MEN Plus DJ set by JD Samson / Le Tigre

Club Brenda presents MEN Plus DJ set by JD Samson / Le Tigre
MEN - JD SAMSON / Le Tigre

MEN is a Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective that focuses on the energy of live performance and radical potential of dance music. MEN speaks to issues such as wartime economies, sexual compromise, and demanding liberties through lyrical content and an exciting stage show. The group began in 2007 as the DJ/production/remix team of LE TIGRE members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman. When the duo began to write new songs, it made sense to merge their efforts with JD’s other new project HIRSUTE. JD and Hirsute members Michael O’Neill (Princess, Ladybug Transistor) and Ginger Brooks Takahashi (LTTR, The Ballet) now comprise the core of MEN, with Johanna and artist Emily Roysdon contributing as writers, consultants, and producers.

Tickets available from Piccadilly Records and online:

  • The Le Tigre member embarks on her new project for more disjointed synthy party jams.

    As an unplanned result of DJ duo/remix/production team of electro-punk band Le Tigre’s JD Samson and Johanna Fateman and Samson’s side project with Emily Roysdon, Michael O’Neill, and Ginger Brooks Takahashi called ‘Hirsute’ merging, MEN became the band’s live structure as it is today: two guitars, programmed drums, synth and vocals. The Brooklyn-based band and art/performance collective’s songs are poppy, dancey, punk, psychedelic jams – such as debut single “Credit Card Babies” on Trouble Records, and second single “Off Our Backs” on IAMSOUND.
