Selection Reminder: VERSUS DJ competition tonight!


Because some people still miss our weekly Selections entirely, we begin a regular series: Selection Reminder. Consider yourself beaten over the head.


Friday, March 25 – Versus DJ competition

Trust us: We’d just as soon send our lovely readers out to a motel conference room for an evening with Rebecca Black and the ARK Music Factory than to any form of musical “battle” – bands or otherwise. So when we say you should check out DJ Cub’s carefully curated, thoughtfully organized DJ battle – at tiny Taste, no less – you know we’re not playing around. The first in what Cub hopes is a monthly event, Versus pits some of the area’s most well-known turntablists and scratchers – DJs Sureshot, Pranksta, Yoti, Dirty Sneakers, Insa and Y-Not – against each other for cash prizes and bragging rights. Tonight’s first round includes a performance by our pal S.K.I.P, who knows a thing or two about how to get a crowd moving. Simple, elegant and sure to be a blast. And bonus points to the DJ that best integrates Black’s deliciously bad “Friday” in the most creative way. Not really, but let’s call it a request from the peanut gallery. (with S.K.I.P.; 9 p.m. at Taste Restaurant, 717 W. Smith St.; $5; 407-835-0646;
