>>_ALL ABOARD TO RENO

Just an early warning--I'll be playing in Reno on Friday, January 18th.
There's an after-hours event there that's been hugely successful each
and every Friday. The night *starts* well after two, and goes until the
DJ can't play no more. No liquor laws in Nevada so the bar is open all
night.

More details to come as the day approaches, but this is early warning in
case you'd like a vacation to hit this event along with maybe some time
on the slopes or gambling.

>>_DJ MIXTAPES

If you are crazy for DJ mix recordings on tape or CD I have two sites to
recommend. The first is very well known, but the second less so--it's a
gem of a site I found based out of Canada.

PURE ACID MIXTAPES (US)
TRIPLEDECKS (CAN)

>>_CENTRAL VALLEY PHOTOS

Since I'll be at Smile 6 tomorrow (Friday), I thought I'd update my
photos from Sacramento parties. There's a new directory featuring only
Sac-area parties here.
(The XTORT "Submerge" directory is included, and its old folder is deleted.)

>>_JIVE MAGAZINE ARTICLE

See me, and many other familiar names, in this Jive Magazine article on lady DJs.

">Goddess of the Turntables" by Misty Thomas

"In this dynamic industry, it is difficult for a DJ to find an outlet
for their music to be heard. It is even more difficult to make a name
for yourself. This counts twofold for female DJs. Unless you're Sandra
Collins or Baby Anne, female DJs have a very difficult time being
recognized...."

>>_MONDAY BIRTHDAY MADNESS

This Monday, December 10th, is the special Saggitarius edition of Secret
Society. Come celebrate *five* birthdays at once, for only $1 cover.
And if that doesn't convince you, come for a tag-team first: Shane and
I will be tag-teaming dance music.

>>_AAK! I LOVE THIS SITE!

Long ago and far away, a college student's freebie webspace on the
university server was put to great use--one of the only *true* sites
dedicated to acid techno and trance. It was a beautiful thing, totally
homegrown and full of facts not available anywhere else.

Then, one day, it's was gone.

Now, one day, it's back. (Tada! End of story.) Ok, if you like acid
techno and trance this is, literally, the only comprehensive site on the
genre that I have ever found. I'm so glad it's back.

And here it is ---> ACID PHONK

>>_PICTURES FROM DNA LOUNGE

The pics from last week are in! Thanks a-plenty to James for playing photojournalist extraordinaire. Be warned that most pics are of me as James was looking to get some promo shots, but you definitely get some crowd action, too. Including some Grade A pics of Goolie!
