Dance music, being at the forefront of top 40 music for the last few years, has gained a new stereotype. The stereotype consists of stepping into a venue with bros, more than half naked girls, tank tops, fake Ray-Bans, designer drugs and crazy lights.
Dirtybird Records, having been around since 2005, has been a groundbreaker in house music with artists such as Justin Martin and Claude VonStroke. The label has become known for its yearly BBQ that is typically held in Miami where people come to enjoy food, friends and groundbreaking house beats. This year, Dirtybird is taking their BBQ on the road to a few major cities in North America.
This coming weekend, the Dirtybird Label will be gracing the city of Detroit with their presence at the Masonic Temple Lot. Performers will include label superstars Claude VonStroke and Justin Martin with supporting acts J. Phlip and Christian Martin. Dirtybird is promising that, “There will be minimum fist pumping & maximum booty shaking,” showing that they will not contribute to the stereotype and are just looking for people to have a good time. Beginning at 2:00 PM on August 31st and going until 9:00 PM, this will be the darty that people want to be a part of this Labor Day weekend.
