ELECTRONIC - DANCE | The Black Party


This Sunday, two of Rochester's foremost electronic music collectives will partner in presenting a 12-hour-long dance party. Signal > Noise and Sole Rehab, known for hosting techno and house music gatherings year-round, bring their eclectic club atmosphere to One Nightclub and Ultra Lounge for The Black Party. After sunset, the party will move from the venue's rooftop to inside the club. Despite the title, The Black Party is sans dress code; it's a reference to the transition from Memorial Day's white motif to the colors reintegrated through Labor Day. As is typical of the underground dance scene, dressing to sweat is encouraged. The bill features nine DJs, including Jacq Jill and Keenan Orr from Washington, D.C., Chicagodeep from Chicago, Jarrett Tebbets from Pittsburgh, and LydiaBflo from Buffalo. And both crews will be featuring DJs of their own: Jim Kempkes and Morley of Signal > Noise, and NickL and Tony Labue of Sole Rehab.

The 21+ event is on Sunday, September 2, 2 p.m., at One Nightclub and Ultra Lounge, 1 Ryan Alley. $20-$25. Tickets are available at and at the door.;
