Some people have long thought DJs and dance clubs are hastening the death of live music. But can’t they all just get along? That’s the approach of Earthquakes, the monthly live music/dance night at Northside’s Mayday. On the last Saturday of every month, founder Kendall Bruns (and fellow DJ John Hogan) spin a variety of cool dance/Indie tunes and also showcase an original local band (a formula Bruns and others found success with at the old alchemize club). This week, State Song — which is currently finishing work on its debut release for Phratry Records, Dear Hearts & Gentle People — is the live band, kicking things off at 10:30 p.m. Bruns and Hogan start spinning everything from Vampire Weekend to Hall & Oates immediately following the band’s set.
