iconic indie-electronic label DIM MAK RECORDS vs seminal San Francisco indie club POPSCENE!
this banger party features Little Boots from the UK (DJ set) + a live set from SF post-electro punks MANICS and DJ support from JEFFREY PARADISE (Poolside/Blow Up) and Popscene resident DJ AARON AXELSEN
More on Little Boots
Little Boots' ties with DJ culture are deep and long-running. From her first legendary white label release 'Stuck On Repeat', produced by Joe Goddard, to gracing Mixmag's cover, to her critically revered 2013 sophomore album Nocturnes, a veritable ode to dance scenes through the ages; it's hard to think of another popstar to have garnered anywhere near as much credibility from the dance world's inner-circle.
Whether it's collaborating with the who's-who of clubbing's bleeding edge on her own tunes (recent collaborations have included Maya Jane Coles, Hercules and Love Affair, DFA's Tim Goldsworthy, and long-term comrades Simian Mobile Disco) to her own decorated DJ career, from day one she's managed to maintain a dual life; both behind the mic and the decks.
Highlight DJ sets range from Space's closing We Love party in Ibiza (where she hosted her own room), to LA's notorious Electric Daisy Carnival and the legendary Glastonbury festival, covering nearly every major city on the planet in between. Her mixes for everyone from Thump to Bugged Out are known, much like her choice in collaborations, to veer from classic disco to the latest house and techno beats, always maintaining a sense of party fun, and are bound to feature some ultra rare edits and bootlegs in their midst.
More on MANICS
MANICS is a San Francisco indie dance live act comprised of Jordan Deherrera and Chris Sanders. Their performances are a medley of indie pop vocals, live bass & synth work, percussion and modulation; accompanied by matching lights and visuals.

The duo are also the master-minds behind the bay-area indie label POPGANG Records. Founded in 2013, the label features artists and producers across a wide swath of genres and sub-cultures while retaining a cohesive identity built on the punk-DIY mentality turned modern.

Their most recent single dropped in December 2017 with Dim Mak Records and the duo have more material on the way.
