Remember those big changes we told y’all to watch out for? This be it. LOOSE JOINTS has moved to Academy Club (4445 Saint-Laurent, Mtl), and will proceed as a Friday monthly. It all kicks off this Friday, August 31 as we welcome New York’s own JEFFREY SFIRE (Ghostly International), a stellar DJ and gentle lover whose beard is said to possess curative powers.
Jeff’s infatuation with underground dance music and illegal warehouse parties began at the tender age of 15 – though visibly underage, he played out at parties, clubs and sleazy gay afterhours, usually entering covertly through back doors or with a fake ID.
At 18, he moved to Chicago and was subsequently exposed to a whole other side of dance music history, including the Italo Disco and High Energy sounds of the ‘80s. He spent afternoons digging through record stores, meeting retired DJs and developing his refined musical palette.
His residencies are numerous, and is a regular in LA, Detroit, Chicago, and New York. Expect a finely-tuned selection of Italo Disco, ‘80s High Energy, New Disco and Electro.
Also on deck is Montreal’s own CASSO (Cybernetic Broadcasting System), a tall drink of water who knows more about Montreal disco than…well, just about anyone that we can think of. His DJ sets – a mix of vintage electronic disco and rare dance classics – are a trainspotter’s paradise, so buckle up and set a course for romance.

CASSO (Cybernetic Broadcasting System, Montreal)
