memorial day salute

At the request of Empire Room resident DJ TwoHeavy, I put together a little line-up for a Memorial Day event to be hosted at the Empire Room.  It turned out quite a bit of fun, with a small collective of folks dancing to tracks from local DJs Maxx, Bucho, RJ Bass, Matt Heaven, myself (phocas), and of course, resident TwoHeavy.

DJ Solaris dragged me along for a gig he had down in Springfield, closing for the band The Lonely.  His brand of Techno fit perfectly alongside the band and the opener, DJ Kid Conundrum.

While Todd was off in Springfield, Kourtney captured the activities of the night at the funky little space known as The Stray Cat.  An event put on by the message forum Syde-Sho, the fun little all night long party featured Dave Brock up from Florida, along with Lady Espina from Iowa, StevieC from St Louis, Nierika from Omaha, and local support from Pat Nice, Atom Bryce & Xan Lucero, cQuence, Bucho, Sydeburnz, BobbyD, and Nuro.

F.O.G. Friday

On a random invite we stopped by for a Friday night at Knuckleheads Saloon.  It was an interesting affair, though not something we would likely do on a regular basis.

blo pajama party

What better night to through a Pajama Party than Monday, right?  Everyone always says they just want to go home and get in their PJs.  So they did, then crawled home and passed out in bed.

queens of the underground

Joe and I hopped for a ride up to Omaha for this gig, to check out an all women line-up that was fantastic! The event was at a former lazer tag place and featured DJs from the region, Phelyne, cQuence, Kali, Skizm, Symmetry, Shan, Lady Crysis, Lady Espina, and Shandi.

jonathan ramsey may.04

We had dropped in on Jonathan Ramsey once before at Harling's and had a really great time.  When somebody suggested a repeat, we jumped at it, and a good time was had by all as he performed a pint full of perfectly Irish-tinged songs, and a few he wished we would just forget.

blo: because mondays don't have to suck

Blo was not hosting any sort of themed night this time around, but it was not any less wild and crazy, especially with the addition of stripper pole to the dance floor.  Resident DJ 2Heavy kept them dancing all night long.

velvin & shanthrax going away

A little get together at the ATM for a farewell celebration for two of our favorite local DJs, one of which is now a part of America's Top Model.  Velvin and Shanthrax are off to far off places to seek their fortune and will be sorely missed, but not before one more drink and a little more dancing.

liquid buzz appreciation party

While Todd was down soaking in the House grooves of Derrick Carter, Joe dropped by the Madrid for a set of photos from the Liquid Buzz Appreciation Party going on there.  Led by local radio personality DJ Vaughn with support from the Syde-Sho krewe of DJs.
