Q&A w/ Penetrate
Riddler: You play for thousands of people a week around Houston. What’s the next big trend you see?
Penetrate: I play several different formats for a wide range of people every week, but the common denominator is having a set that is video driven. Because the cost of flat panel TV’s and projectors are very low, most venues are able to accommodate DJ’s video requirements quite easily. With the vast amount of video content available on the web combined with the latest software there is no reason that DJs should not be mixing both audio and video.
Riddler: You are the “Entertainment Director” for Triangle which owns five nightclubs with the only Houston venues ranked in the Top 100 across the Nation according to Nightclub and Bar Magazine. What kind of entertainment are you looking for to advance the Houston nightlife?
Penetrate: We are always striving to provide our customers with the best entertainment available. Staying on top of the trends, if not creating them is the key for us to take Houston nightlife to the next level. We travel the globe going to clubs and trade shows to get ideas on how to provide our patrons with the best nightlife experience possible. At the core of that is having the best DJs as well as the latest technology in our venues.
Riddler: What’s your favorite Houston Restaurant and why?
Penetrate: I can’t name just one restaurant because we are so fortunate to have such a diverse and strong pool of culinary talent in Houston. So, I will name the first three that come to mind. Shade, Sage 400 and Los Dos Amigos.
