- From: Lauren F. Nowlin
- Date: Wed Feb 02 20:30:40 2000
Several NANOGrs have asked for a summary of the social details for this
weekend in the Bay Area... Here is the basic agenda:
3:00 pm: Meet in the lobby at the DoubleTree. Will caravan
from San Jose to SFO & sightsee until 5 pm
5:00-5:15 pm.: Entrance to Pier 39 for a sunset boat trip around the Bay.
$10 per person.
7:30 pm: Casual chat over dinner at Fisherman's Grotto #9. I'm
going to make the reservation for 8 pm under the name NANOG but really
need to give the restaurant as close as possible to accurate numbers...
so, please RSVP if you haven't already.
10:00 pm: The art gallery is at 1151 Mission and there is a huge
parking lot right across the street that charges $5. There
will be water & beer (pale, red & stout). The bottom of
this message will have short bios for each of the DJ's.
10-11:30 Mark Musselman
Bill Norton - firstname.lastname@example.org - is coordinating the paintball/Santa Cruz
5:00 pm meet in the lobby of the DoubleTree to forage for sushi.
Looking forward to seeing y'all,
Mark Musselman - Dir. Business Development, Cidera (formerly
Skycache). Newcomer on the SF music scene, Mark honed his skills on
the East Coast in the early InterCon and Digex days. Expect an
eclectic mix of futuristic Breaks and Beats in the House. Mark is also
looking for terrestrial network partners to stream audio and video of
this event in conjunction with the Cidera satellite system. Hmmm,
can't think of anything else. I'm not published yet. (soon
DJ Spesh was born and raised in the scrappy ghettos of St. Helena. His DJ
roots can be traced back to that fateful day he broke the knobs on his
father's stereo from continuously turning the volume and balance knobs
back and forth and back and forth after drinking a six pack of Coke and
eating a bag of Funyuns. Since then, Spesh has had numerous residencies
at SF clubs, co-founded and then co-produced tracks on the seminal Trip
'n Spin Recordings label, been the other half of the duo known as Jondi
& Spesh (as seen on MTV's AMP and in the record/cd shops of America),
and partnered with Lasse Loöq and Jondi to form Loöq Records. Jondi
& Spesh have released well over a dozen records since '94. As
SF's premiere underground progressive house and techno DJ, Spesh creates
hard-bangin' fist pumpin' totally smooth mixes whenever he touches the
turntables. A variety of phreeks and qoölios can be seen modulating to
his booming sets every week at the techno underground happy hour
"Qoöl" (every Wednesday at 111 Minna from 5-9pm). When not on
the decks or in the studio, Spesh is usually hard at work at the grill. A
fifth degree black belt in BBQ, Spesh has been known to simultaneously
cook fifteen to twenty large pieces of meat to succulent
perfection. links related to spesh:

Hi Ren, MarkM asked me to email you with a blurb about myself, so here goes. I have been dj'ing for ~10 years and promote a monthly S.F. party called Rotate. I am also an integral member of the Syntonic parties. Along with spinning, I write music in the studio with a friend under the name Bandwidth. One of our tracks is featured in the movie Groove. I have streamed sets on www.groovefactory.com and www.radio-v.com. Thats about it... Oh yea, I like good beer!
