Dance Music

The Presets were pretty fantastic at the Hiro Ballroom last night, as were the Ed Banger DJ's. One of the more packed houses that I've seen at Hiro (and even Kele from Bloc Party was there), and the crowd was treated to an energetic set by one of Modular's finest. I loved the live drumming to go along with the programmed beats and synths. The duo even threw in "Da Funk" by Daft Punk, before slowly segueing into "Girl and Sea" (one of the greatest songs ever). BV has a nice round-up of the night. The Presets will be playing with Datarock and Lo Fi Fink at Studio B tomorrow night.

Underworld will be hitting Central Park on September 14th, as part of a US tour. They were one of the few bright spots at the ill-fated Field Day at Giants Stadium a few years ago (nothing gets a rain-soaked crowd going like "Born Slippy:Nuxx"), and I'm looking forward to seeing them again.
