    Portland's show was a lot of fun. I still think the first time I saw him play a live set (Seattle in January) was the best show I've caught since I didn't have anything to compare it to. I've been spoiled in Seattle with Max Cooper shows this last year then add Barcelona and symbi - but he's always a fun time especially when he drops those tracks that always get me dancing hard. Always such a cool guy to talk to - he's very excited about playing LA and Denver and reminiscing with him about the awesomeness of symbi was cool. That experience seems to have really stuck with him heh.

    Awesome!

    how was Martyn? I've never seen him play more than an hour 15, would love to catch a longer.

    I really loved Martyn's live set when I saw him in Vancouver a while back so this wasn't AS good to me. He played a good 1hr 45min dj set consisting of a wide range of house - started with acid, went into some groovy soulful shit, was dropping Joy O, Caribou, etc. Good night!

    I overheard a hilarious conversation while in the bathroom during Max Cooper. It went something like this:
    girl 1: I can't believe I paid $15 for this. This guy is so.... all over the place. I don't like it.
    girl 2: I know, he's just been so.... I don't know.... everywhere
    girl 1: He just needs to put on some Missy Elliot and I'll be good
    girl 2: There are 3 other djs playing so maybe 1 will be good
    girl 1: I've been here since 9 and it's not getting better

    I come out, wash my hands and say "If you don't like Max Cooper, you are not going to like Martyn".
    She stood in front of the mirror and stared at me blankly through the reflection, said nothing, and I walked out.

    Too funny. It still amuses me so much that people just....show up and pay money at clubs where there are specific DJs with known productions and styles and then get upset that whatever bullshit over played radio hits they want to shake it to aren't played.

    to be fair, Max's music is all over the place. I'm not a fan of glitch, trance or dubstep but there are major aspects of each in his tunes. But those bitches were simply at the wrong place.

    The room was slowly cleared in Chicago. There were roughly 100 people when Max started and only 30 at the end of the night. People just wanted to hear generic house, not something aurally challenging.

    The choice of venue(the basement of the Vision Nightclub) was an odd one. He would have been better received at a different club(Smart Bar). I hope he wasn't disappointed by the turn out. It was actually a blessing that there wasn't a crowd as this place had only one bathroom. There were also some minor lighting issues during Max's set that added to the mellow mood.

    Aside from that, the music was excellent. Easily in my top 3 sets of the year. The lack of attendance afforded me all sorts of dancing space. I was clearly having more fun than anyone else there. He played for over 2 hours. Definitely heard some new songs and sounds.

    I introduced myself to Max after the show. I thanked him for coming to Chicago and told him how excited I was for Denver. He was very gracious.

    She just wanted some Missy!

    I had a total jerk-store moment afterwards, thinking I should've said something along the lines of "maybe if you actually researched where you were going out to dance you could've saved that $15", but she probably wouldn't even know what I was talking about. Research? Research what? She looked at me like she didn't understand english when I told her she wouldn't like Martyn.

    I really enjoyed Max in Portland on saturday. I forgot how awesome his remix of Hayling is, I thought it was a perfect way to end the show.

    My appologies if anyone was victum to me dropping my glass onto the floor at the begining of Martyn. The gin and tonics got the best of me.

    My friend is wondering the following:

    "Does anyone in the San Francisco area have a spare room they would want to rent for the period of 9/30-10/5 to my friend Max Cooper (yes the dj)? Please send me a message if so!"

    PM me if interested (if you're not creepy and shit)

    I had only listened to all of Max Coopers' EPs and liked them well enough. I recently discovered all of his live sets posted on his soundcloud and oh. my. fucking. god. I had no idea.

    I should resign myself from this thread after skipping Max at dB (and as I will be skipping his SF show this week). Redemption in LA and Denver? I hope so...

    Cara - Zack doesn't live anywhere close to King King.

    Zack - Metro Red Line will let you off at Hollywood & Vine, so you can definitely take the train. First train Saturday morning back to Union station is around 4:45 am. Take public transport and get weird with Heidi!

    I am so excited for this and I just can't seem to get the same enthusiasm out of my cohorts. They are all tentative about the late hour. It sucks getting older because everybody seems to keep getting older around you.

    I will be there and hopefully I can get the group to at least make it through part of Max's set. When do you think he will start?

    I had learned how to say let's get weird in hebrew yet now i forgot it....part of it sounded like a poor pronouncation of Bon Iver. I'll bring some cheap whiskey.
