Soulcialism’s monthly installment of ’60s/Motown and Northern Soul comes early in September, with some special bonus features!

First off, this time around your resident deejays from the Soulcialist Party Workers, Johnno and Juddy, will be joined behind the decks for a cameo appearance by Des Parker and Paul Cross, two Northern Soul scene stalwarts from the UK. These guys will bring a li’l taste of what the UK 60s rare-soul scene is dancing to these days, but more than that, they’re going to drink bottled beer by the gallon and have y’all show them a luvly time!

Secondly, as always, there’s NO COVER CHARGE for Soulcialism at the Iggle. However, this time around we’ll be collecting voluntary donations at the door, with all proceeds from the evening going to charities such as WWOZ Radio, the Tipitina’s Foundation and the N.O. Musician’s Clinic set up specifically to help New Orleans music people rendered homeless, workless and worse by hurricane Katrina. In addition, for a li’l bit more of a donation, you can pick up a special CD-r comp of New Orleans- and Gulf Coast-based northern soul tracks and related sounds – pretty sweet, eh?

But most importantly, it’s time to come out and DANCE and DRINK and FALL OVER to big ole hits by STEVIE WONDER, JACKIE WILSON, CURTIS MAYFIELD, THE DELLS, the JACKSONS, FELICE TAYLOR, WAYNE GIBSON, and tons of other soul favorites – with the odd li’l lick of funk and R&B for good measure!!

Pass the word along to your friends, enemies, bartenders… we gon’ have a good time. Mmm. Hmm.
