Back in May, Red Bull Music Academy’s NYC takeover was highlighted by a genre-crossing Culture Clash, a fierce musical battle that was won by an unexpected crew: local dance squad Trouble & Bass. Led by Drop the Lime, a born-and-raised New Yorker who leans toward unforgiving electro and club in his sets but infuses his solo releases with (of all things) rockabilly, T&B are teaming with Verboten to throw themselves a seventh birthday party tonight at the West Village’s Sullivan Room. Expect guest sets from Fool’s Gold duo Oliver and Altern-8, that pair of Roland-wielding British rave pioneers who have performed in gas masks and chemical-protection suits. With Star Eyes, AC Slater, Tony Quattro, Doctor Jeep, Jubilee, DKDS, and Dev/Null.
