FRIDAY: Top Tape at Hyperion Tavern (Silver Lake)

Come get reel to REAL with Dublab’s analog-obsessed Top Tape gang. Aural Standards will be there alongside music-minded beings like Matthewdavid, Frosty, Walter Gross, Jonwayne, Low Limit, Sun Araw and, if we’re lucky, AS fave DJ Crazy Scotty Str8 From Rehab (these are examples, not promises). All sexy cassingles are invited to mingle to this mix of ambient haze, screwed rap, fukt folk, and experimental freakiness (1941 Hyperion Ave, 90027). On FB.

We DJ tapes. FREE FUN for you.

It’s going down at the Hyperion Tavern in Silver Lake tonight. Dublab’s Top Tape monthly starts at 10 p.m., and the DJ (CJ?) list is strictly sign-up. All cassettes, all night.

Ever hear “Kiss From a Rose” on Promethazine? Try it.

The sounds I hear when you’re with
me express the way that you feel.
And you say … uhh … ahh.”

Had the extreme pleasure of spooling (like “spinning,” but with cassettes) at Dublab’s Top Tape night at the Hyperion Tavern on Friday night. So did amazing folks like Walter Gross, Jonwayne, Speculator, Matthewdavid, Frosty and DJ Crazy Scotty Straight from Rehab. Me? Gil DeVoe? Eh?

These aren’t the exact vrsns, but a great (the best?) way to begin the week:
