The beat don't stop
Dear bad ass mother fuckers,
I am so freakin' tired still from the Feather River Campout but it was totally worth the energy, drive and time. I played a dubstep set and then a couple hours later played a funky breaks set on Saturday. Sunday I played a 4 hour house set starting with techno, tech house and minimal and then moved to electro cuz it's so easy. I impressed some Friends and Family which is good because I would love to play their main campout.
In other news I just started a new job at an organic pie an ice cream shop called Chili Pies some come on by! I needed a little steady job and I'm still working as a stage hand with Stage 2 Design as well.
And on to the fun:
Lots of gigs are randomly popping up which is awesome because things had slowed down to almost nothing earlier. Here is the down low low down:
