I wanted to let you know about a huge event coming up at the Gypsy Coffee House on April 1st.
(By the way, even though it's on April Fool's Day, I promise this is not a joke.)
Saturday, April 1st, 2006
at the Gypsy Coffee House
DJ Badger and DJ TMJ
BIKINI POP FIASCO
Another kickass BIKINI DANCE PARTY
from the same sick freaks who brought you
RETRO WITHOUT SHAME
MARY-KATE AND ASHLEY TURN 18
This is going to be the biggest and most "charmingly seductive" party (ha!) that the Gypsy has had since last July's "Retro Without Shame" event... and both TMJ and I are really looking forward to it.
The music will range from 1980s tracks up through modern-age pop fluff. A little bit of it will be obscure, but the majority will be "recognizable" tunes. Of course, there will be plenty of extremely rare remixes played. The music could range from that of Siouxsie and the Banshees to Gwen Stefani. From Deee-Lite to the White Stripes. From New Order to the Killers, from Technotronic to the Bloodhound Gang, from the Beastie Boys to the Black Eyed Peas. And, of course, there will be some Depeche Mode. :) Some pop, some techno, some trance... but all of it will be dance
music. TMJ and I have been talking a lot about the potential track listing, and it looks like this party's going to be a doozy.
The main event on April 1st will begin at 9:00 PM. That's when the house lights will go down and my set will begin - running until about 2:00 AM. However, for those of you who would like to experience something special beforehand, TMJ will be doing a "seductive [mainly] downtempo warm-up set" from 5:00 PM - 8:00 PM, to kind of "set the mood."
Plus, I have even more good news... I have added numerous new light effects to our already colossal light effects system, so this event will be even more visually stunning than the last Gypsy events that we've DJed.
Now, I know what a lot of you may be thinking... "BUT BADGER, APRIL 1st is when teh DEATH CAB show is!" Unfortunately, I didn't know about the Death Cab for Cutie show until after I'd already scheduled Bikini Pop Fiasco. However, it is my understanding that the Death Cab show sold out in under 24 hours, so hopefully we'll still get a lot of people. Plus, considering how late our party is scheduled to last, hopefully word of Bikini Pop Fiasco will spread enough that there will be some "after-party" crowds wandering in from after the Death Cab show.
The last Gypsy/Badger party, "Retro Without Shame," was an absolute blast, but this time around I want it to be even bigger. I want to have such a massive crowd that we blow that one completely out of the water. I would be absolutely thrilled to be playing to a thoroughly packed house of waving, gyrating bodies - just a sea of partygoers having a great time. So, I cordially invite you all to attend, and bring as many friends as you want!
Although the Gypsy is usually an "all-ages" place, for a number of reasons, this party is only meant for individuals ages 18 AND OVER. There is NO COVER CHARGE... though the Gypsy does request a minimum $2.00 food/drink purchase, which is still dirt cheap. And remember... You don't need to wear a bikini! You just need to show up and enjoy yourselves.
Please check out the Website, and if you have any questions, let me know.
Bikinis are optional, but encouraged.
