Atlantis Setlist [04.04.08]

After getting our hopes up for what was looking to be the first *really* nice Friday night of the year, weather-wise, and hearing from two or three hands-fulla-fingers-not-counting-thumbs worth of friends that they'd be showing up at Japone for Atlantis, jukebox_heroine and I were informed rather late in the game that we'd been bumped in favor of some faggoty frat fandango.

Down (but not out), we decided to go ahead and host Atlantis at my place, to coincide with the arrival of our dear friend caligulette, who'd been very disappointed to learn that Atlantis was canceled on the night she was arriving in town. We threw out a subtle invite to all of our Atlantis regulars, those who'd mentioned they were planning on coming to Japone, and some friends who'd met Radha during her last visit, in hopes of reproducing the same sort of chilled out vibe we strive for in our usual digs.

It was fucking great! We kicked off the music a little before 10pm, shortly after the arrival of our first few guests, and kept churning out the tunes for around 6 hours, finally winding down as the cow jumped over the moon at around 4am. It was such a great time, in fact, that if we have to endure any more last minute oustings, we might just throw home parties at our leisure from now on and give Japone the boot.

My mind is entirely too addled with late afternoon work humbuggery and pre-Caps-game angst (not to mention a killer case of CRS -- no, not Chronic Rhinosinusitis, but CAN'T REMEMBER SHIT!) to attempt to reconstruct the entire evening as I ususally do when posting our setlists, but I would like to offer thanks to all of those my memory is kind enough to recall, and if I fail to include you here, please remember me kindly anyway when I'm a-floatin' down the river Styx...american_arcane, carolyncasl, cisic, clintjcl, Rachel T, Tracy, Chris, the missing-key allstar-DJ guy from Northern England who later passed out in Rachel's car at the Double-T diner, littlesuitepee, phir, droidboy010101, rosered2318, Smrz, Markusha (a.k.a. The Jackal), the_udjat, kittenofwrath, Kelli Biggs, her buddy Jack, my lovely DJ-partner jukebox_heroine, our guest of honor and latest DC import, caligulette, and my sweet sixties siren & lovely co-host, entropicalia.

If this setlist doesn't have you beggin' like a beagle with a heroin-heavy jerky-jones to be added to the eVite the next time we're hosting our hoedown in the Heights (or draggin' yer ass out to Japone for as long as we may be emittin' our frequencies there), well, hellfire...I may just buy an iPod and keep all the good shit fer meself! ;-)

Atlantis Setlist [03.21.08]

Our biggest and best party of 2008 took place the Friday before last, and I've been too bus/laz-y to tell the tale and post the extra-long-extended-dance-remix of a setlist...until now. My buddy (and co-Captain of my ice hockey team) Tony brought his brother's posse over for drinks after they'd finished with the rehearsal dinner for his (the brother's) wedding (which took place the following day)...and the way this crew put away drinks, I'm surprised any of them made it to the ceremony! We kicked things off an hour early at their request, and stuck around until a little after 2 a.m., so we had just over five hours behind the decks in what was our longest continuous jam in Atlantis history. Tony's party weren't the only folks on hand to experience this madness, though...we were joined by Charlotte & Scott who swung by to chat and listen to some tunes after enjoying a magnificent meal at Bistrot Du Coin, and entropicalia & rosered2318, who arrived just in time for the classic rock block in my second set. All in all, a very good night, and a nice memory to tide us over until we're back at Japone again on April 18th.

REPEAT: No Atlantis at Japone for the next two Fridays!

Anyone who bothers to read this and has any interest in checking out the first ever Atlantis-at-home featuring jukebox_heroine and myself tomorrow evening can contact me privately at puppykisser AT yahoo DOT com for further details.

Atlantis Setlist [03.14.08]

Wacky adventures last week...shot over to Japone after watching the Caps kick the crap out of the Thrashers from the comfort of some corporate box MAB managed to get us into. Megumi was sligning green saketinis from the get-go and jukebox_heroine kicked us off with a terrific 1st set. We met a nice young lady named Sade (like the sultry songstress), with whom I shot the shit for a bit. Will dropped was really nice to see him after a few weeks away. steeltoe dragged himself out to share one last Friday with us. He's getting ready to fuck off to Boston, and I'll miss the bastard and our impromptu trips to Rosecroft or Waffle House or Montreal. Actually, his relocation will give us an excuse to fire up the latter on that list again some time before too long. Fortunately, apocalypticfb and Biff were also on hand to provide Ben with some tips on getting by up in Beantown. They kept us company for a good, long while and unleashed some well-deserved chiding when our musical selections veered off in awful directions. This happened a bunch later in the night, as a mildly drunken and mischievous MAB materialized after enjoying some drinks at Rosa Mexicana with the folks who'd hosted us at the Caps game. He was eager to plunder and ended up taking a few turns on the decks, with near-Rick-Astleyan results! If you think you can stomach it, read on...
