All The ROCK You Want > Friday November 18th – w. Spins@33, Benny Blanco®, Marc Schapiro Birthday Trifecta


All The ROCK You Want FlyerIt’s quite rare that I DJ out these days (since havin’ Tyler), so, I’d love it if you are in the area to come out and say ‘hello’ or ‘yo!’, toss a few back and listen to some ROCK music (alt new wave by me) with a few of my favorite friends. I’d be so smitten to see ya.

Idle Hands is an awesome cozy venue lacking in hundreds of large screen tvs. They’ve been gracious enough to let Mike, Redboy and I control the sound system for the evening all while Mike and I also celebrate our Belated Birthdays alongside co-owner, Marc (did somebody say ‘shots’?) They’re also super incredible at selecting boutique brews, bourbons and whiskeys. A full bar for your other garden variety of drinks is available too, but I recommend you stick with what they do best and even ask one of the Bartenders for a recommendation.

We’re calling the night “All The ROCK You Want” because it spawned out of a conversation of … “Hey, Marc, what are we allowed to play?” and the response was…. “All the ROCK you want.” Mike and I thought that was a fitting and humorous title for us to vibe on for our little get together. It certainly ruled out that we would be throwing down any serious Four to the Floor beats all night (what we all typically play, right?), but, we kinda figured that given the Idle Hands Bar simple Mantra, ‘Bourbon. Beer. Rock.’ that that would be the case anyway.

Expect to hear a range of Alt Inspired Rock from 80’s, Early 90’s and even a few worthwhile bands of Today that you should be on top of if you’re not already (finger pointing at me). This DJ crew will most certainly try to one up the other from our Virtual Crates as we’ll be playing off our Laptop Traktor Rigs with a variety of Controller devices.
