Red Fridays: Andrew Butler

'

Editorial Review

Hercules and Love Affair's self-titled 2008 album demonstrates a devotion to a wide spectrum of classic house and disco music, though the original tunes by the group's Andrew Butler are also salted with the electro and funk of more recent decades. Tonight at U Street Music Hall's Red Fridays, Butler is going to dig into the catalogs of the artists who influenced his wildly popular project, from Frankie Knuckles and Larry Levan to Gorgio Moroder. (And, if you're lucky, he might drop a song or two from the finished-but-unreleased second Hercules album.) There's a $10 cover, and doors open at 10, but get there early -- it's going to be slammed.
