Dave P and the folks at Making Time have been going hard all summer, and the next two weekends should prove to be no exception. They’ll serve as the conclusion to their summer of hyper-raging, featuring two extra-special bangers taking place at Voyeur.
The first event goes down this Friday, July 29th from 9 p.m.-3:30 a.m. Performers include pop-rock four-piece Dom, Seattle indie-poppers Craft Spells, and Cali indie-psych newcomers Gardens & Villa. The entire gang of Making Time residents—including Dave P, Sammy Slice, Dave Pak, Mike Z, Joel Flood, Russ Alexander, Steve Vena, Adam Sparkles, Pink Skull (DJ set), and The Broadzilla DJs—will be in attendance as well. Get there early for complimentary PBR, Sparks, and Sailor Jerry rum drinks from 9 p.m.-11 p.m.; if you miss those you can still chow down on free hot dogs all night long. Tickets are $10 and are available in advance here.
The second hyper-rager will take place on Friday, August 5th, from 9 p.m.-3:30 a.m., again at Voyeur. Live guests will include synth-pop project Cold Cave and Canadian new-wave trio Austra. Dave P and the whole Making Time crew will rock the dance floors both on the main floor and in the basement. The same free drink and hot dog deals apply; tickets to this event are $12 in advance and $15 at the door. If you’re looking to rage extra hard and save a few bucks, MT is offering a 2-Day Hyper-Rager Pass for $20, available for purchase online here.
