Eight Gigs: Cherokee

Sat., June 13, 4 p.m., MARRS building, no cover

Summer Second Saturdays are officially kicked up a notch: the This Midtown summer block party series returns Saturday and runs through September. The first edition features locals Exquisite Corps, Mr. Erik James and DJ Epik, plus one hell of a headliner. One of Luxembourg's hottest young electronic dance music producers, Cherokee, is at the forefront of the latest “French Touch” wave. His brand of house is a synthy, upbeat nu-disco that pairs perfectly with a sun-bleached summer. Get hyped via his latest single “Teenage Fantasy”—a sweet, dreamy, smile-inducing track—and get ready to dance and dance until you can't dance no more. 1050 20th Street, https://soundcloud.com/cherokee-official.
