I changed templates. Partly because the old one was acting very strange. But I'm not wild about the pink here. Hopefully I can get my css wizards in the cizzastle to fix up a better color at least for the links.
Still and all, a small development. Happy new year.
In other news, went to a really good party on Saturday, thrown by the lovely 5lowershoppers. Left too early, saw many many good friends, and heard some fantastic sounds. Big up Eustachian! Serious props to The Stapler (some people listen up and give this man a record deal)! Big up DJ Savage Rhythm! Big up Exillon! Big up Heartworm (the man who, along with the ill-ustrious Aaron Spectre, got me my first gig in NYC)!
I'll write a coherent post on this later -perhaps on the plane to the conference. Suffice, for now, to say that proper warehouse madness, done up right, is good for the soul. A good big sound system and a good smaller sound system (oh, big up Amandroid!), plenty of circusy squattery crusty fabulous peeps, and all my beloved NY transplants holding down the gettin-things-done vibe (big up Jack Clang! Nic Fit! SOUR! ). It warmed my heart to see all the people who made such good stuff happen in NY, all these peeps I've worked with to make stuff happen, still making it happen and I get to live near them again. I sense some good things in the Bay Area coming up.
I also saw Drop The Lime on Friday. the contrast between the gigs was fascinating. A lovely guy, an interesting show. Also saw many peeps, from the other side of the Bay Area electronic music world.
more sound commentary to come.
