As always, thanks to the Beachland for inviting me out Saturday night to get the jams and booze flowing before the Mr. Gnome, Ohio Sky, and Nights show in the Ballroom. And while I'm not one to brag, I've gotta say this was one of my stronger sets. I played five(!) artists name dropped by LCD Soundsystem in "I'm Losing My Edge," and "I'm Losing My Edge." How cool is that? About as cool as the section where I went Nick Cave, Nirvana, Obnox, Mos Def, David Bowie, Neu, Television, electric eels, Sonic Youth and L7. That's how cool it was. Scroll down below for the Spotify playlist.
Last night was an interesting nigh at the Beachland. Pop act, Bleachers, had sold out the main room, so the Beachland asked me to throw down some vinyl in the Tavern. It's something I've done many times. I do the jams. The extra bar space gets the venue more money and everyone's happy. Except this show turned out to be a milk & cookies show, if you know what I mean. The first hundred through the door weren't old enough to drive a car, let alone imbibe.
Still, any time I get to play jams in the Tavern is a good time. The lack of boozehounds at the bar had some positives, too. Like, no one came up and requested Red Hot Chili Peppers, and multiple Jawbreaker tracks, and ending the night on Pissed Jeans. Every dj set should end with Pissed Jeans, not just my sets, all of them, by every dj, even the ones that play that thing called EDM. "False Jesii Pt 2" is such a banger, the banger to end all bangers.
As always, thanks to the Beachland Ballroom and Tavern for having me over to jam during Sunday brunch, and thanks to everyone who stopped by and said hi. This is the text version of every record I laid down, at the bottom of this post, you'll find a Spotify playlist of most everything.
