The Social Registry if one of our favorite outsider "rock" labels. The label is truly dedicated to putting out music that challenges and entertains, pushing the limits of what rock can mean. Tonight, we're thrilled to present two up and coming bands from the label: The Electro Putas make chunky, loud, noisy, psychedelic music that you can dance too. They're really fun to watch. The Icewater Scandal release their new album "No Handle" (recorded by Lee Renaldo) on the Social Registry in April. Like the Electro Putas, they are very noisy and psychedelic, but in a whole different way ... much more sprawling and epic. Also, we have the first T-Minus timelapse film/video festival upstairs, which should be amazing. Cyhl moved from Paris to the States in 1999, and has been DJing all over New Jersey, Philadelphia (with the excellent Tuning Spork crew), and New York City (frequent guest at PJay's TAG and a monthly with Bastardjazz). Tonight will be Cyhl first final scratch set. He promises to bring plenty of original material and unreleased gems from his new microhouse / minimal techno label Foundsound. He is one of the better dubby minimal techno DJ's we've heard, and we're very much looking forward to his set. You can listen to some of his online mixes here: http://www.dreamlabrecords.com/DreamLabzFM.htm Mike Walsh completely killed it last time he played at the Bunker. Nothing fancy, just well selected and seemlessly mixed feel good house music. Last time he played, almost everyone in the place was dancing. This time he's also bringing along his girlfriend, DJ Isis, who will be playing funky techno: "There is rhythm in everything, and Isis strives to capture its essence. She has been enchanting audiences all over Eastern Canada with her glowing presence on stage. Her smooth, creative mixing styles and uniquely-styled sets have earned her the privilege of playing alongside djs such as Mark Farina, Simply Jeff, the Stickmen, Miss Honey Dijon, Jelo, Dave Ralph, and Paul Edge. The future is looking pretty bright for Miss Isis. With dreams of playing everywhere possible, and a deeply-rooted passion for all things rhythmic and groovy, Claire's quest is only beginning. Back on the West Coast for good, and armed with a whole lot of attitude, this girl is more than ready for anything that comes her way."
