Brought 'Em On Out

Mom? Dad? When I grow up, I want to be...a DJ.

Before last night, I'd never DJed at a bar with an actual dancefloor. It was a great experience and sooooo much fun! Many thanks to Gedge & Bond for inviting me to guest DJ Bring 'Em On In.Thanks also to everyone who came out and who helped make it a particularly awesome night.

Here's a partial and only vaguely chronological setlist:

My Time - The Golden Dawn
Putty - Jenny & The Statesiders
Tu M'Oublies - Planetes
Picture Book - The Kinks
Un Poison Violent, C'est Ca L'Amour - Serge Gainsbourg
Epistle To Dippy - Donovan
Say I Am - Tommy James & The Shondells
Evening Gown - The Left Banke
Take Care - The Troys
Mini Minnie - The Young Ones
It's Your Mind - The Paupers
Last Nite - The New Colony Six
Wild Tiger Woman - The Move
Outside Chance - The Turtles
P'tites P'tites P'tites - Gauloises
Rouge Rouge - Christine Laume
Sur Une Nappe De Restaurant - Jacques Dutronc
Psycho - The Sonics
She Ain't No Use To Me - The Ugly Ducklings
Last Time - The Rolling Stones
Your Face Is In My Mind - The 14th Wray/The Orange Alabaster Mushroom (although this was my only non-'60s cheat of the night, it was met with rabid enthusiasm)
Girl - Les Lutins
Hey Sah-Lo-Ney - The Action
Merci, Herr Marquis - France Gall
Forget All About It - The Nazz

If you don't know many or any of these songs, please get your download on. (I will also happily swap mix CDs with any and all persons.)

(Now playing: "On M'a Toujours Dit", Annie Philippe...taken from "Girls in the Garage Vol. 10" - thanks, Miss Mimi!)

I said it before and I'll say it again--Best BEOI ever!!!

Rocky'll be glad to know he correctly recognized that Golden Dawn track.

And furthermore--extremely cute dress! I'd assumed it was a Marmalade original, 'til Mimi told me where you got it...

I told Greg Watson that having you and Rocky bow to me was like royalty bowing to a shoeshine girl or something.

You guys are the best.

(And yes - so is Winners.)

Thanks, Lang! The boys did ask me to come back in November or thereabouts, so I'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, we'll get Feisty!

Oooh, swapping mix CDs? Sofi, you need to teach me about Canadian music. We get a lot of it here in the Twin Cities, but so much remains hidden. I'll trade you some Minnesota music mixes for some Canadian (or even more localized) stuff.
