A bigger and livelier vibe for surya dub this month than last month. The sound was a BIT better in the upstairs room. I can't believe they get noise complaints. It's the Tenderloin, don't the neighbors have other things to worry about?
I was quite impressed with the guest of honor downstairs: breakbeat Buddha. I kept thinking it was going to turn into standard/predictable breaks, and then it would go all glitchy and wobbly and weird and bouncy.
The crowd was bigger than last month (no horrible rainstorm this time). I think I detected a change in the character.. it seeed a bit more.. indie... kinda.. how can I say it... kinda pitchforkish. Big up the Blackdown for a nice write-up (scroll to the end).
I played after BBB and got a bit silly - but it's nice to be able to play "where my weaves at" mixed with dubstep and the baltimore remix of Yo Majesty. Kid K threw down some classic ragga jungle and ting and then the night was DONE.
