Saturday night we’re partnering with The Stranger for a ping-pong party and pornhole toss (think naughty cornhole, *wink*) with electro-party band Don’t Talk to the Cops! and Hardly Art DJs (a Seattle label we love) at Capitol Hill’s premier rock venue, Neumos. Although the event is free, please RSVP here!
“The group’s anarchic style is somewhere between the dirty faux-hip-hop boogie of Gravy Train and the faux- soul punk freak-outs of The Make-Up. Except this movement is for real, whatever it is. And it’s really fun to listen to.” – MTV Iggy
“Don’t Talk to the Cops are… making punk-minded, irresistible breakbeat gold. Together they rap, strut, and put on a hook-stuffed synth and beat revue. It’s soul with attitude.” – The Stranger
“The new video from DTTTC! has enough firepower to stop wars and make Kim Jong-Il do the moonwalk. It has the healing power of a big-eyed puppy ON STEROIDS. It could win Connect Four in THREE MOVES. Well, you get the point.” – Seattle Weekly
Tell your folks: DON’T TALK TO THE COPS! DtttC’s deadly dance punks djblesOne and emecks cut loose, deep and wide with razor sharp moves and pointed pop sensibilities. Their sound is informed by pop, electro, punk, soul and hip-hop, with songs that are crazy catchy and melodic—hard to pin down, but very easy to dance to. On stage the group blend chaos and choreography—jumping, flashing, bugging out—whipping the audience into a grinning, dancing frenzy.
djblesOne is an accomplished dj/producer whose influential productions and DJ mixes have helped shaped the last decade of b-boy culture. His partner in crime, emecks, clocks in at only half his height but her larger than life style and pro dance moves bring outsized attitude to this dynamic duo. Their combined dance vision is abetted by hype man El Mizell, providing backup vocals and pops of energy to an already tight live setup.
Since unleashing their first album in March 2010, DON’T TALK TO THE COPS! have been all over the map. Notable performances include the Capitol Hill Block Party, Doe Bay Fest, Reverb Festival and City Arts Festival, along with house shows, fashion parties, mainstages and other festival appearances. The group just finished their second album, Let’s Quit, which came out April 3 on Greedhead Music, and plan to make love to your ears, eyes, and feet this year, so get ready.
