Kenna had been at the party for two reasons; to be distracted and to get drunk. But the people there were cookie cutter boring and although she was crossfaded, she couldn’t stand to be around them. She had tried to leave for over thirty minutes, but couldn’t find her purse through her haze and had found herself outside on the grass instead, staring at the stars counting all the constellations she could. Deciding she needed another drink, Kenna got up, bumping into another person by accident. “Jesus, fuck I’m sorry–”
the weight of two years passing since the loss of my best friend finally hit me so here I am at Denny’s. I’m glad no one asked me in 2013 where I saw myself in two years ‘cause “at a Denny’s in Concord at 3 AM” would have been a really embarrassing answer. “La Bamba” is playing in here and some crossfaded dude is making up lyrics about pancakes and singing along and he’s all like “no one knows the fuckin words to this song dude” and I don’t know man I just came here for the hashbrowns
Throwing an impromptu rave has never been easier. The Numark DJ2Go ($60) is a small — think keyboard-sized — DJ controller that connects to your laptop over USB, letting you DJ an entire set using real controls while carrying nothing more than your laptop bag. Features include two platters, a crossfader, pitch and level, Deck A, Deck B, Master, and Headphone gain controls, and compatibility with nearly any MIDI-compliant software. Finally, a reasonable excuse to bring your laptop with you to the club.
Sorry for the last minute notice: Selections from Schaeffer | Crossfaderwill be on display at Error Plain Gallery [1932 South Halsted #206, Chicago], Friday April 11. Works from Younbin Choi and Ian Mitchell Wallace will also be part of this Second Friday exhibition. One night only.
