Battle of the Bjork after-parties

Posted By on Mon, Sep 17, 2007 at 9:05 PM

Love her or hate her, Bjork is a wildly imaginative artist. (Read her profile in this week's Creative Loafing.) Her fearless creativity seems to have inspired several people in Atlanta, as the city will see no less than four after-parties following her sold-out concert tonight at the Fox Theatre.

The "official" party happens at MJQ and features Diplo, the achingly hip DJ/producer/label owner whose mixes have inspired a generation of would-be party rockers. Diplo will also perform at the Fox Theatre as a backing DJ for Santogold, the Brooklyn group that's opening for Bjork. (According to its MySpace page, Santogold is a mixture of new wave, dub and psychobilly.) No word yet on whether Bjork will actually appear at her "official" after-party.

Then there are the "unofficial" events. Halo Lounge is featuring a "battle" between DJ Applejac and ace turntablist DJ Lord (from Public Enemy). Bazzaar, which is located a few storefronts away from the Fox, will have a "pre-party" and "post-party" featuring DJs Kevin O and Chuck Jones. Finally, Django is hosting a showcase for eclectic soul artist Amanda Ray and experimental musician Eiliyas.

Perhaps in an attempt to entice Bjork fans, Ray compiled a Real Life Top 5 list on why she doesn't fit in Atlanta. The list was published in CL's Sept. 13 issue, and you can read it here. Meanwhile, anyone else who has a Bjork after-party is welcome to mention it in the Comments section.
