(Update: part of the attendance issue at this event may’ve been the stupid, stupid name I came up with for the night. Why did no one tell me? Thanks to Amy, Fred, Claire, Michael and Eric for coming down and to the 24 people who asked, “how did that spin go?”)

Spin

Hmm, how’d this happen?

Tonight, I’ll be spinning records at my favorite new(ish) club in town, The Atomic Cowboy: 9 p.m.-close, 4140 Manchester, www.atomic-cowboy.com. From here on, every fourth Wednesday, same time and place. Plus some slots at other joints; those’ll be announced as they come.

It’s 1997, all over again.
