I've been invited by Lenny Kaye (Patti Smith Group) to open up this anniversary show at the fabulous City Winery here in NYC. Lenny was the producer/curator for this Nuggets series back in the day and they are celebrating the 50th anniversary of this record compilation. It's rare I get to do a fun spot like this, with such an awesome cast of eclectic artists (Patti Smith, Peter Buck (REM), Vicki Peterson (The Bangles) Marshall Crenshaw, Juliana Hatfield and many more). I will be taking over the stage and spinning cool 60s grooves from 6-8pm, and a short half hour set after the live performances.
There are still a few tixs available at the box office, so come on down and hang with us!!!
I got a text from my friend Sherryl the other day saying she saw this Japanese documentary on Al Kooper, and she was in the band at the time singing. In the middle of the movie was a section on NY Nightlife, and they interviewed a few owners of clubs, celebrities, and yours truly in my DJ Booth at the old China Club when it was on Broadway and 75th Street. This was the first time I had seen the video, and actually had no memory of even doing it!!! I've done so many news shows over the years, and have yet to see any of the clips, I guess I had just brushed it off. But, here's me with my curls saying a few words. Memories of me as a baby DJ!
Have a look
