Motor City



The best thing about being a dj in a bar is, of course, spinning whatever you want. And the drinks are free. Being a female dj in a rock bar has extra benefits. You are an oddity. You are a girl doing what the boys usually do, and the boys like that. They will lavish attention on you. They will buy you drinks, not realizing that, for you, the drinks are free. They will be floored that you own records by Jawbreaker and Helmet and Sepultura and Pantera. They will be impressed that you can seamlessly mix those classics of your college years in with the impressive contemporary works of the Hold Steady, Les Savy Fav, The National, and even Beirut. On nights when you're behind the turntables you are every rock boy's dream.
