12 Years of DFA Records: Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic
From making indie kids dance again to taking Madison Square Garden by storm, from re-thinking disco house with the mind of a psych rock vet to elevating the cowbell to iconic status, DFA Records is a New York institution if there ever was one. In celebration of their 12th anniversary, we teamed up with honchos James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem fame) and Jonathan Galkin (of Jonathan Galkin fame) to assemble the whole family for the biggest DFAparty in the label’s history. Expect a full night of live performances, DJ sets, listening sessions, memories, and all-out madness in four rooms. DFA might describe themselves as too old to be new and too new to be classic. But to us, they’re exactly the right age to throw one hell of a party.
