Rong Music label founder and MoMA PS1 Warm Up curator DJ Spun and Air Texture's Escape Art take on the Bad Room.

Be Yourself: Danny Tenaglia + Anthony Parasole + DJ Spinna + Frankie Feliciano
Celebrate Independence Day with some world-class house and techno at Output!

Tenaglia is a veteran in the electronic music scene, and a man who can swing between tough-as-nails prog-tech and sentimental Garage classics in the blink of an eye. Parasole splits his time between Brooklyn and Berlin, where he has a long-running residency at one of the world's greatest techno clubs, Berghain. Wonderwax's DJ Spinna and Ricanstruction's Frankie Feliciano take over the Panther Room for a well-rounded night of techno fireworks!
