Little Village Sponsored Heaven and Hell Party, 7/15/11

UPDATE: Little Village’s festivities have been moved to the Blue Moose Tap House. Stay tuned for more information

On Friday, July 15, get your fix of house, techno, dubstep and of course, a drag show featuring Sasha Belle and friends.

As a continuation of our ten year anniversary festivities, Little Village is collaborating with the Yacht Club, Studio 13 and Solar Cathedral Productions to bring a night of heaven and hell to Iowa City.

If you haven’t already guessed, the Yacht Club will be keeping things heated with all things, well, hellish. Upstairs at Studio 13, a ‘heavenly’ experience awaits. Why, it’ll be absolutely divine.

Festivities kick off at 9:30 p.m., with the Sasha Belle and Friends drag show starting an hour later. With artists like Matt Rissi, Max Jacobson, DJ B-Fast and David Powers, the night is sure to be worth the $5 price of admission.

Little Village’s music editor Kent Williams describes Powers as a creator of “jazz and avant-garde electro-acoustic music with the house music rhythms that have been making folks sweat for the last 30 years,” and you can preview one of his latest sets below. Give it a listen, and we’ll plan see you on July 15.

More details can be found on the Heaven and Hell Party Facebook event page.
