Wherein we can count to 600.

On Sunday we had twenty-seven bands play here, from noon until midnight. That's definitely a record. And, as it turns out, one of those bands -- the third one, Emilia's Rose -- is the 600th band to play at DNA Lounge since we re-opened in 2001! That's somewhat approximate, of course, since it's based on what's on our calendar, and there are sometimes last-minute lineup changes that I don't know about. And we quibble about the distinction between "band" and "dj". But hey, 600 bands, that's kind of a lot.

I didn't realize this before the show because I didn't actually get the lineup of the bands who would be playing until halfway through the event...

It was also our youngest event to date: something like 87% of the people who attended were under 21. (We track this by counting the wristbands we give to drinkers, so it is also somewhat approximate.)

    Did anyone take pictures? I can imagine the fun you'd have in picking, uploading and labelling images of 27 bands, heh.

    Congrats. Looks like the under 21 license is paying off!

    I take it you've decided to continue posting the updates here?

    Now you reap the rewards of facing down The Man. But do not be too proud of this technological marvel you have constructed, etc etc
