"Oh, no, I would never claim to be an actual DJ..."
Had another excuse to spin records and type up my best approximation of what I played and post it here! Friday night was the birthday of Patrick Tape Fleming, of local bands the Poison Control Center, Gloom Balloon, and Dickweed, among probably others, and the Vaudeville Mews put together an evening to celebrate. Tony Galloro aka DJ Tone Zone kindly brought (and shared) his turntables, and we both spun at the venue's outdoor "PBR" bar. I DJed the earlier shift, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m., so we could get home before too late for the babysitter. That in mind, I mostly brought a bunch of scrappy indie records I thought Patrick might like, but it turned out my tweeted promise to play "Work It" got around to our friends, so I ended up leaving a lot in the crate and focusing on records to keep a few of 'em dancing. My iPhone notes always get a little sketchy -- I'm gonna blame AutoCorrect -- but I think this is pretty close to what I played. Thanks to Tony, Ladd, Patrick, Joe, John, Clint, Brandon, and everyone who helped! And huge thanks to everyone who came out! I caught awesome sets beforehand by Wolves in the Attic, Pure Gut, and A Quick Piss -- thanks to those guys, too. I guess I'll be DJing a full set again on September 28 so let's hope it's not too cold or rainy or Oktoberfest-y? (Oh also I should mention it was brutally hot this night.)
