Kiss & Tell, a monthly party at Rose Live Music in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, has been producing unique theme based events for over four years. Each month Kiss & Tell invites well known electronic music DJs eager to play a different kind of set, filled with music outside of the genres they are known for. Our DJs play italo, disco (classics and edits), party jams, electro, house, girl groups, gothypants, new wave, and post punk.

This month the ladies at Kiss & Tell inviting you to a magical journey to the secret 1980s discothèques of Moscow.

Dress to impress in your favorite Eastern European and Soviet style: Sultry Spies, Manly Military, 80s Euro Trash, Black & Red, Sexy Russian Looks, Royals Tzars & Tzarinas, Balkan Bombshells...

Kiss & Tell Guest DJ: Mike Huckaby
The main thing you need to know about Mike Huckaby is that he has impeccable taste and the ability to see past petty genre divisions to bring together amazing sets that may cover everything from the deepest house and the darkest techno to classic tracks from 20 years ago that you didn't even realize existed. These skills have landed him endless gigs worldwide at huge clubs, and make him an ideal DJ for educated dancefloor. Although his talents as a DJ are well documented, do not forget that he is also a very accomplished producer of dub techno and deep house, with tracks on his own Deep Transportation and S Y N T H labels, as well as the Berlin-based Cache imprint. When Huck was in town to at the Unsound Festival in February, we asked him to pack a bag of disco and classic dance music to play a surprise set at the Kiss & Tell Unsound Closing Party. Huck not only played one of the best sets of the festival, but also one of the best DJ sets we've ever heard. We couldn't resist having him back, and this time he brought a reel to reel deck and a bunch of exclusive disco edits just for this party.

Kiss & Tell Guest DJ: Jeremy Berman
If a cat and a robot had some sort of freckled offspring, it would be Jeremy; never predictable, always on point. Before moving to New York, Jeremy helped pushed the envelope of the Atlanta nightlife, curating some of the city’s most debauched nights with first-ever ATL performances from acts like James Murphy, Damian Lazarus and M.A.N.D.Y. Now a slave to NYC and fresh off a successful string of backroom LES parties The Wet Set, Jeremy has hosted and played alongside downtown favorites Lee Douglas, Mike Servito, James Friedman, My Cousin Roy, Eamon Harkin and more. His own productions are heating up as well: Jeremy’s productions have quickly disseminated among the online elites, garnering nods from legends like I-f and Alden Tyrell. When not building synths and digging through record piles at The Thing, Jeremy writes for the music store/blog:

Kiss & Tell Resident DJ: Bethany Benzur is our resident disco encyclopedia and vinyl purist from Georgia. Recently emigrating to the Big Apple, Bethany has been ruling the dancefloor at Kiss & Tell parties with her Southern charm. The DJ nerds are regularly awed by her selections, and she joins us each month to warm you up with her mix of raunchy electro, glamorous dark disco, and soulful street funk. She is sometimes joined behind the decks by her husband (and italo disco nerd) Gabe.

Kiss & Tell Hostess, Photographer, Designer: Seze Devres started Kiss & Tell as an extension of her raunchy knitting circle at Trash Bar in Williamsburg on December 7, 2005. At first only a few people showed up to her new party. However with a lot of help, support, and encouragement from her friends the party has become its own little beast. When she is is not dreaming up crazy themes and guests for Kiss & Tell she is a full time artist and designer. Seze's images and designs have graced dozens of galleries, record covers, posters, flyers, magazines, and web sites. She also co-hosts and photographs the guests of The Bunker, a world renowned weekly techno party in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
