After a LONG five month hiatus, Macho City returns to the R&R to celebrate three years of dance floor debauchery. Shine up those chaps and dust off the poppers.
A brief histroy: Three years in, Macho City has gained momentum and a following due in large part to its devotion and celebration of all things Disco. Created by Mike Trombley and debuting in Philadelphia, Macho City (and Mike) soon relocated to Detroit where Scott Zacharias was added to the resident roster. The plan was to create a unique party that harked back to the heady days of legendary clubs like The Music Box and Paradise Garage while always looking toward the future. This formula proved successful and led to capacity crowds at Macho City’s headquarters, the R&R Saloon.
Mike and Scott, with their arsenal of dance (un)classics, began to attract a keen mix of disco heads, art students, club kids and leather daddies alike. Macho City provides a space where clubbers from all walks of life feel welcome. The party’s focus is on the music and its unifying power.
Over the past three years, Macho City has been fortunate enough to host some of the best international DJ talent. Past guests have included Beppe Loda (Italy/Typhoon), Azari & III (Toronto/Permanent Vacation), Ron Morelli (NYC/L.I.E.S.), Runaway (NYC/DFA), Legowelt (Netherlands/Clone, Creme), Nancy Fortune (France/Clone Records), Black Devil Disco Club (France/Rephlex Records), BMG (Ectomorph/IT), and Gay Marvine (Bath House Etiquette).
Macho City has cemented its reputation as one of the more inimitable underground party’s in Detroit. Make your way to the R&R Saloon on Saturday, April 28th to tap the aural traditions and tough love of Detroit’s own seedy back alleys.
