Also great for secret events planned by time traveling Skynet terminators.
Chicago, IL, USA
Many New Yorkers don't know about Keens, yet it beats Luger's and other NYC steakhouses on every count: the food, the service, the history and the best single malt scotch selection in America. When you step into Keens you step back in time, from the antique pipe collection to the Lincoln Room, complete with a copy of the Gettysburg Address and the playbill Abe was holding when he was assassinated.
20 years into his career, Terre Thaemlitz (aka DJ Sprinkles) remains one of the more interesting and talented electronic music producers around. His gender/sexuality politics, cynicism about the music industry, and strong sense of humor enhance already strong and diverse musical styles. His DJ Sprinkles album "Midtown 120 Blues" was one of the best electronic music albums of the last 5 years.
If you're in NYC and in the mood for some deep deep house, an essential show: www.residentadvisor.net/event.aspx?227592
also featuring Tim Sweeney (!) who killed it at the Marcy Hotel
Yeah - gutted that I can't make it to that show as I can't get to NYC that weekend. Ugh.
indeed. looking forward to meeting you.
this was my FB post from last month:
More interested in flying to see this one performance than the whole of Coachella.
RA: Sound Noir with Dj Sprinkles and Tim Sweeney at TBA - New York, New York

Since you can't make it here's something to hold you over:
Robag Wruhme's live set from Nuooh in Osaka
That album is in heavy rotation on my headphones (along with Ramadanman's Fabriclive set).
Gabor's playing tomorrow at a furniture warehouse in Brooklyn. Probably one of the better places to be during the rapture.
Benjamin: That Robag set is magnificent. Thanks! How was Sprinkle's set in NYC? Did you go?
Glad you liked it! I ended up being out of town but Terre gave a lecture later in the week that was awesome.
I'm now splitting my time between SF and NYC so let me know the next time you are on a coast – would be great to catch a show.
One of the freshest electronic producers to come along in years. His music is diverse & experimental yet highly approachable. His new album "Space is Only Noise" is great, but the earlier releases like "Time for Us EP" and "Marks /Angles" are equally masterful. Check his SoundCloud page: soundcloud.com/nicolas-jaar
Nico Jaar at the Rivington Hotel was a religious experience. Have you heard the podcasts off his Clown and Sunset label? C'est magnifique!
And I hear the show at Le Bain/Standard rooftop was great too. Hope he comes to Chicago sometime soon. Love the podcasts.
