Spank Rock, Rod Lee, The Epochs - Bowery Ballroom $15/$18

Now that the hype has died down a bit, it’s even easier to shamelessly recommend the mighty Spank Rock yet again. The product of a few cultural collisions that wound up marrying the sounds of the Baltimore club scene, underground hip hop, and DFA, nasty rhymes and funky minimalist beats and artful analog resonance, the duo's music not only stands formally at the crossroads of contemporary culture, but remains focused and true to its function... which is of course, rocking the party. Their show at McCarren Park Pool had to’ve been the best thing that happened there all summer. Who else could even dare to follow Gang Gang Dance – and, additionally, inspire everyone in the place to shake it like it was 2AM under a threatening overcast afternoon sky.. They continue to prove themselves a strong contender for the top party band out there.
