Well, I found myself with an opportunity to spin tunes at the Denver 2012 Drupalcon conference party. Yes, Acquia (my company) sponsored it. So maybe it's no coincidence that I got the gig.... Nonetheless, I did need to get past the organizing committee (which means my style couldn't suck; but I didn't need to be a big-name guy, either. Lucky thing....)
And, let me just say it: I had a blast. There were nearly 2,000 people in the party, and that's the most I've ever played in front of.
I played from 7:30pm to 1:15am. I had only expected (and planned) to play about 3 hours.
