Nights in Washington

04Jul11

Nights in Washington are different. I don’t know exactly why and how, but I don’t feel the same need as in Berlin to be outside. Why is it that restaurants are so loud that you can barely talk? Don’t they check on the acoustic at all? It seems that the louder, the hipper the place. That’s why the German beergarden on 14th St is one of my favorite places in DC so far. You can actually hear what your friends are saying.

But I actually just wanted to write about how great it is to have some friends over, plug in my Berlin-made Pokketmixer, connect the varios iPhones, blackberries and computers, and enjoy the evening, and well, the night.

From Caribou’s Melody Day to Funkstörung and M.I.A., Disrupt and Hot Chip’s Boy from School, Rock the Casbah and Joy Division, switching to some classic Alan Vega (from this great ZE Records compilation), Los Lobos, and a song about a Venezuelan in New York, some Bill Withers, Sexy Eyes and Abracadabra, the Steve Miller Band, to even more classic Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin.

A great night to the sound of the city.

(I loved the idea of my friend Codru who posted his week in YouTube videos!)
