Instamatic at The Ball!

There's nothing we like more than playing an awesome dance party. It just makes sense. It's kind of who we are, it's what we do better than anyone else (except maybe The Juan Maclean or The Incredible Bongo Band).

So we were super stoked when ace dj and all-around great dude DJ Apt One asked us to play the December edition of his awesome KFN monthly The Ball. We'll even have a classic disco cover in our set ("Who be puttin out they Kools on my carpet?!").

You probably shouldn't fucking miss this.

TIGERBEATS on November 14th

We're playing Philly's awesomest weeknight dance party Monday, November 14th. Rumor has it that it might just be Tigerbeats' anniversary party that night too. If so, get ready to call out of work Tuesday.

This is what we look like when we're being awesome...

Well, it took three years but somebody finally got the whole band in a friggin photo. Many thanks to Joe for pulling off what countless other (presumably well paid) party photographers couldn't. We've had a lot of dudes with fancy cameras surrounded by coteries of 19 year old girls cloyingly begging to be made momentarily famous (to literally dozens of people!) snap pics of us for their websites and fail to pull off what only Joe could accomplish.

So this is us.

And this is our stuff.

Check out Joe's pics from the party, which by the way was a lot of fun:

Thanks Tiberino! Thanks Aaron Ruxbin!, Thanks hula-hoopin girl! Thanks West Philly, sorry about the noise.
