‘Just Ups’ and ‘Still Ups’ will once again get together to celebrate the last day of the Decibel Festival Monkey style with this 12 hour annual event. Two rooms of sound, the best vibe Seattle has to offer and now PART OF THE DECIBEL FESTIVAL PASS!

This year Shameless and Decibel are teaming up to bring back ‘The Breakfast Club – Decibel Edition’ for the second year in a row.

The Breakfast Club will feature two stages of music from 4:00am-4:00pm on Sunday, September 27th (aka late Saturday night/Sunday morning & afternoon). BAR OPENS AT 6am. In addition to the indoor club, The Breakfast Club will also be host a stage on Monkey Loft’s PHENOMENAL rooftop deck with gorgeous views of the city. KV2 Sound by Starborne.

The Stranger Suggests “Bullshit-Free Techno & House”

Tuesday, June 24th, 2014


We’re of course honored to have our little record release party featured in The Stranger’s coveted “Suggests” section. Many thanks for the local publication for the love. Hope to see you out this Friday June 27th!

Read on or click here to check it out…

What: House music that really means it and nothing else
Where: Kremwerk
Who suggests it: Emily Nokes
Why: Since our resident electronic-music expert Dave Segal is on vacation, I thought I would step into his vegan running shoes for the week and get my zeros and ones on. I remember he once described Deepchild as “bullshit-free techno and house,” and though my ears are not expert in this genre, the glowing warm space sounds oozing through a shimmering matrix of rhythm do, indeed, seem free of bullshit. Tonight celebrates the release of Seattle producer Codebase’s Down for the Count (on local label Shameless Audio), on which Deepchild, Distal, Aur0ra, and Adlib are featured. Plus, doesn’t Kremwerk seem neat? (Kremwerk, 1809 Minor Ave,, 9 pm, 21+)

Video from ETG Closing Party!

Sunday, January 12th, 2014

The Shameless Social on November 23rd, 2013, was both the end of an era and a party for the record books. We spent over twelve hours saluting the legendary Electric Tea Garden, the longest lasting underground venue in Seattle dance music history. It was by far the most packed, crazy event in ETG’s almost 20 year history and a great send-up featuring friends old and new. The party started out strong and the dance floor was packed well before 11pm. It ended with bittersweet stories, smiles and tears from everyone in Shameless and ETG’s truly committed staff. Local videographer Cameron Jessup was able to capture some great footage of the peak hours at the event, including MC Anton Bomb performing over Adlib, our surprise impromptu marching band performance, and a glimpse of the mighty Donald Glaude, our surprise headliner for the night. Check it out!

Special thanks to Donald Glaude, Luke Mandala, Bad Pioneer and Nark for joining us on the decks, to ETG’s amazing staff and crew for all the years of hard work and, last but not least, to all the partiers and dancers out there who have supported both ETG and Shameless for so long. We love each and every one of you.

Beats, Booze, Bacon and The Breakfast Club!

Thursday, December 27th, 2012


This is Shameless HQ writing to remind all you Seattle freaks of where you should be spending your New Year’s Day. Whether you rest all of New Year’s Eve, get way too wasted before midnight and pass out in a gutter, party with Innerflight ’til the breaka-breaka dawn or are STILL UP from last weekend’s Shameless “Social” monthly, you would do yourself a favor by stumbling on over to the Electric Tea Garden, getting yourself an ice cold beverage, writing/speaking run-on sentences, and listening to some hot as hell dance music at about 6am until the wee hours of the afternoon on New Year’s Day. That’s right, we’re presenting another edition of our now infamous Breakfast Club party, featuring food, booze and two areas of music insanity from 6am-4pm.

For those of you were there last year, this should be a no-brainer. For those of you who weren’t, you’ll just have to come see if all the rumors are true. Will there be more phenomenal sets by some of Seattle’s favorite dance music legends? Definitely! Will there be incredibly awesome performance art? You betcha!… although this time it will be by Gaydolf and the Golden Showers, as Tons of F***ing Sequins are now signed to a major label and way out of our league… Will a man strangely resembling Zach Galifinakis blow us all away with his unique and only slightly creepy brand of awesomeness? Hopefully! Will Principal Vernon show up? Probably not. Will there be a metric shit-ton of bacon? Probably yes. Will there be at least some bacon? MOST DEFINITELY! Will there be booze-a-plenty? YES! It will be flowing like Manna from heaven (or, at least, from ETG’s exceptionally competent and tolerant bar staff)!!! Will Adlib be playing another exceptionally rad closing set? No… alas, he can’t make it, as he will be on a plane to Hawaii… but that means you guys all just have to get twice as stupid for him!

We guess at some point we should stop writing and share the details. Well, for those of you still around, here they are!

Thanks to everyone who made it out to our anniversary/vday party last month.  Because of you we raised just over $2,000 for Lifelong AIDS Alliance and the Space Virgins!

The energy created while collaborating with so many people in a fun house party setting was incredible.  We’ll see you all next year for our BIG ten year anniversary.

Shame off! Game on!
