Gang Gang Dance @ Dingwalls, June 1st 2009.

Gang Gang Dance seem to be attracted to infernos. In February all of their equipment burned to the ground along with the Amsterdam venue they had played the previous evening. Tonight in a packed Dingwalls the temperature must be somewhere close to that blaze. Continue reading

What? Gang Gang Dance

I’m very excited about this one! This is rescheduled from their original February date which they had to pull out of after all of their expensive gear caught fire while left in an Amsterdam venue over night. Tough luck but they’re back to hypnotise us with their pulsating middle eastern rhythms, dub, grime, off kilter dance beats and whatever else they fancy. Their album St. Dymphna was one of the best of 2008. Oh and they’re from Brooklyn and they count TV On The Radio, Hot Chip and Klaxons amongst their fans in case you weren’t sure of their credentials! They are pretty full on though so listen before you buy!

For Fans Of: UNKLE, TV On The Radio, Fuck Buttons, Telepathe.

When? Monday, June 1st.

Where? Dingwalls, Camden.

How Much? £11.50

Gang Gang Dance Tour Cancelled Due To Fire

fire

Feb 26th 09, Gang Gang Dance, Dingwalls. Cancelled

Damn damn damn! Gang Gang Dance played in Amsterdam on Friday and stored their equipment in the venue overnight. An electrical fire broke out and completely wrecked their not insubstantial amount of equipment including a lot of the memory cards for their samplers. The band have cancelled the rest of their UK/European tour and have said:

‘While we did entertain the thought of just renting or borrowing a bunch of random gear and somehow continuing the tour and just improvising every night, it just doesn’t seem like its going to work out. While it would be fun and we’d love to stick this out for everyone that was excited to see us, we feel like we came to perform a certain set of songs and if we cant do that then its probably best to just come back again when we have the necessary gear to do so.’

Sucks for them, sucks for us. If you’re not familiar with them yet then this at least gives you a chance to catch up in time to see them on their next tour I guess. Their album St Dymphna was in my top 15 for 2008, it’s psychedelic tribal dance jams are to die for. If you don’t believe me then check out the track below.

What? Gang Gang Dance

They hail from New York but not Brooklyn which makes a change. Weird beats and psychedelic tribal dance tunes. Latest offering Saint Dymphna was one of my albums of the year in 2008 and personally I can’t wait to hear it performed live but recommend getting some background knowledge yourself before buying tickets as this isn’t for everyone.

When? Thursday Feb 26th.

Where? Dingwalls, Camden.

How Much? £11
