Every last Saturday of the month at The Ace Hotel Palm Springs

Last weekend The Coachella Valley Art Scene and I hosted our monthly World Famous party at The Ace Hotel Palm Springs. It was my last DJ set in the valley before my performance at Coachella 2011. Epidemic Skateshop was in the house. It was the official release party for the Epidemic x Alf Alpha Sunglass (aka Hater Blockers). It was a awesome night! I had a blast pley’n for all the party people. Thank you to The Ace Staff and Everyone that came out. Shout out to everyone that was getting down on the dance floor. If you missed the night or want to relive the night, you can download the last two and a half hours of my DJ set below.

Nick Waterhouse and The Turn-Keys - Aside: Some Place & Bside: That Place

I recently saw Nick Waterhouse and Tarots at The Echo a few weeks day. They rocked the fuckin house down. They are the next generation of West Coast Funk/Soul music. My friend Nattlesnake is one of the singers in the group and writes some of the songs. Check out video of them performing at the echo.

I had to pick of two copies of this 45.
