The 17hr Layover - Atlanta Edition

This past weekend my life felt like an episode of Anthony Bourdain's Layover series but instead of a 24 hours. I only had a 17 hour grace period to do what I needed to and eat what was necessary to keep my stomach filled.  After arriving in beautiful Atlanta at 2pm, the homie DJ Alphatrion scooped me up before our gig at Deuces Wild and we headed over to D' Cuban to try one of their delicious Cuban sandwiches.

From there we headed over to our afternoon / evening gig which finished up around midnight and during that time everyone seemed to head out to the after party at I Love Pho.  No, that's not the name of a club, it's a Pho restaurant which we sat at until around 3am.  After a trip to Alpha's home to discuss his filmmaking skills, movie collection and his movie poster collection I took a quick nap on the couch and back to the airport at 5am for my 7am flight back to the 215.  Quick trips without luggage and only records in hand don't happen often, but I guess it all comes with the job.

Manifesto Festival, Toronto.

Seems like my stock in Canada has been on the rise over the last few years as I've gotten booked more in 2 than the previous 5.  Hopefully that trend will continue and I'll get to head out there more often.  With that said, next week I'll be making a return trip to DJ at Manifesto Festival in Toronto.

Insert Coins

My favorite place to hang out when in Las Vegas is without a doubt, Insert Coins.  Everything about the place from the DJ's and sound system to the arcade games is right up my alley.  It's great to see fellow lover of gaming culture and Kung Fu flicks, Chris LaPorte pushing forward with the movement of gaming and going against the grain of typical night clubs.

The Vinyl Exam

This past Monday I was featured on the latest episode of The Vinyl Exam podcast.  Each week the series finds itself featuring a collector of vinyl, sometimes on 45, other times in LP form while the interviewer and guest discuss some of their favorite pieces.  This week I spoke about 5 7" gems from my collection and heavy on the soul genre at that.
