Right Round / Mousetrap 2-for-1 special - setlist and commentary

Dudes - I had a blast. there were over 850 peeps in attendance for DJ Mark Zimin's and my 2-for-1 special last Saturday. Yippee!

Highlights?

Um, 850 peeps.

Also, toward the end of the night, you may have seen me oddly and quickly swoop down toward the floor behind the decks, and you just might'a said to yourself, "why is dj lil'e swoopin' toward the floor so rapid-like? don't she know that it's cramped back there, and she might just hurt herself?"

Yeah. Um, well, because I went ass over teakettle... strappy bondage pants, spike heels and dancing DO NOT MIX. Take the lesson. And say a little prayer of thanks that I didn't break my face on my turntable, wouldya?
