We Fought the Big One

DJnight - indie

Editorial Review

It's always a good feeling for DJs when someone comes up and asks, "Hey, what was that last song you played?" Most of the time that means two things: 1) The person enjoyed the song enough to ask a stranger about it, and 2) The DJ succeeded in finding a song that at least somebody hadn't heard before. This has surely been a common occurrence the first Friday of every month for the past three years at Marx Cafe. That's when We Fought the Big One takes over the Mount Pleasant bar to play some of the best obscure post-punk, synth-rock, shoegaze songs you've never heard before.
