On that note...

Hey hey!!! Hope you guys didn't miss me too much. Busy busy Alex as usual. I was just sending out some downloads when I realized I haven't written a diary entry in a bit. It's funny cause I could have sworn I did. A crap ton happens to me on a daily basis, so I guess it's just a matter of what to write about. Did I tell you guys about the Space Palace Party? No? Awesome! Ok, so I jump in this cab and go to Brooklyn because I don't want to be late for my show futzing around with the train, and as I'm riding I notice that the scene is changing quite a bit. I mean it's really getting seedy... like shady mcshade town. Even worse, when we arrive at the address, there is no place in sight that I can see would be suitable for a house party. I pay the cab driver, but not before I ask for his reassurance that we are at the right place like 4 times. He kicks me out, and I'm just standing there. Lucky for me these two guys spotted me get out of the cab and walk right up to me. I'm thinking "Shit! I forgot my mace". They ask me if I'm looking for a party. Wondering if we are talking about the same kind of party, I hesitate to answer. The one guy says "The Space Palace Party", and I sigh with relief. For a minute there I really thought I was going to have to kick one of these guys in the balls and make a run for it, but thankfully that wasn't the case.

The building was a typical Brooklyn brownstone (In this case, a grey-stone). I venture down some concrete stairs, into a dark hallway, and past a large curtain made of old VHS cassette tape strips. Cool! As I enter the main room I'm greeted by some of the nicest folks I've met in a long time. Not the 'snooty-hipster' type, but the really chill 'I'm not into fads, and I'm not a poser' type. They welcome me, give me booze and make sure I'm as comfy as possible. The light in the space was super nice too. There was a guy doing wall projections using colored oils that changed the entire space each time he did something new. Kelsey met me there about 20 min after I arrived. Everyone thought we were going to play a full set with our entire band, but weeks before the party we decided to surprise everyone with an acoustic set instead. Turns out, It was just the thing the party needed to get going.

I had such a killer time at The Space Palace. All the bands that played brought thier own unique flavor to the space. We partied all night! All of us! Sweaty, drunk and high on music. Oh yeah, there was this punch they were serving that was out of control! I don't know what the heck was in that stuff, but after drinking one cup I felt like I had 3 cups! Sszzurp? Jungle juice? Whatever, it was goooooood!

There were a few other really cool things that happened, but I'm not allowed to write them on the internet. If you want to find out you should come to the next party. If you're not sure where it is I'm not going to tell you that either. Google it!
