Jelo 1973 - 2008

Today I heard about the passing of my friend, Jeff Elo (aka "Jelo"). Jeff was an amazing friend and sunny spirit who I got to know well in the late '90s and continued to see over the years. It was Jeff who taught me how to DJ, and the mix CD titled Warmth, which he co-produced, was an early inspiration. More importantly, he was the sort of friend who always had a big smile and open arms. And he is missed very, very much.

May 4: DJ Gameshow at How Weird Street Faire



(Ok, how do I even describe this...)

On Sunday at 1 p.m. (that's one--in the afternoon--I know...) I'll be a contestant on "Think you can DJ?", the world's first DJ gameshow, at the How Weird Street Faire. The show is all about demonstrating DJ tricks, trivia, and stunts for the audience. Check out episodes on YouTube.

How Weird Street Faire
Sunday, May 4th
11:11 a.m. - 5:55 p.m.
Howard Street between New Montgomery and 1st Street

Think you can DJ? Stage
1:00 p.m. DJ Gameshow!
Across the street from TEMPLE under the bridge on Howard by 1st and 2nd

The How Weird Street Faire continues to bring together a diverse assortment of electronic music styles by collaborations of collectives and artists working together for a celebration of peace. You are invited to join us in starting a new era!

There will be nine stages of music during the day, seven city blocks filled with art and celebration, food and vendors from around the world selling unique and creative wares, non-profit organizations to educate and inspire you, performance artists and thousands of people in colorful costumes dancing in the streets, and the opportunity to meet members of your extended family and forge lasting connections.

The day is open to all ages, with requested donation of $10 (or $5 in costume).
