Post-punk/indie dj party in Mt. Pleasant Fri. night!
« on: August 02, 2007, 12:02:00 pm »
Just a shameless shout-out about the dj night that my friends and I are doing over at the Marx Cafe in Mt. Pleasant Friday night. We typically play a lot of the older, classic post-punk, shoegaze & indie stuff ala old Factory, 4AD, Creation & Cherry Red, but we mix it up with some new stuff too. Definitely very different from Mousetrap and the typical 80s nights around town.
 
 No cover, so stop by if you're in the neighborhood. Even if you're going to a show, we spin until 3am, so keep us in mind if you're looking for a place to have a nightcap. The Belgian beer is always choice at Marx, especially that Blue Chimay.  ;)
 
 Hope to see some of you Friday night!

Please, somebody go for me! Unfortunately, I can't due to having to be at work early in the morning tomorrow.   :(  
 
 We Fought The Big One is always a good night full of great music without the uber-hipstertutes.

Three DJs played Colin Newman? What's He Said, chopped liver?
 
 Kudos ( :p ) for the Rainy Day. Nice sets.
