Live: Holy Ghost! and Moby at One Step Beyond

June 08, 2009



One Step Beyond is an anomaly. The party at the Natural History Museum on 79th Street, just beside Central Park, is physically so far removed from where New York City dancing usually takes place that it may as well be outer space. But then, proving its otherness, you walk to the dance floor through a giant, glowing orb. This is an appropriate place for Moby, who headlined the evening with laser techno. People didn't request songs from him, just requests to take their picture with him. Which he kindly did over and over. Preceding him were Holy Ghost!, DFA darlings. Or at least half of Holy Ghost!—Alex was absent, poor Nick holding it down alone. He let things ride easy—a little Chic, a little Class Action made for lot of light stepping across the tethered galaxy.
