Join Helix Collective for the release of their latest CD, World Dance Club. You'll enjoy a live performance, quickie dance lessons and dancing. Helix Collective celebrates the release of World Dance Club, a recording in the club classical genre, on Phat Yak Records. Club classical is music for bars and clubs by classical musicians who cut their teeth in that scene. It fuses hip hop, world, rock and classical styles. The Free Times called Helix Collective's version of the genre classical "kicked in the ass by a rock drum set."
The band will perform music from the album along with quickie dance lessons for the audience. Everyone is then invited to boogie-down. The music is a lightning-speed trip around the world including Three Bollywood Dances by film composer Mark Weiser; a Klezmer, Waltz and Rag by New York composer Stephen Dankner; Me Quema by the LA-based salsa band, the Berger-Sanchez Project; Tom, a bluegrass song by Serban Nichifor and Mixer Dances, renaissance-hard rock tunes by ensemble composer, Phil Popham. Don't miss the classical dance club party and celebration!
The Party will take place during Happy Hour so be sure to take advantage of the drink specials. The Silverlake Lounge does not take reservations. Seating is first come first served. It is important to be punctual. There is no cover and no drink minimum. The bar only accepts cash. This is a dive bar--casual attire is fine. Free parking onsite. Food can be brought in from Cafe Tropicale next door or Silverlake Ramen across the street. 21 and over.
