FRIDAY : Booka Shade Invades Boston (and we couldn't be happier)

This weekend is a big one, but nothing comes close to the beginning events that Friday Brings. All the way from Germany, the much-lauded DJ duo Booka Shade will be making an appearance at Mansion with opening sets by DJs Jeff Grosse and Jay Prouty. This is Booka's second ever North American appearance, and as a proud part of the esteemed Get Physical record label, we're very fortunate. Loved around the world, Booka Shade - which is comprised of Walter Merziger and Arno Kammermeier - were a synth-pop act signed to a major label in the early 90s, but were seduced into the worlds of trance and techno, and by the turn of the century they had teamed up with DJ T and M.A.N.D.Y. to help jumpstart the Get Physical label in 2002.

In 2004, with Get Physical established as one of Europe's most respected new electronic music labels, Booka Shade decided to step from the shadows and pursue their own solo career again. Known widely in the American techno scene as great remixers, much of their original work is the best of their material to date. With one of the most engaging live shows and the sound and setting of Boston's own Mansion, this is going to be a blast.

Montreal sold out, and they're ripping through the cities as they visit them one by one.

Formed by Jay Prouty of Cassiamor (Boston), Jeff Grosse of DiskHo (Montreal), and Jamie Giorgio of NEWS (Boston), their mission is to throw cutting edge music events in the city. Booka Shade is no small start!

Finally, simply because it's a fine piece of art to advertise what will be a ground-breaking event for Boston's growth spurt of a techno scene - here's the offical flier:
