Torontoist has two bloodshot eyes and two sore feet after last night’s Juan Mclean-James Murphy “secret” show. While it’s unclear if Juan Mclean goes by his album-name, The Juan Mclean, when DJing, it is clear that he has the shiniest head on the DFA Label.
At the Batcave-like venue of the Queenshead Pub, it was two-dollar cover, three-dollar Mill Streets, dance music and dancing. The Mclean dropped his own record, and late in the night Murphy appeared to have lost his edge by cutting the music – but instead used the silence to yell out the ‘last call.’ Daft Punk played at his house, and now Murphy (hello LCD Soundsystem) and The Juan are playing at the Kool Haus. Tonight, $25.
