Beautiful Day.

Tuesday, April 05, 2005

What a gorgeous day in the Chi. 75 degrees. For the Europeans reading this, that means it was warm.

I leave for Berlin day after tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it. Something tells me this is the last time I play there, ever. Not just Tresor, which is closing, but the city itself. It'll be the end of an era.

I almost got a gig at the Rex Club in Paris while I was over there, but we couldn't come together on it this time. Later this year, though, I hope. It's a great club with an enclosed DJ booth, for optimum acoustics and perfect mixing. The crowd there is very fun-loving and the women are beautiful. I haven't played there since late 2003. It's cool, though, 'cause that means I don't have to cancel out on Woody McBride on April 15th. Woody's an old friend and I want to come through for him.

I just got an offer today for a gig somewhere in New York state. I put Trish on the case. She represents me for the USA. I kinda quit talking to people in the USA about gigs directly, unless they're friends like Woody, or promoters I know. They always think they're getting away with something if they get past your management, trying to penny-pinch and cry broke (not all, but most). Nothing gets past Trish, though. I love her.

  • Sounds cool! Hope you're taking a few extra days to enjoy Berlin...but I bet it won't be as warm as Chicago!

  • Yeah, except for a side trip to Madrid, I'll be in Berlin 'till the middle of next week, scouting galleries, catching up with old friends, and generally partying at Tresor. The club is open every night non-stop 'till the 16th.

    Nice to see you post here, Water ;-)
