Make dem bun cakes…4/28-5/03

we mash up the bass turn up the place and make some schoolboy run..

Oh, you think your vegas #selfies are cool? well we can’t compete. I couldn’t use my phone most of the time because I thought I was a cat.

but…moving on:


Tuesday 4/29: Jack Beats. Not my ideal Tuesday night but couldn’t get Chvrches tickets. might just watch frozen instead.

Wednesday 4/30: Harry Kondabolu. Sold Out. Also dunno who he is. Okay googled him: he’s a comedian. Its not even music. Wtf.

ALSO Wendesday 4/30: Lane 8! Ajunadeep, if you’re not familiar.

Thursday 5/01: Pegboard Nerds! You know them. They remix ALL the things.

Friday 5/02: Walker & Royce. Deep House. Like…really fucking deep.

Saturday 5/03: Tensnake. House. They have a neat remix of Friendly Fires, a band I was obsessed with in High School. I’d go.


9:30 Club

Teusday and Wednesday 4/29-30: CHVRCHES (SOLD OUT). I’ll be a thorn in your side till you die. I bet you a stubhub ticket that they show up at UHall on Wednesday after lane 8. Any takers?



Friday 5/02: Thomas Gold and Fehrplay. I mean… fuck yeah.

They just announced Afrojack. I saw him in Rome in 2011 in this giant marble coliseum thing. There was so much cocaine and so many fur coats. Afrojack himself was less memorable. I woke up at 7am on the trevi fountain. Good times.



Suriously. Nobody cares.



Thursday 5/01 3lau. I wonder if he, deadmau5, and r3hab have some sort of secret society.

Lane 8 for a Rainy Day

Lane 8: The first track I heard of theirs features vocals by Lucy Stone who I knew from a band in high school called Dancefloor Diplomacy. She was great– and is great in that track. Since I’ll be seeing him tomorrow in DC, I figured this afternoon’s work soundtrack could feature some of the calming and happy house sounds of Lane 8.

This Post-Coachella Week 4/21-28

Guys. Coachella.


Damian Marley showed up in Skrillz’s set, and Pharrell brought in Usher, Jay Z, and Busta Rhymes. During Glitch Mob, the dude next to me ask if I could help him find his face. On 4/20 at 4:20 we were at showtek and I think everyone in the audience lit up joints at the same time. DJ Hanzel was strange and mind blowing (plus we were tripping nutz so…) and Zedd was at Coachella the same night as he was in Vegas. How fun was that? He played this and we all linked arms and sang it really loudly:


Dillon francis is at Duke RIGHT MEOW. woah.





Wednesday 4/23: Claude Von Stroke- His first track was called “deep throat”. I hope I have you convinced.


Thursday 4/24: Factory Floor- post industrial drum and bass. Weird, groovy, really European.


Friday 4/25: Art Department. At Coachella but we missed it for Alesso. Some sweet house DJs, but sadly not free before 11. $20.


Saturday 4/26: MK at Bliss. This one is free before 11! And I only know Will Eastman, but no idea what this MK at Bliss is about…


Sunday 4/27: Survival and Homemade Weapons. The latter is a drum and bass DJ from DC, the former I know nothing about except that it is exceedingly difficult to google.


9:30 Club

Thursday 4/24: Galantis- Evidently one of the best breakout performances at Coachella, it’s supposed to be an unbelievable show. One of them did production for Miike Snow. Talented Bros. 30 doll hairs. If I hadn’t just gone to California, I’d totally go.



Friday 4/25 Borgore and Chuckie- James REALLY ReAlLy really rEaLlY wants you to go.



Thursday 4/24 Rebecca and Fiona w/Nause


Here is what I am looking forward to:

TomorrowWorld Line up comes out Thursday!

Ferhplay @Echostage, 5/2

Sweetlife @ Merriweather, 5/10

Peace, Love, Buy Coachella Presale.

