A good mixer

San Diego Mixtape Society wants your cover-song compilation

By Alex Zaragoza
mixtape Get mixin'!

Remember back in the day when making a mix-tape meant standing by, patiently waiting, for a song to play on the radio so you could hit record on your tape deck? If you were born in the '90s you probably don't. But this is how people used to do it. Now, thanks to iTunes and other easy mixtape-making software, you don't have to hear wacky DJs throw out their call letters at the beginnings of your favorite songs.

The San Diego Mixtape Society is a group of people who get together, share playlists and, as their website says, "dork out over music." On Sunday, June 10, they're throwing their inaugural event at Bottlecraft (2161 India St. in Little Italy). They invite music geeks to create a mix-tape with the theme of "Between the Covers." No, that doesn't mean playing the Isley Brothers' "Between the Sheets" 12 times in a row; they want you to pick your favorite cover songs, put them on a CD or flashdrive and come on down to share. The person whose mix is most popular will receive a prize.

Along with fun cover songs, the event will have mini photography show featuring works by Leetal. So get on your computers and make a cool mix. Click here for more info on the event. If you feel so inclined, share some of your favorite cover jams in the comments section below.
