New Playlist - And Controversy over Alternative Music


The downloadable PDF will show you what I played last Wednesday:

Jan 28, 09 at Cowboy Monkey(PDF)

There was an alternative set midway:

As far as response, it seemed to me that this set had a good majority of people out on the dance floor.
But I received an interesting series of comments.

One guy came up to me in frustration, just before the last song started, and said "Please, Joe, would you play some real music? I want to dance with [Ms. X] and I can't do it to this stuff." I asked him to be patient. The set was almost over, and I pointed to the floor and said "Look, they are all enjoying it." He left the DJ booth agitated, no doubt fearing that he would never get a chance to dance with her that night. (But he did, and afterwards said how wonderful it was.)

A second guy came up after the set finished, saying what a wonderful set that was, and thanking me, and asking me to send him the titles of the tracks played. He repeated his thanks several times before he left at the end of the night.

So, you make one person happy, another person sad.
