The playfully named Foshizzle Family has done a lot to energize electronic music in Madison since its 2012 inception, pulling together a collective of young DJs, producers, and bookers including DJ Umi, Max Wasinger, and Niki Kitz. They've handily balanced fun and taste, whether throwing parties in the old train cars on West Wash, getting involved in booking the annual Musique Electronique stage at Fete De Marquette, or spinning deep-reaching DJ sets at Tavernakaya and other downtown spots. Foshizzle has also gotten into the habit of throwing a few parties in James Madison Park each spring and summer, and this one is the first of 2019. Expect a fairly low-key outdoor hang, but with the group's DJs drawing on their voracious grasp of house, techno, disco, and funk. The James Madison Park portion of the evening wraps up at 9, but the party moves over to Robinia Courtyard at 10 p.m. and goes until bar time. The event will also serve as a going-away party for Foshizzle member Ted Waldbillig, aka DJ Whodie Guthrie. —Scott Gordon
