Bright Moments

It's almost that loveliest time of month again, and it's definitely that time of year - everything seems so optimistic, so possible, all of a sudden. There are porches to be sat on, cocktails and 40's to be supped - it's so magnificent, in fact, that even the 1970s suddenly seem far more than palatable; almost required.

In honor of such feelings, I had to make myself a car tape of northern-goes-funky-disco stuff - tentatively titled "Klipschorn Mecca" after David Mancuso's Loft and Ian Levine's Blackpool Mecca, two of the 1970s most important nightlife spots. Really I'll probably call it "Soulcialism Means Never Having to Say You're Sorry," or even better, "Fuck Off, Snobs."

Anyway, point is, I'm going to bring a dozen or so copies to Soulcialism at the White Eagle on Friday, April 21, to give to interested parties. Not a general-issue freebie, since not everybody digs the modern-northern or funky-disco sounds, and I don't wanna bother mugs who don't care. So if you're interested, make sure to email me and/or come up to the decks-desk on Friday! A buck for the blank disc would rock, but not mandatory.
