Jay Dee/Dilla/J Dilla/Dilla Dawg/Dill Withers/James Yancey both entered and left this world in the month of February, so it would be a travesty to let the month completely pass without paying proper tribute and celebrating the incredible music that was his life's work. With that thought in mind, tonight's party at Marvin should be amazing!
Thursday, February 25, 2010 9pm Marvin 2007 14th St NW DC
The all-star DJ lineup: RBI | Stylus | Book | JahSonic | 2-Tone Jones | Roddy Rod | J-Laine & Special Guests
$5 Donation (Proceeds to benefit The JDILLA Foundation)
The line-up of DJs alone should be enough to let you know that this event will be CRUCIAL. It's a CCCA & Decipher family takeover!
I'll be on the radio from 10-11pm (it's the last week of pledge drive-- please support WPFW and our show!!), but I fully intend on breaking land speed records getting from WPFW to 14th & U as soon as I get off-the-air!
Hope to see you there!
THIS JUST IN: I suddenly don't feel so bad about missing the first couple hours of the party at Marvin tonight... I've got an interview lined-up with Brand Nubian! They'll be at Liv on Saturday, so I'll help you get your mind right for that show as well. Yeah, that isht didn't happen... and that's why I never tease interviews before I've got the bamma(s) on the phone or sitting in the studio!
