PART TIME PUNKS is a club that takes over noted Echo Park live music venue, The Echo on 1822 Sunset, every Sunday night. The night focuses heavily on DIY and Indie vinyl coming out of the U.S., UK and Europe from 1977 to the present: Punk, Post-Punk, Synth-Punk, Synthpop, Minimal Synth, Dark/Cold/Minimal Wave, NDW, Industrial, New Wave, No Wave, C86, Indiepop, Twee, Shoegaze, Baggy and even Krautrock…
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...)
Finally. A nite devoted to one of Part Time Punks' favorite bands EVER. So. Spend the evening dancing to yer favorite Cocteau Twins tracks, from 'Garlands' to 'Milk & Kisses,' plus a healthy dose of their 4ad labelmates like Lush, Pale Saints, Swallow, Dead Can Dance, Clan Of Xymox AND some lovely shoegaze/dreampop like My Bloody Valentine, Chapterhouse, Curve, Seefeel and much more... With Guest DJ Phil Doomie from LA's long-running dreampop club Violaine!
Part Time Punks pays tribute to legendary LA punk label DANGERHOUSE RECORDS.
This historic show WILL sell out. It's just a matter of how fast. So get yer tix now.

Not only will Jose Maldonado be Guest DJing this time around, but he will also performing a very special acoustic set of Smiths & Morrissey tracks with some very special friends--starting at 9:30pm!
Then, stick around and spend the rest of the evening oscillating wildly to the songs that saved your life...aka your favourite tunes by Morrissey and The Smiths! With a healthy dash of Moz's inspirations and contemporaries (and even a few Smiths clones thrown in to see just how big of fan you really are...) Of course Cut Out Morrissey will be there courtesy of PTP photog, Dylan Gordon aka D-M-A-X, for all your endless dancefloor contortions and photo op demands...
