Last night was the Krush Girls DJing at the 40 Watt. We were early and there was like 8 people there, which was sort of uncomfortable. Craig had a Blue Hawaiian, which I don't recommend anybody gets at the 40 Watt. Within an hour the place was pretty jumpin'. The Krush Girls spin a variety of stuff, from '60s and '70s funk and soul to '80s pop and hip hop, and some more recent stuff, too. The two guys that comprise the Krush Girls really enjoy themselves, hopping around like lunatics. Last night they were both decked out in vintage Run DMC t-shirts. It was a lot of fun. I don't really dance, so I just hung out and drank Lone Stars and watched folks have a good time.
Today we had brunch at Five and Ten, which is quite tasty, and a lot cheaper than we expected. Afterwards we drove around a bit, and stopped downtown at this flea market-ish shop. I bought beat up copies of Alice Cooper's Billion Dollar Babies and the Hollies' Words and Music by Bob Dylan, which, as you might have guessed is all Dylan covers. It's post-Graham Nash Hollies, but it should be worth the $1.70 that I paid for it. Heather got a bunch of Elvis Costello records in great condition, and some other stuff, including a copy of Lloyd Cole and the Commotions' Rattlesnakes. This store was also selling Steve Keane* paintings for upwards of $15, which is a 500% markup compared to what they used to cost when we bought some in New York.
This Daylight savings thing has screwed me up. I can't remember which clocks I changed, so I keep second guessing the time.
*Steve Keane is a Brooklyn-based painter who sells his work for really cheap. Indie rock fans may be familiar with his work on the cover of Pavement's Wowee Zowee.
