Gypsyphonic Remixes Mardi Gras


Galactic's Ben Ellman and DJ Quickie Mart built up a quick following after two servings of Balkan Bounce in their side project Gypsyphonic Disko. For their next project, the pair decided to come back home for Carnival, using nostalgic Mardi Gras classics as a base for a bounce remix. 


Treme v. The Wire Bands Weigh In Prior to Tipitina's Battle


After months of hype, it's Fight Night. Simon Bowl. Treme vs. The Wire. NOLA vs. Bal'more. Tonight, Tipitina's will host a battle of the bands pitting David Simon's two favorite cities against each other. Wearing the home uniforms will be Galactic and the Stooges Brass Band. Representing Baltimore will be Anwan "Big G" Glover and the Backyard Band and Lafayette Gilchrist and the New Volcanos. Since Don King and Justin Bieber weren't available, we figured we'd give the bands a chance to improve their Standing before the bell rings. Here's what they had to say:


Flow Tribe V. The Revivalists

NoDef Dialogues



With Bayou Boogaloo in the air, locals Flow Tribe and The Revivalists  are getting ready to play Mid-City this weekend. Both bands are leaders of a strain of NOLA indie rock that's not afraid to wear its funk and dance influences on its sleeve, and have recently been paying their dues both in the studio and on stage.


Getting In Their Mix

Familiar Faces From Soulive, Galactic Duck Behind The Tables For Friday Night Sets



Friday night, some frequent visitors of the Big Easy will bring new looks to Tipitina's, as two familiar artists will be making their New Orleans debut with DJ sets.

 


A Gypsyphonic/Katey Red/Neil Diamond Xmas


Ah, the songs for St. Nick- love them or hate them, you can't escape them; the winter wonderland soundtrack invades radios, stores, supermarkets, and advertising starting pre-Thanksgiving, and holds the reigns until well beyond NYE. Fortunately some New Orleans locals provide an exhilarating alternative to holiday sound.  

 

When you need a break from the caroling and hymns, 'Drummer Boy Phonic' is dat dat new jam, featuring dynamic duo Katey Red and Neil Diamond (together at last!), and produced/mixed by Galactic Saxophonist Ben Ellman (aka DJ Natto) and DJ Quickie respectively. Together the two make up Gypsyphonic, a 'multi-culti dance party for the ages'.
