getting on the plane to europe now for some pre-yule action: eating of food, seeing of family and friends, and the final bell of 2013 for me, the london Despacio gigs. i've packed 5 dj bags full of records into some very awkward and heavy suitcases, and i'm carrying more with me onto the plane... dave and steph will likely have MORE than that, as they, well, have crazy records, and live in europe, so it's not as much of a ball-buster for them. anyway, it's shaping up to be very very special. we'll be playing from BEFORE the doors open (which is the only way to make sure no one has to walk in first and be, like, "uh oh--too early") and until we have to stop... there's no "warm-up". it's all "warm-up". we're the warm-up, i guess.
workshop will be doing coffee so you can stay alert (legally) and clove club will be doing the bar, so you can stay mushy (...), and there may even be some snacks...
i'm honestly really excited about these gigs. we've worked so hard to put them together, and we've put a lot of ourselves into making them RIGHT. i know people are impatient, and write things like "bring despacio to boise NOW!!", and we appreciate it, but it's such a massive system, and so hard to transport, that we're having to be quite thoughtful about the sequence of travel for the beast, if that makes any sense. and it's no joke cost-wise to move... this is a pure labor of love for the three of us (which is another way of saying "money loser") and we're trying to get it to you everywhere we can!
maybe we need one of those crowd sourcing things where people can vote/bid to bring it to their city? or maybe we'll find a reclusive billionaire who's really, like REALLY, into hi fi dance music, and want's to spread it around the globe?
until then, we're moving it slowly.
so come see us when you can. i promise it's really friendly and fun. it's not huge. it's a reasonable amount of people. they're nice. they dance. they don't get all aggro on you or anything.
the friday and saturday nights are sold out, but there still seems to be some tickets for the thursday, so come out!!! fuck work on friday! it's a half ass day anyway!
