A show so nice we have to do it twice. Last year we hosted an unforgettable night with RICKY EAT ACID and KITTY. At the time, KITTY had just raised $52,000 on kickstarter for her debut full-length album, Miami Garden Club, still yet to be released. Well that album has now been released, it’s a trance masterpiece and she’s currently touring the country in support of it. Dubbed as the “trance queen” of New York City, KITTY has toured as direct support to ANAMANAGUCHI, DANNY BROWN and KITTEN. We’re elated to be able to host her once again for another love-filled dance party.Maryland’s Sam Ray, also known as RICKY EAT ACID, creates ambient music, minimalism in the vein of Steve Reich and musique concrete. His first vinyl release, Three Love Songs (Orchid Tapes) garnered critical acclaim, as VICE once put it: “Featherweight electronics, aching piano, snippets of speech, even a pitched up Drake sample swirl around in a stew of delicately rendered pathos. While many ambient records try to alienate the listener from a familiar emotional spectrum, these songs describe moments of recognizable, lived-in humanity.”
