The time has come! All Things Go presents the first of hopefully many dance parties hosted by our good friends over at U St. Music Hall this Thursday, August 5th. Those in attendance will be treated to the sounds of DJ Che$t Rockwell, who some of you may remember as our guest writer Nick Cafritz, and DJ Chris Collins. Tickets are $8 at the door, and $5 with Facebook RSVP. This is the beginning of a new era for All Things Go. We are getting more involved in the D.C. area and you’ll see some serious changes around these here parts, beginning with these events and continuing with the site remodeling (which is underway as I write this). GET READY.

RSVP for the event and save $3 RIGHT HERE!!!!!!

Just to give you a taste, I can pretty much guarantee that you’ll hear a heavy dosage of these three jams:

MP3: Yolanda Be Cool & Dcup – “We No Speak Americano”
MP3: Will Smith – “Miami (Laidback Luke Remix)”
MP3: Wynter Gordon – “Dirty Talk (Laidback Luke Remix)”

Thanks to Derek from Neon Gold for designing the poster.


Last Night Had Me In The Best Mood

May 26, 2010

We’ve all been there before. You wake up in a foreign place wearing last nights clothes and smelling of [insert cheap liquor of choice] with a confused look and what seems like an army of toddlers banging pots and pans inside your head. You stumble around searching for clues to explain how you ended up in your neighbor’s front yard, and check a newspaper to make sure it’s still May. You realize you’re okay alive and check your phone for even more clues: you placed a call to your ex-girlfriend at 2:33AM. And again at 2:35. 2:36. 2:41. 5:15. You have three voice mails, a few texts (one from your ex asking you to stop calling because, you know, its five in the fucking morning). Then reality sets in as your stomach turns and your hunger for sausage egg and cheese bagels becomes unbearable. You check your back pocket to see that you’ve spent all $60 in cash that was in your wallet, and you have a few receipts for disgusting amounts from your favorite bar, including a credit card bill for $1.39, because, at 4 AM, Slim Jim seemed like a sound purchase. Your best friend calls you and asks why you’re not at that social event you promised last night that you would attend. He says you had a conversation, but you say ALL I REMEMBER IS……

MP3: The Knocks – “Blackout”

Remember, it happens to the best of us. But, usually, it happens to the worst of us. At least there isn’t a tiger in your bathroom.


That’s My Commandment, You Ain’t Gotta Ask Moses

October 8, 2009


All in all, I’m not too big of a fan of Kid Cudi, (KiD CuDi? kId cUdI? KID CUDI!?). However, letting Kanye get back to the basics with the sample of Lady GaGa’s “Poker Face” was a stroke of genius. When I hear “Make Her Say”, I get all nostalgic, wishing ‘Ye could go back to the College Dropout production days. What’s truly ironic is that CuDi is more in the vein of 808s and Heartbreak (see: shitty) Kanye, but I’m not complaining.

This is all just a long way of saying a short thing: go listen to Sammy Bananas make you dance.

MP3: KiD CuDi ft. Kanye West & Common – “Make Her Say (Sammy Bananas Remix)” (Removed at artist’s request)
