Thank You and Good Night!

Come swing by and see me DJ with Cherry Bomb one last time while supporting a great event that helps to raise funds for both the MS Society and Hospice of VA. This isn't the end of our all girl DJ collective my any means, it just means I will be a less active member.

Records, Art & You

Do you like records? Do you like art? Are you in Richmond, Virginia?
May I suggest heading over to the Anderson Gallery on VCU's academic campus.
South African / Richmond artist Siemon Allen has some stellar projects up there. One series is basically a telling of modern South African cultural history using Miriam Makeba records. There are some large scale pieces using other artist's records.

If you're in Richmond this weekend, lucky you! Tomorrow night there are two events that include members of Cherry Bomb:

Shake & Shout at Sprout!
9:30 PM
Featuring DJs Sara from Cherry Bomb, Greg Darden & Mallory Hansen
An evening filled with a special variety of '60s-laced garage/beat/psych/pop/international/rock 'n roll
plus half-priced drinks and appetizers for the ladies!
* * *
Then over at Cous Cous (just a quick walk away), it's the Four-Year Anniversary Party!

Tracy (Lightning's Girl) from Cherry Bomb will be DJing along with Spaceboy, Carlito, and Lord Thomas - sure to be an awesome mix of great sounds! Head over to celebrate four years of existence for the spot Cherry Bomb has been lucky enough to hold as our hometurf for dance nights, and where we cut our teeth as a group!

It's gonna be a great night all around!

Paolo Nutini is from Paisley.

Paisley is in the west of Scotland, near Glasgow. This tune (and by tune, I mean choooon!) is sunny goodness, worthy of Jamaica. I like contemporary music that is highly derivative of earlier styles - I see it as relevant in a way the original cannot be. I like the originals too, but the contemporary lyrics usually have a perspective relating to our post modern lives. (I mean, we do live in the future.) Also, with the ability to choose different, appropriate production styles; it seems artists now have more control of production values. The actual sound of the song can be a reference point.
