MIDTOWN SOCIAL, GAVIN TUREK

It’s time to stretch, hydrate, and double-knot your dancing shoes, because San Francisco’s favorite soul party band, Midtown Social, is back with their first full-length release. Their freshly squeezed blend of California soul, funk, and rock is downright irresistible. Midtown Social is a nine-piece tour-de- force. But it’s more than just a band. Together, these nine musicians are a collaborative community of writers, arrangers and artists. When they’re on stage, they invite you into the family. The mission is to spread the message of positive social change through art and music. MTS serves up food for hungry souls—fuel for a revolution of free, open and creative thought. Deeply inspiring and guaranteed to make you sweat just as much as it makes you think, Midtown Social presents a message of solidarity and hope, voiced by a community of people who are as diverse, bold, authentic, and vulnerable as the community in which they were forged. Midtown Social asks us all to come together, to find common ground, love and camaraderie, to fight for our communities, way of life, and rights—and to stand together as one.

GAVIN TUREK

It’s impossible not to become infatuated with disco-pop princess Gavin Turek. The LA Native is always clad in a hand-made 70s fringe dress (she has one in every color) and armed with the best dance moves you’ve ever seen. It’s easy to draw comparisons anywhere from Tina Turner to Beyoncé but really, Gavin is her own force to be reckoned with. Even the most apathetic concert goer leaves her shows revitalized and obsessed. Mayer Hawthorne was the first to take notice, not only inviting Gavin to open his sold out tours early on but also bringing her in as a guest vocalist for his latest project Tuxedo. (You may recognize her as the golden disco goddess gracing the stage with them this past year, everywhere from the legendary Hollywood Bowl to Japan).

2015 was an an unveiling of sorts for Gavin. After releasing her two disco tinged singles via iheartcomix/1nfity, she was named Spin named her Top Artist to Watch and her single "Don’t Fight It” as one of the best tracks of 2015. Late last summer, she released a mini album “You’re Invited,” a collection of sexy electronic tunes with longtime collaborator and electro genius TOKiMONSTA. The girl power duo premiered the new music via a short series of sold out shows around the country and the album quickly became a favorite for tastemakers like NPR, The Fader, KCRW, and Beats1. This spring, Gavin will take her signature moves and voice across the West Coast to reveal new music and a new live show that is not to be missed.
