Starting in June, I’ll be spinning the first (ish) Saturday of the month this summer at Aeronaut Brewery. That includes June 3, July 1, August 5, and September 9.
Over the past year I’ve DJed at the brewery, which is located just outside of Union Square, Somerville, at least handful of times. It’s always pretty jammed, but it’s a huge room so there’s never an issue finding a solid space to chill or dance (or play Connect Four).
Each time I’ve worked the room I’ve noticed the vibe has gotten livelier and more accepting of a DJ. Usually anything flies here, sometimes I’ll go on an indie or alt-rock run, and then other times it’s house classics for a while. Lots of throwbacks, and of course funk & soul will make the cut too.
I strive to stack the deck with my favorite remixes and covers when I spin at breweries, like this one of Little Roy doing Nirvana (Remixed by Alkalino). I think it keeps people on their toes and gives ’em something they wouldn’t usually hear at bars or clubs.
