This past Saturday night I had the distinct pleasure of playing at one of the coolest spots in Chinatown (on the edge of the LES), The Leadbelly. The Leadbelly is a bar restaurant with a very intimate feel. It felt like I was playing in someone’s living room, it was that cozy. I was in good company, as DJs like Edan (The Humble Magnificent), Monk-One, and Chances With Wolves (Of EVR fame) have all graced the decks. Armed with a Tucker & Bloom bag of 45s, I ran through everything from jazz funk, to gritty soul and organ funk, African influenced 45s, and soul instrumentals all night. The place was packed from start to finish, and I have to say they served me the best home made Ginger Beer I’ve ever had. Hoping to get back to this spot again, and when I do, I will let you know. Smallest DJ booth ever, but when you’re playing little records, it’s all relative. Check out more info on The Leadbelly here.
