If you're an old person (25+), then your iPod's probably still packed with crap like the Strokes, the White Stripes, and Radiohead's monumental monument of momentous music, Kid A
. And all that stuff's fine or whatever ... But maybe it's time to take a couple steps out of 2000.
The kids these days really love to dance and their noise of choice seems as though it was generated by a cracked-out Commodore 64 with a giant boner for Giorgio Moroder
. One example is Congorock, an Italian dude who peddles the bloggy beats that make the younger-than-thou crowd bust a move like they're starring in 1984's Breakdance
. You should get to know him.
So download some free music, pretend you're still young enough to shake that ass, and make your final escape from the year 2000 when Congo rocks this Saturday's edition of Arcade at White Room.
Saturday, February 13. White Room, 1306 N. Miami Ave., Miami. The party starts at 10 p.m. and tickets cost $10 through Wantickets.com. 305-995-5050; whiteroommiami.com
