ha ha, 'Berlin-style ping pong'? are they serious? if so, sad I'm missing it! the Germans are crazy about the 'Tischtennis', and when I lived in Berlin there was this great bar that had hexagonal ping pong--you play inside a giant hexagon--which blew my mind

Last night with Optimo was brilliant. Now I understand what all the hype is about.
― viborg, Sunday, 4 September 2011 19:31 (1 year ago) Permalink
love them and wish i'd been there. i've seen them DJ 20 times in the last ten years, probably. i miss them.
going to try to see them tonight, in NYC. they're flying in straight from SF to the gig and setting up at 1 AM, from what i heard!
― geeta, Sunday, 4 September 2011 19:40 (1 year ago) Permalink
That sounds like a grueling trip for them. I'd love to find one of their recent sets. The older ones I've heard weren't quite the same as what I heard last night. Dare I say...magical?
― viborg, Sunday, 4 September 2011 20:08 (1 year ago) Permalink
details details!! what'd they play?
― geeta, Sunday, 4 September 2011 20:18 (1 year ago) Permalink
You really want spoilers? They might play a similar set tonight, maybe not. Highlights include 12" remix of Running Up That Hill, Joy Division Atmosphere, Arthur Russell edit (can't remember exactly, I think I shook my brain loose last night), some Depeche Mode which I could do without, lots of acid/old school house (eg Move Your Body), and quite a bit of newer stuff. I was having trouble placing it all what with all the excitement. Definitely Oni Ayhun, Blawan - Getting Me Down. Etc. Seemed like they were doing quite a bit of editing on the fly too, maybe I was mistaken.

Arthur Russell edit (can't remember exactly, I think I shook my brain loose last night
probably the insane edit of 'is it all over my face?' by the mole?
do you have the 'optimogeddon' mixes? get 'em, they're great
― geeta, Sunday, 4 September 2011 21:55 (1 year ago) Permalink
Awesome awesome awesome, thanks so much! And yes it probably was the Is It All Over My Face edit.

Btw is that your blog? I'm afraid I may have made some less than courteous comments there in the past; if it's yours you have my humblest apologies.

no, that's not my blog--my blog is here: http://www.theoriginalsoundtrack.com
heading out to see optimo in a few! will report back!

How was it?
I like that article about Conrad Schnitzler you wrote. Honestly I'd never heard of him before but fascinating that he seemed to influence so many other artists, including Thomas Fehlmann among others. I couldn't figure out a way to comment on the blog in a way that allowed me to use a recognizable name, but I was just going to say it was an interesting article, so no biggie.

thanks, glad you liked it!
The Optimo gig in NYC was tough. They had played in SF the night before--a four-hour set, they told me--and they'd only slept for an hour. Then they flew cross-country to NYC, and ended up spending the entire day in transit because their flight from SF was delayed. They flew into Newark, apparently, landed at about 2 AM, cabbed it up to the venue in Brooklyn at top speed and made it there a bit before 3 AM. Back on the decks, right after a six hour flight and no sleep! The venue (Littlefield) closed at 4 AM. The NYC gig was good, even against the odds, but I wish I'd been at the SF gig.

one of the many great moments in their set was when they suddenly dropped in this old northern soul tune
and wow, what a tune
― geeta, Wednesday, 7 September 2011 01:09 (1 year ago) Permalink
oh yeah, and seeing all the horse meat disco guys up front lose their heads to 'menergy'
that was a moment, right there
― geeta, Wednesday, 7 September 2011 02:01 (1 year ago) Permalink
The SF gig was indeed spectacular, but I have a feeling they play a lot more often in NYC. Apparently this was their first time playing together in SF. I wish they would have played a little more of the classic 90's house that the SF crowd seems to love. Overall just a really nice night though.

Kimo's is rumored to be closing.
I saw the first bay area appearances of Black Dice, Wolf Eyes, Andrew WK, Lightning Bolt (the Power of Salad & Milkshakes footage shows me standing on a table here)... lots of good memories.

what I heard is that it's being sold, and the new owners don't plan to have live shows anymore.
