Note: This is a horribly delayed post, but I was waiting for photos that did it justice (I need a camera crew for FlashDance and Trikeasaurus dammit!). Luckily, May-Li & Liza came through. Anyway this is the one of 2 posts about LAST Saturday (11/15), not the most recent Saturday. The other post is about Trikeasaurus rocking the Anti-Prop-8 Protest that day.
Also note that there is a video & the playlist after the jump!
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! Flashdance 18 was just amazing. Maybe 100-150 people dancing at any given time and maybe 200 people over the course of the night. But as usual, the real story was just the vibe. A warm night and fun music were part of it, but really, as usual the key to such a great FlashDance is all the awesome people who came out to 24th & Mission and made it so fabulous! I love my peeps! Thanks for making 3 years of FlashDances so amazing!
Here’s the playlist below. Honestly, I’m getting happier and happier with my playlists. As I’ve said numerous times, it’s hard to balance all the factors: the need to keep it fresh, the need to handle the requests I get, and also the need to keep the music broad enough to appeal to a lot of folks. But lately, I’m having blast with the music & hope you are too.(Thanks for all your suggestions & please keep them coming! Apologies in advance if I decide they don’t fit, or don’t get to them.)
And yes, I have been playing “Boyz” by M.I.A. a lot – but I love our “Boyz” Slide!!!! Thanks for the video Liza! (And if anyone else has pics please send ’em)
