In a world filled with war and a society that will squabble over anything, it's good to know that there are still some fights where both sides are winners. At the Elbo Room tonight, Battle of the Suits will find local beatmakers the Polish Ambassador and Mochipet seeing who can make the most bodies move on the dancefloor.
"Battle of the Suits [promotes] that the two headliners will be donning eye-dazzling garments while performing," says David Sugalski, aka the Polish Ambassador. "This party is for people who like to shake that bottom, pump that fist, and jump around with other creatures of the night."
Deceptikon opens a night that will feature an array of sounds born from the artists' love of bass, beats, and whatever else they can get their hands on. Battle of the Suits is presented by UC Berkeley's KALX 90.7 FM as well as Bikes N Beats, a new self-explanatory promotional group that's giving San Francisco Bike Coalition members a two-dollar discount off the $12 door price. "This is our first show, and it is more an informer show for Bikes N Beats than anything," Sugalski says. "We will be setting up a promotional table with stickers, a human being to answer questions, and a newsletter signup for future events. In the future, Bikes and Beats hopes to incorporate a bike valet at bigger events."
