DJ Sovietpanda's Too Much Love to end seven-year run in February

Underground dance music in the Twin Cities is losing a titan night as Too Much Love is ending. An event inspired by an LCD Soundsystem song, DJ Sovietpanda's weekly parties pushed genre boundaries and thrilled the psyches of its attendees for the past seven years. "It's time to move on," he says in a statement.

On February 1, this run of Saturdays at First Avenue will wrap up one chapter and begin another. Sovietpanda, a.k.a. Peter Lansky, has already announced his next venture, a name change, and when the next event will occur.

After February 1's final Too Much Love at First Avenue's Record Room, the TML acronym will live on as Lansky's new DJ name.

The newly christened TML will team up with James Frickle (WAK LYF) to launch their new venture, REAL FUN, on February 8. "We're bringing the same genre-bending sounds of Too Much Love and Wak Lyf, but with a fresh take on booking and sequencing, and new collaborations for design, video, and more," Lansky states. "We're really excited to build a new spot that people can count on every weekend for sick music and a sick party."

As more details emerge for REAL FUN, Gimme Noise will post them.

The Last Too Much Love. 18+, $3, 10 p.m., Saturday, February 1, at the Record Room. RSVP.
