My good friend Kerry asked if I could play her birthday party. Fresh off a banger of a gig at Obie’s I thought “hells yeah!”. The brief was upbeat party vibes so I played the likes of Justice, Bowie, Gameboy/Gamegirl, Haiku Hands, Soulwax, Uffie, Duck Sauce, The Rapture as well as one of my own towards the end. Party on yo!
This doco about Soulwax’s travels around the world is amazing. It’s well shot, is put together in a clever way and the footage is brilliant. So yeah, we’re throwing a little Friday, late night screening on the 30th of Jan at Rialto. It’s only $5 donation/koha entry with all profits going to charity.

A documentary about Soulwax: Director Saam Farahmand filmed Soulwax on their recent international dates, capturing all the excitement, chaos and humour of the world tour. Where the Beastie Boys filmed one gig with 50 cameras, Soulwax filmed 120 shows with one camera, in Europe, Japan, US, Latin America and Australia. The result is a snapshot of life on the road with one of the most exciting live bands in the world, and features their friends including 2manyDJ’s, James Murphy & Nancy Whang (LCD Soundsystem), Erol Alkan, Tiga, Justice, Busy P, So-Me, Peaches, Klaxons and many more in interview, as well as behind-the-scenes footage, and LOTS of music.
