Show at Triangles in Moncton, February 11th

Tonight was a great night. Much better than I had expected. I got an ear infection on Wednesday and I was a little nervous that I wouldn't be able to hear very well for tonight's show, but it cleared up quickly with an overdose of antibiotics. Happy birthday to my friend Emily! And Nick, it was great to see you again.

The only real drawback of the night was that I intended to play a full set of tribal and progressive house, but because I was switching tracks too quickly, I was running out of music by the end of the night (I was the only DJ for the evening). It should not be possible to have thirty-seven progressive/house tracks take less than three hours, but I guess that I did edit everything earlier this afternoon and cut out all of the breakdowns, making all the tracks shorter. Anyway, I was getting a few requests for some top40 near the end of the night, so I actually decided to switch gears and move into top40 for the last twenty minutes, rather than playing some shitty progressive tracks that I had panned earlier in the evening. Here's the set list:

36. Stars On 45 - Stars On 45 (Olav Basoski Remix).
37. Black Project - Rasputin (Simioli & Black Original Mix).

At this point, I was running out of music because I was switching between tracks a bit too fast, so I ended up digging into the mainstream crate. The dance floor loved it, but that wasn't my intention at the start of the night. Anyway, I'm not going to list those because there were only a few and I can't remember exactly what I played, maybe "Tetris" by Electrixx, "The Time/Dirty Bit" by BEP, "Dynamite" by Taio Cruz, "Raise Your Glass" by Pink, and "C'mon" by Tiesto/Diplo. First time I've ever played a Tiesto track in a live set, I think. I feel like there might have been one or two more tracks in there, but I can't remember.

I finished the night with "Sprawl 2 (Mountains Beyond Mountains)" by the Arcade Fire.

Sorry, but I didn't record this set. However, I do have a photo that Ian Allen (my sound tech and all-around support staff) took while I was DJ'ing. As usual, I'm screaming out the lyrics to a song, from the looks of things. Not that I usually play songs with a lot of lyrics, but when I do, I can usually count on coming home with no voice:

Triangles is located at 234 St. George Street in Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. Big thanks to Stella & Nadine and the rest of the staff for such a warm welcome, as always ...
