If you missed it (shame on you!) here’s the set I played at Open Source @ Retox in SF.



Open Source Wrap-Up

Posted in Events on August 10, 2009 by Anodyne

Some lessons were learned Saturday night.

1) Do a more thorough recon of the competition. We scheduled Open Source the same night as another big party that we overlooked.

2) Bring your own gear! The house turntables died 1/3 of the way in and the DJs had to tag team between one turntable and a laptop.

3) Promote until you think you’ve saturated the market. Then promote some more. If you still have flyers in your bedroom by the night of the event, you’re doing it wrong.

All in all we worked through the difficulties and had a great time! We made a profit!! All of our money invested plus $1 !!! That means we’re doing this again damnit!

I brought out the KP3 Kaoss pad for this gig and it didn’t dissapoint! My performance was great with only a couple of snags and I had a fantastic time listening to my tunes on a loud sound system. God.. sometimes you just can’t appreciate a deep sub bass properly unless it’s so loud it resonates and shakes the floorboards AND ceiling! Hell yeah. Best memory of the night.
