2nd Kaleidoscope Caravan Club @ Cargo 03/10/09

2nd outing for Cargo's Kaleidoscope Caravan Club and the groundbreaking Honesty Box Payscheme. The deal is simple: you pay what you think the night's worth on the door, and half the money goes to Amnesty International. This week curating duties go to the mysterious Five Easy Pieces crew, and they couldn't have done a better job of it: a line-up that is exciting, ecclectic, and most importantly, great quality music. Just how it should be.

"Nite Jewel is the alter ego of one Ramona Gonzalez". So starts this great interview in FACT Magazine with the brains behind this LA based trio, in which we learn how they hooked up with no pain in pop for the release of their LP Good Evening, why Nite Jewel only record on 8-track, and Ramona's various art side-projects. Nite Jewel's music is hard to categorise, which in itself is a good thing. If you put a gun to my head and forced me to pigeonhole their music the words electronica, disco, dreampop, and ambient would certainly be summoned, but Nite Jewel is much more than the sum of these parts. Check them out here, then come to their London debut gig and album launch for Five Easy Pieces at Cargo, and then go out and buy their album.

The Golden Filter have remixed the likes of Cut Copy, Little Boots, Empire of the Sun, Polly Scattergood, and Peter Bjorn and John; so you can guess from the outset that they have good taste. Listen to their own productions, and the speculation turns into gold solid fact. Driven by punchy disco drums and driving disco basslines, and beautifully adorned by lovely chords and angelic girl vocals, their sound is not one you are likely to forget once you've set ears on it. Get ready for some utterly beguiling lo-fi disco action tonight.

And we come to the all important peak time dj. You know, the one who has to effing smash it. And the honours tonight go to Parisian neon-electro producer slash dj Mikix the Cat. His releases on Trouble & Bass have been devastating dancefloors all accrossthe world. But these pale in comparison with his ridiculously energetic dj sets. You need to see to believe... and sweat like a bastard in the process.

Often compared to The Field, Gold Panda makes dreamy glitch electronica from his bedroom studio. Drawing from a whole universe of influences, his music crosses boundaries and appeals to heads of all persuasions. Already chosen by Simian Mobile Disco and Various Production as tour companions, Gold Panda is one to watch. And watch him you can, tonight, at Cargo.

Five Easy Pieces has a new resident dj. He goes by the name Count Chocula and has the best collection of wigs in the world. That's all we are allowed to say.




Pay what you want*

*50% of proceedings will go to Amnesty International

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
