The streets need to be fed. This mix entitled Try The Veal is part of a three-course serving of music I just threw together for my enjoyment.
Why veal, you may ask? Back in the day, comedians would close out their sets by saying things like “I’m here ’til (insert day of week here) don’t forget to tip your waitress, and try the (insert random dish here).” During the Vaudville era of comedy, when comics would tell jokes in restaurants, they were known for such shameless promotion. I thought by using it as an outro would make listeners chuckle or spit out their beverage as a reaction. Between comedians and deejays, they are similar types of performers: they interact directly with their audience; they stand up and perform, sometimes for an obscene amount of time in front of people. They are true masters of the stage. I’ve already said too much. You’re hungry, I’m hungry while writing this. If your ribs are touching, Try The Veal should be satisfying.
Oh, I skipped the first installment for no apparent reason. I just think this mix sounds better.
