Battle Hymn rose from the ashes last month with a pair of all-nighters in its original Flash Factory home, and the service presses on this Friday with an explosive evening featuring Honey Dijon and The Carry Nation.
Having been on a hiatus–along with Flash Factory itself–since this past summer, Battle Hymn is in the midst of a six-week return featuring some of the artists that defined its original run. The queer party is the church-themed brainchild of promoter Ladyfag, routinely attracting out some of the city’s most vibrant and glammed-out clubbers. This week’s bash sees original party residents Honey Dijon and The Carry Nation joining forces for what’s sure to be an unforgettable night.
With uproarious sets that channel the spirits of New York, Chicago, Berlin, and beyond, Honey Dijon has achieved near-superstardom on the underground house circuit for her frenetic mixing style. There’s no better time to catch her, either, as she’s fresh off a particularly noteworthy 2017 that included the release of her debut album The Best of Both Worlds on Classic Music Company and a turn behind the decks of BBC Radio 1’s hallowed Essential Mix. Expect techno, house, disco, and just about everything in between.
Fresh off a headlining set at last week’s Battle Hymn, The Carry Nation will take on opening duties this Friday. The New York-based pair–comprised of Nita Aviance and Will Automagic–hit a production heater last year with cuts like “As If” and “The Queens,” and the duo is just as fiery behind the decks as they are in the studio. Undeniably fresh with roots in the New York’s rich house history, the pair’s bouncy sound is primed to fill the floor from the moment the doors open.
