Around this time last year, I went to LA for the first ever Part Time Punks festival. I hung out with A Certain Ratio, I met the Propeller Records guys, I bought a Urinals t-shirt, I ate a taco the size of my head and I bickered with my friend Adesh like an old married couple. It was a great time and you can read all about it here. Now I’m coming back for a whirlwind visit, I probably won’t even go to Amoeba this time, but I will be DJing more.
First, on Saturday, October 10th, I will be joining jasefromouterspace and Kazzique at their party The Chase. There will also be some live music from Love Grenades and Sample 208. There will also be special guests! And also me! I will be bringing a random bunch of vinyl records. Disco, italo-disco, post-punk disco, Loft disco, hip-house disco, crisco disco, etc disco, etc. As you can see in the flyer above, the party takes place saturday at the Mountain Bar, 473 Gin Ling Way, LA, from 10pm till 2am. 21+ and $5 to enter.
Then, on Sunday, October 11th, I will be hanging out at the second annual Part Time Punks Festival. I will be DJing here and there between bands. The line-up as of now features:
SECTION 25 (Factory Records)
