Tropical Goth presents: Publicist, Shredder

So usually we’re not much for DJs, but we break our own rules when they’re actually getting those knobs turnt. And we extra break our rules when we think something super rad is gonna be popping at Elvis Guest House. There’s a dance party going down presented by Tropical Goth, which means it’s gonna get freakin’ sweaty in there, guys. Thankfully the place resembles a giant bath tub, so we don’t think anyone will much mind.
Ultimate Goth Guide proto-pioneered “tropical goth” way back in 2011, but it wouldn’t be until years later that Brooklyn caught up with the blogosphere. A couple of Bossa Nova’s live-in DJs branched out to start their own series, Tropical Goth, that so far has thrown some nasty parties (see: one last month at TBA). They’ve certainly proven they can fill up large venues, but can they keep the festivities quality in a small-quantity space? We’re gonna go with probz. See: Publicist, bringer of minimalist house, dark techno vibes and Shredder, which reigns over the night with their caught-in-the-machine, straight up Satanic disco nightmares. Bring your riding crop, this one’s gonna get buck.
