Keep It Coming Baby, Can You Dig It?
Last night was insanely fun. Just binoculars. Well, as binoculars as it can be sans DCeiver and his better half. It was our biggest DCist Happy Hour and our best bluestate yet. They both just keep getting bigger and better. I'm struggling to put it all into words. I think last night was the most fun I've had since I moved to DC. It was that good.
Here is the visual record of what happened. Not pictured but rumoured to have also happened; the guy out in front of the venue throwing up in a trashcan, the fight that broke out when some guy bit (yep, with his teeth) some girl and she started bleeding everywhere and the drunk girl that knocked over the toilet in the ladies room. Again, all of these are unconfirmed at press time.
On the DJ tip, the night was great. There wasn't much of a crowd for my 7PM set so I got to play a bunch of stuff I've been wanting to play but haven't found time for. By 9PM the joint was a-jumpin' and people started to get their groove on, mostly thanks to JeffC130, bluestate's unoffical Bez (and I mean that in a good way). I thought the Clash/Killers mash up I played was gonna be song of the night (everyone started looking at the booth when the Killers lyrics started over Rock The Casbah) but then stupid Natalya had to go and play Since You Been Gone and that shit brought the house down! :) By the time my 11 PM set came around I was ad libbing everything and just trying to keep everyone dancing. I almost lost them when I insisted on playing Craig David AND Jamiroquai (I know, I know...), but other than that it was all good.
We even started to get a flood or requests. This one really cute girl came up to me and said "We come here every Saturday and they play hip hop all night and it's alot of fun." To which I said, "Awesome! But you do know tonight is Thursday, right?" She didn't quite seem to comprehend what I was getting at.
Full setlist after the jump.
Big thanks to everyone that came out last night and made everything such a success. I met some fellow bloggers, some local bands and a bunch of readers (Cheers Fletcher). Our next bluestate gig is May 24th at Saint Ex. Details very soon.
I can't believe I missed the C's game last night! Jeezy Creezy. Sounds like shit got out of hand real fast. Saturday's Game 7 will be the first ever in the Fleet Center, the first for the C's since Larry Legend's last game in 1992 and the first Game 7 at home in 1998's so much awesome Bird v. 'Nique game. Lots to live up to, no?
You gave Prince another shot, huh?
