Always Never Yesterday
Welcome to Always Never Yesterday, an occasional newsletter about music, art, opportunity and good times. I hope you like it.



I'm excited to announce the launch of the Always Never Yesterday Podcast series!

You can look forward to exclusive mixes and interviews (see below) from all my favorite DJs. Our first mix comes from an absolute sweetheart (and staple of the West coast DJ scene): David Sylvester.

Listen to David's recording from Spookitinis 2016 and be sure to follow Always Never Yesterday so you never miss an episode.


On the occasion of David Sylvester's podcast for ANY, I convinced him to answer some questions that are sorta about the future.

What are you gonna wear tomorrow?

Tomorrow is Monday, so I’m wearing typical Portland-weather-resistant office fare. I’m lucky that I like my job, and that it creates positive change in the world. Whenever I’m not working my day job, I’m trying to create joy and undermine oppression through music.


Do you think time travel is possible?

We are all traveling through time. It’s just that we’re all traveling at the same rate and in the same direction. Until...


What happens when we die?

That’s when we stop traveling through time. The chemical processes that create our consciousness end, and everything that makes us who we are disintegrates. It’s all just organic matter, after all. There is no afterlife, but that does not mean life isn’t meaningful.


What do you want for your birthday?

A big homosexual gang bang, obviously.


If you were an architect, what would you build? (dock, airport, shed, bridge, museum, etc..)

I’m sure I would be obsessed with refurbishing decrepit industrial spaces and turning them into nightclubs.


What song sounds like the future to you?

I have to name two songs; both sound like they were delivered from a distant future, where technology is indistinguishable from magic. “XLB” by Pearson Sound is like somersaulting through space at light speed. “Necronomicon” by Matrixxman sounds like if the entire Internet of Things became sentient and instantly had a neurotic meltdown.


Any gigs coming up?

On October 18th I’m DJing with Jackal at the Flaggers PDX 1 year anniversary kink party:


On October 28th I have the immense honor of playing with Prosumer. The party is Spend the Night at the Liquor Store, and I am thrilled to be there alongside residents Ben Tactic and Graintable.


I’m also involved with a really awesome group of people planning something special for next year in Portland… Stay tuned.

I recently came across this instagram account that focuses on LGBT history.
It's worth following and getting a daily dose of perspective


I met Alicia Toldi this past weekend at the Epicenter Summer Summit (which was AMAZING!) and she was telling me about her recent project: Pineywood Atlas.

The project is described as:
Piney Wood Atlas is a collaboration between Alicia Toldi and Carolina Porras. We are two artists visiting and cataloguing small and emerging artist residencies across the country. Our project is an ongoing process that will continually contribute to a multimedia tour log of our travels and findings, and help connect the dots between artists and artist residencies.

The final collection is going to be stunning, but in the mean time you can go check out a list of great Artists Residencies on the West Coast

ENJOY helps you determine if the sunset or sunrise is going to be prettyt. You could argue that this kind of take the joy and surprise out of sunset hunting, but on the other hand its a really cool tool.

So if the sunset is looking cute you should grab some friends and some cheap champagne and go out there and enjoy it!
