From Paradise Garage and Studio 54 in the 1970s to Limelight and Sound Factory in the 1990s, and beyond, nobody gets down like NYC. Whether dingy underground parties or high-end mega clubs are your thing, there’s never been an excuse not to shake your groove thing in the Big Apple. One reason to celebrate this December 4 is when UK rave masters Orbital pop into town for an unforgettable night at Brooklyn Steel.
Orbital – Tiny Foldable Cities
Already blowing people away in the U.K., the N.Y.C. show promises to be a thrilling flashback to the city’s golden era while tapping into its current status as a global dance capital and providing a thrilling hint of what the future holds for dance music and rave culture. The night’s energy will be fueled by Orbital’s amazing discography, from reimagined old school classics like “Chime” to brand new bangers like “P.H.U.K.” “When we play live, the songs have developed and changed over the years,” says Paul Hartnoll in a recent interview. “They’re similar to how they were obviously but there’s nice little changes and additions.”

This is the duo’s first show in the states since 2012 so it’s a very rare opportunity to catch the Hartnoll brothers at their best.
