One band that we at omgblog.com are keeping our gorgeous gay eyes transfixed on is Deep Red, a new project formed by Hercules & Love Affair’s hard-working vocalist Nomi Ruiz, bassist Andrew Raposo and keyboardist Morgan Wiley. The trio joined forces while on tour with Hercules last year and are currently in the studio recording an album that promises to unite their collective pop, dance and R&B influences. They are performing in New York at Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker St.) next Thursday, January 22. DFA’s Pat Mahoney will also be DJing, and disco band Midnight Magic is opening.
If you can’t make it to the show, have a listen to their slinky new track “Fun Girl” below. Nomi fans should also watch out for her Borough Gypsy EP, which is due out this year and will feature a duet with underground rapper Ill Bill.

Hot underground electro act Fritz Helder and the Phantoms will be playing a sold-out show at the Highline Ballroom in New York tomorrow night (Oct. 28) along with Lady Gaga, Semi Precious Weapons, and Cazwell. Try to get in if you can, you won’t want to miss their New York debut. To twist Lady Gaga’s famous words just a bit, “Fritz Helder and the Phantoms are the New York pop underground.”
Speaking of Gags, she has a new video out for her song “Poker Face,” which features some beautiful Great Danes, shirtless man candy, and of course pelvic thrusts. You can watch it after the jump.

Matt Wolf’s documentary Wild Combination: A Portrait of Arthur Russell opens today at New York’s IFC Center (6th Avenue and Bleecker St.). I saw it in Toronto a few months ago and was totally moved. It’s thoughtful, insightful, respectful of its subject, and fully captures and describes certain pieces of Arthur Russell’s life and musical career. Go see it before it closes on Tuesday.
Watch the trailer for Wild Combination after the jump.
