Party Ben’s European Vacation Tour

mojo-photo-europe.jpgLike I mentioned in this week’s Top Ten, your grammatically-challenged guest blogger Party Ben is heading off on a European DJ tour tomorrow. It’s pretty cool, since, honestly, I’m not really that popular of a DJ, but somehow I managed to cobble together appearances in Poland, Germany, Belgium and France over the course of about three weeks. Because of the tight schedule (and probable unreliability of internet connections at the, ahem, budget accommodations I’ll be patronizing) it’s unclear how often I’ll be able to keep up with my Riff duties, but I’ll do my best to post updates now and then on What Life is Like on the Road for a Basically Unknown DJ Guy, or Random Cultural Trends Sweeping the European Continent with Enough Significance to be Obvious Even to a Drunk Tourist. Hopefully the MoJo Arts & Culture Team (I’m capitalizing a lot here, aren’t I?) can cover my beat—i.e., anything that happens in the world of Arcade Fire and M.I.A.—while I’m gone, and I’ll be back in December.

If for some reason you’re more curious about specific locations and venues you can look at the schedule on my website here. Now I’m off to enjoy the favorable exchange rates and general love for Americans that’s shared all over the—what? What are you saying? Not so much? Ah.
