I’m very thankful that as conditions with COVID-19 continue to evolve, live events, as well as other businesses, and the state of California adapt their guidelines. I recognize the importance of being safe, or at least being mindful that COVID is still out there and effects all of us – especially, when it comes to government-sanctioned lockdowns issued for public safety. At this time clubs in SF are requiring proof of vaccination for entry.
Personally, I’m still somewhat anxious when going indoors. When I get a drink I usually find myself making some attempt to get to a less-crowded corner of the room before lowering my mask to take a sip.
I think its a “point of PLUR” to take into consideration fellow dancers, taking care to be individually safe, knowing that I’m going to an indoor event. In my mind and heart, I hold this intention and hope fellow dancers hold it for me also.
In this episode, we find ourselves at Michael Liu’s Secret Psychedelica: Leo 2021. Our guest is Alastair James. We dig into Alastair’s background and discover his connection to the late Bill Graham of Bill Graham Auditorium (SF). We also get into gear, musical influences, his dream party, and discover talk about his podcast, Behind the Trance.
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!
