Band: Black Friday Dance Party: A Tribute to Daft Punk
Date: Friday, Nov. 24, 9 p.m.
Venue: The Merry Widow, 51 S. Conception St., www.themerrywidow.net
Tickets: $5 at the door

After spending the day filling Christmas wish lists, the masses are invited to The Merry Widow to dance away their cares. Riot Dance Party will be using The Merry Widow for its Black Friday Dance Party, paying homage to one of EDM’s most prolific and popular projects: Daft Punk.

Since the late ‘90’s, French EDM duo Daft Punk has taken EDM deeper into the mainstream. While this band’s catalog boasts four releases, its influence can be witnessed in artists ranging from N.E.R.D. to LCD Soundsystem.

One of the unique aspects of EDM is a DJ’s ability to add their own touch to any piece of music. For this event, Riot Dance has tapped Mick Swagger and STRAGEROVER to provide their interpretations of Daft Punk’s catalog. This electrified lineup will also include Azalea City favorite DJ Charles III mixing and mashing Daft Punk tracks.

This trio will not stop at Daft Punk. The crowd can expect beats and bass drops to be peppered through a selection of house, hip-hop and pop hit from the past three decades.
