Tonight, members of New York City dance-punk group The Rapture are laying down a dance mix at Denver’s holy night club, The Church. Which means that the group’s indie fans, renowned for standing mostly still during live shows, will likely be dancing.
Fresh off an appearance at Beta in February, The Rapture’s DJ set at the Church should be hit with rock obsessives who live for obscure cuts as well as fans of hip-hop, house, and other electronic genres. To get a feel for The Rapture’s free-wheelin’ eclecticism, check out its latest release, Tapes, a mix album that features cuts from ’60s soul group The Bar-Kays, rapper Ghostface Killah, techno-jazz collective Galaxy 2 Galaxy, and folkie Richie Havens.
