About the DJs

Pandemic Pete fuzes together tropical bass, cumbia, dancehall, bhangra, electro shaabi, chalga, Russian folk, bollywood, afrobeats, azonto, kuduro, Brazilian bass, Asian pop, and Balkan beats.

DJ Gordy G of TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party upholds Pittsburgh’s rich DJ legacy with an appreciation for timeless tracks and seldom-heard sounds from decades past – Northern Soul, ‘70s nightclub funk, disco and boogie, ’50 and ‘60s vintage rhythm & blues, and anything and everything in between.

DJ GBT brings a Gay Power Music set to the decks. In addition to DJing, Ginger Brooks Takahashi is currently working to open a neighborhood grocery store in North Braddock called General Sisters. Ginger’s collaborative art practice is an extension of feminist spaces and queer inquiry, actively building community and nurturing alternative forms of information distribution.

Purr Ubu closes out the evening with some Italo-disco, electro, new wave, and funky pop jams from around the world.


Frequently Asked Questions (Sort of)

What should I wear?

When dancing, the number one rule of attire is to be comfortable. When prancing, the number one rule of attire is to stand out. So search your wardrobes for that outfit that will allow you to get down and dirty, while looking flawless. Use your your imagination, have fun, and be comfortable. Always. 


How should I get to the party?

We don't necessarily recommend driving for many reasons. 1) It's a Friday night in Lawrenceville. 2) Parking will be challenging. 3) We want you to stay safe. So, please consider alternate methods of transport. There are bike racks that you can use and our partner Healthy Ride has a docking station at 42nd Street (which is just a short walk from Spirit). If you aren't the pedaling type, you can use one of the many rideshare options we have in the city. Or consider taking our fabulous city buses with Port Authority!
