So I DJed-- believe it or not, for the first time ever-- on Saturday night at the bar in the alley outside my favorite downtown Des Moines music venue, Vaudeville Mews. The space is actually called the PBR bar, because Pabst Blue Ribbon sponsored its renovation (and my DJing gig, too!). Apparently, the Mews sells the most PBR in all of Iowa, which I guess is a distinction of some sort. Anyway, thank you so much to T.J. Wood, Ladd Askland, and Vaudeville Mews for making this happen, to Bob N. for sharing his turntable (it turned out I only used mine), to the Poison Control Center for not one but two typically amazing sets (something like the 265th and 266th of their "never-ending tour"), and to all my wonderful friends who came out and danced.
Here's the setlist (though please note, a few of these I didn't play in their entirety):
