Kiki Lives…

Barely.  I’m tired, crazy, awake, stressed, happy, non-stop on the go, hungry, everything.  This semester is going to be extra cray.  There’s a beautiful, spectacular light at the end of the tunnel and it’s called graduation so all this better be bloody well worth it!! 😉

No real time to write.  The fliers speak for themselves.

I’m guesting on Stunna’s Bassdrive The Greenroom show Wed Jan. 30.  Tune in.  www.bassdrive.com

Then I’m playing at Smart Bar.  If you love deep, liquidy, dnb then this night is seriously not to be missed.  Hope to see you there.

Kiki Raises The White Flag

I admit defeat.  Graduate school is officially the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life.  I still am enjoying what I’m learning but dang, there’s so much work and it really is becoming a bit overwhelming.  Don’t worry I’m not gonna get all emo.  I’m hanging in there.  I can’t wait til this semester is over though.

Some good dnb shows come up in the Chi so that’s at least something to look forward to.

Always good to see A Sides.  He never disappoints. ❤

The following week Calculon will be back throwing down at Smart Bar.  Love Calculon too.  Will be an awesome distraction to hang out with the dnb homies and listen to some good tunes as finals approach.  If you are in town make sure to come hang out.  You know there are good times to be had!

Tunes:

Been loving this one for a minute.  Nice vocal.

Midterm Kiki

Studying for midterms.  Grad school is good.  I’m still enjoying it but dang there really aren’t enough hours in the day.  I am stressed cuz I don’t ever have time for anything.  Sigh.  There’s a beautiful bright light at the end of this tunnel and so I will just keep trudging through. 🙂

Dave Owen is at Smart Bar today.  Go check him out if you’re in town.

Also Natives at Crocodile is tonight. Ike Release is playing.

Should be a fun night all round.  I’m excited that I get to see my dnb buddies. ❤

You Still Here Kiki?

Yes I’m here.  Didja miss me?  Last week was hectic.  I ended up staying home for a full week.  I got a lot of essay stuff done for my masters apps.  I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to write, but know it was cuz I was actually really busy and not just cuz I was being lazy. 🙂

Fall is upon us and it seems like my schedule keeps getting busier and busier.  I’m not complaining.  I am not a person that likes to be idle.

Last week was a good music week.  I saw Martyn in Millenium Park at the Sonar Festival which was awesome.  Falty DL and Marcel Dettmann performed at the Smart Bar after parties.  Mixed at a dnb rave.  Really good times.  Plastician is this week.  As an electronic music enthusiast, I really can’t complain much these days. 🙂

Over-age Kiki

So me and Daniela went to see Caspa at Smart Bar yesterday.  I like dubstep.  I don’t listen to it as much as dnb but I do enjoy the genre and all its sub categories.  Yesterday I was up for some rowdy party dubstep.  Apparently no one told me and Daniela that it was a 22 year olds only party.  LOL.  I don’t know why I keep being surprised every time I go to his shows.  He has a huge following.  He’s totally grabbed the new ravers crowd.  Me and Daniela were some of the oldest people there.  These kids love him.  Camera phones, autographs, etc.  It’s awesome.  I love watching it but at the same time it’s definitely a reminder that we are old.  It was seriously like a rave in there except we were in a club and it’s 2010.  I had fun nonetheless.  Caspa is  a good dj.  Good times.

Tinsel Kiki

I’m feeling super festive.  I love the holiday season cuz everyone’s down to hang out and I love holiday parties.

My weekend was really fun.  Got some Christmas shopping done, Rusko at Smart Bar was the ultra party and Bisl’s housewarming party was a blast too.

This week/weekend is busy too.  Mixing at Smart Bar on thursday for Shakedown (will do a seperate post on that), 2 holiday parties, 1 kiddie bday party and a holiday brunch.  At least it will get me out of my apartment.  That’s my only worry these days.  LOL.  Will it get me out of my apartment?  Yes??  Be there in 5. 😉

Rap Attack Kiki

It’s friday.  Woot.  I’m playing Smart Bar with Dj Rap and Cringer tonight so if you’re in the Chi definitely come out.  I’m on from 12 to 130.  I can’t even tell you the last time I saw Dj Rap.  I swear it was in like 2000.

I’m hoping the weekend gets this lazy bitch behaviour out of my system and I act better next week.

Kathy and her bf Matt are still here and my friend Jon is in town too.  I feel like I’ve had friends visiting non stop lately.  I will say that one of the things that is a perk of unemployment is I get to hang out whenever which is cool.

Kiki is 33

I’ve had a pretty awesome week.  It’s my bday tomorrow.  I’m having a nice dinner with some friends.

The partying continues for the moment though.  It’s funny that I never go out and I’ve pretty much been out all this week.  Last night Calculon was still here so we went to Smart Bar and saw 12th Planet.  He killed it.  I was super into his set.  Smart Bar again tonight.  LTJ woot.  Submorphics is opening.  Woot squared.  I would have to give this week a 10/10… ha that also happens to be my date of birth.  Groan.  Yes I’m corny.

Enjoy your weekend folks.

Dubstep Kiki

So Chicago only comes out for big names I guess.  Andy C was packed last night and everyone was acting like they rave out to dnb on a regular basis.  It was very interesting to watch.  There was definitely a lot of rowdiness in the place.  Stunna killed it. 🙂

Going to see Skream tonight.  I like going to big dubstep shows.  They are fun.  I don’t necessary like going to Smart Bar for 2 days in a row but what’s a girl to do?
