It's time to spend a memorable Halloween with Dirtybird! Detroit's own Claude Vonstroke is bringing his "Urban Animal Tour" to Royal Oak Music Theatre on Halloween night with opening acts J. Philip, Dru Ruiz and Erno the Inferno! 
This is an event not to be missed!

What started as a fake name and small booking at a friend's birthday party has spiraled into an international DJ career for Claude VonStroke (aka Barclay Crenshaw.) One night in San Francisco after a long night of partying, Barclay and his friends began to make up fake minimal techno DJ names. Just kidding around, Barclay named himself Claude VonStroke. But the name stuck long after the festivities and eventually showed up on a flyer for his friend's birthday party a few weeks later. The rest is history.

Since 2005, both VonStroke and the dirtybird label have released over 20 oddball techno and house EPs. VonStroke's very first record, "Deep Throat," was a major hit of 2005. The success of the single was followed up by 'Who's Afraid of Detroit?' another international hit championed by Richie Hawtin who called it the 'best track of 2006' in DJ magazine. Soon after that Claude released his full-length debut album, 'Beware of the Bird' to outstanding reviews, further establishing him as an original talent in the underground. Since then, he has recorded over 25 remixes for a range of commercial and underground artists from Indy rock group 'The Rapture' to Detroit techno legend Kevin Saunderson.

Claude has also headlined almost every major club, festival and basement after-party in the world from Fabric to Panorama Bar to DEdge. The outdoor dirtybird parties in San Francisco's scenic Golden Gate Park have also become a legendary summer destination point for both locals and international travelers. A VonStroke DJ set is based on meticulous track selection and outrageous risk taking. He always takes time to find the special ass-wiggling cuts that keep the dance-floor percolating.

In an effort to give something back to the community (an influenced by an interview he saw with Mad Mike of Underground Resistance,) Claude unveiled a deeper techno label called 'mothership' A large percentage of the label's proceeds go to a music school for children in Claude's hometown of Detroit, Michigan.
