Hey. I represent a group of DJs who are trying to start up a local scene. We have been to some big parties in Atlanta and we're really sad that we don't have that kind of thing here, and we want to try to encourage it in this area. Anyway, we have been working really hard for a really long time, and we have an event coming your way very soon. It's at the Basement in Durham, the text flier follows:

The Ashtray Cult Production Group Presents Awakenings Halloween Costume Ball Sat. November 3rd, The Basement, Durham, NC
