This Friday i’ll be DJing at one of my favorite events and places in Portland to spin at: The 1st Friday Super Jam @ The GoodFoot Pub & Lounge!
A little history: I started going to First Fridays at the GoodFoot around 2003 or 2004 because it was one of the only clubs in Portland that would let bboys get down and actually was welcoming to us to get down. I may or may not have been a year underage at this time and, allegedly, used a borrowed ID, but if that was the case, it was all because I wanted to go break to some dope funk, soul, disco and hip hop music, and wasn’t even concerned with drinks.
This place has consistently been a haven for the dancers in PDX and has always done well to be bboy friendly, and a big cause of this is the man that started this night: DJ Magneto. He’s been keeping this party running for years and it has stayed consistently dope and thriving. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to spin at this party before and had a BLAST the first time. I literally could play whatever I wanted and the crowd is always open minded so they allow for a lot of experimentation and taking the musical direction to lots of different areas.
This week i’ll be rocking the party along with resident DJ’s Standing 8 and Mr. Jeigh and we’re gonna be bringing some funkiness like no other, so come party with us!
