    Default Worst Night Ever?

    Alright, I know everyone's played some shitty shows but damn, last night may take the cake. Double set at a house party with a friend of mine, I start at midnight and about 20 mins in the cops come and I've got people yelling at me to turn it down. The cops leave, they yell at me to turn it up. This goes back and forth for about another 40 minutes, eventually I get some drunk asshole who decides it's a good idea to yank the cords out of my setup to make a point about the volume. This of course almost blows out the speakers and as the room gets filled with the horrible sound of technical error he's threatening to hit me in the face unless it stops in 5 seconds, he even gave me the countdown.

    Finally I get everything reconnected and of course it's time for every girl there to ask me to youtube miley cyrus or at least let them plug in their ipods, probably my biggest pet peeve while DJing. An hour and a half later I'm one of the last people at this party and I'm disconnecting everything and getting it packed up. I go upstairs to find a drink as I was told that I get to drink for free, grab a beer out of the case and BAM I'm getting yelled at for stealing by the drunkest of the drunk bitches. This of course turns into a naughty word fight and ends with me walking 30 blocks home with a backpack full of expensive and heavy equipment as my ride had left and I was no longer "allowed" to stay at the house to sleep it off.

    Rejoice if you don't live in Salt Lake City

    Damn dude.. That really takes the cake. I've had similar things happen but not all at once. One time everyone kept accidentally unplugging my main power supply every 5 minutes. So frustrating but nowhere near as bad as your night!

    I HATE people who want you to stop everything so they can plug in their iPod for some shitty Justin Bieber bollocks. Fuck off and let me get on with it, or ask ME the DJ to play something. I probably won't play it, but feel free to ask...
