Day Two of the great DJ cultural exchange program took place on Saturday June 4 when Nogood Nick was guest DJ at WHAM-O WATUSI, hosted by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus at the Bootleg Bar in Bushwick, Brooklyn. The WHAM is a little more raucous than Rip! Rig! Panic!, which took place the night before. At the WHAM, the DJs play a lot of jumpin’ R&B, garage rock and rock’n’roll records. On this night, inspired by the presence of Nogood Nick, a fine soul music DJ, an extra helping of stomping soul records were played. Indeed, at one point, Mr. Nick turned to The Boog and declared, “I’m going into my Northern set here…” and he proceeded to play some slammin’ records. Man, you should have been there!!

Everyone who attended the two days of this DJ cultural exchange can attest that it was a great success and there were many requests for it to happen again. This will depend on quirks in calendars and schedules, of course, but who knows, perhaps it can happen again soon.
