Sooo…it’s been a hawt minute. It’s been over a year since an episode was released, obviously because of the pandemic clubs and live events were shut down. Now that San Francisco has opened up, including the rest of California and the United States we find ourselves in this post-COVID-19 shutdown era with some venues requiring proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test to party. I am extremely grateful to Michale Liu for inviting me out on Saturday, July 17, 2021 to Secret Psychedelica – Cancer 2021 held at DNA Lounge in SF. My first indoor party since the COVID lockdowns were lifted. We had the opportunity to check-in with Triode after his set.
It really was nice to get out. It’s definitely something that I felt was missing from my social activities. The feeling of being around people, sharing music, dancing, seeing friends and making new ones. And while I’m still somewhat anxious of going into enclosed spaces with so many people, I find some comfort in wearing a mask 😷, others might not because they’re supposed to be vaccinated or whatever, but I think the important part is that I feel comfortable regardless of other people’s choices.
In this episode, Triode and I talk about his origin story, his fave track, as well as other musical influences. Also, you may notice my voice is not as clear and that was because I was still wearing my mask, you know, just cuz. I hope you enjoy.
I managed to catch John Beaver & Durty while on their Coachella Mix CD Tour at So Stoked: Summer Of Love. This is the VERY FIRST EPISODE of PLUR Gathering and I recorded the audio using the Anchor app on my phone. I have to say that for a phone recording the quality is pretty good, but please pardon any audio spikes or volume issues. As always, John and Durty delivered a high-energy set that pulled the dance floor in and got everyone ready headliners for the party. We also have special treat because the duo also premiered their latest track, A Good Night Sleep. A special thanks to John, for participating in the very first recorded episode of this show! John has been an example of PLURR and positive energy from the get, be sure to check his links to find out where he’s playing next!
