Breakfast Club 2016 facebook banner

Here we go again! For the 5th year in a row, Shameless is continuing our tradition of throwing a New Years DAY party and it’ll once again take place on our favorite rooftop rain or shine. Two rooms of music to start 2016 off right.

THE BREAKFAST CLUB
The Monkey Loft, Seattle
New Years DAY – January 1st 2016
4a-4p, 21+,

Hosted by Bubbles (Listed, SF)

With special guest…

***THREE (Hallucienda)***
Born and raised in a musical home in Pittsburgh, Christopher Milo then moved south where musical experiences at the roller skating rink gave birth to DJ Three steering him on a path to become a pioneer of the fertile Florida rave scene of the 90’s before rising up and relocating to New York City in the 00’s where he’s since held residencies at institutions like NYC’s Twilo, the famed Robots parties at Cielo and now at Output in Brooklyn all the while being a global regular at underground mainstays from Japan’s Labyrinth Festival and Get Lost to fabric in London and Club Eleven in Tokyo. He’s known and loved known the world over for his eclectic underground musical stylings both as a DJ, label head and artist having been involved in beloved U.S. imprints Hallucination Recordings, Hallucination Limited and now Hallucienda while at the same time having produced underground staples like the Three A.M. Burning Spear remix of Rabbit In The Moon – Out Of Body Experience in the 90’s and the perennial underground classic Second Hand Satellites – Multiple Mirrors E.P. in the the early 00’s. His stylistic range made him the perfect choice to curate and mix the “Laterna Magika” DJ mix portion this summers Visionquest Ultraviolet 1 compilation on which he draws upon the labels vinyl only material and the more hidden gems lurking in Visionquest’s own diverse catalog. Visionquest Ultraviolet 1 was released in late June and Three’s “Laterna Magika” mix is receiving rave reviews from Mixmag (Comp Of The Month honors), XLRR, Data Transmission, Ibiza Voice, RA, but, most importantly from you —- the dancers and music lovers —- setting the tone for even more adventurous DJ sets this fall and winter.

Dave Matthews’ and Vitamin Dee’s Breakfast Club New Year’s 2015 photos!

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

Dave and Dee

As usual, our longtime friends and collaborators Dave Matthews (no relation to the other celebrity) and Vitamin Dee took some pretty shamelessly awesome pictures at this year’s Breakfast Club.

Dave’s pictures are here! Check them out on Facebook and share with other breakfast clubbers and friends!

Dee’s pictures should be up soon, and we will edit this blog post when they are!

Don’t forget to support our other upcoming parties, Shameless Hijinks at the Monkey Loft with Mozaic on 01/23, and our 12th annual My Bloody Valentine is Shameless, at Kremwerk on 01/13, featuring an extended 3-hour set by the Black Madonna!

Shamelessly Bringing the Winter Heat

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Breakfast Club

It’s a veritable Winter Wonderland of shows and fun times over here at Shameless HQ, and our crew of promoters, DJs, supporters and elven friends is working hard to bring the heat to the coldest months. We have three amazing shows planned between December and February, along with our new series of Shameless Audio podcasts and prep for future releases.

Up first is The Breakfast Club, our fourth annual New Year’s Day ritual at the Monkey Loft that starts at 5am and goes all day long. TBC has become a Seattle staple over the last few years, and our special edition during Decibel Festival weekend was the biggest and best yet. We expect New Year’s Day to be even crazier, particularly with dirtybird stalwart and Anabatic label boss Worthy at the helm of two rooms of total madness. As usual, we’ll have a solid selection of the Northwest’s best and brightest performers. Come early and stay late!

Up next is Shameless Hijinks at the Monkey Loft on January 23rd. We are diving back into clubland with a series of occasional one-offs, reminiscent of our crazy parties back in the day and our four-year stint with the Shameless Social at Electric Tea Garden. Our first edition will be headlined by our old pal Mozaic from SF. He is by far one of our favorite DJs out there and crosses that gamut from deep and funky to psychedelic and left field. Shameless residents will be supporting proper.

Finally, we have the 12th annual My Bloody Valentine is Shameless on Friday, February 13th. We have hosted the party at a new space every year, and this time we are honored to be doing it at Seattle’s favorite new underground digs, Kremwerk. This is our flagship costume party and a legendary Seattle institution for good times and outright shenanigans. We will be announcing our lineup and all the other juicy details soon. Prepare to be unprepared.

We’re also cooking up all sorts of good stuff for our new record label, Shameless Audio, with a fresh new podcast featuring Christian Martin’s 3-hour headlining set from the Decibel Festival Breakfast Club. This follows up on Joe Bellingham’s premier podcast, both of which should be in heavy rotation. We’ll feature other podcasts from Shameless producers and DJs in the coming months. Also be on the lookout for new releases on Shameless audio (and release parties, of course) early next year. 2015 is gonna be a big one.

Happy holidays from everyone at Shameless HQ! Keep it weird for us!

Christian Martin Pic TBC

Our good friends Dave Matthews and Vitamin Dee both did an incredible job documenting the madness that was the Decibel weekend edition of the Breakfast Club. We thought a few weeks before the New Year’s Day Breakfast Club would be the perfect opportunity to share them with you. Enjoy!

Dave’s pictures are here

Shameless deck

(click the picture to check out The Breakfast Club!)

Join Shameless at the Monkey Loft on Thursday, September 25th and Sunday, September 28th as we wrap up two crazy months of buildup towards Decibel Festival weekend, the Breakfast Club, and the Beatport release of our latest track, Luke Mandala’s “Bacon Jam” (with a remix by Dirtybird’s Christian Martin)!

For the last eight weeks, the Monkey Loft has hosted Shameless’ outrageously awesome “Deck’d Out” Thursday happy hour, which we’ve been treating as an extended test run of deck party vibes. Add in the Monkey Loft’s great Wednesday happy hour and some amazing Sunday daytime parties hosted by some of Seattle’s best promoters, and you’ve got yourself a hot summer affair to remember!

For Shameless, all of the hard work and fun peaks next week with the Decibel edition of Deck’d Out on Thursday, the Breakfast Club on Sunday, and the Beatport release on Monday! Join us in welcoming Tara Brooks for Deck’d Out and Christian Martin, Pezzner, Luke Mandala, Codebase and a whole host of the Northwest’s best DJs for The Breakfast Club, our day rave tradition! Help us celebrate our biggest week in a long time and our biggest Shameless Audio release to date.

As always, Deck’d Out is totally free! Presale tickets to the Breakfast Club are likely to be sold out by the time you read this, but we will have tickets available at the door. We also have all sorts of Shameless swag and some great musical and non-musical surprises in store. Come early and often! And thanks for supporting Shameless, the Monkey Loft, Decibel and all of the great Seattle crews holding it down all summer long. We all love you!

Who’s going to get them first?! They aren’t going to last long. However once the earlybird tickets sell out we’ll still have presales available so you can secure your spot in our 12 hour marathon day party.

So now that you know we’re live, go grab those tickets so you can secure your spot on Sunday during Decibel Festival weekend.

Beats, Booze, Bacon and The Breakfast Club!

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

Heheheheheh

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!
