The Haps: Glory Daze & London Calling at the Gramophone

| Scene Events Columnist

Are you sick of going out and hearing the same four Lady Gaga songs over and over again? Then go to the Gramophone on April 3, where Glory Daze and London Calling, along with several other DJs, will be spinning great dance songs all night. London Calling, a group of well-known St. Louis DJs, is famous for playing British and other international dance hits. They favor songs and artists that are big in Europe and just beginning to make a splash in the U.S. They also do remixes of old favorites you never thought you could dance to. In short, if you want to move to some new grooves, these guys are the ones to listen to.

The Gramophone is located at 4243 Manchester Ave. in the Grove, a part of St. Louis not often visited by Washington University students. The area, however, is quickly becoming known for its nightlife; checking out a show at the Gramophone promises to be a fun night that is full of new faces. You won’t need to worry about grinding up on somebody only to realize too late that the person is “that kid from bio class.”

The show is 21 and over (sorry freshmen) and costs $6 with an RVSP or $8 at the door. You can RVSP ahead of time at thegramophonelive.com/rsvp/. Since Pabst Blue Ribbon sponsors the event, the first 100 people who come with an RSVP by 10 p.m. get a free PBR beer. The Gramophone also offers a decent drink list with an extensive beer list and a string of specialty cocktails, including things like a Chewbacca, a Ginger SNAP! and a Moscow Mule.

And the great thing about this sure-to-be-epic night is that you can repeat it over and over again. London Calling is already scheduled to play at the Gramophone two more times this month, on April 10 and April 24. If you can’t make it this Saturday, you can always catch them the next time they perform.

So if you’re tired of the usual bump-and-grind and you’re ready for some new tunes to dance your heart out to, check out Glory Daze and London Calling at the Gramophone this Saturday. It will be so awesome that you won’t be able to keep your feet still if you try.
