The Triple Door's Musicquarium Lounge will host two new monthly DJ nights starting July 15 at around 6 pm with James Grindle of Knightriders. Back to Ours debuts that night (and will happen every second Wednesday), with the concept being local selectors spinning the sort of records (vinyl only, please) that they typically don't play at club gigs. Jeff "Lusine" McIlwain will spin a rare set Aug. 26.
The other new monthly is called 125; it will focus on local and international producers and DJs busting out tracks that don't exceed 125 bpm. This event launches July 29 and will happen every fourth Wednesday. DJs Panty Control and Ctrl_Alt_Delete (both with Sweatbox) kick off this series.

Back to Ours (second Wed/mo.) showcases the upper crust of Seattle Dj's and tastemakers in a rare opportunity to hear what they listen to when they aren't rockin the club! Deep-sea crate diving will be the name of the game and genre is no obstacle: rare groove, soul, classic electronic, new-wave, hip-hop, ambient, rock, pop and just about anything in between. The fun begins July 15th.
125 (fourth Wed/mo.) is built on the premise that mid-tempo electronic music leads a vagabond existence in Seattle, without a shelter to call home. Thus, 125 is committed to furnishing a permanent nest to sophisticated electronic textures that you won't find at regular local club events. The west coast is fertile ground for slower electronic music, with Seattle being the home for many internationally recognized mid-tempo producers, and still we have yet to see consistent events showcasing these sounds. The wait is over July 29th.
Each evening dovetails with our weekly specials already in place:
Happy Hour Food Specials ($3-5) from 9pm-12am.
The New Deal: 33% off your bar tab from 9 to close, Monday-Thursday.
July 15th: Back to Ours launch with Grindle (knightriders)
July 29th: 125 launch party with Panty Control and Ctrl Alt Delete (sweatbox)
August 26th: Jeff McIlwain AKA Lusine (ghostly int’l)
Exclusive DJ set!
