Need a party remedy for the grey skies overhead? Disco + house music night PETROL celebrates its third anniversary tonight at Middlesex Lounge, enlisting New York crew Death From Above to keep the beat moving. DFA A&R guy and established DJ Justin Miller and the Juan Maclean crash Cambridge to help blow out the boogie candles, and resident DJs James Gerard, Greg Teves, and William John add some familiar flavor to the booth.
We had this listed as an Editor's Pick in this week's paper, but we couldn't pass up an opp to post the excellent flyer, designed by Alfredo Rico-Dimas. OTD also hooked up with Petrol curator GABI AGUILAR for some added details on the birthday bash and the night in general. Props all around for the anniversary -- three years is a long time to keep people dancing in this city.
"Petrol is a night devoted to disco and house catering to those who love the music above and beyond the club scene," writes Augilar. "The crowd is usually made up of MIT grad students, DJs looking for something outside of the overplayed club bangers, fashion taste-makers and creative types looking for a well-mixed cocktail and music that stands the test of time. Residents play a mix of disco, boogie, and house, with Theo Parrish and Moodymann just two of the artists most often in mix."
See you on the dance floor.
