New Developer mix for RA is pretty great.
Especially liked the last track. Can't find a video
Gonna try and see him in NY at the end of this month.
semi-oldie but goodie
That's one of my favorite Coil tracks. That whole album is such a precursor to IDM and techno to come in its wake, but is more known in industrial circles despite leaving that sound pretty early in their career.
Was listening to the Two Lone Swordsmen remix album and came across this, which is so up my alley:
I love Coil and I love Surgeon. Awesome mix.
This track is teh jamz:
Happy Monday everyone.
mix I did this weekend, something to listen to while travelling to LA from Europe
enjoy 3 hours of techno.
Not the best of days.
I listened to K-S.H.E. - Routes Not Roots for the first time earlier today, while we're on the topic of Thaemlitz. Some times dude's/chick's politics get the better of him/her, but man, (s)he is a bonafide fucking artist. I'm extraordinarily jealous of that DJ Sprinkles set.
Really good stuff indeed.
I couldn't help but notice that you plan to attend the Layo & Bushwacka / Voodoo show in SF on fri. I may have an extra free ticket. PM me if you wind up going.
I was going to go to Brandt Braur Frick and Ripperton at the Voodoo LA but they wanted $52 and I just do not have that kind of money right now haha..
Wow. That's pricey.
Yeah but the LA show is like 100 people and an open bar. So....
4/17: The Afghan Whigs @ Slim's
4/17: Minilogue @ Mighty
4/21: The Men @ Rickshaw Stop
4/26: Simian Mobile Disco, Earth @ Pappy and Harriet's
5/2-5/4: Austin Psych Fest @ Carson Creek Ranch
5/10: Joey Anderson @ TBA
5/17: Kishi Bashi @ GAMH
5/17: Move D b2b Optimo, Jackmaster, J.Phlip @ PW
5/21: Baths @ The Independent
5/30: The Decemberists @ The Crystal Ballroom
I didn't realize there was an open bar... Hmmm..
Eh, still. I don't like to drink that much when I'm trying to stay up late dancing. It makes me sleepy and uncoordinated.
I saw Boo Williams and John Tejada for like $15 and there was free drinks till midnight and only 100 or so people there. $52 is still ridiculously pricey.
I've also seen BBF twice.
Will probably just hit up Truncate the night before or Doc Martin the night of.
$52 w/ open bar is a GREAT deal.
I guess if you get like 3-4 drinks it pays off. I would still rather just pay $20 and have to buy drinks though. I usually only get 1 or 2.
I'll put out a slightly different perspective on the LA party. I've gone to all but 1 of them since this past July and yes it's open bar (and they pour a VERY stiff drink) - the price has been all inclusive since I've been going. But the price has doubled in the last 6 months and if you're like me and do not drink at the parties the price is a huge factor. I'm all for seeing great talent in an intimate location, but I can't drink enough bottles of water to make the $52 worth it. It's why I'm coming to SF for the show, where I get the added bonus of catching Layo & Bushwacka.
A good choice. The loft in which BBF and Ripperton are playing is my absolute favorite place to dance in the city. Very intimate. I assume you're heading over to Magda for afters? If my hunch is correct, that should be w/in walking distance.
Yes on Magda already bought my ticket, and the timing is perfect as it will help me kill the few hours until my flight back to LA at 8:55 am.
Awesome weekend to be in SF. See you guys there!
Also, Boiler Room will be showing Raime (DJ) and Emptyset (Live) today.
^ You're coming up this weekend?
