Part Time Punks takes over Los Globos to throw a new monthly dance party fusing the best indie & alternative music of the 1980s & 90s...! But what is "Alternative Music?" you ask. Why, that was the then handy-dandy rock journalist term for the very best in indie music that was coming out at the time. A broad, non-genre specific term that described bands as disparate (and remarkable) as The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Smiths, Morrissey, New Order, Nine Inch Nails, Nirvana, The Pixies, The Pale Saints, Ride, My Bloody Valentine, Spiritualized, Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins, Bjork, PJ Harvey, Radiohead, Blur, Oasis, Front 242, NItzer Ebb, Nick Cave, The Fall... And that's exactly what you'll hear all nite long courtesy yer selecters Michael Stock from PART TIME PUNKS and Jose Maldonado from SWEET & TENDER HOOLIGANS... AND it's a fucking SATURDAY! (Which means NO work and NO school the next day, so you all can stay out late and dancedancedance...)
DEPECHE MODE NITE returns to Part Time Punks... With Guest DJs Alex and Ray, who do the Annual Depeche Mode Convention (as well as AM/FM, Reflex, Club Planet Earth and Transistor)
So. Come spend a nite on the dance floor dedicated to tunes spanning the thirty year career of Depeche Mode (plus a healthy dose of synthpop and minimal synth tunes by DM's contemporaries & clones). And, of course, PTP photog Dylan aka D-M-A-X will be there with cut-out Dave Gahan for yer endless dancefloor photo ops.
