Feet Retreat. Incredible.

This past weekend at Feet Retreat I had the honor of debuting a new contra dance DJ: DR Shadow, also known as Ben Smith from the Mean Lids (who were amazing and transcendent). I got to play three of his tunes along with my usual campy pop music, and it was a big hit.

AND he gave me permission to play them at the Durham Rushfest on October 12! Bam. The coolest.

Getting ready for Feet Retreat!

I'm so excited to debut some songs from a brand new contra dance DJ! I may or may not have been listening to some of those songs on repeat all day. (ahem)

The Charlotte dance was amazing. I love those folks. And Sheldon's lighting. YES.

Two of the local Charlotte dancers are moving to Denver, CO, so I changed up my set list and played them "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles) / The One That Got Away / Don't Stop Believin'."
