The Gas Light before the Crowd arrives. For those
of you from the DC area think Love but on a smaller scale.
Extremely plush, great sound, and a beautiful light show.

Dj Alem and me, we tore the club down last night

The Gas Light once the crowd arrived.

Me and the man with the plan, Danny Davis.

The Mehari Brothers and me. They rocked
the place on Friday night at the Splash Party.

More Ethio women at the Splash Party Friday Night

Front view of the Sheraton at Night

Well the first weekend in Addis has been pretty eventful. The Splash Party on Friday was a success even with the limited time for promotion so it should get better and better as the weeks go on. Last night at the Gas Light was even better, the people really partied and they actually have an appreciation for a wide range of music. I played a lot of old school, reggae, and hip hop. Looking forward to next weeks parties and exploring the city over the week. Promise to get some pics of the city up. It's still rain season here so it pretty much feels like a warm Seattle right now.

Two of the members of the House Band (check my man's jacket),
Me, and one of the many Ethiopian women at the Office Bar.

Guess you were right about taking the shots Fe$.
Better bruises than yellow fever I always say

Two more Ethios and a German woman at the Office Bar

I have to say the most surprising thing about Addis is that it is a multi-cultural city. So far Ive met people from Lebanon, Germany, Asia, and various other places. I've been told that it holds the fourth largest concentration of embassies in the world, which accounts for the amount of varying cultures you run into. First party I'm spinning tonight so we shall see how it goes down.
