TONIGHT: Live (Online) Listening Party For The Rapture's New Album + Q&A

Party Tiiiiiime! On the Internet! One of our favorite labels, DFA Records, is trying out something new tonight to welcome the awesome dance-punk band The Rapture back into the fold in advance of the September release of their new album, In The Grace of Your Love (that's the cover art above). DFA has already dedicated one of their White Out Sessions to premiering the album's excellent first single "How Deep Is Your Love," and tonight they'll have the dudes in the DFA offices for a full-on album listening party starting at 8:30pm ET!

You can stream the party into your own living room tonight via their UStream channel, and The Rapture will also be hosting a Q&A after the album finishes. You can tweet your burning questions to @itstherapture, @dfarecords, or post on the Facebook event wall either now or during the show.

Based on The Rapture's past awesomeness and the strength of that single, I'm excited to hear what they have in store for us tonight. It'll also be a great way to get ready for Saturday's sold-out show at the Music Hall of Williamsburg - highly recommend you find a way into that, or at least the afterparty at Cameo or Nancy Whang's (LCD Soundsystem) free DJ set up the street. Early 2000s dance music is gonna be alive and well in Brooklyn this weekend, for sure.
