Every Tuesday night at The Mermaid this October is Italo Horror Disco, the Halloween-friendly edition of L.A. Industrial’s Italo disco party Dolce Vita. DJ Manuelito and I had the chance to kick off the spooky festivities last night to a killer crowd at the Little Tokyo bar. 

I had a blast playing with Manuelito, who is such an amazing DJ, and catching up with the pals who dropped by the party last night. It pumped me up for this weekend’s gigs. You can catch me on Friday night at Club Underground for Depeche Mode x New Order night and then on Sunday afternoon for Disco Matinee. Both parties are at Grand Star Jazz Club in Chinatown. 

Here’s my set list for Dolce Vita’s Italo Horror Disco at The Mermaid on October 3, 2023.
