iParties downunder

“It’s Friday night in Melbourne, and at a corridor-sized club in the CBD the music is pumping but there are no turntables in sight. Two pint-sized iPods – those ubiquitous MP3 players with dangling white earphones – are running the show instead, churning out songs by Madonna, the Strokes and all musical points in between.

Tonight, at what is believed to be Australia’s only iParty (or iPod dance party), punters are given the opportunity to DJ. Choosing two songs from a selection of nearly 10,000, they wait like shoppers at a deli counter, until their number is beamed onto a laptop screen.”
