Introducing FREEwilly First Thursdays at Coco66

We are proud to announce our newest monthly series at Coco66, aptly named FREEwilly First Thursdays!!

The first installment will take place this coming Thurs Sept. 2nd with Apache Beat— one of our long standing favorites in the ‘hood who will be releasing their highly anticipated debut full-length, Last Chants, on October 5th. The album will feature guest appearances from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Rapture, and Lightspeed Champion.

Blood Diamonds remix of “Another Day” has been making serious waves on the internet these last few days.

And speaking of Lightspeed Champion, we’ve got Blood Orange playing as well. Another project from the laptop/guitar savvy Brit, Devonté Hynes– who somehow translates his one man show into a sort of if-Prince-played-Market-Hotel sound.

Opening the night is We Are All Romans a duo which was brought together through a mutual interest in phase patterns, sampling and 20th century classical music. And according to Brian Patrick Hill (Guitar, Vocal, Synthesizer, Samples) and Angus Tarnawsky (Drums, Vocals, FX), WAAR is neither confounded by the future or nostalgic to the past.

The night gets kicked off with DJ Whitney Fierce, and is followed by DJ sets from Apache Beat’s leading lady Ilirjana Alushaj as well as musical selections from the boys of the summery lo-fi Brooklyn faves, Beach Fossils.

Doors 7pm | 21+ | $8

We’ll be announcing a handful of special goodies in the next few days, but for now, go RSVP for your chance to win a pair of tickets to the show!
