    Default Gig Stories

    I decided to put this up because I needed a way to talk about how I DJed my first gig tonight without saying "I DJed tonight for the first time WOOOOO!!!". But yeah, it was excellent.

    Taking out of the set:
    - "Woman (MSTRKRFT remix)
    - "Since I left You" (Stereolab remix)
    - "Music Is My Hot Hot Sex"
    - "Ooh la la" (Benni Benassi remix)

    The DJ before me played copious amounts of Hot Chip and !!! so I kinda left them off my list. The typical tracks that went well were, of course, "Paper Planes" and anything Daft Punk (I played two songs to end the show). But things that did go over well that I'm keeping for my next gig:

    - that DIOY,Y? song... forget which one.
    - All of the Hood Internet stuff (about 6 songs)
    - "Je T'Aime" by Armand Van Helden
    - anything Chromeo
    - the rest of the MSTRKRFT stuff I played

    Overall it was a good gig, thankfully the tables were up above the crowd and they had 3 or 4 staff people up on the rail to stop people from raiding me with requests. I ended up playing "Sandstorm" which, on this board, is most likely embarassing, but I swear to god my jaw dropped when I got not one, not two, but THREE requests for "Sandstorm"... People still LISTEN to that song!?!?!... WTF.

    So now, tell some gig stories of your own!
    Upcoming Shows:

    Sandstorm is definitely an old school crowd pleaser ( i know, not really old school) but it feels like its been around forever...my old roommate was waaaaayy into trance stuff, and he tried to convince me over and over again that Sandstorm was the greatest song ever (it didn't work)
    '99-'11...

    I still don't understand how Sandstorm ever got to be as big a song as it has. That Darude dude can live on baseball stadium anthem royalties for the rest of his life.

    Also, thank you, Hood Internet, you are the light of my life as of right now.