Mashup Mondays Vol. 1

I usually avoid mashups. This is a small collection of mashups that I’ve recently discovered to be really successful. The first is two of my favorite songs ever, and results in an equally  fantastic singular track. We slow it down a little with the Kygo cover, but the rest are dance your pants off kinds of things.

If I can get into this, maybe mashup mondays can be a thing.

4/14-4/21: No-chella

This week: MS MR, Deorro, Grouplove, Bastille, Ellie Goulding, Glitch Mob, Flume, Zedd, Caravan Palace, Outkast, Chvrches, Kid Cudi, Capital Cities, Dillon Francis, RL Grime, Fatboy Slim, Empire of the Sun, Pharrell Williams, Skrillex, Muse, Flight Facilities, STRFKR, Classixx, Rudimental, Krewella, Alesso, Calvin Harris, Lana Del Ray, Disclosure, and Netsky.

Oh. Shit. You aren’t going to Coachella. My b.

Still, staying in DC this week has potential. You get sunshine, tourists, tourists, cherry blossoms, tourists…and Cazzette!


Tuesday- Black Milk with Nat Turner. Black Milk is a hip hop producer and MC but also does live beat work and works with an MPC. Motherfucking Shake Beats..but black!

Wednesday-Moombathon Massive with the local Nadastrom et al.

Thursday-Kill Paris and Candyland. Kill Paris is teaming with Mat Zo a little later, so this is your chance to see him just do his thing, his future-funk-style with sweet guitar riffs and wompy remixes.

Friday- Mark Farina. 10 doll hairs. He created mushroom jazz! Yeah…not sure about that either.

Saturday- Jacques Greene and Tittsworth. Hahaha tittsworth.

Sunday- Jungle joint, brought to you by potheads united.

Art Department, Jack Beats, Lane 8, Pegboard Nerds, Chromeo, Schlomo, Mo (with a strike through the O…not sure how to do that), Kygo, Atrack, and Flume. The only new thing I want to remind you all of is mo with the strike through. I listened to them all weekend. Such Happiness: yeah. Spice girls, man.


9:30 Club

Wednesday- Pat Green. He has a grammy! I think its country music, so…ew.

Monday, 21st– Boy George. So that’s kind of cool

Otherwise, ALL THE SOLD OUT THINGS. But interesting stuff including but not limited to Rusted Root, Zomboy, La Roux, MS MR, A-Track (as aforementioned in the UHall section), and Xavier Rudd



Friday- Cazzette w/Swanky Tunes, the latter of which I’m actually a much bigger fan of. But Cazzeette also does a great show.

Saturday- Carl Cox. I STILL DON’T GET IT.

James would like us all to go to Carnage on 5/10. And when James tells me to do things, I feel this irrational need to do it because he is so goddamn charming. So…Carnage? Sweet. Lezzgo. Unless you got tickets to Sweeetlife, in which case: have fun with Lana.

Also, Paris Hilton

I’m pretty stoked for Phoenix and Gareth Emery.



Thursday- DVBBS, with their song “This is dirty”which goes dadada dadada dadada dada dada. Another song called tsunami which goes dadadada dada dada dada dada da. Another song called immortal which goes da da dadadada da da dadadada da da dadadada but then they add a trap beat so it goes dadadada dada dada dada boom kick boom dadadada.

Other Stuff

Wednesday- Rufus Wainwright @the Lincoln theater

Thursday- We Are Scientists @Black Cat. I used to listen to them in High school because I was that cool in High School

There’s also this Thank You Festival that I’ve gotten more details on. Good things: Tiesto! Above and Beyond! And the Krew! Bad things: Its at Merryweather, it’s on a Thursday 6/26, lawn is 45 and pavilion is 75. Merp.


In summary: Get Kygo, Lane 8, and Flume tickets (uhall website). Maybe Carnage tickets (echo). stubhub has Phoenix tickets.

I’ll snap you from Coachella! YO SKRILLZZZZZZZZZZZ wait shit I have to get to Muse.




Russell Brand ‏@rustyrockets  26 May 2011

** I suggest: Lane 8, Kygo, Chromeo, A-track, and Flume. #doit
