WRAPUP - The Beginning and the End: Fundraiser & Party

This past Friday night I was lucky enough to be part of the festivities as Brooklyn director Kristin Wheeler threw a jumpoff at SOUTHPAW to raise funds for the production of her independent film, "The Beginning And The End." Great people and great times. Many thanks to Kristin, the homie Michelle McDevitt (Audible Treats stand UP!), Dan Sterling (my turntable cohort), and Isaac Betancourt with the dope camera work.

Next steps:
1) DJ wrap party
2) DJ premiere party
3) DJ Oscar party!!!

Even if you weren't there, Isaac captured the moment(s) fantastically...

Sega's "Yakuza 4" VIP Preview Party at Hiro Ballroom

Last night I had the pleasure of DJing for a private VIP preview of Sega's "Yakuza 4" (in stores next Tuesday). Open sushi bar, open biru bar, on-site tattoo artist, and a bunch of happy gamers getting the chance to check out "Yakuza 4" EARLY.

Here are a few flicks...

Shout to the homie Scott D (Soundmen POSSE) for hooking it up!


Just a heads up...I updated the "Production" and "Photos" sections of the blog (accessible here or through the top-nav). Check out the beats and flicks when you have the chance.
