"I got the gig for Contra Sonic when I attended the Catapult weekend earlier this year. While I had entered, I didn't make the cut this year, but a band (On the Fly) that I suggested enter, did make it. They were appreciative and paid the entrance fee for the weekend," says Eric. "While I was there I was determined to 'network' and come away with not only contacts, but at least one gig. I attended the techno/alt workshop where I met Penelope [Weinberger] and Jeremiah [Seligman, a.k.a. dJ improper] and I asked to come up to Glen Echo to call."
