Daft Punk @ Vegoose, Las Vegas, MP3 Download & More.

First up for y'alls is a MP3 repost (120 MB) of the .flac download of the Daft Punk set from Vegoose on Saturday, by way of eTree, which from a quick listen sounds VERY VERY VERY good.
EDIT: The direct link to the .Flac files, via Torrent, is here.  But frankly, this sounds really realy really really good.  As a former taper, i'm smitten.

Next, look at these sexy fuckers helping the helmet gals cinch the title.

Finally, pretty sure that this ain't daft punk's handiwork, but its impressively obsessive, completing the theme of this post. Full respect to our "crazy friend from Texas", Kiyoshi. Where the fuck do you find this shit k//?

Daft Punk 10/27 Las Vegas, Nevada "Vegoose" Review and Pictures

I'm gonna get into more specifics when i wake up tomorrow, and can more fully recap this amazing day, but for now i'll just give a play-by-play with the pictures.

After catching the 2nd half of M.I.A.'s set (meh), we met up with Danny and Newstie during Iggy Pop & The Stooges. Different vibe then i was going for, but still pretty fun. How old is that pretty topless lead-singer? Boy can she sing.

A major theme of the evening was Sam trying his best to ignore the fact that we weren't actually in Daft Punk. This involved walking around backstage, meeting the Tour manager for Cypress Hill "Dougie", and meeting all the nice older ladies that were running security. It also somehow led us into this cross-shaped fenced-in area in the middle of Daft's audience area. There we met some of the people who were taping the show (cool), as well as our new friends from Brooklyn, who apparently will be on my flight home tomorrow.

We ended up in a little "VIP" section just to the left of the soundboard, which provided us with views of the show that were two beautiful to even try and photgraph (i'll leave it to the pros who were around and doing their thing). Here we also met some great people, including the folks from Boise (Glasses/Sequins/Star-Facepaint). We also met these two girls who had apparently spent the last 10 days soldering together their own LED Daft Punk Helmets. Only Daft Punk can bring these kinds of people together.

Live Blog: Daft Punk @ Vegoose, Las Vegas, NV

In the most self-indulgent of gestures, i'm gonna "Live-Blog" my trip to Vegas. This is mostly because my flight is delayed @ JFK and I'm trying to do things other then drink while I wait. I'm travelling with my friend Sam, both of us rolling in tight black satin. We've been getting stares.

10/26 9:18 PM.: Just found out that our flight is delayed for 2 hours, and now we're ragin' at "New York Sports Grill", Jetblue's hottest club. I just ran into some friends from Speedway Films, whos flight back to Nashville was delayed too, so we shot the shit and watched some college football. Man this trip is off to a roaring start.

10/26 11:40 PM EST: Get me off this fucking plane!!! Its cool, only another 5 hours to go!!! We were waiting around JFK terminal 6, and saw some guy packing away a phat Ableton Live controller, so I asked him about it, and he said that he is the soundguy for DJ Jonathan Peters (who was laying on a bench ichatting with someone and wearing brown coveralls). His website says that he's the #1 dj in America. Not this weekend.

10/27 3:54 AM PST: Just got to the hotel. Tahiti Village has no wi-fi, so i'll be updating this at the times when i can connect. Pictures to follow.

10/27 5:55PM: Denny's was probably not the best pregame decision. Still, we're on our way out the door, looking fly...

10/28 4:45AM: Well that was amazing. So good it needs its own post. So check that out here.

We Rock Music 001

I'm ready to start another discog of an out of print French Label, this time, its We Rock Music, the late great label founded by Raw Man, Romain SeĆ³. Just eight 12" records in this one (plus a couple of CDs). I'm still pulling these together from the ends of the earth, so for this go-round it wont necessarily be one-a-day, but they will be up in short order. Enjoy.

Music from and inspired by Solid Goldberger

The coolest thing about having a blog (apparently) is when people send you cool shit for free. Since i've been doing this, i've actually received a bunch of great music from people that have been reading, and its given me a lot of hope that there is a future for the kind of house music that makes me tick. Here are two that happen to be from my village of Brooklyn.
