New Years' Party! (a big maybe)

| More

Hey all. The Art de Trois dance has been postponed until tomorrow night... but we're working hard to get a BYOB, FREE event going on tonight at the same space. Stay tuned here or wait for a text message or call one of the DJs for details.

We've heard that liquor stores will be closing early, so take the time now to get your fix on lock. 

I hope to see you TONIGHT to ring in the REAL NEW YEAR....
There is a REAL chance we'll be snowed in tomorrow, so snacks and non-alcoholic beverages might also be a good idea.

DJ Joyride
Icedbreaks Entertainment

Hello and HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE everyone! This just is from the Art de Trois team:

Due to this particularly strong blizzard in Fargo, the Art de Trois dinner, art auction, and dance are officially postponed. We will host all 3 events tomorrow night. We do hope that you will stay warm and safe tonight. We have even heard that the Hospital (walk'ins, etc) are closed.

Stay safe and warm... and we'll pretend this never happened --- TOMORROW NIGHT.

The Art de TEAM!

A Touch of Class (event) Nov. 20th

| More

Next Saturday, the crew and I are exploring a new idea for nightlife in the Fargo-Moorhead area. Before the winter arrives, we invite you and your most interesting friends to meet us and our most interesting friends. We're building a Touch of Class to be a social night, complete with billiards, darts and plenty of seating area. Your entertainment for the night includes 2 comedians, and a chance to get intimate with DJ Ajent Orange from Minneapolis.


Ajent Orange is resident DJ at a number of Minneapolis hotspots including Twilight, and Camp. AJ Has agreed to let us have it, engaging us throughout the night with a very extended 3+ hour set. :) Want a sample of AJs style? has a nice selection here.

Nick Wieme and T.L. Halverson will bring the funny next Saturday. Laughter is contagious and we'll all catch it together when two Fargo comics take the stage just before 11pm.  Whether you've had a crummy week or one of your best, this type of commotion will be a welcome change to Fargo's typical night-on-the-town. We've been following Nick and Torrey's stand-up work for months and we're sure you'll like it.

Please invite your most interesting friends to join us on Saturday night...  Arrive looking fly before 10pm and our photographer will give you a keepsake photograph to remember the night.

Our first U-Stream session at Icedbreaks Entertainment...

| More

I traded video quality for audio quality... and that was a pretty poor decision. I think I could've kept both.

Vincent Farvard and I met during Culture Shock and Secret Stereo Pt.4 last weekend in Grand Forks, ND. He is a very versatile DJ from France, also a student at NDSU. He stopped by our studio before his last final. Tuesday he is headed to France for the summer. Look for Vincent and I to do some shows in the fall of 2010.

This Is AnG

| More

AnG (Angela Hunt) is an emerging pop artist from North Dakota. Some of my good friends at Innovator & Einstein have put together a few tracks with her and I think that they're onto something. I never thought that they'd be working on such pop music, but it works.

To all readers and fans of Icedbreaks, enjoy these couple of tunes from AnG. My favorite is "Wishy Washy." Don't let it get stuck in your head just yet... more music is coming soon.

Arson to Rock PDX at Symmetry

| More

This month's installment of SYMMETRY is gonna be a banger! 

We bring to you:

( / hoochiepalace)

This cat sold me with one CD. Come to find out, with a little research, and a full endorsement from SUFF-X,
he is more than worthy of anything thrown at him. Seriously, we here in PDX
are blessed to have this wizard in our presence. Catch up! You might get ran over.


Derrick has mad depth. I remember playing my first show here in PDX with him @ Therapy in maybe 2003(?)
and he had already BEEN bringing it for YEARS. A transplant from the original rave community (:P), he has been
here since before you knew the difference between 2step and techstep. The thing is, he has his ear on the pulse.
The tracks I hear come out of his soul during the times I get to hear, Command the crowd. You'll see.

(Phantom Hz / Endless Nights)

Rei seems to spend most of her precious nights in the studio and out of the club. Good looking out! We all wish we could.
At any rate, we are blessed with a moment in time where we will be in the club while Aurei is most likely dropping the fruits of her labor... (YAY!)

LoWeR/ Bloodshot Riddims/ Symmetry

Uh Oh. As a member of LoWeR and Bloodshot Riddims, as well as the founding father of SYMMETRY, it may be
in your best interest to show up early to witness the debauchery. He has a chip to burn clear off his shoulder.
Come absorb some radiation!
(And I promise to wear a shirt.)

How Records Got Their Groove Back

How Records Got Their Groove Back

As CDs fade away, there's a new vinyl answe
"They lied to us, man," he said.

Flipping through old vinyl albums at a used-record shop, I did what anyone does when a fellow human bares his soul: I ignored him. "They said CDs would sound better," he persisted. "They lied!" He rapped a vintage Ramsey Lewis album on the edge of the bin, like a gavel, releasing that distinct scent of dust and decomposing cardboard.

"I got rid of my record player. I let my records go. And they never even bothered to bring back half of my old jazz albums. Not half. It was like they hooked us, and then they gutted us."

It was a spontaneous outburst, but the gist of it I've been hearing for years among frequenters of the vinyl bins: despite the advantages of compact disks (CDs) over vinyl—you'll never hear a CD pop or click, and you can access any track instantly—the supposed perfection of the format was overstated. Of course, the companies were just as over-the-top about LPs. Here's a quote from my vinyl copy of Tony
