Paragons / Abba

Another fun video for a great song.

Der Hund von Baskerville

This amazing video is courtesy Didi of Ultra Violet Vintage! Wow, what's not to love about a German cover of Black Sabbath's Paranoid and fashion from 1970? So awesome.

Feminism : Out of the University and into the Mosh Pit

Kathleen Hanna is still larger than life, oh wait, that might just be her glasses.

Aqua Nebula Oscillator

Serious pick of the week: for me right now, it doesn't get much cooler than an international psychedelic group made up of members from Brussels, Quebec and Paris, including one particularly rad French lady DJ named Shazzula!

For a little "About the Band," I'll leave it to their myspace page:

"Every concert of the band is a total trance Experience. Into his spaceship,David Os & his brothers crossed Europe from East to West. In 2003,the movie 'Van International' of Juan Trip recall this adventure.Since his 7 years old kid,the drummer of the band is projected inside an Hippie Community in the Pyrénées (France). The band changed 3 times members and now Vince,Simon and Shazzula joined the band definitively!"

It's Hawkwind meets the Silver Apples joined by a dose of Catherine Ribeiro + Alpes/2BIS on a 21st century cosmic plane, while a late-'60s Kenneth Anger projects occult-inspired visuals in flashes of color and light.

Also: head back to their myspace page to check out one I love in particular that has no video for me to post, "Celestial Dream". The French language layered over that sound is seriously golden to me. Pure love.

Cherry Bomb at Balliceaux this Thursday!

Please join us this Thursday, February 11th at the very classy Balliceaux for Cherry Bomb's very own Sadie Hawkins Dance! This is just one of several events that Balliceaux is putting on throughout the week to celebrate Valentine's Day and we are very excited to spin there for the first time!

We'll be bringing jazz, girl groups, motown, and whatever else sounds awesome with us. The party's getting started at 9:00 and we hope to see you there! (No date required!)

Sadie Hawkins Dance: In the U.S., this concept was popularized by establishing dance events to which the woman invited a man of her choosing, instead of demurely waiting for a man to ask her. The first known such event was held on November 9, 1938. Within a year hundreds of similar events followed suit, and the tradition became a permanent fixture in some regional American cultures.

The Waitresses : I Know What Boys Like

I have had this song stuck in my head since I DJed it last night.

Sara's Pick of the Week

Cold Hard Times...

I guess this could pretty much be the anthem for us here in Richmond, Virginia right now. At least in the weather department.
