Chinese New Year, and Radio Riel party

With the Mardi Gras parade set to go on Friday night, Steelhead's usual Friday dance was shifted to Saturday. This week was the celebration of the Chinese New Year (also known as Lunar New Year). Though ironically is usually prompts everyone into wearing Japanese outfits :-)

As the festivities began drawing to a close I headed to Caledon Penzance where a party celebrating the official opening of the new Radio Riel offices was underway. Any excuse :-)

Sadly for Lionel Ritchie, we weren't dancing on the ceiling.

I was in a strange mood. I had not prepared a playlist and was just going by feel, and even then had things like Popcorn, Reel Big Fish, Falco, Robbie Williams, Front 242 and of course Weird Al Yankovic, are not usually the sort of things you'd expect to hear in the same set. Meh, they were warned :-)
