In what has to be the best way to start off the weekends in summertime LA, Hollywood premiere club, Lure has showcased an impressive DJ lineup for its recent Private Label series. Putting together big and on-the-rise talent on the same bill is not easy to do week-in and week-out, but the powers that be have done just that. Having Bag Raiders, Chris Malinchak, Fred Falke and Azari & III all headline in the month of May is pretty incredible, and closing the series out this Friday with Ladyhawke, Yacht and Neon Indian… is just plain sick.
The Kiwi, Ladyhawke, will get things started for the night. The Modular/Island Records signee has been recording a third studio alum and it is possible she can drop a new song in her mix. YACHT, the brainchild of Jona Bechtolt with the expansion of Claire L. Evans will follow suit. Having toured Asia and Australia for the past month, the DFA Records duo plan to make their welcome home show a big one. Capping the evening off will be Neon Indian. Alan Palomo will head the DJ set and this set may be more house if anything, so expect to dance. By Brian Litwin
