The Infinite Beat 5 @ Bar 107





The Infinite Beat 5 : records only

It was our fifth night of music in downtown this year. It's good to be back. Those three nights at Safari Sams were cool too. It was a night of many events. Part was hanging out with Chris Mehess. It was his birthday. That was great. I played records for an hour and a half. Then ALESSI came on a played a few songs. I remember one called "Treehouse." It was the first time we have had a live act at our DJ nights downtown. It was amazing. Blake Collins played too. I gave out books and many free CDs. People were happy. DJ Dick Hemlock played for an hour. Jodi, Liane, and Kimberly showed up from the Bay Area. It was Kimberly's birthday too. We had a few drinks, and then I played records for another hour.
