If you live in LA and know a thing or two about mobile DJ’s and turntablism, then you should know that the World Famous Beat Junkies will be on tour celebrating 20 years as a crew, starting with a show at the Echoplex on 06/30/2012. 20 years! And I’ve been listening to them on the radio since the 1990’s! Crazy! This is a one time event for LA so check them out. Tickets are sold out, but there might be limited admission at the door so try to arrive early.
If you can’t make that event, then try to come out to Amoeba in Hollywood on Friday, 06/29/2012, to see them perform before their tour kicks off that Saturday.

Going down in Downtown Los Angeles – LIttle Tokyo area – the Museum of Contemporary Art will be exhibiting well-known graffiti art work from the 1970’s to the present from notorious cities of New York City to Los Angeles. Be sure to check it out from now, until the 8th of August. LA is the first to feature such an exhibit (YES! We beat out NYC first!).

If you are not heading down (or up, depending on your location) to Coachella like me, then check out Trebles & Blue‘s album titled’ The Blue Note.’ A jazz musician based out in LA, this is one person you DO NOT want to sleep on.
