DJ Assault @

Ok, last year UHF, Sensory Effect & Shameless threw a Taurus birthday party with DJ Assault at the Baltic Room. It was ridiculous fun. The picture below is evidence. (Click it to view more pictures from that party)

This year I get to do it again, but at the even more intimate setting of CHAC's Lower Level. DJ Assault is like a 14 year old boy trapped in a man's body. It's hard to say anything serious around him without him chuckling over something like the fact that I just said hard. Swank said he's working on trying to get some drag queens to come party with us. I can't even begin to imagine that scenario. DJ Assault, Jacob London & Drag Queens?! WTF!!! Anyway, to get you in the mood, I grabbed a DJ Assault track from the Pound for Pound blog.
"Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me..."

April & May Events

Friday, April 27th

Pretty Titty (Sing Sing)
Recess (Shameless)
@ Electric Avenue

Details below...

What The Stranger says:
While Pretty Titty usually goes for the pop-music-in-a-blender approach and Recess keeps things techno-centric, the common thread between these two DJ/promoters is a strong commitment to the debaucherous side of a good night out. It's hard to fathom how crazy a party could get with both the Death of the Party and Shameless crews in full force, but it's even harder to understand why you would miss it.

Obligatory bRave

Shameless Warriors had a little meeting last night. We've all been incredibly busy lately so it was great to get together for a bit. Menami throw together some kick ass banana splits (serious.) and we sat around the table and chatted about our hopes and dreams. Although the phrase "obligatory rave" kept coming up (thanks Justin!), we were able looked past the lasers and glowsticks to discuss streamlining our creative efforts via a new blog.

Hopefully, you'll be seeing a bunch of posts compliments of the entire Shameless Crew. New tracks, mixes, flyers, pictures along with more heated and generally not-so-serious discussions of the phrase "obligatory rave".

Yeah, we had an old blog, but it didn't get very far. This new one will take us to space and back without costing a million dollars for a 15 minute float.

Here are a few of the posts (compliments of 'copy and paste') that managed to sneak onto the old blog. Old news, we know...New news to come!

What is Shameless?

In 2003 after the popular club night Robo.Trash ended, Shameless was created not just name the new Saturday night alternative dance party at the Alibi Room, but to describe the weekly's aesthetic. Off the beaten path and in the basement of the bar residents DJs and guests performed live or DJ'd electro, techno, discopunk, house, acid and other boundary-crossing genres. Quickly the night gained local attention. "…hosted by DJs Recess and Misha (Michelle Furedy), [Shameless] has overcome its underground location to become one of the city's most refreshingly unpretentious and musically vibrant shindigs." – The Stranger, 2004.

After almost a year @ the Alibi Room Shameless 1.0 ended, while 2.0 brought the crew (now including VJ FOC: EYE) up to Capitol Hill for a few official after parties following shows for Miss Kittin, Felix Da Housecat & the first Decibel Festival. Soon after they teamed up with MC Anton Bomb of Club YES! and brought the party to the Rebar for monthly Saturday night adventures. The 2nd annual 'My Bloody Valentine is Shameless' and the Damian Lazarus/ Smash TV party were a couple of many memorable events that kept the dance floor alive until 3:00 am.

After taking a break in spring 2005, Shameless went on a mini tour of the Northwest and has since exploded onto the scene as a production collective known locally for throwing fun, dance floor pounding parties, and encouraging community development through social and creative support and collaboration. Recent one offs for Shameless have included headliners DJ Assault, Modeselektor and Egyptian Lover. Currently the roster consists of live act Tekgnosis (Bird & m.0), Justin Byrnes (Live/DJ), Recess (DJ), FOC: EYE (VJ), Anton Bomb (MC) & Menami (Jill-of-all-trades). Various residencies over the past and present year involved clubs such as the Chapel Bar (Co-Op), See Sound Lounge (Faux Disco), Des Amis & The Crescent Lounge (BootyLIB), ToST, Capitol Hill Arts Center (CHAC) and Nijo. With an eye for stellar local and international talent, Shameless often finds itself balancing the long established circles of techno, electro, house, rave, ghettotech, punk, and rock, while dancing their asses off.
