Monthly Foundry Dance Party To Feature KVMRx DJs
Written by Sean Dooley on November 7, 2019
A new monthly dance party launches Thursday, Nov. 7 at the Miner’s Foundry, downtown Nevada City, from 7 to 10 p.m. — with disc jockeys from KVMRx, the free-form experimental music stream (kvmrx.org) associated with KVMR Community Radio.
“We’ll be spinning hits from all the best decades of rock, pop, funk, soul, roots and beats on the best dance floor in Nevada City,” says KVMR Music Director Sean Dooley-Miller, who has been coordinating the stream’s programming and content since it started 2 1/2 years ago.
“Further, we’ll be highlighting new generations of talented DJ’s from our neck of the woods willing to take chances, shatter preconceived notions of what radio is and should be, and provide cutting edge musical content,” according to Dooley-Miller.
That will include Hip-Hop, Electronic, Indie Rock, Metal, Experimental, World Beat to anything else that moves & grooves.
“KVMRx is cultivating a unique music discovery experience for our community and beyond,” adds Dooley-Miller.
Two KVMRx volunteer broadcasters will split time at the premiere dance party:
–7 p.m., Mystic Al. Host of “The Funk Train Xpress,” a weekly Funk Xtravaganz taking you down the tracks to Funkdom, Wednesdays, 10 p.m. to midnight on KVMRx (kvmrx.org). Website: http://kvmrx.org/shows/funk-train-express
