Here’s What I Played at Club Underground on October 6, 2023

Club Underground indie dance night at Grand Star Jazz Club in Chinatown Los Angeles with guest DJ Liz O. on October 6, 2023 (Photo: Liz Ohanesian)

On Thursday, I bought a pair of Sambas and then I broke them in that night on the dance floor at 96 Tears and, let me tell you, that was the best decision I’ve made in months. It meant that I could DJ from 9:30 until 1:30 upstairs at the Grand Star for Club Underground without my back killing me well before midnight. And I could actually dance while I was DJing too, which probably looks stupid, but it’s how I keep time, so whatever. 

Anyhow, you’re all awesome. As always, thanks for dancing and I’ll see you at Underground again for the Halloween party on October 27. You can catch me next this Sunday afternoon for Disco Matinee at The Grand Star. Here’s what you heard on Friday, October 6, 2023 at Club Underground.
