i saw dinosaur jr. back in the day (all right, way way back in the day) when i djed at einstein’s. amazing live band. no one deserves this, least of all an amazing guitar god like j mascis.


  1. You dj’d at Einstien’s? Wow…..I actually went there a bunch with some of your, er, “co-workers back in the day”. Nice place. Fetchin Bones had my favorite shows there. Hope all is well, besides you’re cranky. Weather looks nice there today…..go to Central Park…..walk to the Apple Store….just go outside and get some nice fresh air.

  2. hey there brooks!

    the weather was, indeed, nice. i guess you should know ; )

    fetchin bones rocked. i loved hope and her big trunk o’junk. they were the most fun band ever. i djed there from about ’87 to ’90, but went there a lot before that. there, and milkbar (djed there too), and that place with the stainless steel dance floor that i can’t remember its name. and all of the other alternative music clubs in north florida. for a few years there, i was out every night and didn’t sleep much.

    i have a million great stories from that place. i need to start mixing a few in, when i can’t think of anything else to say.

    hope philly is treating you well…thanks for stopping by.
