This was my first gig after Prince died. I decided that the world had probably heard enough Purple Rain and 1999 by then so I slid some lesser known stuff into a mostly pop set, Trojan Horse-style. Things went well until 3:10:15 when, with a dancefloor full of college kids, the old and eccentric owner barged into the booth and told me to stop playing "so much Hip Hop". To give you a visual, imagine if Robert Durst from the Jinx busted into your job telling you to do...anything. If you've ever seen the Jinx, you understand how odd that situation could be. I decided a year had been long enough, finished up the gig, got paid, and bounced. It's been a fun year. The managers and staff were awesome. I can juggle old people, young people, gay people, straight people, black people, and white people all at the same time. Add a moronic and unpredictable owner and I'm stumped. Props to the next DJ at that place, it's a tough gig. I killed it tho.

I went by DJ alt.rock for 10 years as a tongue-in-cheek diss at lazy rock & roll radio program directors "discovering" '90s alternative rock in the late aughts. DJ alt.rock was also a nod to early rap names that usually contained either "rock" or "ski"... Never in a million years did I imagine that the prefix "alt-" would be so drastically ruined by a former reality TV clown, but that's exactly what happened in 2016/17... I've done my best to clear that name from as many mixes and artwork as possible, but some sets have so many alt.rock DJ-drops in them that I've opted to just post this notice and keep it moving. From now on, I'm using my first name, because nobody can mess it up (other than myself).
