PLAY is a party series best described as recess for adults. It's all the fun you aren't supposed to be having because you're supposedly a grown up now. With all the kids you shouldn't hang out with, but they're too much fun not to. And all the music that makes you glad you've grown up - just a little. The bells have rung.
It's time to PLAY.
Drink specials till 1AM!

JOHN TEJADA (live)
Normally associated with his peers in Techno from Detroit, Europe and elsewhere in the US and the world, John Tejada has embraced electronic music as a personal frontier, expanding on his formidable resume as a Techno recording artist as producer and remixer, DJ, and label owner. With dozens of singles, remixes, some film and TV work and contributions to sample CDs to his credit, this recent expansion has born a slew of tracks deeply informed by his uncompromised aesthetic honed over years of diligent production which finds its roots in Detroit Techno but references a far broader range of music, both in and outside of electronic music. His musically formative years were steeped in Classical music, growing up in family of performing artists-his mother a soprano singer and his father a conductor which then widened to include hip hop, DJing and finally, electronic music.
Hoj is a visuals virtuoso by day, he directs the decks by night. After creating the marketing and directing the music video for PLAY, Hoj will demonstrate that he is a master of all media. His eclectic and distinct blend of house and techno earned him a night alongside Cassy at Berlin's legendary Panorama Bar and some of the world's greatest, including Jon Digweed, Carl Cox, Steve Lawler and many more. He's crafted his musical journeys across Europe, the South Pacific, South, Central & North America, and earlier this summer, was named the West Coast resident for Lee Burridge's All Day I Dream events, having opened in Mexico, Montreal, LA and NYC, as well as atop the Robot Heart Bot in Black Rock City.
