Art Battle 17

Art Battle 17 is approaching, and it will be one of my last for a while. I missed 16 for school, and will probably miss every Tuesday Art Battle until next Summer…sigh.

I will be at the Queen West Art Crawl gala in September/October though.

Art Battle 17 will be the last time I offer my “come home” CD.  It’s about a lot of personal stuff that happened over a year ago; time to move on.  I will continue to offer it as a download only, for $5 on my site.

Fresh off the heels of our wildly successful romp in the suburbs:

Art Battle at the Varley Recap

On February 9, 2011, in djing, music, by holotape

Wow.  We rocked the suburbs.  Nearly 500 people of all ages attended and we all had a fantastic time.

Things I learned:

  • High-school-aged volunteers can get you beer if you send them to the bar with a note
  • Bartenders love DJs
  • Old ladies can still wink
  • They have never heard of Justice in the suburbs, but they now love them
  • People are seemingly more enthusiastic about new art and new music in the suburbs
  • DJing from above the crowd will draw the eyes of everyone in the room
  • DJing from above the crowd puts you closer to the really hot lights
  • I love having a 720-watt subwoofer at my feet

I bought my first painting, and I’m quite excited about it.  It was painted by the very talented Morgan Booth, a friend and Art Battle team member.  It’s really incredible that this was painted in 20 minutes, while dancing:

Anyway, a big thank-you to the staff at the Varley and all of my Art Battle teammates.  Truly a great night.
