80s/indie/electro music night at boardner's in hollywood
09.03.2009 - 10.03.2009 58 °F
That night, I was pretty worn out. But I still hadn't been out to a club or bar in L.A. and I felt like the time was right. So I got myself together and walked a couple of blocks over to Boardner's on Cherokee for their 80s/indie rock/electro music night. I got there about 10.30 and the place was pretty dead. I thought I would at least order one drink and if things didn't get better I would take off after that. By the way, my standard Bombay Sapphire with tonic cost $11. Eeek.
So I walked around and they had two rooms. One was straight 80s pop. The other was DJ mixed dance tunes. Both were good, but I was a bit self conscious being by myself. All of a sudden this girl came up to me and introduced herself as Angie. I told her my story of being all alone and she said that she is an airline attendant and is always having to go out in different cities all alone. She said that she wanted me to join her and her friends and that they would take care of me. Alright!
After that we danced and danced and danced. All her friends were so nice. And by midnight the place was actually packed. Sometimes I would leave them to see what was happening in the other room and I tried to request Little Boots or the Ting Tings from the DJ. But he didn't have them. I did talk to him and his manager a bit and they were really cool as well. Told me about the music scene there and what they're doing. Interesting stuff!
Finally, the club was closing around 2am and I headed home. Angie and her friends were going to Denny's or some other greasy spoon for drunk food but I was tired and decided to just head home. The one guy kept calling me a rookie. Ha!!!
PS - It goes without saying that there were ridulously eccentric as well as hipper than hip hipsters there. And they did represent the CLE with a remix of Kid Cudi's Day and Night. Suh-weet.
