iPod Jukebox: An MP3 DJ Night

"You know what it's like for a friend to pull a few CDs off the shelf and say "Hey, check this out?" Well, the technology [at iPod Jukebox] allowed 13 or so people to do the same favor for a crowd of strangers. Pretty cool."
-- Rob Pegoraro, The Washington Post

Next iPod Jukebox Event: Wednesday, April 14, 2010, at Cafe Saint-Ex, Washington D.C.

iPod Jukebox Turns 21


Last night -- wait, it's still this morning -- we set a new record for DJs at an iPod Jukebox event with 21 MP3Js signing up to play their tunes. (There were 23 if you count the night's hosts.) We would like to thank everyone who came out, especially those who brought their iPods.

We'll have the setlists up ASAP.

USA Today Discovers iPod Jukebox


Better Late Than Never: iPod Jukebox got a mention (though not by name) in a Feb. 1 USA Today story about "iPod America." Here's the relevant bit:

iPods also are turning the average club-goer into a tastemaker for the masses. Cafe Saint-Ex in Washington, D.C., hosts a monthly party in its Gate 54 lounge during which iPod owners are allowed to plug their devices into the sound system and give fellow revelers a taste of their own collections.

"We've found that everyone wants to be a DJ for 15 minutes," General Manager John Snellgrove says. "Most of the music people play is pretty modern. Sometimes things are a bit off, but nobody boos or anything. A lot of times people wind up posting their set lists on Web sites so people can see what music they heard."

We're looking forward to seeing everyone on Wednesday night. We'll get started around 9 p.m.
