I’m a co-promoter and resident DJ at Shadowplay, which is a goth party that happens every fourth Saturday of the month at the Grand Star in Chinatown. It’s a really fun time, if I do say so myself. We’ve only been around for a few months, but we’ve managed to somehow get a cool group of regulars and new people coming in for every party.
I think I still have this Ride album on cassette too.
Every Friday night, Underground goes down at the Grand Star in Chinatown. I’m a rotating resident there, meaning that I play every few weeks. It’s a really fun party with a nice mix of music and crowd. This past Friday, I got to do play the warm up set, which I love because I can play stuff that probably won’t do really well in the middle of the night. I got to play later on as well, with middle-of-the-night and closing set to follow. Check out the set lists.
My records from last night.
Last night, I headed down to Club Berlin, a fun indie and ’80s dance party at Alpine Village, with a crate full of vinyl. I played two sets.
Want to hit the dance floor? I’ll be playing vinyl tonight and tomorrow at two different clubs in the L.A. area.

Los Animales is back. Today marks the beginning of Nadarave, the second story in the webcomic series that I created with my pal Jeaux Janovsky. I’m really excited about this story. It’s a little different from Fours on the Floor, our first chapter, in that it’s more of an ensemble piece. The characters look a little different too. That’s because we didn’t want the designs to get too static. You’ll see Manda, Dani, Pedro and the rest evolve throughout the series.
If you haven’t read Fours on the Floor, you should do that too.
In other news, I have two DJ gigs coming up this week. On Thursday, I’ll be playing at Zerox. This is a monthly club at La Cuevita (aka Little Cave) in Highland Park hosted by my pal Eric Dead. We’ll be playing a mix of underground ’80s tunes ranging from punk to new wave to ska to psychobilly. I’ll be digging up some of my favorites and hope to play at least a few jams that you haven’t heard in a while. This party is free. It’s also 21+. Check out the Facebook invite for more information.
On Saturday, I will be playing at DEadCADENCE, a monthly party at Roberto’s in Chinatown that focuses on death rock, minimal synth, post-punk, etc. I’ll be joining DJs Tony-X, Andy Smith and Juann Alternativah. There will also be live performances from Death Strip and Secret Society of the Sonic Six. This will be a very exciting show and I hope you can make it. This is a 21+ party and the cover is $5 before 10:30 p.m., $7 thereafter. More info on Facebook.
