Tomorrow, we are hosting our second Mix Tape Speed Dating party at Dos Segundos. Sign-in is at 6:30pm, the first round starts at 7pm and it goes until 9pm. Click here for an entire overview as I answer some FAQs. Feel free to come earlier and jump in on some happy hour specials.
The theme of the night is '90s emo/pop-punk and I have to say that this party is one of the ones I'm most excited about. I grew up on this stuff. I interviewed some of these bands for my zine, I blasted them from my car stereo, I put them on mix tapes for boys I had crushes on; they were in my teenage blood. Avail, Lifetime, Bouncing Souls, Jawbreaker, Jimmy Eat World, Plow United, Weston, Rancid, Rainer Maria, Joan of Arc, Screeching Weasel, Hot Water Music, Sunny Day Real Estate, Get Up Kids, Saves the Day, The Promise Ring, Less Than Jake; all of these bands (and more) will be played. If I was a dj, without a doubt these would be the bands I'd play on my night. If you're a fan of this stuff, please come out. It's gonna be radical. Click on the image below to sign up.
ALSO, due to popular demand, our next mix tape speed party taking place on Thursday, October 8th has been moved from the Cantina to the Khyber. We are gonna play '90s indie rock for that one. Sweet! Mark yer calendars.
