The Kush Club has been bringing quality electronic music acts to Brisbane for just over a year now. Always offering fun, interesting music and striving to provide something different to the run-of-the-mill licenced establishments (they threw an afternoon boat party back in April), this event should be no exception.
According to the event's Facebook page, the space will allow control over the sound, lighting "and all those other bits that really contribute to a special night."
Jam City is the moniker of a young, UK-hailing producer named Jack Latham. More personal details about this guy are scarce. Night Slugs, the label he is affiliated with, is similarly skint on details, preferring to focus the attention on their releases, and is recognised around the world to be at the forefront of innovative electronic music.
Jam City's debut album Classical Curves garnered support from Resident Advisor, Pitchfork and a whole bunch of other publications, landing it on many end of year lists. It's not a traditional pop album that would get lodged firmly in one's head for days at a time, but it has a unique quality that many haven't been able to put their finger on, and that is what keeps drawing listeners back in.
Special one-off gigs like these need to be supported if they are going to be a re-occurring feature of Brisbane nightlife, and support them we should; they are always the best nights out.
