The Set Lists

Alright, gang, let’s vote for who has the best set list this past week at quizzo. We had three contestants. Kirt DJ’d at the Bards, Clare was at the Black Sheep, and Chris was in the mix at the Good Dog. After the jump, you can see their set lists, then you can vote for which one you liked best in the poll at the right. Whoever has the most votes by Friday at noon wins the $40 gift certificate to the Devil’s Alley.

First up, we had Kirt M., who rocked the Bards on Tuesday night.
I’m a graduate student in Penn’s anthropology department, where I study linguistic anthropology. From Pittsburgh, where our football team doesn’t perpetually suckle at the teat of failure. I went to college in Binghamton, NY,which is the metropolitan equivalent of a week-old blackhead on your step-sister’s greasy forehead, where I DJ’ed briefly with WHRW, the college station. I’ve been going to quizzo since I moved to Philly in August of 04; my
friends think I use my love of useless information to cover up my addiction to Irish-themed establishments.

Nice job, Kirt. I’ver always heard that the way to get Philadelphians to vote for you is to insult the Eagles and use terms like “suckle at the teat” while doing so. Here are his songs:
1. Sabotage, Beastie Boys
2. Mother, Danzig
3. Sun’s Gonna Rise, Citizen Cope
4. Louie Louie, The Kingsmen
5. Wave of Mutilation, The Pixies
6. There You Go, Johnny Cash
7. Things that go hump in the Night, Grand Buffet
8. Pretty Vacant, Sex Pistols
9. Thai lounge music,
10. Help me scrape the mucus off my brain, Ween
11. Your mama, Kennedy
12. Devil’s Haircut, Beck
13. Gangsta’s Paradise, Coolio
14. Johnny B Goode, Chuck Berry

He apparently drew inspiration for his set list from his shirt. 03-10-06 001.jpg
A street-walkin’ cheetah with a heart full o’ napalm, Chris R hails from Philadelphia, an urban center in southeastern Pennsylvania. Following a standard upbringing (summers in Rangoon, luge lessons) he discovered a
love of travel and the collection of obscure musics, on vinyl if at all possible. Four of these five things are true: he was living in the Arabian Gulf during 9/11, he worked as an election monitor in Bosnia, he trained dolphins professionally, he had a show on West Philly Pirate Radio in the ’90s, and/or he was robbed by Mexican police. He likes pina coladas, and gettin’ caught in the rain. Turn ons: foreign accents, good grammar, geography and history questions, restaurant gift certificates. Turn offs: Northeast Philly accents, unnecessary quotation marks, entire rounds of reality TV questions which negate any gains made via geography and history questions, drunken photos of himself posted on the web. Chris describes his DJ style as “aggresively confusing.”
