>>_TONIGHT: SAUNTER IN TO THE SALOON
I'm the 'tween band DJ tonight at the Covered Wagon Saloon, 9pm - 2am. I've been unable to get exact band names handy, but my understanding is that it's a night of space rock bands. You know, rock with a theme.
Details should be in this weeks "Guardian."
I've started working with a great band called Sci-Fi
as their gig DJ. They won't be performing tonight, but check out their site to get an idea of what tonight might sound like. SCI-FI:
Covered Wagon Saloon
917 Folsom Street, at Fifth Street (974-1585)
Bus 12, 27. Open 4.30pm-2am. No credit cards. 21+
Two rooms and a bar, the CW is no place to go if you can't stand to sweat. The interior and live music run towards grunge.

>>_HERE COMES THE AUDIO
I now have Sony's most powerful portable minidisc recorder. This means music. This means recordings of live sets, easily and frequently. This means you can rock like it's Saturday night at 2am on Tuesday afternoon at 3pm.
The hardest bone in the body is called the petrous. It is a small bone in the ear. Humans evolved with this bone to deal with the likes of me.
>>_TWO NEW PICS
Postcard-worthy images to share this week. No particular topic, so I tossed them into the various directory."Prepare to stop when amber flashing"
(courtesy of Steph, as seen in Canada)"Eric drives 115mph"

>>_MORE PICSHarmony 6 Year Anniversary
at the dance studio space on Conneticut in
SF. (Funny how we hold spaces dear and remember them...) A surprise
resurgence in the family-focused style Harmony party--it was a good
night. Unfortunately, I didn't take enough pictures, but these do
capture some of my lesser-seen buddies.
>>_GIMME PROMOS, OK?
Send me your promo mixes and tell your buddies to get me something too!
I have more and more opportunity to get gigs for others, so I'm going to
work to set deserving folks up. This is for DJs at all skill levels and
in all genres.
Somewhat related, I'm also going to be adding a promo mix review page to
my website. You'll see that and more in upcoming site upgrades.
This Saturday night is Sandwiches. This event is long sold-out, but the
good news is I offered the tickets here on the list right when they came
out, so chances are everyone interested has tickets in hand. I hope!
