Local DJs weigh in on the scene in Eugene.

This April marks the first anniversary of the opening of Cowfish, the newest addition to Eugene’s fledgling club scene. The progressively modern space was immediately accepted into downtown’s “Barmuda Triangle” as an alternative to grimy dives (John Henry’s) and dimly-lit hipster hotspots (Jameson’s), instead providing a long white bar illuminated by a large fish tank containing the club’s namesake and, more importantly, a well-stocked DJ booth that rises above a lively dance floor. Since its opening, Cowfish has expanded its weekly parties and now hosts events every day of the week, providing a space for local DJs to explore their particular sounds in a town that’s previously struggled to establish a club identity.
