The new party goes down at the Echoplex in mid-September.
The DJ duo of JG Wilkes and JD Twitch have built a rabid cult following due to wide-ranging sets encompassing techno, electro, post-punk and other leftfield selections. Though they built their reputation on a long-running residency at Glasgow's Sub Club, the pair have since made a number of official mixes, including last year's Dark Was The Night on Endless Flight. Meanwhile, Twitch's Optimo Music imprint had a dust up with Sony earlier this year. For the LA show, Optimo will be joined by recent New York transplant and Tigersushi boss Joakim.
Optimo and Joakim join Lindstrom the next night in San Francisco—that party, to be held at Mezzanine, is being put on by Restless Nites, the same crew behind the LA show. The Scottish twosome end the quick trip on the 19th at Philadelphia club The Dolphin. Joakim has a couple of dates in New York leading up to the California shows—he's at Output on the 10th and Le Bain on the 11th.

Tickets to Joakim's New York show are available on RA.
