After my post about the magical new record I found yesterday (Freestyle Man’s “Baby Wants to Ride” from the French label Crack and Speed), I started to get actually nervous that it would be bought before I could go back to the store. I even made my friend scarf down his sandwich so we could rush. Very fortunately, the record was right where I left it and I even got a modest discount on it from Lloyd himself. I’ll never tempt fate like that again. *whew*
After dropping off the record for safe-keeping at my friend’s place, we set forth on our ambitious itinerary:
10 – 11 pm: Output with Hot Chip/Juan Maclean/Nikola Baytala
11 – 1:30 am: Club Jerome’s Terrace Warming Party
4 am – ?: Sublimate with Ben UFO and Joy Orbison
We did *almost* all of it. Output didn’t happen (only two of us were on the guest list) and we were too exhausted to stay at the Sublimate party for more than an hour, but we definitely got in a full day of great music.
