Congratulations, Steve and Nan

Yesterday, in a stunning redwood grove near Ben Lomond, California, my friend, Steve, married Nan, a gorgeous brunette with a quick laugh, bright smile, and upbeat personality. I was honored to be asked to be one of the groomsmen. The ceremony was touching. I don’t have the words to express how thrilled I am for […]

95 Minutes of Wedding Music

Today, I played music in front of a crowd for the first time in a very long time. In addition to my duties as a groomsman and usher, I closed the evening after a bluegrass band finished their live music. The Front Porch Band played a selection of bluegrass songs. The lead singer led a […]

Wedding DJ Preparation

So, over the last week or so, I’ve been shoring up the playlist for my buddy’s wedding. I have a big bin of wedding staples, including a ridiculous amount of disco, funk, pop, and soul. According to iTunes, I could play continuously for 18 hours without playing the same track twice. That should suffice. Early […]

Alpha Beats: A is for Alien

Tonight, I got to hear my friend, Sunshine Jones, play his music live for the first time in about a year. As the cofounder of Dubtribe Sound System, he’s responsible for a catalog that goes back nearly 20 years. In the last few years, he’s been performing as a solo artist, playing some of his […]

Saying Goodbye to Consumating

This afternoon, around 1:30 in the afternoon, CNET switched off Consumating for the last time. It was announced about six weeks ago, but we all still hoped that there’d be a last minute reprieve. This evening, we were redirected at, where the foul-mouthed hipsters of Consumating crashed head-on with the heavily-moderated juvenile-friendly I’ll […]

Depth Charge

After today’s run, I took a shower and got ready to head up to San Francisco for Depth Charge at Levende Lounge. My friend, Sunshine Jones was headlining. I haven’t seen him for a long time, so I grabbed my new housemate and headed out. Sunshine was just taking over the sound system when we […]

Promsumating 2008

Tonight was Consumating‘s formal party, largish, formal consumeeting in san fran (formerly known as promsumating). The first time I went, in July 2006, I manned a kissing booth, breakdanced in my tuxedo, and ended up in the flickr photos of a bunch of people. This time around, I wasn’t sure that I was going to […]

Ringing in 2008

New Year’s Eve 2007. Finally, it arrived. I decided a little while ago that my recent clubbing exile should end. I was being reclusive for no good reason and, hey, it’s time to celebrate. I reserved a rental car for the purpose, just in case something happens. I don’t really want to be out celebrating […]


Tonight, I decided to return to the San Francisco night life for the first time since July 14. That was the last time I went out to any party and got my crazy groove on. But, I figured that five months away from the scene was probably a good break and I’m allowed to have […]

Out on the Town

So, I was supposed to go to Staple on Friday night, but I overslept my disco nap (sorry, Fil). I decided to get my ass out of my house for a change and lined up a few Saturday night parties that might be worth checking out. Leaving my house about 10:45, I headed up toward […]
