On November 30, 2009, in music, parties, review, by Dr Hitchcock

Hey you! Thanks so very much to everyone who came down and partied with us at Goodbye Blue Monday (GBM) on Saturday night. GBM was packed, the crowd was heaving and the Mixtape Crew laid down the most rockin’, floor stomping electro and retro pop around town. A huge thank-you to Indie Slut, Missy G, Apex Beat, and Goodbye Blue Monday for your choice moistness! There’s sure to be more parties in 2010 so keep your ear to the net yo!

Peace,
Dr H

Hey yo!

Woah! I can’t believes it but we’re throwing another Mixtape Connection party! For those who don’t know, the Mixtape Connection was a monthly Indie-Rock, Electro, whatever, Club night that was held at Capitol Bar on Hereford Street throughout 2005 and 2006. The line-up at the first party was Missy G from RDU’s Girlschool, Richard from Guitar Media (you can now find him online at Rose Quartz) and myself from the Mixtape Sessions, known then as Mr Hitchcock (I had not yet gained my PhD in Scientology). Indie Slut joined the crew at gig 2 and  became a resident after Richard moved to Australia in Dec 05. Back in the day it was a fully functional indie death star, complete with cassette mixtapes, zines, CDs, t-shirts, badges, atari games on flatscreen, music videos and stamps. For some old photos from the December 05 party visit here. It was pretty cool while it lasted and I know that all who were involved miss it heaps. So anyways, I bumped into Missy G at Goodbye Blue Monday (GBM) sometime last month and she suggested that we throw another party and do it there! What a grand idea! All of us hang out and DJ there all the time these days so why not!

Here are the deets:

New beginnings

On September 26, 2009, in News, by Dr Hitchcock

So after a week or so of throwing names around I’ve decided that StarScream++ was a bit techie and a bit geeky and have decided to officially call the new Starlifter.TV SHOUTcast audio stream… Starlifter Radio, original huh. So it’s official as of today you can go straight to StarlifterRadio.com and listen to the latest and the greatest in the world of Starlifter.TV. One name I just thought of that would’ve been a laugh was “Starlifter.TV-on-the-radio.com” – you indie kids will get it, you dance kids might not :p

So yeah, StarlifterRadio.com, a fully functional Death Star. Sometimes live from the Starlifter.TV Complex, sometimes with Auto DJ, HAL++. If you wanna know when live shows are happening follow us on twitter @starliftertv. If you’ve got any tunes or mixes you wanna share with the Starlifter.TV community you can upload them here: http://soundcloud.com/drhitchcock/dropbox – and if you’re techie minded enough and wanna host a show on Starlifter Radio drop me a line: drh_at_starlifter.tv

Oh, by the way… I just uploaded a whole bunch of old photos from the old Mixtape Connection archive. If you ever went to any of those parties you know the radness, oh yes, you know the radness. Photos can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Mixtape-Connection/6541735977 – AH MEMORIES!
