PB AliveFEBRUARY 28, 2008
PARTY BEN ALIVE COMES TO LOS ANGELES
Still no sign of light-up pyramid. Miss the first, er, "performance" of Party Ben Alive, the Multimedia Spectacularrr, back in January? Well Los Angelenos will have a chance to see me play videos and stuff this Saturday night at Bootie LA, which triumphantly returned to the Echo earlier this year. I've made a couple changes to the show, and still don't really have any idea how I'm going to set up the video screens, but we'll figure it out and hopefully it will be super awesome. To celebrate, let's post one more of the videos I made, this one for a new mashup I put together specifically for the vaguely Daft Punk-inspired performance:

Daft Punk vs. Nirvana - "Smells Stronger"

Wow, perhaps the two most mashed-up songs ever in history (outside of Eminem's "Without Me"), "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and "Harder Better Faster Stronger." My excuse is that it was for the show, and hopefully people get that it's kind of a cheeky take on Nirvana mashups; close listeners will recognize that I'm directly referencing McSleazy's editing in "Billie Spirit." See, I'm being cute. Like a kitten.

Neon NoiseAlso, if you can't make it out to the Echo on Saturday night but find yourself in reach of a radio or the intertubes, tune them into Indie 103.1 FM from midnight to 1am (that's technically Sunday morning 3/2) when I'll have a guest mix on Paul V's electro show, Neon Noise, which he keeps reminding me is not called "Neon Nights," even though I keep saying that because I'm dumb. Paul's been doing a good job staying on top of the new electro jams over there, and while I'm all about the beats, I also can't help but put different vocals over everything, so expect a bit of an electro/mashup headspinner with a bunch of new stuff I'm enjoying.

Next week I'll post mp3s of the mixes as well as more of the actual tracks from Party Ben Alive, so, you know, stay tuned, and see you in LA!
