If you’re in the mood for an eclectic, high-energy dance party, be sure to hit TRU on Saturday, May 1. Continuing the string of top-flight DJ talent appearing in Indianapolis, The Party Til Dawn crew has assembled an eclectic set of DJs for the evening, headlined by Chicago’s Willy Joy. Willy is known for his versatility and nonstop party energy, deftly taking partiers on a journey through hip hop, hipster disco and jacking house cuts.
Joy, a Minneapolis, native moved to Chicago and caught fire with his “Fly By Night” monthly parties, and earned the respect of dance bloggers everywhere with the “Fly By Night Vol. 1” mix tape. Since then, he’s racked up accolades back in 2007amongst dance music’s cognoscenti, including been named to URB Magazine’s Next 100. His electric live sets have been a must-see at SXSW the past 2 years, and his set at last summer’s Lollapalooza (in front of his adopted home town crowd, no less) kept people buzzing. On the production front, he’s done remix work for Hollywood Holt, Wale and Lady GaGa, and has been releasing remixes co-produced with DJ Benzi over the course of the past year.
There will be two rooms of sound for the event, with support from local DJs Phenom, Taylor Norris & Ben Wu, Brandon Patrik, Crooked Grin, Turtle Matt, Liar Mouth, Stwebot, Gizzmo and Manic, Cover is $10 (ladies ½ price until midnight), doors @ 9pm.
