Weekend Dance Party: Junior Boys Hit Smart Bar

By Jake Guidry in Arts & Entertainment on Jun 19, 2010 4:15PM

2010_06_19_juniorboys.jpg Business as usual with this week's pick for Weekend Dance Party, as the one-and-only Smart Bar will host Canadian electronic-pop outfit Junior Boys, along with suppot sets from Major Taylor and Popstatic. Jeremy Greenspan and Matthew Didemus, the men behind Junior Boys, have a magic touch when it comes to their special brand of summery electronic music, constructing infectious hooks and choruses atop punchy synth and extremely tight percussion. While it is a DJ set rather than a live show, we're hoping they'll mix in their own work, right alongside the great electro, house and techno they're known for spinning. Their support, locals Major Taylor and Popstatic, aren't to be missed either, so get there early and stay till the lights come on.

Junior Boys, tonight, Smart Bar, 10pm, 21+, $10 tickets ($15 after midnight)
