Bubblin’ homewerk: Jerome LOL and Astronomar 11/23

November 20, 2012 by Spectre of the Rose

For our undying Readers Dearest who have asked, the answer is, “yes.” Of course we’re going to the next Bubblin’ gig featuring Jerome LOL and Astronomar, plus homies/dj’s/producers Lincolnup and Ben Tactic. My foot has mostly healed from the bloodthirsty stilettos of Todd Edwards. There will be dancing and merriment.

I’m excited for this gig because I’m ready for sh*t to get weird. We’ve had mad European techno, disco/nu-disco, New York house and ballroom, a tinge of old-school acid house (bless you for this, Ben) and funky garage entertaining us this fall here, but we haven’t been totally freaked out in a while.

Astronomar (of Seattle) and Jerome LOL (of Los Angeles) are both freaking me out a bit already as I do my music homework, for I get really masculine (straight masculine) vibes from both of them. The former with violently hard bass-lines, and the latter with sexy slow-jams replete with bedroomy R&B vocal samples. I’m used to my dance music making me feel way queer-er than straighter. ‘Twill be so weird! Will we feel uncomfortable at venerably friendly Groove Suite? That would be a first. We’ll swallow (eww! gross!) the straight style to obtain the boundary-pushing that is Bubblin’s hallmark. I guess Astronomar is also kind of Moombahton-fresh (house / reggaeton fusion)…definitely looking forward that special brand of jam-kicking.

See you there. If we’re retreating like Baby in a corner out of fright, please be our Swayze and get us to dance. But not too dirty, please. Gross.
