August 30 might as well be New Year’s Eve in Boston. Come Labor Day weekend, roughly a quarter million students will infest our fine city, clogging T stations and sidestreets with dumbfounded looks and bad fashion. In preparation, we’re going underground. The W Hotel’s Electric Summer Music Series keeps the subterranean beat alive at Descent (100 Stuart St) for party collective JASS’s one year anniversary, featuring headlining sets from Providence’s THE RANGE and Los Angeles’ Gossamer and Moiety (the Melt), while the label and club night’s resident crew of Time Wharp, T-Dredz, Fens, and Taye Digg$ keep the downtown venue’s elongated dance floor packed and your cocktail glass emptied.
Like Protokoll back in the mid-2000s, we're always moving forward here at the Phoenix. So after the dust settles on our three-night Boston Accents Funeral Party next week, we're launching a new live music series at the W HOTEL and their subterranean DESCENT nightclub.
The ELECTRIC SUMMER MUSIC SERIES kicks off Thursday, July 26 at the W with a special live performance by INTO THE ALPHA, a new experimental electronic project from Cobi Mike of Gentlemen Hall.
