Go See DJ Hurricane Tonight

DJ Hurricane will live on forever in my mind, if only for one line in the Beastie Boys' track, "Shake Your Rump":

"Hurricane, you got clout/Other DJs, he'll put your head out"

A close second in my heart, his brief, but essential appearance in the video for "Sabotage":

DJ Hurricane, who stood behind the Beastie Boys for years and has a musical career of his own right, is playing Playground tonight as part of the Flowing Wells Class of '93 reunion.

On a side note, if you're going to have a class reunion, it's probably super helpful to have Kade from HUB/Playground in your class, so you can have a badass party with a legendary (at least in my mind) DJ. My class reunion next year will probably be some crappy knock-off of a prom. Woo hoo.

The Caballeros have been nice enough, however, to invite everyone along, so you neither have to be 38 nor a graduate of that particular high school to attend. I have no idea what Hurricane will be playing, but for $5, it's totally worth finding out.
