Party

#TBT - S/O TO THE WELL OGs: BRODI, JEROME LOL, THEE MIKE B & ACID GIRLS

Sup fools, it's GLENJAMN aka the "Cultural Historian"  reminiscing about another tite time when I kicked it at The Well before there even was The Well LA.  Since I got a rad reception w/ my 1st #TBT post2nd #TBT post and my 3rd #TBT post... I'm gonna go in again.  So, lemme go and share another rad moment with y'all via photos and/or videos (b/c God gave me two hands for two cameras)...

Let's take it back to the OG Well LA spot I think on a random turnup night on January 7th, 2011...

KABLAMMO.  Like I do with all the other previous #TBTs, I gotta hit you with a fire video from that night to just jump start the brain and get the memories back and flowing.  I'm stoned and I'm about to catch a flight to Paris for the Bromance 5 Year Anniversary (oh I got stories in store soon)... so lemme take you back to that day when that OG Well spot decided to throw a "Jefferson turnup" and all the all stars from the previous #TBTs were there to support as I brought that French bearded DJ when he was slightly chubbier... Anyways, yeah, above is a lil video of Louis doing his thing...

DECEMBER IRL UPDATE! ... Since I like to be up front and honest about everything I write on this blog, I have to say that I meant to start writing this blog in November before I went on my Paris trip... and then I reopened this blog thingie today and I'm here to finish off what I started after being all French and shit...

But, yeah it's the last week of 2016, and this is a great time to reflect, I mean the shit that went on in this particular blog post happened almost 6 years ago (give or take like a week) so let's look back at some tight shit before the shitty year that was 2016 (RIP. Prince, Princess Leia, Democracy)

OG WELL tho

Let's take it back to that rad little shack near the Shrine that we used to party at back in the day... the home of some epic parties... And a place full of a lot of tite memories of when partying was more effortless than a sponsored thing.  When the vibe was what dictated the night.  And this night was fuckin vibey as tite. 

First off, let's give it up once again for my old roommate(s), the ACID GIRLS aka the dudes that knew about all this tite music before we were even up on that shit... Go back to this blog post to know more about how important Jamie and Greg were back in the day, and if it weren't for them, I wouldn't really be into this party scene b/c they definitely carried the vibes most of the times I was around them.  The vid above is a nice little spotlight onto the homies and strangers that just came together that night.  PS: I am literally flashing my light on and off on people, so I definitely had my annoying spotlight on strangers' faces game was def. going strong during this night in 2011...

The best part about the above video is us giving a shoutout to 4LOKO OG formula via JEROME LOL's faded ass.  I don't remember if Jerome even played that night but he was definitely the star in most of these vids hahahaha.  The music is fucking amazing and most of us homies are probably faded off of whatever they used to put into 4LOKO back in the day.  Like I said, this post is about the OGs, and this was the OG gatorade during those drunken sweaty nights in South LA. Hollllllllerrrrr

Thee Man, Thee Myth, Thee Holy Ship Fam

Thee Man, Thee Myth, Thee Holy Ship Fam

Speaking of OGs, S/O to the iconic Thee Mike B playing his single, "Tomorrow" that he had just done w/ Fool's Gold's Sammy Bananas (what a mouthful).  OK, a little backstory, this song was sort of that perfect blend of French Touch and LA Titeness that made this song so vibey.  When I first heard it, I couldn't stop dancing to it.  I'm watching this vid again and reliving this moment and you can just see how the crowd at The Well was now a crew.  A group that new tight shit was gonna happen on the random.  I mean, The Acid Girls & Mike B were almost enough for me that night, but it got cooler and more surprisey as the night went on... Also, comment at "2:38" in the video pretty much sums it up...  PS: Mike is a partner at that new tite Silverlake near Speranza called #THEFRIENDBAR and it's fucking classy and vibey.  There.

PS: Another breakout star of these old vids, the girl on the left <3

More buds more vibes... we're gonna move on from Mike's tite set (PS: this guy is coming with me to HOLY SHIP!!!) ... and move onto some more vibey shit...

ANDDDD... As a bonus blast of OG waves, we have a vid of the Madly Decent friend, Paul Devro, playing some fucking UFFIE in this bitch in 2011.  ADD SUV 4 LIFE. *Side Note: Mama Han once picked up me and Paul from the airport and she really thought he was a pleasant friend of mine.

And now, for the finale of this blog post, I wanted to take it back to how Louis Brodinski was there since the beginning as an OG of the Well... Whenever this fool was in town and a random turnup was going on at the OG spot, HE WAS DOWN.  He always played that European fire that we didn't have here in the states yet and he always got the chicks swooning without being difficult or anything.  Brodinski is one of my best homies, but he's also one of my all-time-favorite DJs, so let's end this year's round of blog posts on a high note.  

Yo, this shit was fucking fire.  I just watched this whole video just to re-acclimate with the vibes of 2011.  Man what a great year in Dance Music.  Now with that said... here's me going through some vibey photos b/c this particular post had some GEMS of the buds!

OK... with all that said, I'm gonna take this last part of this post to say that it's been a rad 1st year doing some stuff w/ The Well and as you can see I'm also an OG that's been around since the beginning... let's keep doing these stories of the present and past and I'll show you a goood time.
