Good seeing everyone at Palihouse last night! Another great crowd in the lounge, and it was a kick getting to spin for the legend herself, Cyndi Lauper. Memories of rocking out to "She's So Unusual" in sixth grade came flooding back with a vengeance.

Derek and Ian got things rolling and Daisy kept the party cranked with a mix of 80s synth and hot dance tunes. The crowd was really into it and the vibe was salubrious and ennervated.

Thanks to all the folks who love some good lounge and have made Palihouse a vibrant place to meet and relax on Fridays. We're taking a hiatus for a week or two, but we'll be back with more grooves soon after (with more cool records!). Check here for return details.

Here's Derek's playlist, a mix of blues, soul and Sixties pop:
