Here’s What I Played at Club Underground on November 10, 2023

Sign at Club Underground in Los Angeles that reads:
Underground x Interpol 
Room 1- Turn on the Bright Lights
Loads of Interpol, post-punk, indie, Britpop, synthpop, dark/new wave dance party (80s-today) w/DJ Larry G.
Room 2 — Antics
Post-punk, indie, Brit pop, synthpop, dark/new wave, goth dance party (80s -today) with DJ Liz O.
Underground loves you!!
I forgot to take pics last night, save for this one of a sign in the stairwell.

I don’t know what I’m most grateful for tonight. Was it the people at Club Underground who danced to the brand new Confidence Man tune? Was it the person who admitted listening to Confidence Man, who released one of my favorite albums of 2022, because of my sets? (BTW, Confidence Man is at the Echoplex on December 2.) Or, was it the trio who listened to my rant about how Chumbawamba were the working class heroes we needed, but we didn’t deserve them and now we’re stuck with capitalist icon Taylor Swift? Maybe it’s all that. 

I’m also grateful for a good amount of people who stayed on the dance floor for a new song from Spiritual Cramp, a band I had previously ignored because the name is such an obvious Christian Death reference and I figured they would be a really cheesy, overly dramatic goth band. However, Spiritual Cramp’s new self-titled album, which is actually the San Francisco band’s full-length debut, is great. It doesn’t sound at all like I thought it would. Hey, I can admit when I’m wrong. 

Anyhow, life is weird, you guys, but thanks for dancing. I’ll be at Underground next on December 8, which is my birthday. (My real, actual birthday, btw.) You should go. Anyhow, this is the set list from the second floor at Underground for Interpol Nite on November 11, 2023.
