Welcome to the residency bonanza of January 2018! We made it to the New Year, and with its first month comes a slew of residencies: weekly shows helmed by locals Metasota, jeremy messersmith, Charlie Parr, the Cactus Blossoms, and Andrew Broder. We’ll be posting photos and a brief recap of several of the series’ first nights.
The residencies roll on this week with Andrew Broder’s Turf Club kick-off. Joined by Dua, Psymun, Spank Rock, Midnite Express, and “very special guests” Shredders, Broder raised money for the ACLU and wowed the audience. Although he DJed for Spank Rock and spun some new music between acts, Broder never played a proper set — but his line-up did more than enough heavy lifting.

Last night at the Turf was a beautiful display of music and community and action and understanding. V grateful to have witnessed it. Thanks @AndrewBroder for putting the whole thing together. Three more awesome residencies to go. Get to em. pic.twitter.com/9VocybAlj7
