Don’t sleep on this one kiddies! Moby is closing out Season 2 of the One Step Beyond parties. Its sure to be rockin’ and if you are in NYC and haven’t been to this event yet, you are officially slipping! Also playing is Holy Ghost! of DFA records (same label as LCD Soundsystem for those not in the know), as well as Martin Moscrop and Activaire DJs.
There’s a zillion DJs out there and a lot of great live electronic acts, but in my book Moby is one of the best. He is this tiny bald vegan man who runs frantically all over the stage banging on instruments left and right and conducting a huge caste of performers simultaneously. Its pretty phenomenal. The string section during the Area One tour was particularly bonkers, on some other worldly cirque du soleil tip. This show may be a DJ set, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some crazy live stuff.
Moby also has a new album coming out on June 30, called Wait for Me. He has a lovely blog entry about it here.
So put on your dancing pants and cop your ticket here.
