In my column this week, I write about missing the Juan Maclean’s set at last Friday’s Sing Sing at the War Room and Juan’s apparent disappointment with the evening. But, Juan and I got a few things wrong, according to the night’s promoter Death of the Party’s Clayton Vomero:

[Juan] was booked to play an hour set. Which he did.

DJ Mel was considered the headliner for that event and played immediately after Juan with three songs played by Zack and I in between. We did not kick Juan off as your article implies and he did not “end his set early”. In all promotion leading up to the event it was made very clear that Juan was playing an early set. As for us asking if Barfly could “rap over his set”, that’s completely ridiculous. We asked Juan if he had any objections to Barfly announcing his name.

So, my mistake: I thought Juan Maclean was the headliner (as did everyone I was with that night, as Juan seemed to think), and I took him at his word re: his set time and the events of the evening.

Another error: In the print version of this preview of Decibel Festival, the Decibel Kick-Off Party/Death of the Party Showcase is incorrectly referred to as just the “Decibel Kick-Off Party.” I sincerely regret the omission.
