Sunday Soul Unlimited – AVL – February 13th 2011

Special Event & Special Broadcast Time
this week’s program is Sunday Soul Unlimited, and that’s what we call it when we’re going to be broadcasting in the wild. This week we will be in Asheville North Carolina, at BoBo Gallery – 22 Lexington Avenue Asheville, NC 28801 – and you can come!

I am pretty excited to be playing at BoBo Gallery – it’s run by our friend Brad who used to own the Top in San Francisco. That’s where Acid House was born for me, and many other heads in SF. So it’s a reunion and a get down all at the same time in his new spot in Asheville.

We will be starting up at 10pm eastern time – typically Sunday Soul begins at 10pm pacific time, so if you’re back home remember we’ll begin at 8pm instead of the usual time.

  2. Sunshine:

    that was madness… and i liked it. thank you.

  3. Sunshine:

    At about 4am last friday I woke up in the dark of my apartment after an hour of sleep. I laid back down in my soft, warm bed and closed my eyes again. Then I realized why my alarm had gone off so early. I had a 6:10 am flight to the east coast. I knew that if I stayed there, all warm in my bed, with my eyes closed for another moment that it would suddenly be noon and I would miss my flight. So I slipped my feet over the edge of the bed, and let gravity pull them to the floor. I was up.

    I flew to Raleigh by way of Houston and connected with Randy of Hypersonic and we went to the hotel , found Tre, and went off to find some food. We found amazing Japanese food in North Carolina and were delighted. I played that night in Raleigh with Tre, Billie Blaze and J-Star. Sol Collins met up with us there and planned to join us for the rest of the trip. The night started out slowly, but we really got it together by the end and it was a good night. In the morning we piled into Tre’s car and drove up into the mountains toward Asheville. First we stopped at the Falls Motel and met up with Sarah and sang happy birthday to her, we chilled out a little, but then we hit the road and got to the BoBo Gallery and set of the night ahead of us.

    While I was setting up I reconnected with Brad – the force behind BoBo, and the man who brought San Francisco it’s first home for Acid House. It was a splendid reunion, and completely energizing to share our stories of the past and all that’s happened for us over the last 18 years. We conjured locations, inspiration, and the faces of sweet wonderful friends. I knew it was going to be a great night. Magic was already in the air. We went over to the restaurant across the street and had a feast with Marie, and Sarah, and Tre and everyone. I especially liked our waitress Kyle and asked her to please bring desert at the end and give us some space to make a really big deal out of Sarah’s birthday. She agreed, and I slipped her twenty bucks. After the meal Kyle brought over a piece of cake and we got on our chairs and howled happy birthday to the unembarrassable Sarah.

    The saturday night at BoBo was legendary. Josh opened up with a fantastic set. Tre took over and brought his beautiful depth to the room. Then I began. Hillary took off her pants, Gabby curled up under the decks and gave me a firm spanking while I was playing, and everybody danced. The place was absolutely packed, the windows were steamed up and dripping wet. I played for hours longer than I was supposed to, legally allowed to, and we lost our minds and cheered and danced and left all our weighted cares somewhere in the clutter of the scraps of paper on the dancefloor. A night to remember. A night to never forget.

    We went back to Brad and Elizabeth’s house and talked. We went to have breakfast, but somehow I got rock stared out and ended up being the only one served a meal. I didn’t actually notice that Brad only fixed breakfast for me and no one else, but later in the evening, shortly before sunrise, Tre pointed out that we’d gone there for all of us to eat, and somehow Mr. fancy-pants here was the only one of us who was full and sleepy and content. So we hastily said goodnight, piled into the car and drove out into the dawn in search of breakfast for everyone else. Finally, with everyone full, we slept.

    This brings us to sunday. I woke up at 3 in the afternoon, and crawled out on the balcony of the hotel with a cup of coffee. Sarah made breakfast and poured more coffee. We sat together in chairs watching the chimney rock waterfall and talked and laughed for hours. Then it was time to make it to town and set up for Sunday Soul Unlimited. We arrived before anyone else, so we decided to take a walk around the sleeping sunday Asheville after dark. We found two cafe’s and had coffee at both. We sat in the downtown square and talked about the drum circle they have there, and the unique nature of Asheville and her people. Marie and her friends join us, and then Brad and Elizabeth joined us and we got together for a delicious meal at an amazing tapas place with purple walls. We were talking and laughing and having a blast when someone pointed out that I had to start Sunday Soul in 15 minutes. I got up, said thank you, and all but ran back to BoBo to start the show.

    I arrived to find Nigel – who was there despite a sick daughter, and a very long weekend – playing fantastic vinyl. I smiled and gave him a nudge. He made like he was going to stop, but I asked him to please keep playing. I turned on the transmitter and noted that this was Nigel warming up. I didn’t begin the archive until he was done. The night was low key compared to the night before. A few friends came again, and some people seemed to be there because they’d definitely missed something amazing the night before. Almost no one seemed to understand that this wasn’t a “Sunshine Jones Live/DJ Set” but it was Sunday Soul. I spent some time reflecting on that. Typically I get pretty down on myself when people don’t know what’s happening, or understand what I’m doing. I write, make beautiful flyers, and try as best I can to express myself and let people who are interested know what’s happening. But I can’t take it personally. It’s not personal. It’s Sunday Soul… It’s really difficult as a performer, musician and a DJ not to give in to what the people in front of me are aching for. I want to be able to express the same intimacy and vulnerability of a transmission from my little treehouse when I’m playing out in the real world, but that’s a tall order. Not only for technical reasons, of which there are many, but also because of the actual energy in the room, and all my instincts as a musician to work the crowd into some sort of communion and united motion. Sunday Soul is something different. It is where I express myself fearlessly, vulnerably, and openly. It’s where you come to me, and find the thread of your own heart in what I’m doing and step into my stream. I give it all I’ve got and it’s humbling and inspirational for me to see that not only am I devoted to this experience, but I also have a long way to go. Sunday Soul Unlimited is an effort on my part to open my heart wider, to challenge myself and the audience, in person, to slow down, feel more, trust more, love more, and come with me – wherever I roam.

    In the morning I shared the last few hours in Asheville pretending it was not valentine’s day, and we warmed our feet in the bright sun and talked and laughed and really enjoyed ourselves. Then I headed off to the airport and flew to Chicago, transferred to another flight, and found myself on Monday at 10pm ish standing curbside at SFO and headed back to my little apartment in the lower haight to climb back into that warm bed and go back to sleep.

    This weekend was really special for me. I didn’t want to come home. Thank you to everyone who was involved, and came out to dance and cheer, and support and celebrate with us. My love and devotion belongs to you. I love you. Thank you.

  15. Erica Oursland:

    I listened to Sunday Soul from the comfort of my own bed on 90hz and it was beautiful! I was coming down with a head cold on Sunday, so going back out wasn’t happening. I’m definitely gonna tune in more often this year with that much great music available for free!! It’s awesome coming through my iPod!!

  16. Tony Covine:

    All I can say is WOW! Asheville, you guys really lucked out! I’m listening to Sunday Soul just grooving at work, imagining what Saturday night must have been like in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina that i hold close to my heart. To be able to experience both those mountains and Sunshine’s deep affetion for the music that moves us all must have truely been magical. Honestly, I’m a little jealous, but also hopeful to be able to make that trip one day when Sunshine returns to the Aseville. Maybe, one day, he can come on down to Tampa and get down with us!-Much Love

  17. Peter Rothman:

    You could feel the vibe 3000 miles away…
