water party they played like five years ago?
URVC is turning one in August, and to celebrate they've got a really solid booking. This guy Pomo from Vancouver makes some of that really class "future funk" / hip hop / soul hybrid shiz a la Kaytranada. Been jamming his trax for months now. That show happens on Aug 7.
For festival news, Split-Works' Black Rabbit festival is now called Echo Park. It's definitely going down on September 19–20, but details are scarce. Stay tuned. And there's a new festival called Infinity Summer happening on August 8. Details for that one….also mei you, but they're working with some reliable promoters so it could be aight.
There's a ton of shit-hot bookings on in July as well, including Tokimonsta, DJ Paypal, Young Peach, DJ Krush, and more. Check The Agenda for all that and more.
