Hot Mass 2 Year Anniversary Party
Gone were the days of promiscuous crowds with the raucous, unbridled energy of a once flourishing underground rave scene in the Steel City. That is, until Hot Mass came along. Since its inception in 2012, Hot Mass parties have gained worldwide recognition for their overall quality, including the superior talent, a nostalgic ambiance, and a dedicated crowd with a welcoming nature and true appreciation for the music. On Saturday, Dec. 13, Hot Mass celebrates its two year anniversary in Pittsburgh; with a solid lineup on board, it’s sure to go down in history.
German house DJ, Johannes Paluka, more commonly known as Iron Curtis at the turntables, will grace Hot Mass with his presence and signature sound, developed from a formula of acidic melodies inspired by elements of Chicago, Detroit and Hamburg (Germany). Though he dabbles in reduced equilibrium, Iron Curtis is famously known for intertwining deep house with soulful techno in a disturbingly enchanting manner. Iron Curtis makes up one half of Achterbahn D’Amour, but his latest trip to the U.S. is due to the release of his most recent solo record, titled Care. Locals Jose Hamilton and Tom Brown will be joining Iron Curtis for opening and closing support.
With two years under their belts and an established afterhours dance event, Hot Mass curators promise they’re just getting warmed up and vow to keep delivering the funk for years to come. Whether you’re an avid Hot Mass attendee or a newbie to the scene, house music worshipers and techno connoisseurs alike won’t want to miss out.
The party kicks off just before midnight. Cover is $15 with an option to BYOB.
