Across from Interscope Records in Santa Monica CA is a private venue called The Thom Thom Club. My understanding is that it’s maintained by the label to facilitate listening parties and smaller music biz soirees.
It also serves as a testing facility. With a state-of-the-art sound system, any artist who may be recording at the Interscope compund can simply pop over and witness what their track sounds like in a nightclub. What a useful tool!
I have DJed there a few times. And I have always been intrigued by this neon sign, which hangs in the DJ booth:
…except last night when I pulled the string so I could photograph it.
Big up to Deb Parr.
