Metal Wednesdays & Left Fest Success

(Thanks for the W, Municipal Waste.)

With the success of Full Metal Spindig and the Metal Xmas Party, Butter will now host a monthly metal night every first Wednesday of the month. Doors open at 8, DJs 10-1, and all kinds of metal will be played all night. It jumps off this week on February 3rd. Want to spin metal with us for free drinks? Hit me up.

(And here I borrowed a W from Warbringer.)

"Back to the hip-hop" (like the Troubleneck Brothers): I failed to post about this show beforehand, but last Thursday night's Left Fest at Mezzanine had a great lineup with an equally great crowd to enjoy it. Here's the video flyer I made, which I was excited to see up on the wall.

Souls of Mischief celebrated the release of their new album, Montezuma's Revenge. It was also Crowne Royale's (Buff1 and DJ Rhettmatic) debut appearance in the Bay Area. Learn more about them at the Myx Music Label site. Hot shit!

If you missed the Edan and Ricky Powell "Echo Party" party, or just want to reminisce, check out Ron Nachmann's excerpts:

SteadySonic with DJ B.Cause

I don't DJ on Saturday nights much anymore, mostly because I'm sticking to vinyl only and don't have Lady Gaga or David Guetta on wax nor would I want it. But this party at SOM will be different. The DJs have the opportunity to be creative, and I think SOM's crowd will appreciate it. See you on the dance floor.

Edan's Echo Party party last Tuesday night at Change the Beat was phenomenal. The man Ron Nachmann provides an on-point review over at's Last Night section. Here's a clip of the first part of Edan's set.

Edan Echo Party

Got Edan's Echo Party album on vinyl and it's an incredible collage of old school rap, dance, various rhythms and crazy sound effects that make me want to double dutch. Read about it in Stones Throw news.

He's DJing at SOM tonight and screening the "Echo Party" film along with photographer Ricky Powell who will present a slide show of his work. Sounds like two great things that go great together like chocolate and peanut butter in a Reese's cup. I found a few flicks from the LA show on Flickr.

Tonight at SOM also marks the first installment of CB Records' legendary weekly party, Change the Beat, at its new location.

D.R.I. tonight

I'm stoked to see Dirty Rotten Imbeciles live for the first time tonight at Slim's. Note to self: Get the "Live at The Ritz" DVD, which this clip is from:

It almost makes up for Slayer cancelling their tour. Almost.
