As Rio Room's '83 Series comes to a close, you may have thought Thursday night would free up. Sorry, shaking your groove thing is just going to become a year-round habit, but at least you know there are international and regional tastemakers set to underscore your weekly dance party.
We have the scoop on the new cast of Rio Room characters starting with Left Right this Thursday, March 22, but peep the whole list so you can attend to your social agenda. The low-tempo remixes of Australia's Flight Facilities will whisk you away to some Palm Springs summer deck party in a French mansion. Start with the addictive "Crave You" to see what I mean. You should order something served in a flute that night and let's wear caftans.
Some locals are getting in the mix this round too. Feezy and Redsean will likely get to play a more sophisticated set for the non-weekend Rio crowd, and Redsean certainly primed those in attendance for last week's Alan Braxe appearance. I predict Tony Schwa of Dallas glory days/Cool Out fame and Cannabinoid DJ A1 will bring both a fantastic crowd and epic dance party on April 26, so just circle that date too.
The full list is below, so get to planning.
March 22 Left Right March 29 Nadastrom April 5 Feezy & Redsean April 12 Flight Facilities April 19 Blake Ward & Rule of Eight (Previously known as OKC's Computer Blue) April 26 Tony Schwa & A1 May 3 Flying Turns from Austin May 10 Shuttle
Stay tuned for some more special announcements from the Rio Room gang. It looks like The Cellar parties are winding down for now, but it seems like they may have a few more tricks up their sleeves for the spring. And you know I kiss and tell.
