Saturday, July 16
The dark corners of Allentown’s DBGB, lit only by the shine of disco ball reflected light, might seem uninspiring to most, but to guys like Cobra Krames, those deep club crevices are paradise. Cobra, real name Sean Krames grew up in the dark corners of similar Brooklyn clubs, putting his stamp on a wide variety of genres, from house to dubstep and hip-hop. As a DJ he started from scratch, putting together bedroom mixes while attending college at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Now he covers everything from cutting edge new releases to party favorites, releasing mixes on Top Billin records and Gold Whistle. As producer he has released singles like the dark and galloping “Firewalker” and “Nightstalker” on Subdrive records (you can check out dubstep, hip-hop, and club mixes, as well as his original tracks at soundcloud.com/cobrakrames). Armed with his 303 and an arsenal of your favorite parking lot anthems, Krames will bring the party, presented by the Queen City Cartel, to DBGB on Saturday (July 16) with local support from DJs D.Cal, Snax, and Bones.
10pm. Duke’s Bohemian Grove Bar, 253 Allen St. (240-9359). $3. 21+.
