The Day for Night WATMM fam comes down from another insane weekend in Houston. Cheers to DEFUNKT for the real reasons for the season: afterparties featuring Ceephax, Richard Devine, Bogdan Raczynski & more.
In December 2016, the snareup Discord (née watmm_dfn) was used to initiate face-to-face contact between WATMM attendees of the Day for Night festival in Houston, Texas, notably for Aphex Twin's first US appearance in 8 years. This year, Ladalaika and Greystar run this commemorative show with the snareup community as Whitley, Kattin, and a bunch of watmm snarpers are busy meeting up in Houston for round 2. Houston, we have a WATMM.

Phudo's holding down the fort, despite a nearly-missing feline, with Whit and Kat beaming in from NYC, with undertones of mayhem cause by time zone dysincronicity and in-person distractions from Kat's snarey pals.
