Sea of Sound

DC9 was packed to the gills with sweet sounds all night this Sunday as four great bands and two great DJ’s (if I do say so myself) created a sonic atmosphere unlike most shows to come through DC.

My DJ partner and I were spinning music there under our Re:sonance DJ’s moniker and achieved something we’ve been talking about doing for a long time. To spin music thematically related to the bands playing to create an all-night experience for the audience. There was a nice sized crowd for our debut and everyone there seemed to be really into it. Thanks to all those who came out and double thanks for all the nice compliments on our music.

Of course the bands were the main event. Rob Montejo, fomerly of mid-90’s american shoegazers Smashing Orange, treated the audience to a one man guitar strum fest washing over his heartfelt crooning. From New York came Loaded Dreams who played an etheral but surprisingly rocking set of tunes that fell somewhere between Throwing Muses and Cocteau Twins. DC girl-band 54 got the crowd bopping with their infectious minimalist pop. And then headliners Alcian Blue brought the roof down with what is probably their loudest set yet that I have had the good fortune to see.

In all it was a great night of good music and good fun. We’ll be spinning with Alcian Blue again in November so if you missed us this time you’ll have another chance to catch us and them!
