The dance floor is primed for Miracles Club—the house music/DJ tag-team featuring Portland's siren of cool, Honey Owens, alongside Rafael Fauria—and it's ready to get painted with the soles of your feet. Their two hot-to-trot 12-inch EPs, including their latest, A New Love, on boutique now-sound imprint Mexican Summer, are easy and sleazy, with Owens' ecstasy-induced vocals wrapped around proto-house beats that come from the Paradise Garage of the future. In fact, it was nice to see this vision realized in the video to "Church Song" where a colorful clash of creative minds, hipster goofballs, day-glo nightstalkers, and sexy fun seekers came together for what could described as an beautifully freaky Art Fag Soul Train (there was even a goat!). If Holocene doesn't look like that at any point tonight (sans the hoofed animals), be it during the Miracles Club DJ set, Soft Metals synth-and-sync swagger, Adam Forkner's new cosmic R&B project Purple N Green, or Ancient Heat's baby-making disco, then Portland isn't ready for an alien abduction of your heart, body, and soul.
