I just finished this bmore edit of Oh, What A Night for you!
Damn it feels good to be back in Minneapolis. The past two weeks have been crazy for us. We played a few parties down at SXSW including one with Moby, Ocelot, Ian O, and Preston Craig. Then we also played a party with Bird and Jose at The whiskey bar which was by far a highlight of the Austin trip. To be honest I wasn’t impressed with SXSW. I mean yeah there were parties everyday but there were sooooo many parties spread out none of them seemed CrAzY. I saw almost everyone I wanted to see.
(Jonathan falling off the bull…)
Big ups to Preston Craig, Neon Neon & Har Mar Superstar, The Whip, MSTRKRFT, BOYS NOIZE, and Villains for completely surprising me with their talents. A lot of the other blog house was a complete disappointment.
Anyway after SXSW we took a road trip to Oklahoma to play two parties with Dance Robots Dance. The first party we played I got a little too drunk and fucked up pretty hard. I just remember trying to look at my computer screen and focus. Chitty’s girlfriend was buying me shots of tequila… so blame her. Right? That’s the kewl thing to do. Blame others!!! I just remember everything was blurry and I was trainwrecking really hard. People were still dancing though… that’s all that matters…?

The next night we played an ALL AGES party at this club called Opolis. This was a blast. It reminded me of Minneapolis because it was a dirty venue and it was really house party style. Setup on a table… people all around you and people there to get drunk and dance. I played a way better set than the night before and for kewl points I played WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS LOL. Now really that song was big last summer but allllll the kids danced like it was the hit of right now. It was also funny because you’d have 16 year olds dancing to it and 25 year olds dancing to it. Who wulllddda thunk it? THANKS JUSTICE AND SIMIAN MOBILE DISCO!!! Last years music big in 08?
So after that party we had to leave straight from the club so we could make it to the in-store at Robot Love and Honeymoon. Talk about a fucking trip…
Robot Love was fun. We were all super tired from the long drive but Dance Robots Dance played a fun set and how can you complain with free drinks!? Also sidenote: The new moongoons t-shirt is available for sale there now! Pick it up!
(Honeymoon VIII – White Trash – Dance Robots Dance, Trash Yourself, The Moon Goons)
Later that night was Honeymoon VIII with Dance Robots Dance, Trash Yourself, and Us. The night started out slow… I imagine so all the under 21′s could get CRUNKZXZ~##@ as FUXXXX but it filled up fast. There were some fucking ACE outfits too…
(Love this guy!!)
Finally people showed up… Dance Robots Dance started playing and before I knew it this was a fucking serious party. The most people we’ve had yet! I’ve got papers to prove it!!! Everyone was white trashed and trashed off alchohol. I remember one point in the night I was handing my bottle of bombay to the crowd and I was standing on top of the speakers. It was soooo insane. Trash Yourself started his set and that’s when things got real wild. People were bumping the needle on the record and spilling their drinks on the dj. I was so happy. We played our set and I played WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS again lmao. I couldn’t believe I played it but people were singing along and pumping their fists. I remember at one point in the night when I had my cloak on people were grabbing me. Somehow we managed to lose one of our records for our Scratch and so we were playing off of one record the whole time… fucking nuts. We ended the set with some banger tracks available for snaggin’ at the bottom of this post.
Seriously thanks to everyone who came out! Party photos available above where it says… umm… party photos!

After Honeymoon we hit up Chicago with DRD and Trash Yourself. Bald Eagle asked us to play Life During Wartime. It was cool. Nothing could compare to Honeymoon from the night before really. The crowd was way tough. We had some good requests though. Can you play “Daft Punk, Miami Bass, and any 2-Live Crew?” Fuck yeah we can! After LDW we all went over to the Smart Bar were Bald Eagle works. Pretty kewl club. At about 5AM we all said our goodbyes and went home. Bald Eagle will be coming to play the 10th edition of Honeymoon. So watch out!
NOW SOME CHUNES!!!
Here are some tracks that basically highlight the past two weeks. Most all of them are old but they are damn good. BONUS. MOONGOONS MIXABLE EDIT OF DEY KNOW!!
Yahhh – Soulja Boy and Arab
Fascination (Count of Monte Cristal and Sinden Remix) – Alphabeat
This last weekend was dope. I wish I could have snapped more pictures because there were a lot of good looking people partying. Ah well… We had a fun in-store at Robot Love and then Honeymoon VII on Friday was sooooo heavy. Non stop electro bangers all night. Big ups to NaughtyWood for keeping the tempo at 130 lmao. Next month is going to get real wild because we are bringing Trash yourself and Dance Robots Dance to party. ARE YOU READY!? VROOOM VROOOM. I SAID, ARE YOU READY!? Oooowahahah get down wit da sicknezz!!!
The Dance Robots Dance guys recently posted a “Year End Review” of some tracks they liked and guess what?! The Moon Goons track – Evil Organ$$ was linked. Yay. Well, we love the Dance Robots Dance guys too. In fact we love them so much we are inviting them out to party with us in February for Honeymoon with Trash Yourself. It is going to be wild wild wild. In the meantime check out their goodies on the Myspace.
