Spank Rock

DJ/promoter Franki Chan cut his teeth in Seattle, booking fun, scrappy shows at the Graceland (now El Corazon) and debauched afterparties at the infamous Egg Room. He’s since relocated to LA, started the club night Check Yo Ponytail, and now that night comes to Seattle as a tour featuring four disparate high-profile party monsters. There’s Pictureplane’s noisy, lo-fi rave pop manifestos, Big Freedia’s queered-up New Orleans bounce music, the Death Set’s sneering boombox cassette punk rock (and flippantly destructive live show), and the smart-mouthed party rap of Spank Rock, back after several years of relative silence with new album Everything is Boring and Everyone is a Fucking Liar. Whatever your dancing agenda—slam, booty, or ironic liquid energy ball—Check Yo Ponytail provides. ERIC GRANDY
