“Sorry, I cannot hear you, I’m kinda busy…”

On Sunday I served as the DJ on Virgin America’s float during the San Francisco Pride parade. This was my second year doing so, and it’s always really fun but also a real challenge – the float is bouncing up and down from everyone dancing, plus there’s stop/start forward motion as the float moves along. I compare it to DJing on a trampoline. You can watch the float in motion here (thanks Bob).

I wanted to keep the vibe really up and fun and play songs people would know, but maybe not mixes they’d heard before. This mix was recorded after-the-fact as a sort of souvenir, and was pulled from the original longer set, keeping the songs in their same running order.

“Believe me, doll – we’re all through. There’s no money in the underground.”

Readers Wifes are Chelsea Kelsey and Kim Phaggs, the DJs from infamous London club Duckie. I went to Duckie during a trip to London and had one of my best nights out, ever. The narration on Nostalgia is done by Justin Bond, a.k.a. Kiki of New York drag cabaret act Kiki & Herb.

I got Bossy from Mark in Portland.

The lead vocal on Strange Sounds is an incognito Jake Shears from Scissor Sisters, singing with a pinched nose.
