DJ setlist: Bifröst Rock Disco @ Nine Worlds, London (9/8/14)

At the weekend I returned to Nine Worlds Geekfest, to provide music for the dancing a second year running.

Nine Worlds felt bigger, better and somehow more confident this year. Bifröst Queer Cabaret was a perfect example of this: the live performances were in a bigger room (which was still absolutely rammed) with a massive stage and proper lighting rig. The acts all seemed to feed off the energy of the space, with performances that were by turns funny, reflective, sexy and/or plain fun.

My own set started a little later than planned. It was a bit odd to be in a different room, but was certainly more practical for the sake of setup, and everyone seemed to find their way over without any problem as it rapidly filled up during the first couple of songs. Top props to the fellow cosplaying Thor for declaring the disco open in the wake of "Thunderstruck", and thanks to all who turned up to sing and dance the night away

I played:

Hedwig & and the Angry Inch - Tear Me Down

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
