Disco Unleaded

This Thursday is the first installment of my new pedal-to-the-metal monthly at Philly's newest venue, Soundgarden Hall. Here's the deal - Actual Records, Shawn Ryan and I are going to be bringing you the best national and international house and disco headliners with ample doses local support and good vibes. The party is every second Thursday in the new back-room venue called The Hacienda, it runs late and it's BYOB. Bring a case of beer or a bottle of liquor or wine and the staff will put it on ice for you and provide you with mixers. Yeah, you can bring a case of beer and party all night for just five bucks. If you're under 21, you can party too! Oh, and it gets better, our first guest is my main man Eli Escobar.

 Every time I have rocked with Eli or heard him play live, I've thought "this man sells a record better than anybody." What I mean is that Eli can play a set that consists almost entirely of what I consider to be "risky" records to play - jams that might need a few tracks to set up in order to get the crowd on board. But Eli SELLS the damn thing - with subtlety he shows you why this is a damn good record. Really, it's a pleasure to hear the man play music. At the risk of being too laudatory, I should also mention that he has a great production resume and has remixed Lana Del Rey, Bag Raiders, Diplo, M.I.A., Chromeo, Holy Ghost!, Pase Rock, Jessica 6, Dirty Vegas, Ali Love, and Amanda Blank. So there's that.

So, it's decided. See you this Thursday! (Of course, all other Thursdays of the month you can still catch me at Red Room with Ed Blammo!)
