I went to a Round Robin party at the CopyCat building tonight. The deal was, there were a few bands and they would each play a song, the lights would go out, go on again pointing at another band, and they would play a song. What was cool about it was there were different types of music there. This dude Dan Deacon who lives in the apartment played. I kinda dissed this dude when he opened for Grand Buffet at the Ottobar, but seeing him in his own element he wasn't as bad. Picture the class clown from Middle School if he got a drum machine for Christmas and went apeshit on it. His first couple songs were actually catchy but then he just scarting making a lot of screechy twirly-whirly noises and shit. It was annoying. There was also this rapper Height who I like a lot, he performed with his buddy Bow & Arrow who I work with. Pretty good, but they didn't do that many songs.
Shodekeh was there doing beatbox. He teamed up with a couple saxaphones for some songs. They played "Ain't No Sunshine When She's Gone" and it was great. Some band was playing punk rock but they had a drum machine doing club beats, and it was actually real cool. I wish I knew their name. There were some other bands I had never heard of plus this MICA band Ponytail, which is just real twitchy noise music.
The audience was real supporting of everything, even when they shouldn't have been. Plus somebody drank our beers when we weren't looking. It was a pretty live crowd but I think the reason they liked all this stuff was cause it's okay to dance really badly to music that's undanceable. A couple times they had a little pit going, and this one dude wanted us to lift him up so he could crowd surf. With this crowd though, it was more like me and my roomate just picked him up and dropped him on the people next to us. It was all love at the Copycat tonight though, and I'm glad I had fun at this party so I have something else to remember aside from that place being a crappy place to live.
I copped the new Streets album. The shit is dope. More on that later.
