just spotted this . . . wired is sponsoring an event in conjunction with mwny called 'lapdance' (at remote lounge, 18 july), featuring a bevy of laptop dj's. while the article doesn't say for sure, i'd be surprised if 'live' wasn't being used at some point . . . in any case, if you're in nyc, this should definitely be worth checking out . . .
it looks cool enough, but as a 'pc' guy, i'm a little bummed that the event is featuring only mac-based artists . . . the wired article drives the nail in hard:
"New York is a Macintosh town. The city is the center of America's creative industries, which are dominated by Macs.
" 'Everyone I know uses a Mac,' said one New York graphic designer. 'It's strange, I hardly ever see a PC.'
"On July 18, Wired News will showcase the finest Macintosh technology shaking up the New York club scene.
"The event, called Lapdance, will feature some of New York's hottest PowerBook DJs. Instead of records on turntables, these audio artists spin tunes from their laptops."
here's a link to the full article at wired:
and to remote lounge, where the event is being held:
