Paul Gill's 40th Birthday 3/23/07

Friday night was a rollickin' good time at Magnetic Field as we celebrated my bandmate Paul's 40th birthday. As if to prove that life doesn't end at 40, the band played a wild and somewhat drunken set with great performances by a bunch of regulars. Then our stellar soundman Chris broke down the equipment so I could DJ for a couple of hours. Here's what you heard (or what you missed if you were a little too drunk to remember):
