Expect tonight's "Diff'rent Strokes" event at Fallout Lounge to be as crowded as a fire sale at an American Apparel store.
Not that the Thursday weekly featuring
Billingham's Defense System 's half-vinyl, half-digital DJ sets aren't already hopping - 'cause they are. But, if I wasn't still broke, and was a betting man, I'd wager that tonight's turnout will set records for Fallout.
Why? Thanks to BDS's special guests this evening:
Damaged Good$ . One of the best local shows I saw last year was when the hipster-hop duo performed at Fallout with Prince William, Scuba Team Go and Click Claak . And anyone who has seen Trak Bully and Coool Dundee live know that, unlike the Granada, Fallout is the perfect venue for them. Whether performing in a jam-packed kitchen for a house party or mixed in with the mob at a bar like Fallout, the duo is at its best when embedded in an audience .

Having recently returned stateside after performing a handful of shows in Europe, I'm imagining Trak and Coool are ready to rub elbows with a home-town crowd. Sandwiched between DJ sets by BDS, I'm told DMG$ is scheduled to go on about midnight.
Oh, and, the best part of the whole deal? No cover.
Update: DMG$ has backed out of tonight's gig as Coool is recovering from a lost voice. BDS will still spin as part of its Thursday night residency.
