DJ setlist: Shenanigans @ Canal 125, London (26/10/13)

I had a wonderful time at Shenanigans last night. A lot of people came together to make the event very special, with great lighting and decorations, impressive costumes amongst those who turned up, many fantastic DJ sets and an awesome live set from Ctrl Alt Del.

One of the really great things about Shenanigans is the variety of genres and styles. It's sort-of a goth night, but the organisers explicitly state that they want this to be a place for different alternative tribes to come together. This was very much the case, with metalheads, ravers, punks, indie kids and others joining the party. The music throughout the night reflected this, with the main unifying theme being an overriding sense of fun.

The other really great thing about Shenanigans was its inclusivity. This was a space for people of all backgrounds (in terms of age, gender, race etc) to feel safe and welcome. Unless I'm at a riot grrrl night, it's rare that I experience an alternative music event with as many women as men, or with individuals of androgynous appearance and trans people casually in attendance and not experiencing any kind of hassle.

My set opened the night. This is often a bit of a quiet slot, but I was delighted that people were up for dancing right at the start of the evening. I can't wait for my next opportunity to DJ for such a fun crowd.

I played the following tunes during my hour:

Rocky Horror Picture Show OST - Science Fiction Double Feature
Fleetwood Mac - The Chain
Jack Off Jill - When I Am Queen
L7 - Fuel My Fire
Disturbed - Land of Confusion
Sonic Boom Six - Virus
Skunk Anansie - Twisted (Everyday Hurts)
Savages - Husbands
Man or Astro Man? - Invasion of the Dragonmen
The Birthday Massacre - Red Stars
Orgy - Blue Monday
Scooter - The Logical Song
KMFDM - A Drug Against War
Wax Audio - Lady Judas (Lady Gaga vs Judas Priest)
Florence + The Machine - Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)
The Dresden Dolls - Girl Anachronism
Type O Negative - My Girlfriend's Girlfriend
Faith No More - Surprise! You're Dead
