OCTOBER 20, 2008 PARTY BEN HEADS FOR THE LONE STAR STATE; PLUS TOTALLY OBVIOUS NEW TRACK Only slightly less obvious than the totally obvious old tracks. While my pseudo-fame as a DJ may be rather thin (and rapidly getting thinner), it's nice to know that it's, um, wide. It was just a few weeks ago that I headed to the land of socialized medicine and Arcade Fire for a couple of super-fun gigs (belated thanks, by the way, to Thanos and everybody at Cheval & West, and to Team Canada and the Blue Dog crew). Now, coming up in two weeks, I'll head to its cultural polar opposite: the gun-totin' oil derrick-strewn wilds of Texas. Although being from Nebraska, I suppose I don't get to be a snob, now do I.
Anyhoo, everybody in Dallas/Fort Worth and Houston, revise your Halloween-weekend plans to include some Party Ben-oriented festivities: Thursday night at Lotus in Dallas, Friday night at Bambou in Houston, and then a special Party Ben Alive video set at Venue in Houston on Saturday night. Jeez, and I said Party Ben Alive might be retired! Well, shucks, if M.I.A. can unretire then Party Ben Alive can too. Details on the Events page.
Also, I made a new track that's so obvious I figure I better get it posted before somebody else gets the idea and does it better than me:
So, there's that. It is what it is. I promise I've actually been working on some other stuff too, even a slightly larger project, but I'm having a bit of "remixer's block" in that department so who knows. It's just nice anybody checks this web site at all, really.
