TAKE TIME TO FIGURE IT OUT

Bob has let me play records on his DJ nights a couple of times recently, so why not do that thing where I actually type down, semi-promptly, what I played? Was in a weird mood on Saturday—perhaps best described as "I am the parent of a preschooler and midnight is late for me," so late I couldn't remember which artist's T-shirt I was wearing when asked—but had the usual blast. Thank you to my friends who made it out! This one was an hour-long solo set and what I tried to play is below.

Plus, belatedly posting what I played the last time Bob had me out, when I was also in a weird mood, perhaps best described as "DJing like a week after the election." For that one, CEO's version of "Halo" is missing from Spotify.

Hope these are of some use to somebody, because I had a ton of fun sharing them at the Red Monk.
