It’s Time To Edit

December 22, 2011

I don’t have to go into the office again for the next 11 days!! I’ve got a pretty rad job, but it’s still nice to have a break.

I’ve gone to a lot of Christmas parties in the past week. Choir!Choir!Choir! had our end of year party last Friday night. Buck 65 played some records, and there was a wild performance by Little Orton Hoggett and his Ten Cent Wings!

Sloan headlined the 2nd of a 2-night benefit concert organized by Fucked Up last night at the Great Hall!

I’m thinking about editing a bunch more photos this week from the past few months, but we shall seeeeeeee…

I’m DJing at the Garrison Again on MON DEC 26th

December 21, 2011

I’ll be playing records in the front room of the Garrison again next Monday, Dec 26th. All vinyl, no CD’s or mp3’s, no format, there’s a bunch of bands playing in the back, cover is $5 OR 3 non-perishable food items. All proceeds go to the food bank (I’m not getting paid, it’s all for love that night).

Don’t worry, “no format”, doesn’t mean shitty, irritating, obscure-for-obscures-sake and/or difficult. It means I’m playing songs I like, no holds barred! Maybe you’ll already know the songs, maybe you won’t, but I’ll be playing stuff like this (one of my favorite songs of 2011):

and this (one of my favorite Patti Smith songs):

and this (one of my favorite songs from the 90’s by a Dutch band fronted by a lady):

I expect the evening to be positive, relaxed, and low-key with lots of Holiday Cheer! No cut-eye, no cocaine allowed.

I’m DJing at the Garrison Saturday Dec 17th

December 16, 2011

I’ll be djing from 11pm -> close in the front room of the Garrison tomorrow night. All vinyl, no format, no cover. I’ll consider requests if you look at my records and see a song you like.

It’s the Garrison’s annual X-Mas/Customer appreciation night! The Balconies, Special Surprise Guest and The Danger Bees will be playing in the back room. Again, NO COVER in the front or the back. Come. I won’t think it’s weird that you’re there. Unless I’ve specifically told you to never speak to me again 🙂

I’ll be playing emo cds and mp3’s on Thursday January 12th 2012 with hardcoresnaps and killing_girls in the Shop Under Parts & Labour, for Met You On Livejournal 4.0, featuring a live set by emo/screamo coverband DEAR DIARY!!
