KAUF & MORE/RESTLESS NIGHTS PRESENTS
Painfully hip downtown joint the LASH has a lavish get together up it’s sleeve that’s chic yet intimate. To avoid the horde of eager party-goers and keep it in the fam head on down for a night to remember, or not remember if that’s the way you like get down. Pop some champagne and make sure to cheers your lovely hosts. Out with the old, and in with that new new.
2013 is soo last year...
The cool contingent otherwise known as Restless Nights had this to say;
“Restless Nites is proud to ring in the New Year with our closest friends, in one of our absolute favorite spaces, The LASH. In the past year, The Lash has established itself as a crucial center of culture in the rapidly-changing LA urban landscape, and who better than to celebrate with than a cast of talent that has really come into their own in 2013.”
Kauf (Cutters Records, LA • live/dj set)
DJ WHITNEY FIERCE ( Hercules and Love Affair/New Order tour DJ)
Remy Marc (Restless Nites/VSSL/Lights Down Low)
Z BARON (Join In The Trap/DBC)
This is an exclusive affair - RSVP REQUIRED. Hosted by the effervescent Simone Cookie Serrail (DDM) & the rabble-rousing Steven Miller (Playgurl/Through The Night/Restless Nites).
Having self-released his first two singles (Relocate and When You're Out) in 2011, Kauf signed to Cutters Records (Cut Copy's own record label) to release As Much Again - his first proper EP this past July. With his full-length nearing completion, and his first single, Relocate, getting the remix treatment by Moons, Psychemagik, Nile Delta, and Mind Enterprises, Kauf is set up for a killer 2014.
DJ WHITNEY FIERCE (Hercules and Love Affair/New Order tour DJ)
Refinery29 says, "[this girl's] about to break, big time." And perhaps this is one of those moments when you should believe the hype. After cutting her DJ teeth in NYC, she joined Hercules and Love Affair as a vocalist and touring member, singing their most recent single, "Release Me." Upon returning to LA she reunited with her first love, DJing, and has since joined the New Order family as their tour DJ, and just recently finished an EP that she is preparing to unleash on the world in 2014. Stay tuned for that, as well as her guest vocals on Subb-an's forthcoming album on Crosstown Rebels.
