Go See Muscles/Blaqstarr at Sonar Tonight

Nerdy excited for this.

Two weeks ago we were lukewarm on Muscles but gave Ice Cream another chance because the song definitely had promise, people were raving about him, and because he's from Melbourne and part of the hotshit Modular label that brings us the likes of Cut Copy, New Young Pony Club, Digitalism, need we continue. What does Muscles sound like? Val Kilmer says it best in Real Genius - "It is possible to synthesize excited bromide in an argon matrix."

So two weeks later Muscles is on repeat, he's touring for a bit before supporting DAFT. PUNK. later in the year, and it's time to unleash the pristine pearl white Members Only jacket for a mutherflippin' Halloween cameo at Sonar. Hope you can join. Hot damn.

Muscles - Ice Cream (woooo)
Stay textually active with Muscles on MySpace.

Local club hero Blaqstarr will be sharing the tables. Homey just got signed to Diplo's Mad Decent label (along with our favorite baile funk bangers Bonde Do Role) and produced a few tracks on M.I.A.'s future-album-of-2007-winner Kala.

Blaqstarr - Hands Up Thumbs Down

Plus all the Tax Lo DJs - Simon Phoenix, Cullen Stalin, Dave Nada (T&A Records/Bullets), Chris O (Yo Majesty) - will be playing the best Halloween and party songs they have with them at the time!

Cullen says wear a fucking costume.

I wish that I could keep him in my pocket so I can play with him all the time. Seriously.

Not only was the show amazing - dance party extreme - but Muscles is pretty damn hot, which makes it even more fun! He definitely knows how to make a crowd go crazy and all of the Halloween costumes definitely added to the mix.

I dont really remember Blaqstarr, but considering I was on stage, I'm sure it was a blast.
