Saturday Night at the Getty Center with “Poolside”. 9/15/12

The Getty Center hosted another evening of free music under the stars on Saturday night as part of it’s “Saturday Off The 405” concert series. Angelenos packed the trams to the top of the Getty to enjoy free music by “Poolside” as well as two DJ sets to open and close the program.

Poolside are Los Angeles based duo Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise—their sound is described as “Daytime Disco.” Poolside’s debut single “Do You Believe” was positively received by peers, Todd Terje, Dimitri From Paris, and The Magician, and Dazed & Confused praised the song for its “pop-tinged disco, brimming with optimistic vocals and retro acid synths,”[2] while NME lauded its “supremely casual decadence.”

“Take Me Home,” Poolside’s second single was released in November 2011 and was used as the first song onAeroplane‘s In Flight Entertainment compilation.  Their debut album, “Pacific Standard Time”, was released on July 9th, 2012 on Day & Night Records.

The band played a truncated but fun one hour set before the program closed out with dancing to the tunes of KCRW DJ’s.  Alcohol flowed until about 9 p.m. and most folks were gone by 9:30 p.m.
