DJ traumahound and I were asked to DJ for Karen's 40th birthday party this weekend. We were downstairs at The Astronomer on Middlesex Street, which has undergone rather a change since it was the Shooting Star (final resting place of Club Vagabonds) - they've completely re-arranged everything, and added some rather fine booths around the walls (with separate power points and individual dimmer switches - fancy!). Hooked our decks into the venue's built-in speakers, dimmed the lights, and set to ...

Early sets were intentionally a bit mellower, as people were still arriving, getting food, etc, but later we both had people accusing us of trying to kill them (with a combination of requests, birthday girl picks, and our usual taste), and it seemed like a general success. (With a notable moment when it took one guest six minutes to recognise that we were playing his band's song. And he's the singer.)
