Music in New York

    27 Oct

    The Bell House, 7th Street, Brooklyn, NY, United States

    October 27, 2016

    Soft Cell’s pioneering 1981 cover of the Northern Soul classic, “Tainted Love,” is the inspiration for this awesome 80s dance party. Building on a solid foundation of New Wave, we’ll dig deeper into the catalog of massive hits and overlooked misses from the late 70s through the early 90s – pivotal years in musical history that blurred the lines between Analog and Digital, Disco and Synthpop, Funk and Hip-Hop. A time when Alternative was called Post-Punk, Indie actually meant independent, and Throbbing Gristle’s “Hot on the Heels of Love” surely could have been alongside Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” on the charts…with today’s perspective. Other passions include CBGB-era New York, Batcave-era London – Punk Rock, Glam Rock, Kraut Rock, Girl Rock, Dad Rock, Rockabilly, Ska, Machine Soul, Blue-Eyed Soul, Darkwave, Coldwave – plus some guilty pleasures in the (strictly) Old-School Rap department.

    Tainted Love happens the one Thursday every month at The Bell House, 149 7th St, Brooklyn. Hosted by DJ Jane Elizabeth (Tesco USA, Stylus NYC, Breakfast Club Philly 2010-2015).

    10pm, 21+, Free

    MORE ABOUT ISA:
    The granddaughter of famed Cuban vocalist and actress Isaura Mendoza, Isa (born Isa Marina Lopez) is an extraordinarily talented Bronx-born singer, songwriter, and model who has earned rightful comparisons to Alicia Keys, Selena, and Aaliyah. Isa’s music is reflective of her multi-faceted personality, soulful roots, edgy exterior, and overpowering vocal ability (she’s a trained Dramatic Soprano with a range spanning from D3 to D6).

    Inspired by the legendary Maria Callas’ performance in Puccini’s Tosca, Isa, at the age of 14, enrolled at The Marianela Sanchez School of Music in the Dominican Republic, where she was classically trained and mentored by celebrated Lyric Soprano, Marianela Sanchez.

    Her debut EP Montage takes on contemporary pop music. After graduating college Isa joined forces with a local production team for the hit “Higher.” Now training with New York Vocal Coaching director David McCall, Isa is prepping the release of her sophomore project ‘Mirrors’ Volume I.
