The Payback is back on! This month we have special guest DJ M.Ake bringing a fantastic mix of oldies tunes. You’ve probably heard M.Ake over at John Colins with his DJ partner Beto. Their event, “The Long Long Summer“, is a great time if you want a sharp drink and fun music for your listening (or dancing!) pleasure.
And to combine my love of music, dancing, and classic films, I will showcase some classic detective flicks on the big screen. Come out this friday and check it out! Bound to be a good time.
First, thanks to everyone who made it out to Monarch last night to jam with us! We had a great time dancing and enjoying the music and I’m looking forward to more in the future. And second, major props to DJ Keybumps for the great selection of tunes! I had a blast last night listening to him spin and I know many patrons did. The last hour was especially fun since the room was packed with dancers, including a special guest appearance by DJ Primo (Oldies Night) who hilariously battled my friend Ben.
But due to the hectic running around and anxiety that comes with throwing a new event, I made a mistake; I forgot to bring my heavy duty camera. Regardless, I took about a dozen shots with my handy point-and-shoot and these five shots (below) were the least blurry. I’m only marginally upset I didn’t get any shots of the dance floor near the end of the night. Next time for sure.
I’m starting a new dance party at The Monarch Lounge called The Payback. A once-a-month soul and funk jam for you and your partner. Dj Keybumps will be joining me on the decks to kick this event off with style. And of course we’ll only be playing those sweet little singles we have grown to love here at The 45 Brains.
Here’s the first of a series of posters made by yours truly:
