The current surge of early-reggae and R&B club nights in town shows that the '60s are finally back in an authentic, non-Boomer-centric way.

DJs Phengren, Paul Paul, and Pink Panzer throw down a relentless mix of obscure, stomping vocal 45s released by the hundreds of wannabe Motown and Stax labels that littered the landscape way back when. Don't let the sharp-cut suits in the crowd streaming through the door fool you — this crew comes to sweat.

The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
