APT, that place with the fabulous sound system and never ending lineup of amazing talent, turns five. They are celebrating with a set from special guest Luke Vibert. The veteran dance music producer has made records under a myriad of monikers for labels as distinguished and varied as Warp and Ninja Tune, when both labels were hot shit. Vibert, who is by turns nerdy enough for indie rockers and funky enough for the trendy scenesters, is the perfect choice to please APT's cross section of loyals. Now, if I just close my eyes and click my red ruby shoes three times, I'll get a proper dancefloor.
With local boys Roy Dank, Tim Sweeney, Ben Dietz, and James Friedman. Fri @ 10, APT, 419 W 13th, 212-414-4245
