GET LEI’D @ Mike B’s Birthday Party JAN 29 in Seattle

Posted in Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 13, 2010 by worldromper

That’s right, I’m promoting one of my best friend’s birthday parties on my blog!

If you live in Seattle, you know who Michael B is, and there’s a damn good chance you’ve partied in his loft. Possibly multiple times, possibly multiple days.

He is more than a man, he is a theory. Mike B is a way of life.

And he’s celebrating his birthday Friday January 29 in Seattle to the tune of hundreds of party people. You are invited.

It will be a wicked ruckus, a collection of “pimp motherfuckers and lovely ladies” at one of the bigger dance clubs in Seattle, Club Heaven, located in Pioneer Square.

Akin to the always popular techno luau, but more like an everything luau, the party christened “GET LEI’D,” will have a Polynesian theme served with a buffet of beats: dirty dirty house music, dubstep, glitch hop, breaks, FLORIDA breaks, TRIBAL breaks, dark techno and a lot more– enough to grill a pig over. OH AND a Sublime cover band– you guys probably don’t know any of the words to their songs.

Two rooms of action will also showcase a Tahitian dance troupe and their hula dancing, not to mention my friends the GoMeansGo go go dancers. Say that five times fast. Then get in the conga line, or do the limbo, but don’t miss the $4 Long Island Iced Teas, Blue Hawaiians, Sea Breezes and Pina Coladas. I can hear the ocean now.

Door discounts for bikini tops and Hawaiian shirts; you can get on the $8 RSVP list here and read all the details on the FB event page here.

LINEUP!!!

  • Flave
  • PrEssHa
  • Jimni
  • SoulKid
  • Jisaan
  • Goner
  • CreepyTom
  • Godfather
  • Maria

AND MY FAVORITE PART: I will be there, my friends. So come to the party, have a Mai Tai, stay high, say hi to me and:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MICHAEL B!

Salutations to the Soul at the Church of BASS

Posted in Events, Music News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 25, 2009 by worldromper

The Transcendent Church of Bass is one of my favorite venues in Seattle, from the giant Andrew Jones artwork over the stage to the double toilet in the ladies’ room upstairs to the red cushion tent to the juice bar to the tiny little smoking patio. The energy here is always positive, the vibe is on and I have spent many happy nights spinning on the dance floor.

This Saturday night the Church of Bass is having a fundraiser called Salutations to the Soul to raise money for a new floor for their donation-based community yoga and meditation program.

Fifteen local electronic music crews are coming out to rock out two stages, one uptempo and one downtempo- check out this lineup:

  • Knowa Knowone
  • Lotus Drops
  • Andrew Luck vs. Dosadi
  • Ramiro
  • Kristina Childs
  • Rhines
  • Rob Noble
  • Jisaan
  • Jon Glist
  • Osiris Indriya
  • Nordic Soul
  • Waater Maark
  • Sweet Beets
  • Dope Labs
  • Crispy
  • Menami
  • Skoi Sirius
  • Jmeshelle

The benefit starts at 8PM with music and a silent art auction; suggested cover is $20 so come out to party with friends and support your community, and see the difference you can make!

MEMENTO: Boat Cruise in Memory of Tyler Douglas Brown aka Tyler B Yall

Posted in Events, Note to Readers with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2009 by worldromper

Tyler Brown brought so much laughter into the world; he was one of those unique individuals whose goofy antics, fearless quirks and smiling face always made me smile, whether I was hanging out with him on dust-covered blankets at outdoor parties, chillin’ at the Produkt Dance Studio as the day dripped by, or ripping up the dance floors of Pioneer Square together. Even from LA, his hilariously weird Myspace status updates brought plenty of giggles to my life, as I could picture his face as he talked about glass toast and Typhoid Mary’s razor.

My friend’s status is now final. Rest in peace, Tyler B. A boat cruise will soon be sailing to raise money for his family, a small comfort but a benefit nonetheless. MEMENTO is brought to you by Produkt, Kryptonight and Rockit Science and sets sail June 14th and features the beats of Wheelz, Myk, Soundwave, Jisaan, Andrew Luck, Sonny Chiba, Von Dewey, and Nick MC.

Proceeds from the $10 cover will go entirely to the family; bar is cash only and the Islander boat can be found at 1611 Fairview Avenue in Seattle. Boarding is at 1PM; the boat departs at 3PM sharp and will return at 7PM.

Bring your respects, your friends, and your smile- because no one loved a party like Tyler, and this is one boat not to miss.

I am getting really fucking sick of writing up blog posts about benefit events for the families of my dead friends. This sucks.

iloveyoutylerbrownrestinpeacemyfriendTyler leads the party parade at Build Up for Operation Apex; following behind him are dozens of people carrying speakers and other gear to set up for the outdoor, one of the best parties of the year.

R.I.P. Tyler Brown, and watch out for the one-eyed one-horned flying purple people-eater.
