Batman at the Go Go!


On Saturday January 12, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus hosted a happy hour swing session at the elegant Jupiter Disco on the outskirts of East Williamsburg. Or perhaps we should call it a Bat Bash, since there seemed to be a peculiar Batman theme! The Phast Man played the “Batman Theme” twice (once at the beginning of the night, and again in the middle), he wore his Bat Socks, the Bat Signal was projected on the wall behind the DJ, and the lovely Miss Nancy Gardner baked Bat Cookies! It was as if the Bat Cave had been turned into a groovy discotheque.

The Boogaloo Bag writers were very happy to see so many of their great friends at the Bat Happening, too. They all partook in the eating of the Bat Cookies and diggin’ the groovy sounds.

For four straight hours, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus played his records: Some Mod jazz things, some funky things, some soul things, a couple of pop things, a few nice organ grooves, some things with Cuban rhythms–all of it groovy.

When time was up, the night was still young. The Boog gathered up his records and Nancy gathered up the uneaten cookies. They then accompanied their friends Matt Clarke and Big Eugene on the L Train to Manhattan, where they all went to Otto’s Shrunken Head for Soulfinger, the great new soul dance party hosted by the DJs Connie T Empress and Girlsoul. There, Nancy put the cookies out and folks were happy to eat them. After about an hour or so, DJ Jumpy dropped in and he ate the last one.


MMMMMM!!!  Yummy chocolate covered Bat Cookies!!!

Here’s a list of all the records played by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus at the Batman Happy Hour Affair:

None of these records are for sale. Some of them have clips to the youtubes–check them out on your own Bat Time!
