details about my 3316 appearances.
say that I am "hyper" or even "giddy" about the forthcoming events
at 3316 would be somewhat of an understatement. I
have been babbling about the 3316 appearances ever since
I left the restaurant on Thursday night. It has become an almost
unhealthy preoccupation, but hopefully that will manifest itself as extra
dedication in my performances.
- So, what's it like?
Even though I had already been to the place to interview on Thursday
night, on Friday night, I took Lanna up there for dinner. It
was amazing. Lanna
got some kind of beef tenderloin with aged cheese grits and
- a dish
that was quite pricy, but extremely good according to her.
didn't offer an actual entreé that I could eat due to my vegetarianism,
so I tried a serving of their poblano macaroni and cheese - an
accompanied that with an order of "purple fries," named so
because they are cut from a purple African potato, which were served
with a type of red pepper catsup that really worked out well. The
whole thing was an absolute delight.
Big Game Plan.
I know I've already explained what I'm expecting to play as far
as the music goes: Mainly downtempo (essentially trip-hop
with maybe a little ambient thrown in), with an occasional set
of classic house music. It's important to re-emphasize that
this won't be anything like any of the parties I've thrown in the
last few years; I will be working without the fancy light effects
or the big-ass speakers. This will be a minimalistic setup: my
turntables, my CD players, my mixer board, and a microphone. I'll
be using the house sound system, and I won't even expect anybody
to dance. I will essentially be providing background music
for the restaurant - but it's my mission to make sure I'm providing
the best damn restaurant background music in Tulsa. :)
today, I placed a fairly substantial online order for a lot of
additional music. I already had a virtual truckload of trip-hop
and other subgenres of "downtempo" music, but I felt that since
downtempo was the main focus to achieve the overall "lounge" theme,
I would be an
even better DJ if I could provide an even wider range of artists. This
was basically a way of beefing up an already impressive musical
arsenal. (Oh, let's face it; this gave me an excuse to buy
more music and I jumped
at the chance.) So, rest assured that I'll be bringing the
classics like Portishead and Tricky... However, I will also
be bringing a number of tunes that most people have never heard
before, unless they are die-hard downtempo fans willing to scrape
the bowels of the net to find the best stuff out there.
put, this is going to rock, and my fans should definitely arrive
in droves, buy some of this place's incredible food, and kick back
with friends to chill with the background tunes I'm spinning.
3316 = Quite Awesome.
you have a thing for upscale, sophisticated cuisine, 3316 is definitely
a place to go. (I'm
not just saying that because I'm going to be DJing there - it is really good.) It
is a small place, and kind of out-of-the-way... but it's worth
you need more information on the location and my performance times,
I recommend checking out my last Entry here.
sure I'll blog more about this later... Good night!
