SATURDAZE Dance Party
Saturday, February 13th 10:00PM
“Sean Watson has an immense following among young-and-hip circles because of his innate skills as a party instigator and near-infallible taste in music. Plus, his weekly sets at such fashionable spots as Crescent Ballroom typically are packed with the PBR brigade, and he’s an occasional performer at Quincy Ross’ secretive see-and-be-seen soirees. Ask the burly and bearded DJ about his revered status in the scene, however, and the ever-affable Watson will shrug it off with one of his trademark belly laughs. “I’m a hipster icon?” he says. “I thought I was toothless, fat, Irish guy who sweats a lot.” That pretty much sums up Watson to a T, concerned more with having a good time during his gigs than with labels. He’s practically a one-man party behind the decks, bouncing his brawny frame around while unapologetically playing whatever tracks suit him, whether its indie song chanteuses like Grimes, old ’90s joints from Stereolab, high-energy club bangers by Swedish House Mafia, or such guilty pleasures as Madeon or Gigamesh. “My philosophy is to just play whatever I like and hope that everyone goes along with it,” he says. Based on all the fist-pumping and excited dancing going on in the crowd, that’s most assuredly the case.” -Phoenix New Times
