Paparazzi use backdoor — no exceptions.
On December 31, for a fifth straight year, Bob Nastanovich and I will help celebrate New Year's Eve by playing records on Fourth Street. We'll be back at Vaudeville Mews, but it won't just be us. The classic lineup of Ames-formed psych-pop heroes the Poison Control Center will return for its first live performance in recent memory, joined by current local faves Karen Meat and Quick Piss. I'm excited.

OK, this is partly a long way of saying Bob, Whitney Nastanovich and I DJ'd last month and I keep forgetting to post anything about it. There were some technical difficulties so I didn't squeeze in as many records as usual; then again, leading with an 8-and-a-half–minute Swedish jazz cover of the synth duo Suicide may have had something to do with it. On NYE I'll see if I can once again keep track of what Bob is playing, because his picks are always more interesting to me than mine.

All that said, for now, here's my November 14 setlist, which was interspersed with great songs from Bob and Whitney — thank you again to the Red Monk and the Royal Mile for hosting us, to all our local friends who came and danced, and to Jason Narducy and his out-of-town band Split Single for stopping by after their set:
