When: Sat., Oct. 20, 9 p.m. 2012
J-Live hosts HOT vs. DOPE 1, the first installment of a new monthly residency that's all about shaking up the party soundtrack. Blending the best and brightest of both commercial and underground funk, soul, reggae, and hip-hop, J-Live and DJ Deliver go head-to-head on the turntables spinning a barrage of both classic and obscure tracks. Sean Fahie and Eric Nine will have art on display as well. Ladies are free all night. Dudes get in free before 11 p.m. If you show up later than that you gotta fork over $5.
Price: $5 (after 11 p.m.)
