Bauhaus/Love and Rockets bassist/vocalist David J will be DJing tonight at Costa Mesa's Detroit Bar for the LaBoiteFunk Dance Party. “I shall be spinning a deep lounge concoction of electronic Latin Jazz tinged grooves / dub N more,” David J said, when contacted via MySpace. Also, FYI: I've heard rumors to the effect that anyone requesting “Bela Lugosi's Dead” will be thrown into a vat full of guano.
Detroit Bar, 843 W. 19th St., Costa Mesa, (949) 642-0600, 9 p.m., $10.
Here's a brief video of Mr. J spinning a song that sounds familiar, but I can't quite identify it—maybe something like Handsome Boy Modeling School, Tom Vek, or the Go! Team?
