Epic Workend

Thursday I pulled a 22-hour work day running sound at the USAID 50th Anniversary; Vice President Biden spoke and Ethiopian artist Angelique Kidjo performed! The setup was the most stressful I've ever done; I had to setup separate feeds for the teleprompter and green room while avoiding the incandescent lighting cables run around the room which induced a buzz into our audio. All this while under severe time constraints knowing we'd get kicked out of the building for the secret service security check an hour before the show.

Friday night I tour managed for Sharam on the first stop of his Warung Live Release Tour at Josephine in DC. I organized our end of the show with promoters, set up and tore down his DJ setup and generally made sure things went smoothly in the booth. You can see pictures from the event on Glow's Facebook page. Saturday we were at Pure Club in Buffalo, New York where I enjoyed handing out the CD I worked on to some really excited fans.

Sharam Live at Warung Beach Brasil

I've been working for DJ Sharam at Yoshitoshi since April. I spend most of my time producing Sharam's Wildcast and internationally syndicated Yoshitoshi Radio show but occasionally I get involved in a really interesting project like this.
Sharam Live at Warung Beach Brasil is taken from a 10-hour DJ set Sharam did back in May. I was responsible for cutting and editing the audio and have played a significant role in the integrated marketing communications for the album putting together parts of the newsletter, website and social media plan.
It has also risen as high as #17 on the iTunes Dance Album chart.

I took these panoramas and stitched them together with Hugin. Click fullscreen!

Doug Williams and Campus Cruisers

Sixseed shot and edited this video and it is a dirty, gritty inline masterpiece.

He's also been hard at work recycling used skateboards into super slick Campus Cruisers. He threw this instructable up for a Green Living and Technology Challenge, watch the video and cast your vote!

Bill Withers - Moanin' and Groanin'

I just thought I'd share this great bluesy track I found on Bill Withers' 12" Just as I Am. Also has classic tunes Ain't No Sunshine and Grandma's Hands - the song Dre sampled for No Diggity. Great album, Al Jackson in the pocket on drums.

Scene Unheard

Well it finally happened. After years of floating around the top ten Ohio University has finally settled in at number one party school in Princeton Review's annual survey. This seems like an apt time to remind everyone that there's more to Athens then couch fires and beer bongs.
Scene unheard is a short documentary about noise and basement house shows I shot during my last year at Ohio University. It showcases a few of the unique house-turned-venues around town alongside perspectives of owners, concerned neighbors and police officials.
Music by the excellent Francis Bacon Band (Columbus), Duke Junior and The Smokey Boots, and Whale Zombie... thanks to Chris Lute and Max from Brown Town for chatting with me.

OU EMC Spring Sampler

Ohio's Electronic Music Club has released another great sampler of chill beats and IDM. Looking forward to getting familiar with this one as Waeward's "By the Cosmic Shore" has been stuck in my head since the last sampler dropped.

Aquabear Legion Volume 4

A while ago I contributed to this Aquabear Legion Volume 4 compilation on Kickstarter; I've been listening to it non-stop and it's a really great eclectic mix that makes me miss living in such a music-crazed community. It includes a a bunch of tracks from Athens/Columbus bands that played the Spacement: Seascapes, Valleyboys, She Bears, In Silent Movies and Monolithic Cloud Parade. It also features one of my favorite tracks I produced for Whale Zombie's debut LP, Nu Surf.

Walk The Moon at Sweetlife

Walk The Moon is headlining the Sweetlife Festival at Merriweather Post Pavilion May 1st! A mere year ago they played a free show in the Spacement! Check out some live footage from the show!

A few lyrics that resonated with my experience last year and that show in particular:
we tore up the walls, we slept on couches
we lifted this house, we lifted this house

what can i say? this house is falling apart
we got no money, but we got heart

Brick Beats

I'm quoted on page 38 of the premiere issue of Brick Beats Magazine, dedicated to providing an independent look at music in Athens. The thorough article by Allison Maloney features an in-depth look at Athens' house-show culture including references to October's Morguefest, Millions of Michael Jordan's and a neat shot of Whale Zombie.

The Playground's keepers and O'Hearn attribute some inspiration to the success of the Spacement, a now defunct basement venue that left big shoes to fill after going on hiatus following noise violations late last year. Andrew Logan, tenant and organizer of the Spacement during the 2009-2010 school year, spoke candidly of the dozens of shows he helped throw, but remained respectfully in tune with the requirements of the noise ordinance.
"To be super legit, plan bands earlier and deejays later, considering drums are the loudest instrument," Logan suggested, "and have trash cans available. Seriously." Where there is fun to be found, responsibility and support are necessary. Sitting next to me in the basement of The Plaground Logan cracked a grin while expressing all the fun he has had making ordinary strangers dance like maniacs. His birthday celebration, thrown in January, was the Spacement's only exhibition of music so far this year, boasting seven deejays and over 100 guests.

Spacement: Return of The DJs

Saturday night me and Delurium (Columbus) celebrated my 23rd birthday by hosting the final dance party at The Spacement. Additional grooves provided by Sixseed, Conco, BUSTEDbass, and DJ Technician. Here's a picture of me (Anlog, a.k.a. DJ Fett) encasing the dance floor in carbonite (credit Scott Southwick). Conco wins the best dressed prize for his faithful homage to C-3P0.
