Escort Hits Brooklyn
On Friday, May 24 Escort is going to hit Brooklyn hard, traveling back several decades to one of the raddest disco parties around. For those of you who thought disco was dead, think again. This 17-piece disco orchestra delivers a one-in-a kind musical journey which will keep you dancing for days. Founded in Brooklyn, Eugene Cho and Dan Bailis put together a super group of artists including front lead vocalist Adeline Michèle.
In 2006, Escort really hit it big with their series of critically-acclaimed 12″ singles, including “Starlight” and “All Through The Night.”
The party starts at 9:00pm this Friday at the Music Hall of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Joining the band are special guests DJ Lady Miss Kier (Deee-Lite), Tippy Toes, Leverage Models, JKriv (DJ Set). Escort are known for keeping parties going well through the night, so get ready. You can get your tickets to the show from the link below!
Escort’s long awaited self-titled debut LP was released January 31, 2012. The entire album is steeped in the venerable tradition of clubland’s holy trinity – New York, Chicago, and Detroit – but it seems particularly reminiscent of mutant-pop luminaries such as Kid Creole and the Coconuts and Ian Dury, who somehow managed to translate their sardonic sensibilities to the dance-floor. And by embracing the legacy of these forward-thinking but classic acts, they have yet managed to create something strikingly new. — The Big Up
