Soul Parlour

DJ night

Editorial Review

There's a certain joy to sharing music with friends. It's not "Look what I discovered first!" so much as "I know you'll love this, so check it out!" That's the beauty behind Soul Parlour, a night of musical gifting hosted by DJ Jahsonic (of Marvin's soulful Main Ingredient party) and Kennisha Ford. Anyone can sign up to DJ a 15-minute set from their iPod or iPhone, though the organizers urge would-be selectors to pick "the best, rarest and most interesting songs" from their record collections, and they reserve the right to "Sandman" guests (a la "Showtime at the Apollo") if the sets aren't up to par. There's no cover charge, and you're guaranteed to hear something interesting.
