One turntable and a mi­cro­phone

Pasatiempo - - Mixed Media -

Do you have one of those friends who won’t stop fid­dling with the stereo? You know the type: ra­dio di­als and iPod skip func­tions pro­vide them with hours of en­ter­tain­ment while you qui­etly bite the in­side of your lip, and they can yam­mer for hours about their own mu­sic col­lec­tion, even while you’re try­ing to lis­ten to yours.

They’re not bad peo­ple; they’re just ob­sessed with mu­sic. Be­cause you love (or at least tol­er­ate) them, you should think about tak­ing them to the Ear Sa­lon. At 7 p.m. Sun­day, Oct. 17, The Candyman’s Lit­tle Wing mu­sic-per­for­mance and ed­u­ca­tion space (851 St. Michael’s Drive, 699-5470) in­vites mu­sic lovers and au­ral ob­ses­sives to play DJ for friends and strangers.

Each par­tic­i­pat­ing DJ gets up to 12 min­utes to play what­ever he or she would like, and be­fore or af­ter each set, pre­sen­ters are en­cour­aged to talk about the mu­sic they spin. Usu­ally held on the sec­ond Sun­day of the month, each sa­lon is pre­sented by a guest host who gets a whop­ping 30 to 45 min­utes to wow you with his or her al­bum col­lec­tions and mu­si­cal wis­dom. We sug­gest you stick around, too. You might en­joy your­self. Be­sides, your pals’ an­noy­ing mu­sic habits aren’t go­ing to dis­ap­pear any­time soon. If you can’t beat them, you might as well join them. Drinks and snacks are avail­able; ad­mis­sion is by do­na­tion. For more in­for­ma­tion visit www.can­dy­man­lit­tlew­ing.com/earsa­lon.html.
