Saturday: Hurrah’s 4 Year Anniversary at Medusa

November 5th, 2010 · 1 Comment

hurrah 4th anniversary Saturday: Hurrahs 4 Year Anniversary at MedusaThis Saturday marks the 4th anniversary of Hurrah at Medusa with Shawn Ryan & Chris Rogy.  Congrats!

4 years of dance music soul searching, verbose copy and sweaty dancing?!?! It’s true! We managed to survive through the golden Sal’s era, floods, the recession, L&I inspections, that time Chris played Rage Against the Machine, that time I played Usher… what a trip. So let’s go 2AM STRONG in the rave cave like it’s our first & make this another legendary night in the rave cave!!! As always, we have plenty of new tracks, classics & surprise party jams. Sound good? – Shawn

Note: Hurrah is a dj night, drinking may be involved, partying is recommended.

Saturday: The Hurrah Birthday Party

April 30th, 2010 · No Comments

hurrah birthday Saturday: The Hurrah Birthday Party

This Saturday, Hurrah presents The Birthday Party! Happy Birthday Shawn!

This Saturday at Hurrah we’re having the birthday party! Unfortunately I’m not referring to Nick Cave’s first band (which would be awesome). I’m talkin about MY BIRTHDAY PARTY! It’s the time of year where the turntable Taurus rears his cake spattered head once again. And to help keep the celebration moving, I enlisted the help of Gentle Giant and Peter Dragontail. If you caught the Giant at any of the last 4AM parties, then you know he’s got the most mind bending and mysterious grooves of any young DJ in this city. As for Dragontail, I’m sure you’re familiar with his graphic stylings for Hurrah, Steppin Out, Grimace Federation & PYT. Fun fact: he’s also a reclusive producer of finely tuned pop and italo. Oh hell yes! So yet again, Hurrah has a night of music from the future and fun times in store for you. Aaaaand it’s my birthday party. The only gift you need to bring is yourself.

- Shawn
