The Power Out

But not at Chop Suey last night.

Last night as ghostly winds and flickering lights haunted our town, a nice respectable crowd turned up for Chop Suey's 4th annual Christmas party, featuring Velella Velella, the Dead Science, Telefon Tel Aviv (pictured here in paradise), and SunTzu Sound.

I have to give a major heads-up to my favorite DJ collective for dropping Beanfield's gorgeous "Tides" as the first song of their final set. After the extended sexjam that was Telefon's performance, it fit perfectly, not to mention with the generally spooky atmosphere of the evening itself. The song came out on Germany's Compost records (associated with future jazz masterminds Jazzanova, Truby Trio, etc) in 2002 and Carl Craig's remix is the shit. Again, I'm telling you, SunTzu knows what's up. Check out their show City Soul on KBCS tonight from 9-11 p.m. for more.

Also: "This is a really cute crowd," remarked my co-worker Jonathan at the show. It was true, but what's with this get-your-name-but-not-your-number thing? Doesn't anyone remember Bailey from Singles? "This watch holds 20 numbers, and tonight I'm gonna fill it!" Of course, the punchline being that he did fill it, and, being a Seattleite, never called any of the girls. Go figure.
