  • GIGS: The annual Druid Halloween Party returns on 10/31

    The Halloween party at The Druid is one of the best around. This will be the fourth one I’ve done, and I wouldn’t want to be working anywhere else that night. It’s on Halloween proper (10/31), which falls on a Tuesday this year, and it’ll still get jammed up despite the mid-week slot. Best part for you: there’s a $300 cash prize for best costume, and it gets pretty damn competitive too. It’s also a solid dance party. They take out any piece of furniture that’s not nailed down. And if that’s not enough … there’s no cover. Get there early and stay late.

  • New Residency: Off the Wall Mondays at Bella Luna/Milky Way

    I am looking forward to adding Bella Luna & the Milky Way in Jamaica Plain to my residency list for the fall (in addition to Thursdays at the Druid and Fridays at Foundry on Elm). I’ll be DJing every Monday starting on September 18th. And for my 9-5 friends, this one is totally for you. I’ll be spinning a vibey afterwork set from 6 PM to 8 PM before the bar rolls into trivia. I am usually a night owl so I don’t mind the early set either, especially coming in hot  off the weekend. I have a feeling this’ll be the spot where I can try out some fun things and dig deep into the crates. There’s something in the water in JP that makes disco, deep house, and funk feel just right.

  • J-Wall Drops a Latin Mix to Honor sweetgreen’s Toro Bowl

    The folks at sweetgreen are partnering with Boston-based restaurateur Ken Oringer on the “Toro Bowl.” Knowing Oringer’s impressively delicious track record (heavy-hitters like Toro, Coppa, & Little Donkey), it’s safe to say this will be a winner.

    I was beyond excited to spin the launch event in early April at sweetgreen’s Ink Block location, so I put together a mix for all y’all to enjoy. It seems like a Spanish/Latin vibe would be appropriate for the occasion. Here are some of the tracks I’ve been messing around with in that world (check out the full track-list below). The Whiskey Barons really come in handy in times like these!
