Yo, DJ (Pump This Party.)

Being, superficially, a familiar update on the alleged immanence of a DJing career, but with uncharacteristic specificity.

I have a proper DJing gig lined up: Thursday 24th April, The Temple Bar, Temple Road. Twisted Disco is go! While this date seems pretty damn solid, it is still subject to the usual vagaries of Real Life. Not least amongst these is the fact that this is very day that tinyjo goes under the knife (well, coherent light beam) to have her face replaced by Nicholas Cage's eyes fixed. She should be fine by the evening, but it is possible that I'll end up staying with her and debuting the following Thursday...

Tonight I'm going clubbing to listen to my New Best Matetm Richard Craven DJing at Trash y, and may well be meeting Anna to discuss the possibility of me doing the same. tinyjo and I went last week, and it was rather fun. The emphasis seemed to be on familiarity but diversity. Not quite sure what would work from the more dancy/alternative side of my collection, but I reckon I could construct a set that would do the job, and it's random enough that the odd bad choice that no-one dances to isn't too disruptive because no-one dances to every track anyway. And it was the first time I've heard a DJ segue from Madonna to Nirvana, or danced to Iron Maiden's Run To The Hills for about 8 years. Good stuff.

I dunno. You wait ages for a post, then three come along at once...
