The Rub at the Great Hall
Continuing my amazing streak of "leaving the house," Friday night I went down to the Great Hall to check out Brooklyn DJs The Rub. I'd seen the trio before, when they opened for Montreal's A-Trak, so I knew that their super fun mash-ups of soul, hip hop and pop were very likely to bring the party. I was further intrigued by the always exciting prospect of a new venue: if you haven't been yet, the Great Hall is a big, dark basement with a raised stage, room for about 300 people and surprisingly clean washrooms. There isn't a proper bar, so unless you like your drink in a plastic cup, stick with beer (Stella and Moosehead were both $5). As for The Rub, they totally delivered. I'm happy to report that a packed dance floor got sweaty for hours and thankfully didn't engage in any ironic posing. Admit it, you were totally busting a move when they dropped Justin's "My Love."
